Today I have the great pleasure of posting Part I of a conversation I had with an amazing, not to mention amazingly accomplished person, Bill Warner.

Anyone who has ever read the seven articles I’ve published so far about critical video evaluation —be it with the HP DreamColor monitor, or any other brand and model— knows why this process has traditionally required a professional interface to do this properly. Even Apple has warned about this, both verbally at NAB 2005 when announcing the Digital Cinema Desktop, as well as in writing, in Apple’s support article TA27705.

A buddy of mine, Bryce Randle of Post Fifth Pictures, popped in on iChat to ask me the question: "Do you remember how to change the size of frames in the bin?" Boy do I.
