Vancouver film editor Julian Clarke has spent much of the last year hunkered down in an editing room in Toronto, working on a new Rachel Weisz film called The Whistleblower. The catch is, it was filmed in Romania. After each day of filming, film cans were sent by Fed-Ex across the Atlantic, where Clarke loaded them into the computer and went to work. "It created a several day delay, which is not ideal," he said...

I am currently in the "rough cut" phase of my latest show. And this, to me, is the most difficult part. This is where I need to make something out of nothing. Well, not NOTHING, as there is a lot of stuff there that you use. But this is the part of the phase that I need to look at ALL of my somethings, and cull it down and string it out and arrange it in a way to tell a good story.

Bill Warnewr is the man who had the vision, he's the man who made this happen. In this, the first of a five part series, Bill explains the frustration he felt at the linear editing process in a tape-based world and how he, turned this frustration to find a solution to the problem. As a result the world of editing has never been the same. Where once tape-based suites and film cutting rooms dominated, now the electronic non-linear way has become the accepted process.

I played around with the new Canon EOS Movie Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro this morning and I noticed a few other odds and ends after some discussion about the tool with folks on Twitter. Canon has a very detailed information page of their own which is helpful as well. If you haven’t downloaded yet then you can grab the plug-in here.

A show is "laffed" after the dialogue mix or after the entire mix. The laughs start after the "laffer" wheels the Laff box in. Whoa... hold the press...That was then. Now Charley Douglass’s original machine from the ’50s, like everything else, comes in a digital format. Still, it contains titters, guffaws, snickers, and chuckles of varying lengths.

We all know this fact: The Canon DSLRs (5D, 7D, 1D) use the H.264 codec for the video they shoot and wrap that into a .mov QuickTime. While Final Cut Pro does work with .movs, these H.264 versions are clunky to edit requiring much rendering when in a FCP timeline. H.264 wasn’t designed to be a robust edit format anyway so the files need to be transcoded into something more edit friendly.
