When do we make an edit? Where do we make an edit? Increasingly in this post-MTV age of cinema, the question arises: How often do we edit? When I’m lecturing at the Directors Guild, teaching editing workshops for the intensive program at Video Symphony, or teaching Avid-certified courses at Moviola Digital, I find the answer is increasingly: "Edit often." Students can show observable anxiety if footage lasts more than a second before another cut is made.

Media Composer 4 introduces Transition Preservation, Avid’s term for a group of enhancements that improve the handling of dissolves during editing. It’s one of those features that’s so intuitive that it immediately feels like you’ve been using it for years — and then you wonder how you did without it for so long. It’s all about timeline dynamics, and that makes it difficult to explain in words. So I’ve posted a video that explains it.

Man...what is UP with Avid lately? Three major releases of the software in just one year? And all with major feature enhancements. OH...and all with a very low upgrade cost...$350. It wasn’t 5 years ago that upgrades were 1-2 years apart, and cost thousands of dollars.

I need a hobby. Well, an inexpensive one. I really want to get into cycling and get a road bike, or get one of those single gear really LIGHT ones but then I have to shell out cash for a bicycle and all the extras. But then I’d be shape at least.

My good friends at Automatic Duck have been churning out timeline translation tools for editors for many, many years now - in fact, any one who edits on multiple editing platforms knows very well what the Duck brings to the table. If you need to move your content back and forth between Avid, Final Cut Pro, After Effects, you know the nightmare that can be. And you also know by know the sanity-restoring qualities of Automatic Duck.
