To The Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we will no longer be updating 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 website and will continue to be a place for interviews with editors and other film professionals.

Everyone who worked for 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!

Yours truly,
Gordon Burkell Founder

Apple Motion tip

November 23, 2012, 12:38 PM

When learning Apple Motion I suggest that people avoid using keyframes to animate parameters. Motion is much happier using behaviours to change values over time.

Introducing atomic particles

November 23, 2012, 12:37 PM

Atomic particles are one of the big new effects in HitFilm 2 Ultimate. They create incredible particle arrays with a ton of customization options but can also be a little tricky to wrap your head around when you first try them out. Today's tutorial aims to clear up any confusion and get you up and running right away.

After Effects: Snapping to whole pixels

November 21, 2012, 05:05 PM

After Effects' use of sub-pixel interpolation is helpful most of the time but can be a problem when working with layers that you want to remain sharp including Shape Layers and type. I often find myself moving and scaling these layers, resulting in soft edges when the layers aren't positioned on or scaled to whole pixels.

There's much more to visual communication than simply slapping a series of shots together. With video, you need to think about the way you connect your shots.
