Avid Express/Composer Definitions Part 2.

Avid%20Defined.jpg

This is a continuation for Avid Express/Composer definitions. I have compiled what I feel are some misunderstood terms to help you communicate with your peers. I hope that these terms and the entry before this will be of help to you. I will continue to add more definitions so stay tuned for more!

Kerning: The space between text characters in print or media.

Luminance: The measure of the intensity of the combined color (white) portion of the video.

Nonlinear editing: A type of editing where you do not have to edit from start to end. This includes all the types of computer editing and there is no physical order in which the shots must be assembled. This is the modern way of editing and can be used for traditional film cutting once captured digitally.

Postroll: A preset period of time during a preview when a clip will continue to play past the out point before stopping.

Preroll: The process of rewinding tapes to a predetermined cue point so the tape stabilizes before it reached the desired edit (in) point.

Progressive media: Media composed of single frames; each is scanned as one pass.

Replace edit: An edit in which a segment in the sequence is overwritten or replaced with source material of the same duration.

Hopefully this will give you a little more vocabulary knowledge to either impress your peers or at least understand what they are talking about. Stay tuned!
