    Better editing with custom screen layouts

    June 18, 2010, 12:49 pm
    One of the handy features of modern NLEs is the ability to rearrange the interface around specific editing tasks. Changing the user interface windows for editing, mixing, color correction or effects will make easier work of any session. Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer and Apple Final Cut Pro are all designed with a similar bin, window and timeline layout that offers infinite possibilities to customize the UI, including keyboard and button commands.

      Hanley & Hill: Howard's Editing Tag-Team

      July 5, 2009, 3:56 pm
      Editors Dan Hanley and Mike Hill, who won Academy Awards for film editing on Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 (1995), have known each other since the early 1970s when they were both working in the Paramount Studios shipping department. Hanley became friends with Robert James Kern, Jr., who was the editor on the sitcom Happy Days (on which Howard starred) at Paramount and the editor of Howard’s first directorial films. Kern’s father, Robert Kern, Sr., and his uncle, Hal C. Kern, both won Oscars for...

      Why Editors Complain a LOT Today

      July 3, 2009, 3:54 pm
      There was an interesting article this week in Daily Variety which was ostensibly about the American Cinema Editors pre-announcement of an award that they’ll be giving to Avid at their awards dinner in February (actually, I suppose I should say that we’ll be giving at our dinner, since as of June 2nd, I am now a member of ACE — you can leave your congratulations at the door). Variety takes the slant that...

      ACE Honours Avid. REALLY!

      July 2, 2009, 3:52 pm
      What at first seemed like a rather ho-hum, "wasn’t that to be expected" announcement from Avid turns out to be quite a bit more; at least according to the Variety article...

      Remote Editing on Avid DS

      July 1, 2009, 3:48 pm
      If you landed the high-profile, remote editing gig for the Final Four games of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, you know you would need more than a laptop NLE since you’d be cutting all the special graphic elements, teases, on-air promos and bumpers for ESPN.
