"No one goes to Jordan with just two days notice." This is what my sister's well-traveled Washington, DC insider friend said when she heard that our picture editing team had to get our crew and equipment packed up to head off to the Middle East. But that's exactly what The Hurt Locker team did during the height of the Iraq invasion’s "surge."

The management team at Avid has spent a lot of time spreading a message about a new "openness" initiative at the company, and one of the first concrete embodiments of that philosophy is the decision to support customers' use of Final Cut Pro on Avid's Unity MediaNetwork and Isis shared-storage systems. (Avid doesn't want to say which third-party tools, specifically, they're looking at now, but the most logical next step would be to qualify Adobe's CS4 suite of creative apps.) StudioBytes...

The five panelists, along with moderator (and ACE President) Randy Roberts (One From the Heart), swapped stories about breaking into the business that occasionally dated back to those bygone days of linear film editing. The understanding throughout the evening was that, while some...

David Rennke has been an editor for more than 20 years and has used every editing system imaginable—but always finds himself gravitating back to Avid. On his latest project, editing King Hollis’ independent film Pearl, Rennke used Avid Media Composer 3.0.5.

Recently, I worked on a show where the budget allowed me to stay on as the stage editor. The mixer on the show occasionally used a de-click/de-crackle program during pre-dubs. I knew about a few of these plug-ins, but seeing one in action piqued my interest to find out just how much they can do.

PCI attachment (based on the PCIe architecture) provides maximum bandwidth at minimum cost per storage unit by eliminating the secondary bus bridges required for all other connection methods.
