Having just seen Alfred Hitchcock's "The Wrong Man" for the first time, I was particularly taken by one sequence early in the film.

By now anyone who has ever heard of Final Cut Pro has heard that Apple shipped Final Cut Pro 7 as part of the new Final Cut Studio on July 23. It wasn’t the total FCP reboot that many had hoped and consists mainly tacked on new features. The early word was that it probably should have been called Final Cut Pro 6.5 (and I agree) but you can’t make a splashy new release with only half a number advancement can you?

I just recently finished compositing some shots for a live-action Disney DVD film (soon to come) involving talking animals. This is the first time that I’ve really done anything like that, and although I wasn’t editing, I could appreciate how difficult it can be to edit a film with animal actors as I saw the shots come in. And it’s difficult regardless of if they have moving mouths or not. Animals aren’t really "acting" on their free will as humans do, so discerning which take is the best has to with a mixture of the action being performed properly (pun intended) as well as juxtaposing the action with another action to convey an accurate sense of emotion, which 95% of animals (arguably) don’t naturally exhibit.

ARRI creates and manufactures the ARRIFLEX D21 digital cinema camera. The camera generates raw image sequences which can be recorded on to digital recording systems such as S.Two’s DFR system and Codex Digital’s field recorders. ARRIRAW files are saved to these devices, preserving the maximum fidelity of the image captured by the D21 cinematography camera. The ARRIRAW Toolkit allows MacOSX users to work with these ".ari" files natively in Final Cut Studio and any Quicktime enabled application.
