In this installment of Video Adrenaline for Premiere Pro, Richard Harrington focuses on changes in Adobe CS55 and how it integrates with Audition. It's easy to move back and forth from a PP sequence to edit in Adobe Audition.

The new music video for MGMT's "Congratulations" is striking and unusual. Framed in widescreen as it chronicles the slow decay of a strange (pet?) animal against a desert landscape, the carefully assembled story ends on a note that may be depressing, baffling or uplifting, depending on your point of view. Most importantly, it strikes a chord with fans, who have made the video an online hit. Film & Video caught up with Cut + Run founder Steve Gandolfi, who edited the clip, for a quick...

Earlier this year there was a big flap about the MPEG LA’s AVC License terms for H.264 video, and how it affects content creators on the web. We did our own post on the complicated topic here. Well it seems that the MPEG LA was listening, and in a recent announcement they’ve extended the free web-distribution terms of the AVC/H.264 License from a 2015 expiration date to "through life of license."

Earlier this year, Adobe released a new update to After Effects with a great round of new features and additions. Probably the most notable change is that this new version of the software operates as a native 64-bit application. When I purchased my 8-core Apple Mac Pro, I added 20GB of memory, but honestly the option to use all of that memory has been limited until the new 64-bit architecture of Snow Leopard. In addition, there have been few creative programs that have taken advantage of the...

A few months ago I rather rapidly acquired a new job – my first on a feature, a stereoscopic stop-motion animation. But I’m not working in the editing department. They’ve been in place now for some time. I’m working in Previs and VFX. On an Avid.

As an editor, I’ve probably used a dozen different editing systems for billable gigs. If you add the other systems I’ve reviewed, but didn’t use on client projects, coupled with those I’ve had working exposure to, that’s easily twice as many. This experience gives one a keen awareness of the pros and cons of different product designs. When you spend eight, ten, twelve hours or more staring at a screen, the user interface becomes a key factor in whether the system helps or hinders your work.

When you drag clips around in the Media Composer timeline, the Composer window adjusts to show you what you’re doing. Instead of displaying the usual side-by-side images, it shows four frames: the A and B sides of the two cuts you’re adjusting as you drag. In some cases, this is super-slick and allows you to make quick and precise changes.
