    So, it’s been a while since I’ve started writing this series, so I should probably point out that the point here is to simply locate those cool tips and techniques that are easily found in the user manual – if you actually chose to read it. But this is much easier – at least for you – because I’ve sifted out most of the "duh" stuff and just delivered the tips that you might have not heard before.

      ART OF THE GUILLOTINE AND TTB TO HOST TIFF PARTY

      August 23, 2010, 5:27 pm
      It is that time of year again, the Toronto International Film Festival is upon us. This also means its time for our annual TIFF Pub Night. The event is co-hosted with Gordon Burkell from Art of the Guillotine one of the largest post – production websites. Last year was a huge success as we had attendees from both the film and broadcast side, which included Producers and Editors from CTV, MTV, Teletoon, Corus, Astral, Bell, as well as renowned film editor Michael Doherty. This year the event...

      Beta Blues

      Once upon a time, software companies (and some hardware companies, for that matter) had development programs. These development programs were divided into phases – early development, more advanced development, product testing, and finally product release. These phases were often referred to as alpha, beta, release candidate, and release.

      The Future's 3D

      I’ve been reminded by the recent postings of those lucky enough to go to NAB this year (although really I can’t complain too much, given that the volcanic activity of Iceland would mean that I’d currently be stranded in Vegas if I’d attended) that I never made my update on the Broadcast Video Expo 2010.

      Experimenting with Streaming on a CDN

      August 23, 2010, 11:56 am
      Recently I was asked to post a copy of the film I just finished cutting online for a producer in Europe to view. Right off the bat, a couple things were obvious. I would need to encode a Flash Video file (FLV) or an H.264 MP4, and I would need to find someplace secure to host it online. On this and previous projects, I’ve often uploaded Quicktimes directly to my website and sent a link and login credentials to whoever needs them.

      AdobeCS5 and nVidia: First Impressions Part 3

      Well, I’ve been editing with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and the nVidia Quadro CUDA video card for about six months now, and it has been an interesting ride. You can check out my starting impressions in blog posts here, here and here. But what’s the latest?

      A Day in the Life of an Assistant

      August 22, 2010, 9:07 am
      After reality editor Adam Coleite’s several references to assistant editors in the last two posts, I decided it was high time to talk to one of these unsung post workers, even more unsung than editors! I met assistant TV editor Rachel Dong, fresh from R & R in Hawaii after completing a pilot, in Culver City.

      Avid Online Tip - Modify

      August 21, 2010, 9:54 am
      I got an email the other day from a company that I have been hoping to work with for some time. This email was a job offer. A quickie. A day, maybe two. He needed someone to online a short film, but the budget was tight so all they could afford was one day. It was shot on film, telecined to HDCAM SR 444, and offlined on an Avid. Could I come in an online on their Symphony? Basically recapture, and do minor corrections to make sure shots match.
