I’ve been a bit busy lately, both personally and professionally, which has resulted in a bit of time between posts. Personally, I moved (from Woodland Hills, in the San Fernando Valley, to Playa Vista, near Marina Del Rey) about 3 weeks ago. This represents a kind of homecoming for me, only a year after coming home from a few years in Florida, as I lived in the Marina on and off for almost 10 years.

I recently found a weird glitch exporting an animation file from MPEG streamclip 1.9.2. For whatever reason it really bogged down nuke, making the tracker take 4x longer. This didn’t happen with prores, and it didn’t happen with an animation video exported out of compressor. It only bogs down with the animation codec from streamclip.

If you’re a serious Final Cut Pro user then you are probably aware of Digital Rebellion and the tools that they make. Be it their popular Video Footage Calculator, Preference Manager for Final Cut Studio or the recently released FCP Versioner (which I reviewed on PVC) these tools tend not to be flashy but rather very, very useful.

We will be doing another interview, similar to the one we just did with Daryl Baskin last week, but this time with Lance Stubblefield. Lance has worked on LOST since the first season, starting as an assistant editor and has made the jump to editor for an episode last season and a few times this season.

This project came simultaneously with the cheapskate version of the creative controller. I decided to do both, because they have different results and levels of difficulty. To sum up the premise: in an edit I want to give the reviewer the ability to stop and start playback and scroll through the edit using an old NES controller.

Few picture editors other than Anne V. Coates, A.C.E., have collaborated with such a wide variety of directors over a time span well surpassing half a century. With an editing career of 63 years––and still counting––Coates arguably has been working in cutting rooms longer than anyone else in film history, recently surpassing the impressive longevity of legendary editor Margaret Booth’s work history. And she’s not about to stop now; she’s currently considering two projects.

Last October, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences held several nights dedicated to the art and craft of picture editing. One of those evenings was entitled "Anne Coates: Profile of an Editing Master," which featured clips from many of her films.
