Advancements in nonlinear editing technology have enabled directors to modify their film project at any point during the post process. This freedom provides significant creative flexibility. However, the technologies for sound and film editing are not fully integrated and pose a challenge for sound editors keeping sync with film edits and changes. This paper introduces new workflows and technologies that enable sound editors to work in tandem with the changing film and automate manual processes in a collaborative non-linear environment. These new workflows and changing technologies will be described using a real-world motion picture case study - Lord of The Rings.
