In the virtual local pub that is the interweb's many forums, a few of us gathered to pontificate about HDV audio recently.

Right. That's it. I've had it with interlacing. It was a cool trick back in the days of Ye Olde Cathode Ray Tube and valves, but interlacing is hanging around like a bad smell in these days of LCD and Plasma displays. Is this web page interlaced? No. Are any computer screens interlaced? No. Is a video projector interlaced? No. Is your TV at home interlaced? Well.. Maybe yes, if you haven't...

I'm wrapping up a little trio of edits which involve bringing together existing footage from a variety of not-exactly-optimal sources (odd MPEG1 files, WMVs, some DV, all 4:3) with some professionally shot 720p footage. Thank goodness for FCP's multi-format timeline (and MPEGstreamClip for converting virtually anything into anything else).

It may be a little post-modern to blog about a blog, but you may be interested in Alex Gollner's recent post over at Editing Organised.

For those with long memories of the UK FCP User Group, you may recall my rants about chromakey and DV. How in theory it should not be done, but in reality it can be done with external plug-ins.

Since making room for an EX1 in my life, something wonderful has happened to my edit work: I have plenty of well named clips in projects that are filed and searchable.
