It is with a heavy heart that we announce we will no longer be updating Aotg.com. Back in 2007, when we started, there was a lack of access to information about film, television, and commercial editing. We wanted to fix that by creating a central location for content about editing to be stored.
Since then, we've watched the amount of content about editing on the internet grow exponentially. We've also watched social media tools come and go with that growth. Does anyone remember Google Wave!? These social media tools changed how people access and search for media and information. People tend to turn to Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram for their news and information, and those are all great tools to promote your sites, but as a site that aggregates links to other sites for users, it just doesn't work for us.
We will keep the site live but archive the ability to add links and comments. We will keep our database live with the links for those who desire to use it to search for editing information and research.
Our podcast, The Cutting Room, will move over to the Filmmakeru.com website and will continue to be a place for interviews with editors and other film professionals.
Everyone who worked for Aotg.com loved what we created and are proud that we could help so many editors find content that spoke to them.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the various post events worldwide in the coming years!

The 2022.4 release of Pro Tools was dominated by the changes to the product lineup, the way licensing works for new customers and the introduction of two new virtual instruments. However in spite of this there were new features in the Pro Tools software itself. Many of these were a redistribution of features between the top tier Ultimate/Flex product and the middle tier Pro Tools Studio, surround sound and advanced automation being particularly significant additions to the middle tier.

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a wild scene—busy with lines of people collecting, producing, sending content from their mobile devices. They’re enjoying screenings, music, food, tech events, posting to IG, texting friends. It’s a world of communication on steroids with signals, signals, and more signals vying for airtime. Victor Borachuk calls it an “RF free-for-all”. … JupiterReturn Streams at SXSW with Teradek Ranger Read More »

The evolution of typography in the edit suite. As a kid my mom worked at a small town newspaper. Although offset (photographic) printing was becoming the norm, they still used old Linotype presses.

Today’s video solves two shortcomings when it comes to creating pans and zooms on stills and video clips in Final Cut Pro. The first is the “Ken Burns” effect made popular, but by no means invented, by the famed documentary filmmaker: while it works very well to create these kinds of moves and has an [...]Read More... from Next Level Ken Burns Effects in Final Cut Pro
