    Reducing Noise in Apple Final Cut Pro

    November 16, 2010, 10:03 am
    A funny thing happened on the way to this episode of Final Cut Pro Insider. As you may recall, the last episode detailed the results of an extensive visit to iTunes, where I downloaded and analyzed about 50 files, and presented strategies for producing podcasts for the increasingly diverse range of iDevices. This episode was going to cover device presets in Apple Compressor, Sorenson Media Squeeze, and Telestream Episode. I hope this doesn't cause any riots in the heartland, but I'm going to...

      Writing a SCript with Editing in Mind

      December 28, 2009, 6:04 am
      The Story Department, a Sydney, Australia based website founded by OZZYWOOD Films producer and Story Analyst Karel Segers, requested my article on screenwriting for editing. They improved my article with a few astute edits and illustrations. Here’s the lead paragraph...

      Mixing Formats in the Edit

      December 27, 2009, 6:03 am
      The sheer mix and volume of formats to deal with today can be mind-boggling. Videotape player/recorders – formerly a common denominator – are a vanishing breed. Post facilities still own and use VTRs, but operations at the local market level, especially in broadcast, are becoming increasingly tapeless.

      Avid Basics for FCP Users

      December 26, 2009, 6:01 am
      Continuing on an article in the last Pro Video Coalition newsletter, The Basics of Avid Media Composer for a Final Cut Pro Editor, this article will look at a number of other functions and how they differ from Final Cut Pro to Media Composer. One of the main reasons why I’m writing these articles is that Avid offers a free, full-featured demo of Avid Media Composer 4 available for download. When I wrote the first piece that demo was only for 14 days.

      Back up Tapeless Media

      December 26, 2009, 5:59 am
      Many film-makers have begun to shoot on tapeless media. XDCam Ex, P2, video on DSLRs, Red, AVCHD, hard disk camcorders, and such like. So, naturally, where they would store tapes in a cupboard, they now have all their 'rushes' as digital video files sitting on hard disks.

      Interview with Mick Audsley Pt. 2

      December 25, 2009, 5:57 am
      In part one of Garrett Gilchrist’s interview, veteran British film editor Mick Audsley talked about his work on Terry Gilliam’s upcoming The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. His second collaboration with Gilliam will always be remembered as Heath Ledger’s last film but, according to Aubrey, salvaging both Ledger’s performance and, in the process, the film itself, will serve as a lasting memorial to the actor, who died during production at the age of 28.

      Yeah, Tapes are Infallible, Right...

      December 24, 2009, 5:54 am
      One argument I hear against tapeless formats OVER AND OVER again is, to paraphrase, "tapes are infallible. You can’t accidentally delete a clip from a tape. Having a PHYSICAL tape in your hand makes you sure you have the footage and it is there, and usable, and I can see it YEARS from now."

      Obscure Faces

      December 24, 2009, 5:53 am
      Sometimes, you need to obscure the face of a person, be it for legal or aesthetic reasons. In this episode, we’ll do just that using a very special technique.
