FCG074 – Avid in TV (feat. Austin Flack)


Why is Avid entrenched in reality television? In the interest of  being fair and hearing both sides of every story, I invited Austin Flack to explain from the view point of a hollywood based reality TV editor why he thinks Avid will not soon be replaced as the editor of choice.

We talk a lot about the role of an Assistant Editor and what he means to a television editor. Chris gets fired up about cutting music at the subframe level and w e go deep into the trim controls in Avid verses FCPX and Chris probably alienates a LOT of editors with one of his statements.

This is a VERY interesting show but definitely checkout some of the links in the show notes.

    Hello. I was trying to get in touch with you multiple times on Twitter and now here in the comments. You don’t have a contact form! The only way I can post feedback is by Voice Mail and the comments. Since I don’t want to speak, I have to use this, but I would much rather prefer to send a mail instead. Sorry I’m a little bit bitter, because I’m trying for about two weeks now.

    I wanted to say that I’d be interested in an interview with Thomas Zöchling on FCPX Grill. He’s the author of a small software called Claquette. It’s a screen recording solution which directly exports to Final Cut and Motion. I think he’s got quite some interesting insights into the inner workings of FCPX and Motion, and I’m sure an interview with him would be really interesting for this show.

    Thank you.
