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

Unexpected problem with Media Encoder

January 11, 2013, 07:50 AM

Recently, I was working on a project in Adobe Premiere which required exporting the Sequence as multiple sub-clips to .f4v format. Of course, as often happens, there was a problem with one of the exported clips, so I had to set it up in Premiere and re-export to Adobe Media Encoder.

CS6 Techniques: 103 Analyze Content: Find Faces

December 23, 2012, 11:35 AM

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis explains how to use the 'Find Faces' function in Premiere Pro which can be a useful function to search/filter in the project panel to display only clips showing people. Although a useful function, it does take a while to analyze the clips, so it isn't always a fast solution.

In this third tutorial on Media Encoder, Andrew Devis shows how to create and use 'Watch Folders' which are folders linked inside of Media Encoder which 'watch' for any footage item that is dropped into them and then encodes that footage item to any other output type of your choice. Andrew shows how to create and set up your watch folders as well as explaining some of the limitations of watch folders as they presently work.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to use the Media Encoder to render out several different versions of a Premiere Pro sequence using easy to find and select presets. Andrew shows how to add sequences without even having to have Premiere Pro open and then change the preset to another one of your choice and add extra outputs to suit your customers' needs.

4k presets for Adobe Media Encoder

December 14, 2012, 07:49 AM

Currently, the Media Encoder (and, by association, Premiere Pro) doesn’t ship with presets for 4k H.264 output, simply because it’s not a common enough format. But it’s reasonably simple to make your own. I won’t go into all the details of H.264 encoding here, but the key thing to know is that the encoder settings include something called Profile and Level.
