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.

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.

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.

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."
