Bill Warnewr is the man who had the vision, he's the man who made this happen. In this, the first of a five part series, Bill explains the frustration he felt at the linear editing process in a tape-based world and how he, turned this frustration to find a solution to the problem. As a result the world of editing has never been the same. Where once tape-based suites and film cutting rooms dominated, now the electronic non-linear way has become the accepted process.

Now Charley Douglass’s original machine from the ’50s, like everything else, comes in a digital format. Still, it contains titters, guffaws, snickers, and chuckles of varying lengths.

We all know this fact: The Canon DSLRs (5D, 7D, 1D) use the H.264 codec for the video they shoot and wrap that into a .mov QuickTime. While Final Cut Pro does work with .movs, these H.264 versions are clunky to edit requiring much rendering when in a FCP timeline. H.264 wasn’t designed to be a robust edit format anyway so the files need to be transcoded into something more edit friendly.
