Online Versus Offline

With the transition from linear tape-to-tape editing studios to computer-based nonlinear editing systems over the past decade, editors just entering the industry are somewhat unfamiliar with the terms online editing and offline editing. In the past, people were forced to assemble a rough cut of their project offline on lower-end systems. When they were ready with the basis of their program, they could move into studios with very pricey equipment to perform their online edit at the highest quality with all the finishing touches. Improvements in the quality of video capture cards, high-speed hard drives, editing software, and output controls from computers, along with continuously falling equipment prices, have made it possible for more people to perform their own online editing sessions all on one system (finishing your project on the same computer on which you do your offline edit). Premiere is one of these programs that can be integrated into a consumer editing system for editing home movies. It is also powerful enough to be used in professional environments, as shown in Figure 2.1.
