    MPEG-2 Encoders, Part 1

    August 3, 2010, 2:36 pm
    The last time I remember writing about MPEG-2 encoders was back in 1996, the year the Olympics was held in Atlanta (and what a time that was). But just last week, I got a random call about MPEG-2 encoding for DVD from Emmy Award-winning producer Connie Simmons. By way of background, Simmons produced a PBS Series entitled Landscapes through Time with David Dunlop, which began airing nationally in June 2008.

      Script Based Editing: Avid’s Untapped Ecosystem

      August 25, 2017, 5:18 am
      For the editing of films, TV shows and other videos in the art of narrative storytelling, many if not most editors use the edit system called Avid Media Composer. One of its shining gems is its ability to integrate paper-like scripts right inside of it, using what we call a script-based editing interface. It allows editors to click on words in a film, TV show or documentary’s script and jump right to the corresponding video itself. Scripts or interview transcripts are synced-up manually by an assistant editor or automatically using an option in Media Composer called ScriptSync.

      REVIEW - ScreenFlow 7 from Telestream

      August 24, 2017, 5:38 am
      I’ve been doing online training and tutorials for a while now. A long while, and I’ve done recording on both Mac and Windows, and I’ve used the free screen recording apps as well as the paid apps, so I’ll get this out of the way right now. ScreenFlow is the absolute best screen recording application out on the market today. It has not only the best quality, but it’s also super simple to use, and the exports are surprisingly very quick. Well, the newest version has just been released, ScreenFlow 7, so let’s see if it’s worth the upgrade!

      20 Great Movies That Revolutionized Film Editing

      August 23, 2017, 5:01 pm
      Editing is one of the most important steps in any filmmaking process, and yet, if it is done well, it will often be ignored. Hollywood taught us that a good montage was “invisible,” impossible to notice.

      Final Death Comes to Final Cut 7

      August 23, 2017, 2:04 pm
      Final Cut Pro, the application with which many of us learned to edit, and launched companies and careers, will no longer open in the newest OS from Apple, High Sierra. Emails went out to users (thanks to Josh Granger for informing us) who currently use FCP-7 that it won't open anymore if you upgrade. While certain older support apps like Cinema Tools haven't opened for several generations of updates, Final Cut has continued to, and there are companies and even TV shows (See House of Cards) that continue to use it on a day to day basis.

      Do you have a set of common, repeating editing tasks that you need to remember for every Final Cut Pro project? Maybe you have a bunch of sticky notes on your monitor? Or a list taped to the wall?

      5 Must-Know Video Effects for Premiere Pro Editors

      August 23, 2017, 2:04 pm
      If you’re a working video editor and have managed to stay away from After Effects, you’re probably used to searching through Premiere’s capabilities and experimenting with different ways to create unique effects. Premiere has plenty of in-house effects for editors staying away from the other motion graphic programs. Here are a few effects you might not know are at your fingertips.
