      The Man Who Created AVID – Part I

      July 1, 2010, 9:39 pm
      Today I have the great pleasure of posting Part I of a conversation I had with an amazing, not to mention amazingly accomplished person, Bill Warner. A graduate of MIT, Bill founded Avid Technology in 1987. With a small team of hardware and software engineers Mr. Warner created the tool that radically altered the way films, television and all dynamic media are created, the Avid Media Composer...

      CS5 & critical evaluation monitoring?

      July 1, 2010, 9:38 pm
      Anyone who has ever read the seven articles I’ve published so far about critical video evaluation —be it with the HP DreamColor monitor, or any other brand and model— knows why this process has traditionally required a professional interface to do this properly. Even Apple has warned about this, both verbally at NAB 2005 when announcing the Digital Cinema Desktop, as well as in writing, in Apple’s support article TA27705.

      Quick Tip Bin Frame Size

      July 1, 2010, 8:07 am
      A buddy of mine, Bryce Randle of Post Fifth Pictures, popped in on iChat to ask me the question: "Do you remember how to change the size of frames in the bin?" Boy do I. That was one of the day to day tasks I did as an assistant editor on EVEN STEVENS. One editor liked to have all of the shots laid out by camera angle and take.

      Changing Frame Size

      July 1, 2010, 8:06 am
      In the midst of my daily afternoon brain fart, I could not remember how to change the size of a frame in my bin. I shot a quick iChat IM over to Shane Ross at LFHD.net to get an answer. So he quickly through a small tip of a post together. Thanks Shane!

      A few days ago Post-Production blogger Philip Hodgetts caused soemthing of a stir among the editors of twitter by suggesting that Apple should do away with support for tape capture in the next version of Final Cut Pro. Other’s have weighed in, so I thought I might as well add my voice...

      Remove Vocals from Music in your edit

      June 29, 2010, 6:03 pm
      I run into a lot of situations where I put music under an edit and I have vo on top. This combination ends up failing on almost every piece of music that has vocals because it sounds like a trainwreck. Often I will have creatives ask me if I can "turn down the vocals" as if I somehow can pull the multitrack mix out of the low bitrate mp3 that they just emailed me.
