Avid Screencast Red Workflow V

March 4, 2010, 11:43 AM


This is the fifth of several episodes covering a workflow for using Red Digital Cinema Cameras with your Avid editing application. In this episode, we’ll transcode Red’s R3Ds to Avid-native DNxHD MXF files using Redcine-X, a free transcoding, grading and editing utility by Red that is available for Mac and Windows.

Importance of Knowing FCP and Avid

March 4, 2010, 11:42 AM


If you follow my Twitter feed, you will note that I landed a new job. This new job will be a History Channel two hour special, and I will be using an Avid Adrenaline (v2.7.7) to edit. Now, while I am a HUGE FCP advocate and known world wide as an FCP editor and expert...

Editing Multicam Shot in 5D Canon

March 3, 2010, 11:39 AM


It’s no secret that Canon 5Ds are everywhere. They’ve shot music videos, short films, commercials and more Vimeo videos than anyone can imagine. One place where I haven’t heard about a lot of usage (as of yet anyway) is in multicamera concert production.

First, Canon announced a BETA availability date for their EOS Log and Transfer plugin for Final Cut Pro. Well, not a specific date, but sometime in March.

The Canon 5D MKII 24p update was just announced, and people are flipping out. Now, many people have been using the 5D for video at 30fps (and conforming it to 29.97), and others have been using Twixtor (check the comments) and other tools to conform it to 24p.

Changes to a Cut AFTER Online!

March 3, 2010, 11:36 AM


So, that project that I took from FCP and converted to Avid, you know, this, this and this one? Well, after sending off three of five masters, we got notes back. Not QC (quality check) notes like one would expect, but some more online notes like "blur this more, blur that...and blur that," and "the graphics are the old ones, please replace with the new ones, link below, and the font needs to change as well."

N.I.N.A. Work in Progress pt. 3

Here is the performance and story edit of NINA. There is no color correction and still some temp camera audio, and obviously, no sound design or mixing. That phase is next.

Final Cutters Site

March 2, 2010, 11:31 AM


If you were looking for a single web destination that is a clearing house for all things Final Cut Pro then FinalCutters has to be that destination. It’s attempting to do what seems like the near impossible and pull together news, blog posts, photos, Twitter tweets, user reviews and ratings and build a community right there at the site.
