    Editing Tip: Mixing it up with Split Edits

    February 6, 2011, 9:56 am

    In video, the term takes on a new meaning when you sit down to craft a video program. Here we enter the realm of the split edit, a technique that, once mastered, can add new levels of interest and audience engagement to your video editing efforts.

      In this premium video tutorial, Julian Rodgers demonstrates how automation can take the strain off your vocal compression and how using volume automation affects compression differently than clip gain. Luckily you can change your mind about which you use without losing your automation. Thanks to Jess Orestano for the use of her track Eliza.

      Jar Jar Binks was nearly a practical suit and a CG

      May 24, 2019, 5:54 am
      Whatever you think of Jar Jar Binks – the fully computer-generated Gungan played by Ahmed Best and crafted by ILM for The Phantom Menace – he was a game-changer in visual effects. It was, essentially, the first main CG character in a feature film, one brought to life by Best performing on set with the other actors and via motion capture.

      Did they use salt to make waterfalls in The Phanto

      May 23, 2019, 8:19 am
      You might have heard or read over the years about the very fun Phantom Menace factoid that salt was used to make the waterfalls seen spilling out underneath the city of Theed. And…it’s of course true; salt was filmed by ILM for waterfall elements and then composited along with Theed building and landscape miniatures and CG and matte painted elements to form the final shots.
