Are the new iMacs good enough for video editing?

November 29, 2012, 14:53 PM


In the past, the sheer horsepower of our computers was far less, so much so, that most computers could only play back video using smaller image sizes or lower frame rates. (Anyone remember watching computer videos that were 320x240? I remember building a business where the only videos we could create were that size.)

Dann Cahn, editor on 'I Love Lucy', dies at 89

November 25, 2012, 16:36 PM


Using a newly developed editing machine that he dubbed the "three-headed monster," Dann Cahn pioneered multi-camera editing on sitcoms in the 1950s while helping to craft a classic, "I Love Lucy." Lucy broke ground in television by employing three cameras instead of one for filming, a then-novel system that allowed an episode to be filmed as though it were a stage play — continuously and in sequence.
