The other day I was working on a 3D show. A tad bit difficult considering I am in that small percentage of people who can't watch 3D without wanting to puke my guts out. Fortunately for me, I left the edit session with my stomach contents intact and the show finished. Working in 3D is [...]

Way, way, way, waywayway, way back in the day when I first started using Avid I didn't know what I was doing. (Obviously) I was lucky if I remembered to turn on both monitors because I just wasn't used to this editing monstrosity. Since then, thank goodness, my skills have improved. I always turn on [...]

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 [...]
