With the many complexities that are involved in video encoding, this step can make or break the end product if the "right" solution is not selected.

When director James Cameron realized that editor James Cameron, A.C.E., was going to need a larger team to help navigate the brave new world he was creating for Avatar, he turned to two editors who, in their own right, have themselves often been at the leading edge of technologically challenging projects: John Refoua, A.C.E., and Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E.

One thing James Cameron, A.C.E., will never be accused of is not having big enough dreams. It’s a good thing he writes them down. The Terminator, created in the late 1970s out of a fevered dream in a Rome hotel room, was the invention of a young, unknown director, who had to wait nearly six years for his vision to gain a studio. Then in the mid-1990s, Cameron, in almost Edgar Rice Burroughs-like fashion, imagined a fully realized alien world called Pandora (actually a moon, to be precise)...

Learning and creating as needs arose, picture editors James Cameron, A.C.E.; John Refoua, A.C.E.; and Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E.; as well as assistant editor Jason Gaudio and producer Jon Landau, have created a unique process that was centered completely on director...

When first assistant editor Jason Gaudio joined Avatar’s editorial staff in October 2006, he was no stranger to visual effects-laden films, having been an assistant visual effects editor on Cameron’s Titanic (1997) and Michael Bay’s Armageddon (1998). As a first assistant, his credits later included Brad Silberling’s Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004) and Gil Kenan’s Monster House (2006), which provided Gaudio with an early education in the evolving world of performance...

Carol Littleton, A.C.E., has never been one to sit back and wait for something to happen. Instead, she makes things happen. For example, as a novice film editor in the late 1970s, she did not wait around patiently, hoping for jobs to come her way. Rather, Littleton took charge of her career by forming her own commercial editing company. Experiencing first-hand the difficulty of breaking into what was virtually a closed shop, she did not spend her time complaining about the status quo, but...
