    You are your NLE

    The release of Final Cut Pro X has brought to light a certain distinction amongst picture editors. When Apple removed key features and changed the user interface, they received a wicked backlash. The biggest complaints weren't with the UI but lack of OMF, XML, and EDL support. Without these it's impossible to use FCPX in...

      A premiere (and catharsis) for Bedrooms

      December 5, 2013, 7:55 pm
      One of the films I edited, Bedrooms, had its festival premiere at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival on August 20, 2010. The producers and crew went into overdrive to fill the 450+ seats at Grauman's Chinese Theater. The results paid off with a sold-out theater and Honorable Mention for Best Directing. The film was [...] No related posts.

      Import RED media into Avid Media Composer using AL

      December 5, 2013, 10:50 am
      There are a few ways of importing RED media into the Avid depending on your workflow and if the DIT is providing transcoded media. RED source files contain a lot of metadata which is useful during certain phases of post production. Because AAF and MXF media don’t retain this information once transcoded, an Avid Log […]

      NLE software - different is not better

      December 5, 2013, 5:45 am
      I recently spent time using Adobe Premiere CS6 to edit a promotional piece. It joins the ranks of Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro 7 in my toolkit. Rather than bore you with all of the things it gave me trouble with (AAF, OMF, XML, EDL, and overall performance) I've drawn some conclusions about [...]<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> Related posts:<ol> <li><a href='http://www.ericbrodeur.com/blog/2011/09/21/you-are-your-nle/' rel='bookmark' title='You are your NLE'>You are your NLE</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.ericbrodeur.com/blog/2011/11/29/conforming-two-sets-of-production-sound/' rel='bookmark' title='Conforming two sets of production sound'>Conforming two sets of production sound</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.ericbrodeur.com/blog/2006/05/04/fixing-css-delays-with-internet-explorer-and-drupal/' rel='bookmark' title='Fixing CSS delays with Internet Explorer and Drupal'>Fixing CSS delays with Internet Explorer and Drupal</a></li> </ol> </div>

      First thing I did when I installed Premiere Pro CC is check my keyboard settings. I hoped Adobe had taken an extra step to automatically import (or enable an import feature) my keyboard settings from CS6. Nope. The lazy programming continues.

      The script supervisor working on your show will deliver pages every day which include the lined script, notes for each page, and other summary information. This is important documentation which the editor will use throughout post-production. There is a method to properly assemble these pages for the editor…you don't just stuff them into a binder...
