    FCP Helpers

    October 19, 2010, 2:11 pm
    Apple Final Cut Pro is generally said to be an 80/20 application, trading off some niche features for a lower price. More often than not, this descriptor is meant in the negative. Avid editors using FCP frequently lament about media management, render files and so on when comparing FCP with Media Composer. Yet, the fact that Apple targets the sweet middle, has left the field open for high-end systems on the Mac, like Avid Symphony, Autodesk Smoke and now, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve.

      Hank Corwin, editing like free form Jazz

      February 16, 2019, 8:56 am
      After cutting the subversive complexities of “The Big Short” with Adam McKay, editor Hank Corwin quickly realized that it was just a warm up for “Vice,” the Shakespearean dramedy about the unprecedented rise to power of political operative-turned VP Dick Cheney (Oscar nominee Christian Bale).

      How BlacKkKlansman Editor Crafted the Initiation S

      February 14, 2019, 6:22 pm
      BlacKkKlansman editor Barry Alexander Brown — who has also worked as a director and writer on both documentaries and features through his 30-year career — met Spike Lee in New York during the mid-'80s, and since then he has cut many of Lee's feature films, including Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X and Inside Man. BlacKkKlansman marks Brown's first Academy Award nomination as an editor, though he was also Oscar-nominated for his 1979 documentary The War at Home.

      Oscar-Nominated VFX Artists Wowed Audiences

      February 14, 2019, 6:22 pm
      Today’s visual effects are so high-tech that it seems quaint that Oscar nominees are chosen through a process called the Bake-Off. This live event, staged at the Academy’s Beverly Hills theater, is as far from a cooking contest as you can get. The craftspeople behind 10 shortlisted films take the stage to demonstrate, until a timer with a light flashes, how they achieved their effects.

      Resolve Tutorial - Working with Windows

      February 14, 2019, 6:22 pm
      In our last lesson, in our look at learning DaVinci Resolve, we talked about working with Curves, and how you can use them to independently adjust the highlights, midtones and shadows of your YRBG levels. In this lesson, I want to move on and talk about Windows, or masks, as they are more commonly referred to.
