Video workspace

I've gotten work done on the entertainment section but not enough to show you. I need to do the voice overs but the circumstances were poor this week, even for sloppy ones. The destruction and construction are awfully noisy!

So instead, here's an image of my video editing environment. I use Premiere 6.5 on Mac OS X.

The entertainment section I'm working on now has 28 clips listed in the Project bin over on the left. To the right is the monitor where the video plays as I work with it. and to the right of that are some control panels for effects.

Down at the bottom is the most important section--the timeline. This is where I connect the clips, trim them, put them in order, add transitions, and get them just right. The yellow and pale green strips are the video clips in timeline and the powder blue box is a transition from one clip the other other. The jaggedy teal bit below is the audio waveform.

Editing is a lot of fun. I wish I had more time for it.

I know its come up before, but I really like working in Final Cut Pro. I've been doing some editing in it this week, and its just really nice and smooth. I'll grab a screencap. :)

Hi, its me again. Here's a screen grab, just to show the differences/similarities. Im not saying one is better then the other...

Hi Kristen,
I really enjoy editing too, especially when the deadline isn't looming. Mostly I work in Final Cut Pro 3. I'm looking forward to seeing your next clips.
Who films you, and have you ever been prevented from shooting, like in a grocery store?

For this project, MJ was my camerawoman. Some of the interiors I did on my own.

We only had one incident. It was while filming the toilet paper story from last week's shopping section. We positioned ourselves in the back aisle of the second rate supermarket in my neighborhood. We did maybe three handheld takes in 5 minutes. When we were leaving the store, a middle-aged employee came up and asked us if everything was ok.

We played dumb and told him everything was fine. He just pointed at the camera and say we couldn't do that. We played up the stupid foregn woman thing and said we were sorry and left. We had out shots. I didn't care much.

Have you been following the Starbucks saga over at Prof. Lessig's blog? :-)

Heh heh -- Adobe's sliding! I love 5.1, can't get my brain around anything but Avid anymore. Felt compelled to side with you. Assuming the Final Cut crowd is... crowding. Heh.

"Who is this guy? Why is he blogging my blog?"

Heh heh -- Adobe getting crowded out! I love 5.1, can't get my brain around anything but that and Avid anymore. Felt compelled to side with you. Assuming the Final Cut crowd is... crowding. One more time! Crowding! (Yay!)
