6. Edit your footage in the timeline until you are absolutely to the point were you are picture locked. Do not spend time making titles or credits because they will need to be redone in the online. Just make place holders at exact durations the titles will be.  Note that end credits can be estimated.  Your sound mixer can leave the end credit sound and music so you can fade out when you have the final credits.

7. Prepare to sound mix. Schedule a time with Susanne Kraft to do a sound mix if you haven't already.

8. Export an .aaf AND Quicktime file for sound editor (not the mixer) to use in ProTools.
