With new support for a range of capture formats, expanded After Effects capabilities and the introduction of Adobe Audition for Mac, Adobe CS5.5 has a lot to offer a wide gamut of new and emerging content creators.
In this video tutorial, Kevin P. McAuliffe, a senior editor at MIJO in Toronto, shows you how to clean up the noise that comes from downloading and importing already compressed video clips from stock video sources online.
The 2011 NAB show floor was more eclectic than ever, hosting demos of single-body stereo 3D cameras and bleeding-edge DI tools alongside sexy glimpses of new Thunderbolt storage devices, iPad dailies and color-correction and, well, that makeshift tattoo booth outside the big Red tent. But if there was any overarching theme this year, it might be mobility.
Quantel came to NAB this year with the cloud on its mind. Touting "global teamworking," the company was positioning its new QTube system for accessing and editing footage over IP connections as a revolutionary new tool.
Adobe CS 5.5 further develops themes that came on strong in version 4 and especially version 5 of the software - support for working with native file formats, the accelerated Mercury Playback Engine, and management of the metadata that comes with the rapidly expanding range of footage types users have to contend with on the desktop and in the timeline.
In 1994, Pamela Martin edited director David O. Russell's first film, Spanking the Monkey, which was also her first feature as a lead editor. She got her start assisting Tim Squyres and Ang Lee for Lee's first two features, Pushing Hands and The Wedding Banquet, only a few years earlier. She has since edited a string of sharp, dialogue-driven comedies with stellar ensemble casts, notably Little Miss Sunshine. In a slight shift in genre but a return to her roots, she and Russell joined forces for this year's multi-nominated ensemble drama, The Fighter.
Historical recreations are expensive. That's why director Robert Child determined that he would shoot footage for The Wereth 11 one little piece at a time - he was getting elements in the can, not full scene tableaux. StudioDaily asked Frederic Lumiere of Lumiere Media to describe the challenge of editing a project that's made up of tiny bits and pieces, rather than coherent shots and scenes.
Avid today underscored its leadership position in open media production solutions with the introduction of new versions of its flagship editing systems-Media Composer version 5.5, NewsCutter version 9.5 and Symphony version 5.5-in response to customer requests for increased third-party hardware support, enhanced "in the box" functionality, and more open, collaborative workflows with added control integration and format flexibility.
Film & Video got editors Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter to take a break from their work on Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - which is, like The Social Network, being edited with Final Cut Pro - and talk about bringing Fincher's and Sorkin's vision of Business 3.0 (and a bit of old-fashioned loneliness) to bracing life.
