    Organizational Tips for FCP X

    March 8, 2013, 5:44 am
    The beauty of Apple Final Cut Pro X is in its power to organize media. When editors take advantage of these tools, FCP X can prove to be a very fast way to cut. I've covered some of these concepts in previous posts on

      Final Cut Pro X versus Premiere Pro CS6

      March 16, 2013, 4:30 pm
      The struggle within most shops that invested in Apple's Final Cut Pro is whether to stay put a while longer, adopt Final Cut Pro X or cut the cord and move on. For many this means shifting to the Adobe Production Premium bundle - part of Creative Suite. Most of the editors and facilities in [...]

      PluralEyes 3

      February 15, 2013, 7:56 am
      The concept of synchronizing clips by sound seems so obvious in retrospect, but when Bruce Sharpe showed his first version of PluralEyes at a small NAB booth, it struck many as nothing short of magic. The first version was designed to sync multiple consumer and prosumer video cameras by aligning their sound tracks in the [...]

      Thunderbolt is the latest protocol for peripherals used by Apple on its computers to carry audio, video, data and power over a single cable. The protocol combines Apple's DisplayPort technology and PCIe into a single connectivity path. The technology can be used to daisy-chain numerous devices, including storage, monitors and broadcast I/O hardware. Thunderbolt ports [...]

      Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Shuttle

      January 26, 2013, 3:29 pm
      The video industry has been moving towards complete file-based workflows, but that doesn't replace all of the functions that traditional videotape recorders served. To bridge the gap, companies such as AJA, Blackmagic Design, Convergent Design, Sound Devices and others had developed solid state recorders for field and studio operation. I recently tested Blackmagic Design's HyperDeck...

      Zero Dark Thirty

      January 18, 2013, 9:52 pm
      Few films have the potential to be as politically charged as Zero Dark Thirty. Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, K-19: The Widowmaker) and producer/writer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, In the Valley of Elah) have evaded those minefields by focusing on the relentless CIA detective work that led to the finding and killing of...

      Offline to online with 4K

      January 12, 2013, 11:34 am
      The 4K buzz  seems to be steam-rolling the industry just like stereo3D before it. It's too early to tell whether it will be an immediate issue for editors or not, since 4K delivery requirements are few and far between. Nevertheless, camera and TV-set manufacturers  are building important parts of the pipeline. RED Digital Cinema is...

      Editing in 2013

      January 5, 2013, 4:14 pm
      Undoubtedly this year will continue the trend of fractured market share for edit systems. If you tally up every system in general use, your professional choices include NLE systems from Adobe, Apple, Avid, Autodesk, Boris/Media 100, Dayang, Editshare/Lightworks , Grass Valley, SGO, Sony and Quantel. In most US markets, the split in market dominance boils...

      Edit suite floor plans

      My past articles on edit suite and facility design have focused on equipment and construction tips. For my last post of 2012, I'll take a look at some layouts that might play into designing your next editing man (or woman) cave. In the linear days, suites used to follow the "bridge of the Enterprise" philosophy...
