      SONGS IN MOVIES Songs have been a big part of the movie-making process ever since the beginning of “talkies,” with Al Jolson singing “My Mammy” in The Jazz Singer (1927)—a prime example of an on-camera featured song in a movie. Songs have always been an important part of entertainment, and their attraction, interest, and “pull”...

      Preparing a Location for Recording and Ambience

      November 20, 2014, 7:59 am
      Preparing a Location for Recording You’ve probably heard the comment “We’ll fi x it in post.” If you’re on a fi lm shoot with a heavy audio postproduction budget, then almost anything is possible. But in video, what you record on location is pretty much what’s going to end up in the final product. Preparing...

      Final Cut Pro X Tutorial: Syncing Audio

      November 4, 2014, 5:51 am
      Most DSLR shooters are already aware of PluralEyes and DualEyes. But the new version of Final Cut X will also sync external audio recorders with DSLR audio files. This lesson shows you how. Preparing files Without any pre-rendering, I imported the files. (I’ve heard that you can edit H.264 files from DSLR live, and I’m...

      “The cloud” refers to a method of data storage which is by nature decentralized, offering both data redundancy and ready access almost anywhere on the planet. The concept is a little misleading since “the cloud” is not really up in the sky as the name suggests; rather, it involves remote computing from distant locations and...

      Final Cut Pro Version 10.1 is designed to take advantage of the newest technologies included in Mavericks OS 10.9, particularly it takes advantage of what Apple calls Timer Coalescing and Compressed Memory, which speeds up low-level system events. Timer Coalescing allows these system events to be grouped, to happen in bursts when there is available...

      Rose’s Rules: • You can fake almost any other aspect of the track, and undo or change it if you’re not happy with the result. But bad dialog recordings are forever. • You can write, direct, shoot, edit, create graphics, and mix the whole project all by yourself, all in your own sweet time, and...

      Avid Smart Tool Functions

      September 25, 2014, 4:37 am
      Avid editors have certainly used the Timeline for decades, but Avid has always been much more conducive to keyboard editing. Final Cut Pro editors—and I realize that I’m generalizing—are often much more comfortable moving and trimming their sequences using the arrow tool and the Timeline trimming functions to drag segments and transitions quickly and efficiently...

      Merged Media Merged media converging in the new and improved art department is blurring titles, rewriting job descriptions, and re-establishing it as the crucible of all cinematic imagery. What was once done in optical houses after the fact is now performed as a matter of course by using pre-vis techniques at our work stations. Pre-vis...
