“That Post Show” on Media Composer 3.5

that_Post_show_logo.pngI recently participated in the latest episode of the podcast “That Post Show.” It’s now on line and available for your listening enjoyment.

The group consisted of: Norm Hollyn, Bob Russo, Michael Phillips, Jason Diamond, Scott Simmons, John Flowers and me. We talked mostly about Media Composer 3.5, but also covered the FCP/MC competitive landscape, how to put together a unified set of software tools for editing, and other issues, as well.

For details, bios and to download the show go to John’s site: That Post Show.

Or you can just grab the episode from the iTunes Store.

It was a diverse and interesting group and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I’ll be curious to hear what you all think of it.

    I was glad to hear that y’all were occasionally as critical of Avid (protools + MC running simultaneously) as you were of FCP all the time.

    Didn’t know “JKL” was your input, Steve. A generation of editors thanks you for that.

    Excellent discussion. I enjoy working with both Avid an FCP for different reasons and I think that came through. Although I greatly enjoy editing with FCP and have had many great experiences with it, there are times when I just say to myself, “I wish I was doing this with Avid!” on more complex projects.

    In any case, I like that the discussion had mention of Avid DS as well. I started working on DS when it was still Softimage and I loved it. I have as yet to have as much fun putting a project together. For the work I was doing at the time, it was the perfect combination of editing, graphics/compositing and audio. Granted, I wasn’t doing film work.
    I think MC now has a better toolset that is closer to being comparable but I cut on DS before I even started on MC and am still partial to DS interface and the way it worked. DS is cost prohibitive for most but I often wondered why that model wasn’t emulated.
