Some of you may be wondering whether I’m planning an update to "Avid Agility" for Media Composer 5.5. The answer is yes. It’ll be a relatively minor update, with changes confined to the new features (mainly Find, PhraseFind, the Transition Tool and Legacy/Classic Trim Mode).

Steve Jobs e-mail reassurances notwithstanding, this is a question that’s getting asked a lot in editing suites these days, especially those with large Final Cut Pro/Final Cut Studio installations. While users of other software; Adobe CS Suites including Premiere and After Effects, Avid’s Media Composer, Sony Vegas and Square Box Systems CatDV just to name a few, get new features and powerful upgrades, Final Cut Pro editors are stuck waiting on the sidelines.

Once the interviews were synced, all the clips were converted to Apple ProRes 422 24fps. After gathering all of the perspectives from each interview, I came across two lines that helped me really understand and create Sasha's story. Her father talks about Sasha's contradicting personalities— as if there were a constant battle between the two sides of this curiously engaging girl. This conflict goes even deeper when Froomer asks Sasha to introduce herself.

Yeah, I know, I know. I already knew this, and I have told many MANY other people that they should edit XDCAM as ProRes...but I thought that I’d just save a LITTLE time with these quick promos I am cutting and keep them as XDCAM, but render them out of Color as ProRes. I did a small test and it worked.

Michael Clayton has been described as a thriller, but it’s more about "soul sickness," according to writer-director Tony Gilroy, about people who find themselves in exile facing moral dilemmas. As a result, his brother, editor John Gilroy, A.C.E., had to make sure the audience stayed inside the characters, while creating a subtle build-up of tension throughout. The filmmakers also created a specific look, which paid homage to movies from the 1970s, in which composition within a widescreen...

So what advice would you expect from a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright father to his younger son, who will be editing the first feature film of his eldest son? "Just cover his ass," John Gilroy, A.C.E., laughs.

Known for having cut some of cinema’s most iconic actions sequences, largely in effects-heavy films, Oscar-winning editor Conrad Buff, A.C.E., is poised to add another CGI-laden title to his impressive list of credits when Paramount Pictures releases M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender July 2. A 3-D live-action film based on Nickelodeon’s animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender, this is the editor’s second film in collaboration with Shyamalan.

Gathered together in the same cutting room on the 20th Century Fox lot, Don Zimmerman, A.C.E., and his three sons––Danny, Dean and David––have the peculiar ability to meander in and out of one another’s thoughts when they speak. Their memories are collective, multi-faceted, complementary. The effect, made more acute by the fact that Danny and Dean are astonishingly identical twins, is rather like a single, hydra-headed Zimmerman. As they fall into what must be a familiar dialogue, one...

With the sad passing of legendary editor and former Editors Guild Vice President Dede Allen, A.C.E., in mid-April, and the subsequent simultaneous memorial tributes to her in New York and Los Angeles held a month later (see Page 12), my thoughts turn to family. Especially after reading the comments of her son, award-winning re-recording mixer Tom Fleischman, MPSE, CAS, addressing the attendees at the East Coast memorial: "As I look at you, I see my family, extended family, dear friends and...
