OK, first I need to point out this old post from 2009. To summarize the part I want you to pay heed to, the HVR-1500 deck that I had SO MUCH trouble capturing with in FCP? Well, it is rock solid in Avid. Not one issue...not one slipped frame, not one dropped frame, not one reconnect issue. The Avid treats this like any old deck....or, NEW deck.

Most of us these days probably carry a USB stick with us pretty regularly, handy for getting files off client’s laptops and so forth, but it can also be your swiss army knife!

Modern digital acquisition, post and distribution wouldn’t be possible without data rate reduction, AKA compression. People like to disparage compression, but I dare say that few folks...

With Apple’s announcement of the iPad there’s been tons of articles, tweets and blog posts about this upcoming piece of hardware. There’s also been tons of ink spilled about just how this little device could be useful in the filmmaking process as well, some right here on this site.

ACE Members TEch Web Discussion on FCP workflow: A couple of colleagues recently discussed with me problems using Final Cut Pro. One is a feature editor. The other does documentaries. I’ve most recently used FCP on an episodic series. Three different types of productions, but I think there are some common solutions. Solutions we’re planning on using on the second season of Warehouse 13 for the SyFy channel...

Got Greener Grass?

In the world of editing, I know of many who wish they could make a living in post-production, even doing the smallest projects. Many editors in and outside Hollywood do, moonlighting on random corporate promos and commercials. They often wish they could get something more regular, like cutting a tv series be it only on the smallest cable channel...

Negative Spaces Blog downloaded this on a whim and I think it's actually pretty useful for reference. It's basically a dictionary of modern video terminology along with some simple explanations of various codecs, formats, and hardware. For $1.99 why not?

Talking on Casino Jack

One movie that had Park City audiences buzzing at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Casino Jack and the United States of Money (opening on May 7, 2010). This daring documentary takes a piercing look at the lies, greed and corruption surrounding infamous Washington, DC lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his cronies. Casino Jack marks the third feature film collaboration between director Alex Gibney (Oscar-winner for Taxi to the Dark Side) and editor-producer Alison Ellwood and co-editor Lindy...

This is the fourth of several episodes covering a workflow for using Red Digital Cinema Cameras with your Avid editing application. In this episode, we’ll conform a sequence that was offline edited in Avid to Apple’s Color, where you’ll be able to grade from the original R3Ds. You will not believe it, but it’s actually a pretty quick and painless process!

Slip, Slide, Ripple, Roll. Trim your way to Edits

I’ve been editing on non-linear systems for 12 years. With each passing year I’m happy to say I’m still learning. One of the tools that took me a while to really grasp was the trim tools. In fact it wasn’t until I had to learn Final Cut Pro about 7 years ago that I truly started to appreciate the power of the trim. I use the trim tool daily, hourly, probably many times a minute. The trim tools make an editor’s life easier. Trimming is like the wax you put on your car.
