  • The Craft of Editing

    The Craft of Editing

    February 23, 2012, 3:37 pm
    The craft of editing video/film/whatever you want to call it, is a skill. The operation of a non-linear editing system is one thing but what about the craft? How do you learn what makes a good edit and what doesn't? I don't know if I have the answers but I've cut many projects, with about 65-70 percent destined for broadcast.

      SOUND

      Tuning A Room

      August 4, 2015, 12:04 am
      Tuning a room requires a systematic approach that addresses all the necessary components of quality sound in order to achieve an emotional connection with our music. All sound must be heard and they all must be defined. Balance, definition, and separation must all be addressed. Finally, you must do no harm.

      10 Dos and Donts for Cinema 4D (Startup Users)

      August 4, 2015, 12:04 am
      This video is a bit experimental, slightly different to my normal tutorials. I take a look at 10 things that I think are important (and useful) when you are starting out using Cinema 4D. Perhaps if you are a beginner to Cinema 4D, this could be an interesting watch.

      Managing FCPX Media Labs for Maximum Sanity & Mini

      August 4, 2015, 12:03 am
      Editor's Note: A conversation came up the Apple Final Cut Pro X Techniques forum about the challenges of working with large groups of students in a high school media lab that we felt would apply to many more people than were on that thread. And actually, we think there' a lot of great advice here not just for teachers, but for ANYONE working in a multi-user, shared storage FCPX environment.

      Why Should 2D Animation be Abandoned? (Part 2 –

      August 4, 2015, 12:03 am
      Last time we looked at reasoning animators might consider giving up on 2D/Hand-drawn completely and moving on to the future that is 3D/CGI animation. Today we take a look at a few more of these ideas and conclude with a possible justification for keeping the old “dead” art form around a little longer (aka, forever).
