I started my new job on Tuesday, and this time I find myself in front of an Avid Media Composer. And what’s REALLY cool about it, is that it is the lastest version of Media Composer. When I interviewed I asked what version they were running, and they said MC Adrenaline version 2.7.7. That’s pretty old, but a fine version.

We polled a few familiar faces on what they'd like to ask JC Bond, one of the additional editors on Alice in Wonderland, if they had the chance. JC agreed to answer them directly so we're posting the full Questions below-which covers the film's Avid workflow, editing in 2D vs. 3D, and much more. (Alice in Wonderland hits theaters today, so go check it out!)

Multi-cam shows are recorded from first scene to last in front of an audience with three or four cameras. The cameras, labeled A, B, C, and D, are maneuvered by a cabled gang of four camera operators who travel up and down the stage, getting their assigned shots. D camera is frequently called X camera or referred to as the Iso camera as it’s often an isolated camera, running independent of A, B, and C. The Iso cam picks up isolated angles and may run only 50% of the time.

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.
