    Useful Tools for Editors: Disksomnia

    April 3, 2012, 3:03 pm
    Way back many moons ago the folks over at Digital Heaven recognized the need for a simple tool that would keep your hard disks from spinning down while you're busy pounding away on Final Cut Pro. You know the situation: you're editing like a madman when suddenly everything grinds to a halt as some errant hard disk has spun down and you hear that tell-tale sign of one of them spinning back to life (often a very annoying thing in external Western Digital My Book drives).

      Advice on Making Your Own Film Analysis Videos

      June 26, 2017, 4:42 am
      In recent years, we've seen a huge influx in video essays about film, which is not only giving students of film access to the kind of film analysis you tend to only get in film school, but it's also changing the way film analyses are produced and exhibited altogether.

      Moonlight Co-Editor Nat Sanders Talks Quitting You

      June 25, 2017, 3:04 pm
      Though his nomination for a Best Editing Oscar for Moonlight wasn’t as monumental as his co-editor Joi McMillon’s—she was the first African-American to receive a nod for the award—Nat Sanders’ collaboration with director and former classmate Barry Jenkins was equally instrumental in achieving the film’s breezy cutting style that offsets even its most brooding moments.

      LumaFusion Editing App for iPad

      June 25, 2017, 3:04 pm
      Pardon me for initially being skeptical, as I’d heard this story numerous times before: “So and so has produced an amazing app that finally lets you truly edit videos on the iPad.” As a Final Cut Pro X devotee who’s often seen tethered to a Mac, I guess you can say I have trust issues when it comes to such lofty claims.

      Even if you’re not an arachnophobe by nature, the half-human, half-spider nightmare that skitters into frame in the “Playtest” episode of Black Mirror‘s third season may have you thinking twice before you roll up a newspaper to tangle with that arachnid in your basement.

      New sound effects: Voices, guns, spaceships, plane

      June 25, 2017, 7:53 am
      This week on A Sound Effect, we have lots of elements that will flesh out your games. You will hear frozen footsteps caught just before snow fall, detailed servo sounds for your tiny machines, gunshots and gun handling from almost 30 different weapons, and interior and exterior spaceship sounds that are full of imagination. You will also hear two charming collections of male and female vocalizations, experimental-sounding induction coil pickups, and plane pass-bys that will place your audience right where you want them to be. Dig in!

      How to Use J-Cuts to Enhance Your Video Transition

      June 24, 2017, 3:09 pm
      J-Cuts can be described as having the sound enter the scene before the scene appears visually, or it can be used to play out a scene where the audio is used after the shot has ended. They're used in TV and movies, and they're a professional element that sets you and your style apart from those who just cut scenes together. This enables you to get a nice flow in your video, and it all blends and layers to make it more interesting and give your work more power.

      From rising YouTube stars to big Hollywood blockbusters, Adobe Premiere Pro has long been an industry standard when it comes to video editing. But like any piece of professional software, the list of advanced features comes with big potential and a steep learning curve. Because navigating the program can be both exciting and nerve-wracking for the unfamiliar, we asked the pros to share a few Premiere Pro tips.

      Turn Your Footage into Particles That React to Mus

      June 24, 2017, 3:08 pm
      We've all seen that effect in music videos in which a subject seems to glitch slightly to the beat of the song. I love that effect! It's kinetic and dynamic and a strange synesthetic experience that I've always wanted to use in my work, but figured it was much too complex and advanced for my limited expertise in VFX. However in this tutorial, editor Justin Odisho shows you just how simple (or at least, not super complicated) the effect is to create in Adobe After Effects, so you can be creating rhythmic particles in no time.
