Self-promotion ahead! Which is funny, because it’s self-promotion about self-promoting. Maybe you’ve seen some posts about the Southeast Creative Summit. Maybe not. I’ll explain anyway. The Southeast Creative Summit is happening October 25-27 in Atlanta. It’s three days of workshops taught by working professionals in the video production industry — sound design, color grading, motion… Continue reading Come See Me at the Southeast Creative Summit!
Read a guest post I wrote about time management tips for the new year on Screenlight’s blog.
I’m currently working on a training video with a lot of text clips in the FCP7 sequence and I needed to change the color of all of them. After a quick Google search to make sure there wasn’t some elegant and quick way to do this since you can’t copy and paste text color attributes… Continue reading How to Change the Color of Multiple Text Clips in Final Cut Pro 7
Or, why I’m team #steveavid. Or, why I’m kind of weird about using Premiere. I started nonlinear editing when I was about 13 or 14. At that time, I had a Sony handicam that recorded to Hi8 tape. For a time, I used the software that came with my camera, MGI Videowave. Before long, I… Continue reading Premiere and Me – Sorry, John.
Nightmare is probably too strong a word. More like a mediocre dream where you spend the whole thing waking up and getting ready for school, then actually wake up and have to do it all over again. I recently edited part of a behind the scenes feature for Leah Not Leia, a film I PA’d… Continue reading The Nightmare Edit
I haven’t had a lot of posting time in the last few weeks. I had another shooting trip to Dallas/Fort Worth area, and then a conference in Las Vegas for a week. In the mean time, I’ve been co-editing a local short film with Katie Toomey called Love Dance, directed by Kate Chaplin. It’s about… Continue reading Love Dance
So a week and some days after FCPx is released and I still have noting valuable to contribute to the noise other than updating my own commentary. 1. Apple done effed this up. They tried to damage control it via Larry Jordan, I think. They should have rolled it out with more of a frame… Continue reading More FCPX Thoughts
With the new FCPX being released today, I guess I should be blogging about it, trying to be first at discovering some hidden bug or missing feature. However, I won’t be getting it for a while – we’ll be getting my husband a new MBP this fall and I’ll be installing it on that for… Continue reading FCPX + Internets
11 Things that make you edit more efficiently (and therefore more professionally) that most new users don’t know (because it isn’t that intuitive and they don’t read the manual.) Here’s another installment in my on-going blog series about Things I Didn’t Learn in School, which is basically a series where I half-complain about the lack… Continue reading Things I Didn’t Learn in School: 11 Things that make you edit more efficiently
Last Tuesday was about the most exciting Tuesday night I’ve ever had as an adult (I don’t get out much). Watching the FCPUG Supermeet live (via Twitter) and seeing Final Cut Pro X unfold was a pretty interesting experience. I have to say I’m looking forward to using the software. I really like what Apple… Continue reading FCP X!
