Editing

After the director shouts “Cut!” the editing process begins. Editing involves logging the best takes, capturing them to the hard drive of the workstation, and trimming and sequencing them in a timeline. Increasingly, this process is taking place on location, with portable systems, during production. Checking for timing, continuity, and performance on location provides an opportunity to get it right before the actors have departed for their trailers.

Apple's wildly popular video-editing application, Final Cut Pro, is ideally suited to run on the current generation of PowerBook laptop computers, making effective use of the laptops' FireWire ports to capture a variety of native digital video formats to the hard disk, including DV, DVCAM, DVCPRO, DVCPRO 50, and DVCPRO HD.
