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 a tricky question but I will try to answer it as best as I can. Find Bin is supposed to allow you to find the original bin of the clip or sequence loaded in the source monitor. However, if that clip originally existed in another project before being used in the current project...

I am back for some more testing and if you have been keeping track, PluralEyes is down by 1.

(It says 04;00;00;00 when it...

So I am back for round 2 of PluralEyes to see if it is any match for the sequence I have lined up for it. Now, I could sit here and twiddle my thumbs or launch into my thoughts about PluralEyes. (I'm all for multitasking, so you know what I am going to do.)

Right off the bat, I'm not endorsing or bashing anyone. Just the facts! (Hopefully that covers me in the event anyone gets offended.) There are two programs out there that might make multigrouping a bit easier. They are PluralEyes (http://www.singularsoftware.com/pluraleyes.html) and Quickeys (http://www.startly.com). PluralEyes aids with syncing and Quickeys helps with creating subclips...

There is a question floating out there about entry-level assistant editors. It's a good question and I am surprised that I haven't thought to address it before. What do I need to know to be an assistant editor? Of all the questions to ask, that is probably the hardest to answer. Ask any post-production coordinator...

Show Reference Clips is a function that allows you to view all of the clips associated with the sequence in that bin. It is a helpful function because it doesn't require you to have all of the bins open that contain the footage for the sequence. Show Reference Clips can be found by clicking on [...]
