I know I haven’t been in the post-production realm as long as others have but this is a huge deal, correct? I’m going to be frank here and probably piss-off a lot of Adobe loyalists, but I’ve never taken Premiere seriously. I’ve always considered it a joke. While I was a freshman in film school (2005) and one of the students was complaining about Avid being confusing, my Editing 101 professor literally laughed when the student mentioned Premiere.

The new music video for MGMT's "Congratulations" is striking and unusual. Framed in widescreen as it chronicles the slow decay of a strange (pet?) animal against a desert landscape, the carefully assembled story ends on a note that may be depressing, baffling or uplifting, depending on your point of view. Most importantly, it strikes a chord with fans, who have made the video an online hit. Film & Video caught up with Cut + Run founder Steve Gandolfi, who edited the clip, for a quick...

Earlier this year there was a big flap about the MPEG LA’s AVC License terms for H.264 video, and how it affects content creators on the web. We did our own post on the complicated topic here. Well it seems that the MPEG LA was listening, and in a recent announcement they’ve extended the free web-distribution terms of the AVC/H.264 License from a 2015 expiration date to "through life of license."

Earlier this year, Adobe released a new update to After Effects with a great round of new features and additions. Probably the most notable change is that this new version of the software operates as a native 64-bit application. When I purchased my 8-core Apple Mac Pro, I added 20GB of memory, but honestly the option to use all of that memory has been limited until the new 64-bit architecture of Snow Leopard. In addition, there have been few creative programs that have taken advantage of the...

A few months ago I rather rapidly acquired a new job – my first on a feature, a stereoscopic stop-motion animation. But I’m not working in the editing department. They’ve been in place now for some time. I’m working in Previs and VFX. On an Avid.
