The Industry Recognized Standard Q-Sheet Layout and Printing Software for Film and Television Post-Production Audio
Making track sheets is one of the most time consuming and non-creative parts of a sound editors job, but it must be done before edited tracks go to the stage to be mixed. Editors and assistants know making good track sheets is an art. Checkerboarding track sheets and knowing just how much space to leave between entries is a very time-consuming job. Forget one sound effect and you may have to re-do the entire track sheet by hand. Even then, everytime picture changes are made, all of the track sheets have to be remade as well.
Making track sheets is the kind of tedious work that computers were designed for. What used to take hours, can now be done in a fraction of the time. Computerized track sheets are also much easier to read in low lighting conditions.
Other companies have tried to automate cue sheet creation and have failed. Track-It is the first program which is designed by an editor, for other editors. Track-It prints film-style rerecording logs (or cue sheets). Track-It runs on any Macintosh computer with a color monitor, and can be learned in about an hour. It doesn't matter if you work with tape or film, Track-It supports both feet and frames, as well as SMPTE timecode. Track-It will auto-format or checkerboard tracks in both input and change modes. Track-It can be used on the dubbing stage during predubs to make top sheets.
Track sheets can be created manually or automatically. Track-It also works with most popular digital audio workstations. Custom versions of Track-It are available for Avid AudioVision, Avid AudioStation, Digidesign ProTools, Sonic Solutions, and Studer Editech Dyaxis II. Track-It also reads several CMX EDL formats, so it can be used with any number of electronic editing systems.
