Avid Xpress Pro / Media Composer and Charlotte's Web

Avid has spun itself another huge with Charlotte’s Web. The filmmakers used multiple Avid Media Composer Adrenaline systems connected to an Avid Unity MediaNetwork on location and at the studio to handle the massive amount of source material and provide cuts in progress to visual effects houses. Avid Xpress Pro software on a laptop was used at the director’s home to cut storyboards during pre-production.The editors used the Media Composer Adrenaline system to work with as many as 10 layers at a time, compositing and rendering the effects to ensure that all of the elements came together smoothly in a given scene. "We couldn’t have done it without the AniMatte tool. We were always comping all of these layers together," says Plisco "For example, the geese were always shot by themselves because they were so feisty and could not be in scenes with the other animals, so they’d always be on a separate plate. I can’t imagine another system being able to handle what we did." -Sabrina Pilsco, Editor, Charlottes Web
He used Avid Xpress Pro software on his own Macintosh laptop during pre-production to handle pre-visualization tasks quickly and conveniently at home. Explains Plisco, "During the storyboard phase, he would work with our additional editor on the Media Composer Adrenaline system in the editing suite, and then he would literally take the laptop home and work on the storyboards himself, so he could refine what camera angles and shots he wanted. It really helped him plan production."
