      The Editor’s Guild Pt. 1 – Getting In...

      July 14, 2010, 10:10 am
      An important question I often get is "how do I join the union?" This question comes from many people I meet, from established editors to the young people just starting out in the Hollywood. The catch is that the answer isn’t at all that simple. The question should be: "should I join the union?" Putting it simply, if you’re asking that question, the answer is not quite yet. But that’s just the beginning of the story.

      Canon 5D or 7D directly in FCP

      July 14, 2010, 10:07 am
      For striping TC (time code) on Canon files I use a free utility called QtChange. With QtChange, if the correct settings are not used, it is extremely easy to permanently corrupt a Canon .mov. Result, reshoot. Use with studied caution, please. Also, do not try QtChange on Canon .mov files which are on a Win NT drive.

      HAS AVID CAUGHT UP TO FCP WITH MC5?

      July 14, 2010, 10:04 am
      It was only a few years ago that Avid, trying to win back the hearts and minds of customers who were abandoning them and going to Final Cut and other systems, adopted the motto: "We’re Listening." With the release of Media Composer 5, it’s obvious they did. One of the most anticipated releases in years, Avid’s re-realized Media Composer 5 is among the most robust, feature-laden and dynamic packages from the company in over a decade. It’s taken that long (some say even longer) for Avid to...

      MATROX'S MX02 MINI

      July 14, 2010, 10:03 am
      The introduction of the Matrox MX02 Mini actually makes a little bit of video history: It’s the first third-party hardware option Avid deemed worthy of being allowed into the exclusive club with Media Composer. Matrox is well-known for its quality and value, so the partnership with Avid bodes well for both companies.

      Is Apple Ceding the High-End Video Editing Market

      July 13, 2010, 2:20 pm
      Steve Jobs e-mail reassurances notwithstanding, this is a question that’s getting asked a lot in editing suites these days, especially those with large Final Cut Pro/Final Cut Studio installations. While users of other software; Adobe CS Suites including Premiere and After Effects, Avid’s Media Composer, Sony Vegas and Square Box Systems CatDV just to name a few, get new features and powerful upgrades, Final Cut Pro editors are stuck waiting on the sidelines.

      Editing Multiple Personalities

      July 13, 2010, 1:26 pm
      Once the interviews were synced, all the clips were converted to Apple ProRes 422 24fps. After gathering all of the perspectives from each interview, I came across two lines that helped me really understand and create Sasha's story. Her father talks about Sasha's contradicting personalities— as if there were a constant battle between the two sides of this curiously engaging girl. This conflict goes even deeper when Froomer asks Sasha to introduce herself.

      XDCAM Vs. ProRES

      July 13, 2010, 10:51 am
      Yeah, I know, I know. I already knew this, and I have told many MANY other people that they should edit XDCAM as ProRes...but I thought that I’d just save a LITTLE time with these quick promos I am cutting and keep them as XDCAM, but render them out of Color as ProRes. I did a small test and it worked.
