It's true.They have a personal vendetta against assistant editors. Not the camera operators mind you. The cameras themselves. I know this is going to start a long-winded dialogue that inanimate objects can't have vendettas.They aren't alive!Well, be an AE for a day and your perspective might change. I've seen tapes/discs come back from the field [...]

This is the cry of many assistant editors. You understand that you are an important part of the tv creation process but you want to be on the creative side rather than the "get things done behind-the-scenes" side. All assistant editors - at some time or another - have this itch and while scratching it...

Lucky for us, very easy. With the desired camera angle selected in the multigroup, press Match Frame. You will see the multigroup icon above the Source Monitor change to a group icon. Press Match Frame until the icon changes from a group icon to a subclip icon and eventually to the master clip!

This could easily turn into a long discussion of which way is better and that would get us nowhere. Whatever makes you faster is the schematic that you should go with. I have found that people who map more functions and shortcuts to their keyboards are faster at what they do and those seconds add up to...

Dupe Detection is a handy function that lets you know when you have used the same clip more than once in your sequence. To enable this function, you need to select Dupe Detection from the Timeline Fast menu. If the same clip is in the sequence more than once, colored lines will appear above both...

There are 2 main reasons for this: The clips out of sync with each other. (And as a result the multigroup is out of sync.) The wrong auxiliary timecode has been assigned to your subclips. While syncing the clips it is imperative that all of the clips are correctly synced to one another before creating [...]

There are actually only 2 different types of timecode but one has two names. Free-run timecode or time-of day timecode is timecode that starts at a preset programmed time (08;00;00;00 for example) and runs continuously - even when the camera isn't filming. Therefore, if a camera starts filming at 08;00;00;00 and takes a 10 minute [...]
