      AMERICAN HAUNTING - WEEK 1

      June 25, 2012, 9:19 am
      OK, it was only half a week.  I received the drive via UPS on Wed, a 3GB OWC drive with eSATA and FW800 connections, and began my cut.  Actually, I began on Tuesday by reading the script.  it is 98 pages long.  That normally indicates that the end product will be 98 min too, as...

      Still not using it. Why? I don't like the editing paradigm it employs. Nuff said.

      A Haunting Script

      June 20, 2012, 10:13 am
      I got the script for my episode today.  It reads exactly like a narrative script.  And, well, it is.  Full of recreations, and written in normal script form. Now, I can't post the script online, not even one page.  But…

      VIDEO OUT OF PPRO CS6 - SWITCHING MONITORING

      May 10, 2012, 9:56 am
      It started with this thread on the Adobe forums.  And then Mike Nichols (@TheEditDoctor) did this video showing the issue he was having with his Blackmagic card and CS6 and how it wouldn't act like it does in FCP. Basically the issue is this:  In FCP, if we were using a 1080p 23.98 or 720p 23.98 sequence, and...

      WHAT DID HE EDIT THAT WITH?

      I know what you all are asking yourselves: "What did Shane edit that NAB wrap-up video with?" Plenty of you asked on Twitter, and I know you WOULD have asked on my blog in the comments…but I offered up the information before you could. Because I knew you’d ask. So yes, I used Adobe Premiere CS5.5...

      DEVALUED?

      April 13, 2012, 2:54 pm
      A friend of mine who now works for a major NLE manufacturer recently emailed me with a philosophical question: "I've wondered openly objectively if the lower price points of FCPX or other NLEs doesn't by extension create an expectation in professional circles (on behalf of clients, agencies, prod cos, etc.) that the skill set to...

      TOP 10 THINGS I WILL MISS ABOUT FCP

      March 29, 2012, 8:11 pm
      I started this blog in 2005, when I made my leap from editing on an Avid in standard definition…to editing with FCP in high definition…thus the name Little Frog in High Def (Little Frog being my Indian name from my youth).
