Shooting for FCP and Avid Editing

Avid FCP editing.bmp

If you are a pro or just getting into editing and vidoeography you need to be aware of a very important part of shooting your footage. You need to shoot, or have your camera operators, shoot for the edit. For example: If you are shooting an interview situation you need to have at least 5-10 seconds after you hit record and 5-10 seconds before you stop recording where the interviewee is looking at the camera, or desired direction, so that your edits will be smooth. This may sound so simple but it is often not done by many camera operators but more so the subjects are not told they need to do this. It makes it really hard to insert a nice 20-frame dissolve while your subject is not moving according to what you are shooting. This is great rule to always follow no matter what type of subject you are shooting. It makes it so much easier when you get back to your Avid or Final Cut machine and have nice clean cuts to start with. This will make your editing process go so much smoother and make for a much more professional production.
