      HOW FCX SAVED AVID

      October 7, 2011, 3:11 pm
      A friend of mine mentioned that at a user group meeting, an editor said, "Apple was literally on the verge of killing Avid and taking over the Post Production market. Instead they gave a tremendous lifeline to Avid and said ‘here’s a gift from us to you. We're fucking up our...

      FCP & THE FUTURE

      September 28, 2011, 9:02 am
      First, I'd like to point out two excellent articles about FCP-X and the future of post. First, a blog post by Oliver Peters, and then a Creative Cow Article by Walter Biscardi. Both very good and in depth. OK, now on to me. I finally downloaded the FCP-X trial and explored the application for a full day.

      ADOBE PREMIERE PRO CS5.5 GOTCHAS

      September 13, 2011, 9:24 am
      OK, while I am also transitioning some projects to Avid Media Composer (that I know fairly well, having used it for 10 years before I switched to FCP), I am also transitioning to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 as well. Because in playing with it, I find it VERY similar to Final Cut Pro in many...

      AVID MC, FRAME RATE CONVERSION AND COLOR

      September 13, 2011, 9:24 am
      OK, I can finally come up for air. August was a VERY busy month for me. On top of my regular day job, I took on two side jobs (after hours work). One was really easy…online a 23 min reality show. That was straightforward and I was able to do it in two four-hour nights.

      DNxHD with Embedded Multichannel Audio

      August 29, 2011, 10:02 am
      I am onlining a show that has a new delivery requirement…not tape, but rather a Quicktime file with embedded audio. OK, this isn’t new…this is new to Avid. This is something I have been doing for a while in FCP land. Delivering ProRes or HQ files with 8 to 12 channels of embedded audio.

      So Apple came out with this shiny new operating system with a really cool name…LION. And you are thinking to yourself, "Hey, I'd like to install that new OS on my computer." OK, I can dig that. But there are a few things you should do FIRST, before you install. Especially if you use this

      AVID MC TIP - Separating Media by Project

      July 29, 2011, 4:20 pm
      OK, to most of you from FCP land, keeping media separate by project is a no-brainer. Because FCP did that for you. In your Capture Scratch drive you had a Capture Scratch folder, and render folders, and in there you'd have different folders for different projects: If you wanted to manage it even more, you...
