    What's New in Avid Media Composer 6.5

    September 11, 2012, 4:58 pm
    There was a huge buzz in the industry when we released Media Composer 6, Symphony 6, and NewsCutter 10 last year with 64-bit performance, third-party I/O workflows, stereoscopic 3D, hands-on Artist Series controller support, and a slick new interface. And now they're even better—meet the new Media Composer 6.5 family...

      Avid Screencast - Secondary Color Correction

      February 11, 2010, 8:53 am
      Secondary color correction is applying one correction to the image as a whole, but a different correction to a specific portion of the image. This can be necessary in a lot of situations, mostly when you need a different treatment of skin tones compared to the rest of your image.

      Film Editor Alex Rodriguez gets Animated

      February 11, 2010, 8:52 am
      After gaining Oscar attention for his work with director Alfonso Cuar??n on dystopian science-fiction drama Children of Men, Alex Rodr??guez worked on a couple of smaller projects before venturing into uncharted territory. After editing Gael Garc??a Bernal's directorial debut, Deficit, and the Bernal-starring Rudo y Cursi, Rodr??guez signed up for something completely different — Planet 51, a big-budget animated film produced in Madrid by Ilion Animation Studios, Handmade Films, and Antena 3...

      Getting Footage Before the Internet

      February 11, 2010, 8:52 am
      I posted this piece back in June 2008 after I had cleaned out a closet and found my old Highlander: Uncut editing package. It was cutting edge at the time but unfortunately this package is no longer for sale. Long before there was the opencut.org project, cheap digital camcorders and even Final Cut Pro there was always the question of where could you get footage for digital non-linear editing.

      What Makes for Good Editing?

      February 10, 2010, 8:49 am
      Compared to many of the other Oscar categories, "Best Film Editing" is often a tough one to predict. With "Best Cinematography," "Best Art Direction," and "Best Costume Design," for instance, you can clearly see how each nominee demonstrated a mastery of their craft and set themselves apart from their peers. With editing, however, aptly called "The Invisible Art" of cinema, what’s been left out is just as important as what ends up in the final cut.

      The Nominees of 09'

      February 10, 2010, 8:49 am
      For Oscar-nominated picture editors, 2009 may have been the year of the level playing field. Two lower-budgeted independent films––Neil Daniels’ Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, edited by Joe Klotz, and Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker, edited by Bob Murawski and Chris Innis––stand at opposite ends of the budget and conceptual spectrum from James Cameron’s lushly mounted and groudbreaking Avatar, edited by Cameron, A.C.E., Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E. and John Refoua, A.C.E...

      Bad Tattoo From an Editor's POV

      This may be a bad choice as it's a dead format already.

      OK, first I need to point out this old post from 2009. To summarize the part I want you to pay heed to, the HVR-1500 deck that I had SO MUCH trouble capturing with in FCP? Well, it is rock solid in Avid. Not one issue...not one slipped frame, not one dropped frame, not one reconnect issue. The Avid treats this like any old deck....or, NEW deck.

      Editor's Swiss Army Knife

      Most of us these days probably carry a USB stick with us pretty regularly, handy for getting files off client’s laptops and so forth, but it can also be your swiss army knife!

      Modern digital acquisition, post and distribution wouldn’t be possible without data rate reduction, AKA compression. People like to disparage compression, but I dare say that few folks...
