Imagine the following situation:

  • The original version (OV) of a DCP or IMF package has already been delivered to the cinema or studio
  • Now certain frames need to be replaced (here: video frames from #280 to #329 of reel #1)
  • The delivery should be a smaller supplemental package that only contains the new frames

HINTS:

  • The usage of supplementals is very similar for DCPs and IMF packages
  • The replacement of frames is very similar for video and audio

To replace certain frames in a DCP or IMF package, just follow these steps:

1. Load the DCP or IMF package in easyDCP Creator+.

2. If you want to create a supplemental package, right-click on a track and choose "Supplemental > Enable for all Tracks":

Info: All tracks should be greyed out now, which means that they are just referenced and not included in the new supplemental package:

3. Move the playhead to the first frame you want to replace (here: frame #280). Then click on the scissors to split the reel/sequence:

Info: A reel should automatically be added to the composition (here: reel #2).

3. Now move the playhead to the next frame after the last frame you want to replace (here: frame #330). Then click on the scissors to split the reel/sequence:
