Patrick Southern and Sam Mestman take us on a detailed walk-through of the workflow involved in the post production of a feature. We start with part one, on set where the capture of logging information is essential to cut time and costs in post production.

XML is an acronym that gets used a lot in editing and the transfer of media in the FCPX ecosystem.

They finally adopted Final Cut Pro X, and David explains why exactly the other NLEs were not selected. Video included!
