When working in large video-editing projects, you constantly need to locate various project materials—whether it be a sequence, a specific clip, a precise frame, or the physical media files on your drives.
Rather than hunting and pecking through your bins, folders, and drives to find what you need, tap into the useful searching and locating tools built into the software.

This week kicks off my new Video Post Tips Weekly training series, covering all-things-post-production.
Each Wednesday, I’ll teach a specific technique or workflow—but I’ll be covering it in multiple nonlinear editing (NLE) platforms like Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, and Avid Media Composer. This is a great opportunity for you to just watch the movie(s) applicable to your preferred NLE—or you can watch each movie and start to build a vocabulary for how other NLEs tackle similar operations.
It’s my goal to make the series a cross-pollination of editing tips that familiarizes editors with a wide variety of techniques and software.
This week’s topic, master clip effects, explores a really exciting development in editing that allows you to correct or stylize your clips right at the master clip level—rather than applying effects to individual clips in your Timeline. Specifically, we’ll be looking at how to do this in Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X.

Log recording is an incredibly handy mode to consider when shooting video. It uses a different color space than standard recording modes, making the image appear flat and washed out—but giving you tremendous flexibility in post-production. When recording in log mode, you retain detailed information in the highlights and shadows of your footage, allowing increased dynamic range in the image itself.
In this episode, Robbie and I explore log recording workflows on a multi-camera set, then transition to post-production and process the resulting footage with Adobe Premiere Pro and SpeedGrade to show you the benefits of log recording firsthand.

Whether you’re editing for documentaries, reality television, or corporate videos, you’re likely to run into this scenario: The talent is giving a long speech, perhaps unrehearsed. In the middle of that speech, you’d like to pull out a really good sound bite—but the pauses around the sound bite don’t create enough space (known as a “handle”) to cleanly isolate the segment. Sound familiar?
There are a couple of time-honored solutions to this problem, including muting the audio before and after the desired sound bite, freezing the video to extend the handle, or performing a split edit (cutting the video separately from the audio). All of these compromises, however, can appear visually jarring, taking the viewer out of the flow of the program.
