Here's is something I would like to share with you all.

Sometimes when one is recording a sound-take for a feature, drama etc, there is a soundbite in the track that is a worth mentioning in the soundreport. Church bells, door slam, whatever. It even doesn't have to be for the current production, just a nice sound in general.

Nowadays we use the metadata in the sound files to make a remark of this. The postproduction sound studio can easily search for keywords in the metadata corresponding with these sound files.

Is it an idea to have of a keyword, that's not a common word, but a word we can use in the metadata for soundbites like this.

For example the word "gift". If one search on the word gift in all the metadata of the entire production, all these nice soundbites popping in one list...

W/T / or VO / or ATMOS and a description in the notes of the 644

Also you can can add a verbal at the time to relate to scene number(s)

I think "production effects" apply to any unique noise that is recorded cleanly and is useful to post for sound design.  

In post I often create seperate PFX tracks during a dialog edit, which aids in M&E creation.
