During the past few weeks, I have been testing out and "kicking the tires", on Grass Valley’s Edius 6. Edius was originally created by Canopus, and was bought out by Grass Valley. They have continued to improve upon its structure providing a large selection of codec support. Before I dive into my review, I would like to thank Grass Valley for graciously providing me with this copy of Edius 6.

Singular Software made the announcement just the other day that their flagship product PluralEyes has been released for Avid Media Composer. As we all know PluralEyes is automagic software that "listens" to the audio of clips in an edit timeline and then attempts to automatically sync them. I say attempts but I’ve had great luck with it syncing some very difficult things and the Avid version seems to work quite well. PluralEyes for Media Composer is on sale for $119 until February 21.

Last year was a wonderful one for 3D. In terms of worldwide and domestic box-office grosses, six of the top-10 movies released in 2010 were in 3D. And by year’s end there were almost two dozen models of integrated 3D cameras and camcorders and literally dozens of models of two-camera 3D rigs.

Singular Software has announced the DualEyes for Mac, just after a short public beta period. DualEyes is a standalone audio/video sync utility. If you prefer recording your video and audio separately, because your device's audio feature leaves a lot to be desired, DualEyes is just for you. It takes video clips with poor native audio and high quality audio recordings and synchronizes them, enabling you to use the footage with almost any video-editing software.

While the New York edition of EditFest—sponsored by the American Cinema Editors—has whetted East Coasters' appetite for advanced training and talks with top edit talent, the fact that it unspools only once a year has left many wishing for more. That wish came true on a cold evening in January with the launch of EditFest Shortcuts, a one-on-one screening and Q&A dedicated to explicating an experienced editor's career. Author Bobbie O'Steen, well known for her interviews at both EditFest LA

"Final Cut has shown no improvement in years. I’m reaching the conclusion that (Apple) is a company that wants to make iPhones and iPads." -Harry Miller, A.C.E. I hope he is wrong. FCP is not only a great NLE, but it has, hands down, made AVID a better system and company.

The 2011 Oscars are just around the corner, so this seems like a good time to reflect on what award-winning editing is all about.
