Editing Day One (Whitby Residential Short Film) 24th April 2015

by weslar

Organising the footage took a long time. I mean a real long time. We have 18 Scenes, over 90GB of footage & audio. No need for a blog about my organisational skills, I renamed the clips, moved them into a neat and tidy folder.

Nice and neat.

Then imported them into Final Cut Pro X.

Some are out of place, some have just clips without audio. Others have synched clips.

For every scene that had audio that could be synced with in camera sound, I took the time to do that also. I ran into a few problems doing this, some of the audio didn’t sync perfectly together, nothing that can’t be fixed manually.  The current edit is almost at a complete rough cut.
