DIGITAL PRODUCTION BUZZ
FEATURED AUDIO INTERVIEW
Each week, I feature a different interview from our podcast: Digital Production Buzz
. This week, I want to call an interview with Alan Heim
to your attention.
Alan is the president of the American Cinema Editors Guild (ACE) and began his career editing such films as: "Hair," "Network," and "All That Jazz." During our interview we talk about editing those films, and making the transition to editing digitally.
I found the interview fascinating and encourage you to listen to it.

Subscribers can attend any of our webinars for free. We will send you an email on Tuesday, when the office reopens, with registration instructions.

NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK
Two new articles this week. And, as always, I've updated our Top 3 lists.
FINAL CUT PRO X
Create a Spotlight Effect
Last week, a reader asked how to create a spotlight effect.
I discovered I hadn't written about this, then, when I started to write it, I discovered there are a variety of ways to create this effect.
This article shows three, including the new shape mask tool which is part of color correction.
FINAL CUT PRO X
Color Mask and Shape Mask Effects
FCP 7 had limit effects as part of the Color Corrector 3-way filter.
FCP X has color masks and shape masks, which allow adding a variety of enhancements and effects to our clips.
This article shows you how they work, including how to create the "Pleasantville effect."
Here are the top three articles, webinars, and audio interviews for the past seven days.Articles
