Seems like we’re often being handed MP3 files to use in our video projects. It might be a sound effect or an audio track we’ve got the rights to use. The problem is that the MP3 format is not very good for video editing (wrong sample rate... rarely works in real-time). Fortunately there’s an easy fix... iTunes.

It might surprise some to learn that the most important part of post-production for an independent film is the pre-production phase. Before shooting a single frame or pixel, the first decision any independent moviemaker should make is to scout an indie-friendly, post-production facility. Achieving success cannot occur without tediously planning for the end of the production. It becomes increasingly pertinent when working with tighter time constraints and the budget of an independent film...

Avid’s new version of its Media Composer software, Media Composer 5, has some of the most substantial changes to the product in years. From the ability to access many different media types, including QuickTime and RED files natively (without having to transcode), to support for RTAS audio plug-ins, this new release is poised to be a big success by giving editors more power and flexibility than ever.

With the introduction of AMA support for RED media in Media Composer 5 it has become a easier to edit RED footage in MC, but it’s still not a finishing solution for many jobs. Avid’s DS product, on the other hand, is a great RED finishing tool.
