The trick isn’t simply cutting, coloring, and compressing your film for independent internet distribution. The real trick is keeping your post production pipeline managed so you can cut the sequel while simultaneously finishing an extended director’s cut of the first film in Edit 2 (be it your MacBook Pro on the coffee table or a DaVinci suite with bells on it).
Or maybe you want to collect all your media from thirteen diferent internal and external hard drives and place it in a new Shared Acces Network box. Or move all of day one’s P2 media on drive 67 and day five’s XDCAMmedia on drive 32. Or whatever else your entreprenurial, independently film made heart desires. Media management is your ticket.
The principles I discuss in episode 5 can be applied to all types of HD and SD media formats including footage acquired by the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Nikon D90, Canon HV30, Panasonic HVX-200, Sony EX-1, RED ONE, etc. I highly recommend clicking through for the HD version in case you want to see FCP’s UI properly.
