    Regarding "Take My Hand", it's a real tour de force, Alan. A good positive story very well told. You obviously had experienced, sensitive actors who under your direction seemed totally natural. Goodness knows how many people out there need this kind of help. I shed a few tears myself, since the video spoke to me personally. My own precious daughter passed away after a serious illness 3 years ago. Friends are super important at times likes these. A great testimony of your multi-skilled creative abilities, Alan. Glad you gave EDIUS a credit.

    It is a small world. I was just at KTTV about 6 weeks ago training people on EDIUS.

    Hi Pat and Lew,

    Pat - takes one to know one! Thanks for the kind words - much appreciated. Had a really good time with this Festival film. Great acting, as you said.

    Lew - yes, I think Dick was Lynn's father. She's a wonderful buddy of ours, and lives only 3 blocks away. She's a really great gal.

    Thanks for tuning in!
    Alan

    Legally, I had to wait until now to post our award-winning Festival film on Vimeo - so I thought it might be of interest to members of this forum. Directed this and shot it with my new Canon XF400 in 1080p and edited on EDIUS 9.4. Who says EDIUS cannot edit dramatic presentations!! A snap!

    Would love any comments from you guys.
    Best always,
    Alan
    Fabulous as always Alan. What a pleasure it is to see great acting. I will have to ask Sam how the good the Director was ;-). Seriously, you are indeed a master of the craft.

    Award-winning Festival film

    Hi all,

    Also, can now post an unsold half-hour TV Pilot which I directed and shot last year with a Canon C300. The dramatic editing was done on my EDIUS 9.2 setup, and the Special Effects, mattes and overlays had some help from After Effects. Small crew totaling 7 including sound, grips and camera. 5 days of shooting on a Los Angeles sound stage.

    Would love any comments from you guys.
    Best always,

    At the moment I do not have a HDR monitor. I have wait until it gets affordable to me. But I also like to have a 10bit camera.

    So I´m doing my HDR-grading with the Edius waveform-monitor and keep the values between 0 nits and 500 nits only direct sunlight or explosions go up to 1000 nits. Then I put a testexport on usbdevice and watch it on my HDR TV. The only thing I can do to view/control HDR on a normal monitor is to use PCC at the last step in the timeline to convert HDR (BT2020 PQ) back to SDR (BT709) and then deactivate this for encoding.

    This method is only good for a few films but not for professionals, who do many films.

    Thank you for feedback and watching the short film on LG TV. I take a look if I can improve that rotoscope.

    4k (UHD) HDR10

    I have edited a short film with Edius 9.5 and MB Looks plugin.

    It is a BT2020 PQ project that delivers HDR10. I uploaded the film to youtube and tested firefox and microsoft browsers. Only the firefox is able to play 4K HDR correctly.

    Rick - Boston was always at the lead in Educational TV broadcasting, and forged new territories in that medium for sure. Being a director/cameraman out here with an Electrical Engineering degree, I had the great advantage of helping to develop and use a widely used predecessor to Avid, which took hold in the TV industry even before Avid came onto the scene.

    One was a system called LaserEdit, which was a Laserdisc oriented editing system, where dailies were transferred to Laserdiscs (remember those short-lived silver platters the size of LP records?), and the computer controlled the video on the discs to a hard-drive edit as video takes were chosen, marked "in" and "out" and became the next part of the edit (along with meta-data to assemble the original tapes into a final version).

    The other one, even before LaserEdit was called "Montage" (to the best of my recollection). It was a truly cumbersome (i.e.*******")system, whereby a bank of somewhere between 12 and 20 VHS tape decks were loaded with VHS dailies, and synchronized in playback on multiple monitors (1 for each deck), and the decisions of what take to use at what point was chosen and transferred to a "Master" VHS tape. Can you imagine. But it was progress. I never edited anything on that system, and never wanted to try!

    Back when you were a kid, I suspect!

    And now - look how far we've come.

    Happy editing,
    Alan

    It's so amazing that most people do not stop to enjoy the wondrous beauty of the world around them. I think those of us in the arts are the exception.
    Alan, I totally agree. I think many of us are born with artistic flair without even knowing it. Like you, I started to make my first films when I was a teenager at high school. Celluloid in those days, of course. I have spent most of my life as a cameraman and editor experiencing the ever-changing technologies available. Even when I started producing and directing professionally I could not stop filming and editing.

    While I was working on a video-tape tv series called "Frontline" at WGBH in Boston I was invited to try a new non-linear edit system called Avid. When I told my media friends in the UK what I had seen they said... "it will never catch on. Editing by computer? Never." Well, as we all know, Avid trail-blazed the way for many to follow, and look where we are now!"

    The great thing is that camera gear and editing software such as EDIUS has now become affordable for almost everyone. We can therefore spend more time perfecting our creations. And in my opinion, time is what it takes to be totally visually aware of what you describe as... "the wondrous beauty of the world."
