      Jump Cuts: The Good, The Bad, of the Discontinuous

      September 15, 2016, 6:41 pm
      Recently I asked the question to the Twitter-verse to get some insight from my fellow editors. Jump Cuts in an interview. Style or lazy? Used in personality features or mini docs on a person. Popular on YouTube – acceptable elsewhere? — Brian Mulligan (@BKMeditor) September 9, 2016   The reason for posing the question was […]

      101 Burning Questions Answered about Smoke 2013

      June 19, 2012, 9:34 am
      Autodesk Smoke is now available in its first Pre-Release Trial. I am sure you have many questions, so here are a few answers. I have been a beta tester for Smoke 2013, and have been a long time user. So beyond that, I have no inside knowledge of the development decisions.

      Unlink and Relink your media in Smoke

      January 30, 2012, 10:44 am
      Things have been pretty busy lately. I'm based in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the biggest sporting event in the world is in town. The Super Bowl. It's on NBC this year, which also makes WTHR-TV "Your Super Bowl Station!" So I have been busy cutting promos and spots touting our Super Coverage. I am even cutting...

      Do you want to download the trial of Smoke for Mac, or get the 36 month free educational version? You don’t have to have a full blown MacPro, with a Kona Card, and Nvidia Quadro or a Thunderbolt Storage device to learn Smoke. In fact, I am running Smoke for Mac on this low end...

      Smoke: Unveiling the Mystery of History

      January 7, 2012, 5:12 pm
      Even after years on Smoke, sometimes it still amazes me. When working in local broadcasting, we have a lot of monthly clients. Footage and elements will get reused from month to month and spot to spot. So I have a project, that contains libraries of video and graphics. Some of these graphics are elements I have...

      Smoke Basics: Working with Source Clips

      December 31, 2011, 10:14 am
      Library vs. Editdesk The Library in Smoke is where you import your clips from various file or tape sources. The library acts as a safe for your clips and they are protected there from edits. The Editdesk is your desktop workspace where all editing is done. You can imagine an invisible wall between the Library...

      How to import clips via the Gateway

      December 30, 2011, 9:39 am
      To import clips for use in Smoke you will do it via the Gateway. Now the Gateway is just a fancy term for the connection between the Smoke UI and the drives where your clips are. It's very similar to AMA from Avid. You can choose to link to the clips directly from where they...
