    I've been at this a while

    January 20, 2013, 11:27 am
    For the past 18 months or so, many editors have been trying to figure out what they wanted to do in a “Post Final Cut Pro” era. Of course, they are completely discounting FCPX. I’ve met and spoken with several very accomplished editors who have never cut on anything but Final Cut Pro.

      So you’ve learned how to edit. You understand the basic concepts of editing. You understand the importance of a sequence. You’ve grasped screen direction. You understand the importance of tight shot. You know the rules, which are more guidelines than rules. So, you want to break some rules?

      District 9 Editor Makes the Cut

      March 23, 2010, 12:24 pm
      Vancouver film editor Julian Clarke has spent much of the last year hunkered down in an editing room in Toronto, working on a new Rachel Weisz film called The Whistleblower. The catch is, it was filmed in Romania. After each day of filming, film cans were sent by Fed-Ex across the Atlantic, where Clarke loaded them into the computer and went to work. "It created a several day delay, which is not ideal," he said...

      The Rough Cut

      March 23, 2010, 12:23 pm
      I am currently in the "rough cut" phase of my latest show. And this, to me, is the most difficult part. This is where I need to make something out of nothing. Well, not NOTHING, as there is a lot of stuff there that you use. But this is the part of the phase that I need to look at ALL of my somethings, and cull it down and string it out and arrange it in a way to tell a good story.

      The Man who "Made" Avid

      March 22, 2010, 12:21 pm
      Bill Warnewr is the man who had the vision, he's the man who made this happen. In this, the first of a five part series, Bill explains the frustration he felt at the linear editing process in a tape-based world and how he, turned this frustration to find a solution to the problem. As a result the world of editing has never been the same. Where once tape-based suites and film cutting rooms dominated, now the electronic non-linear way has become the accepted process.

      "Modern movies may be more engrossing-we get "lost" in them more readily-because the universe’s natural rhythm is driving the mind." James Cutting, Jordan DeLong and Christine Nothelfer from their paper on human attention span and film.

      More on the EOS FCP Plugin

      March 21, 2010, 12:18 pm
      I played around with the new Canon EOS Movie Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro this morning and I noticed a few other odds and ends after some discussion about the tool with folks on Twitter. Canon has a very detailed information page of their own which is helpful as well. If you haven’t downloaded yet then you can grab the plug-in here.

      Comedy Editing - Adding a Laugh Track...

      March 20, 2010, 12:17 pm
      A show is "laffed" after the dialogue mix or after the entire mix. The laughs start after the "laffer" wheels the Laff box in. Whoa... hold the press...That was then. Now Charley Douglass’s original machine from the ’50s, like everything else, comes in a digital format. Still, it contains titters, guffaws, snickers, and chuckles of varying lengths.
