ahhh finally a lotta smooth editing with FCPro - Peter Evanchuck

I guess for all who only have one brain cell working like me, when suddenly for no apparent reason, u remember all the ways to edit ur movie with FCPro and it all works and u spend all ur time editing rather than trying to figure out what went wrong ... well, then when that happens, that's a miracle day for this Director/Editor.

So today and the past few editing days have been like that. So to all u elders who are trying to learn something as complex as FCPro don't give up u'll have 'miracle days' that'll turn into miracle weeks.

Not sure how all other producer/director/cameramen edit but i usually remember every shot/scene that I took which is in the bin so when i bring it up in the viewer my memory is refreshed as i recall the entire shot and what was going on around and in my head when i took it. This speeds up my ability to edit a scene/sequence, I find it beneficial to bike or kayak or walk around and think about the movie then in my head make decisions what should go where and my head plays the shot into the scene and i know from my head's viewer how that will look - this facility helps me greatly

Today all that came together for a new addition to the opening and now she be smooth and very interesting to watch where time, place and intrigue are all satisfied in the viewers mind.

p.s. the motto is 'The Director that learns to edit their movie, saves a whack o dough!' I have a great fine cut editor who then goes over it and makes everything that needs to be smoother... smoother ... ahhh life is then very good to see one's hard work come alive and become finished.
