Organizing Projects

Before you begin, you need to establish a framework for your project—a clear path from beginning to end. This will streamline your process and identify and help you overcome obstacles. You’ll learn how to plan an efficient workflow, determine sound specifications and timecode, and decide when to switch between resolutions.

Planning an Online or Offline Video Workflow

When you receive your project specifications, it’s best to plan the complete workflow you expect to use. Planning will identify possible problems, and early detection will allow you time to alter your route. For example, the New England Aquarium online project content came from six one-hour source tapes. The editor initially planned to capture each tape in its entirety at an online resolution of DVCPRO HD 720p with the resulting data rate of 13.8 Mb/sec. However, a calculation of storage requirements revealed there wasn’t sufficient storage capacity for 6 hours of content. As a result, early in the process, the editor decided to capture only those clips that would become the basis for the edit.
