When it comes to increased productivity and better efficiency while editing, saving time every place an editor can will help increase that productivity and efficiency. And we all know saving time is the client’s favorite thing as saving time means saving money. My favorite time saver in Final Cut Pro has been to remap the majority of the default keyboard setup. Since I began using FCP way back around 1999, one of my earliest thoughts was that the default keys weren’t very well thought out.

It was just over a year ago when I posted a post that began the "Twitter about editing" experiment. I had signed up for Twitter around a year before that but really never used the service since I didn’t have a good group to follow nor did I really know what to talk about.

A couple of great suggestions for creating flawless H.264 Quicktime—and Flash!—movies popped up in the comments section of my last article. They deserve their own article.

There’s nothing like waking up in the morning and realizing that your chief marketing tool is probably driving away more clients than it’s attracting. I both love, and hate, Quicktime. Flash is the universally accepted method of viewing video on the web but it doesn’t seem to be an easy or cost-effective tool for those of us who want to manage our own showreel web sites.

Last year I wrote a review of various software-based waveform/vectorscopes. In that review I included my praise and criticism of Adobe OnLocation, though technically it’s a lot more than just simple wave/vector software.

I can barely watch television anymore. Seriously. It seems that no one knows how to edit anymore, and the culprit in this demise is the non-linear editor. Allow me to explain. About 20 years ago, I went to Los Angeles to visit a friend that had landed a producing job at KNBC. During my tour of the station, my friend towed me through the edit suites. Above the door was a huge banner that...

In a study released in mid-2008, neuroscientists noted that certain styles of motion pictures are capable of exerting "considerable control over brain activity." In the study that used fMRI imaging to study neocortex response, researchers found that the level of control exerted was linked directly to the film’s editing and directing style.
