Wii Controller for Editing

June 23, 2010, 10:28 AM


So, for those who haven’t been following long at home, this is the third creative controller that I have put together. I promise this isn’t going to become a "Combine X with Y and use it to control Final cut Pro!" blog. This one is clean and simple so I figured I’d put it up and share how it works.

Color Correction Conundrum SOLVED!

Many thanks to all the PVC readers that responded to my anguished plea for color correction help! You can see the before and after results above. Not perfect, but good enough for my purposes.

Best Nonlinear Editing System Report

The 2010 NAB Convention had the Post Production world buzzing about the Three A's of the Industry: Apple, Adobe, and Avid. Well, really more Adobe and Avid since they were actually at the show and had something to demonstrate.

Useful Tools for Editors: FotoMagico

Saying that, as an editor, you might need to create "animated slideshows" sounds a bit amateurish, and home video-ish. I much prefer to say I have to pan and zoom some photos or, at the very least, animate stills. The Ken Burns Effect was nice for a while but ever since Apple added the term to iMovie, referring to it now sounds amateurish.

Embarrassed of Edits

I once cut a piece for someone and was completely disgusted with how it turned out. I was booked on to another show and left the first job (ran out of budget) for another. The director proceeded to finish the rest of the show by themselves...

If you’re in and around Boston this Friday then you may want to make some time for the First Ever, First Annual Boston SuperMeet. As is the case with all SuperMeets there’s a great lineup for the even and lots of prizes for the world famous raffle. A few of standouts IMHO: Mitch Jacobson will be discussing mulitcamera madness and discussing his new multicam book (which I had the pleasure of contributing to if only a bit)...

Better editing with custom screen layouts

June 18, 2010, 12:49 PM


One of the handy features of modern NLEs is the ability to rearrange the interface around specific editing tasks. Changing the user interface windows for editing, mixing, color correction or effects will make easier work of any session. Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer and Apple Final Cut Pro are all designed with a similar bin, window and timeline layout that offers infinite possibilities to customize the UI, including keyboard and button commands.
