Film and Video Editing Theory: How Editing Creates Meaning

Film and Video Editing Theory offers an accessible, introductory guide to the practices used to create meaning through editing. In this book, Michael Frierson synthesizes the theories of the most prominent film editors and scholars, from Herbert Zettl, Sergei Eisenstein, and Noël Burch to the work of landmark Hollywood editors like Walter Murch and Edward Dmytryk. In so doing, he maps out a set of craft principles for readers, whether one is debating if a flashback reveals too much, if a certain cut clarifies or obscures the space of a scene, or if a shot needs to be trimmed. The book is grounded in the unity of theory and practice, looking beyond technical proficiency in a specific software to explain to readers how and why certain cuts work or don’t work.

Transforming a PC into a Video-Editing Power-House

Transforming a PC into a Video-Editing Power-House. I thought this was a fairly straight-forward process: take my PC, pull all the guts out of the old case, put them in a new case, add some extra disks, configure a RAID array or two and call it done. The actual process ended up being much more convoluted and interesting than that. How about a RAID array with a transfer rate of 16,046.7 MB/s? That is sixteen thousand and forty-six point seven MegaBytes per second, which is sixteen GigaBytes per second. Pretty good, if I say so myself. The data transferred without the heads even moving! Computer science IS voodoo! It is amazing how bounce-back from a poor connection could convince my computer that it was writing to an array of hard-drives at a physically impossible rate. Amusing but bogus. The results when the disks rotated and the heads moved were much more mundane, but still four times the individual drive transfer rate. A faster version of this project could be built with faster hard-drives, even upgrading all drives to Seagate would be an improvement, based on test results. Ideally, one should start with: a faster processor and random access memory (RAM); a faster motherboard, with faster data buses; and faster hard-drives. I would also look for a motherboard with more SATA III (6Gb/sec) ports on board and a case that can hold more hard-drives. There are faster hard-drives and faster memory being developed. Even the hybrid SSD/SATA drive I installed in my MacBook improved performance. The future looks very good. Regardless of future possible improvements, the current state of this computer will make the author’s video-editing hobby much quicker, and more fun!
