Everyone needs a summer break, right? (Did you notice how I didn’t use the word "deserve"?) So the Avid Screencast will be on summer hiatus until September 9th, while I will enjoy a nice vacation with my girlfriend and the the two kids in Greece. Until then, check out some old episodes. If you’re anything like me, you have forgotten pretty much everything by now, anyway!

28 July 2010<br><br> As an editor, one of the best things ever is to find a director that you work really well with.

There’s one duo, however, who have established a very specific style together over the years, and that’s Menke and Tarantino. Some themes that run throughout their work together (from an editing perspective) are long takes, wide shots, the emulation of various 1970’s era movie styles, and of course fun with the concept of time through the use of chapters.

If you work in the postproduction universe than you probably know that Apple introduced new Mac Pros today (or yesterday, Tuesday, depending on when you’re reading this). You probably also know that many folks were underwhelmed by what they introduced as the new Mac Pros are missing a few significant parts and pieces that many thought would be introduced when this refresh happened.

So Apple has rolled out their latest round of iMacs. I recently finally updated my trusty black MacBook to Snow Leopard, and disappointed myself when I’d forgotten that I can’t run the latest Final Cut Pro on it at ALL. So revisiting these iMacs, how are they for running the Final Cut Studio suite? And beyond can they, should you consider it as an editing platform?
