CHALLENGE TIME! You are lent some expensive, professional grade video equipment for 18 hours and told that you may use it as you see fit in the time you have. Assuming little to no preparation beforehand, what do you do and/or film with it? Ideally you'd like the owner (or anyone else who sees your work) to be mildly impressed, knowing that you have no actual solo film making experience whatsoever. [more inside]

This is a Final Cut question:
I would like to show an image with a video inside it. More specifically, so the question is clear, I would like to show (in my video) a fake website that has an embedded video. So, "the website" will be a still image, but there is video within it. I hope that's clear. Would really appreciate any help!

Why do these clips look great in the Final Cut Pro viewer at 110%, but interlace-y at 100% and upon export? How is this even possible? [more inside]

The first 28 minutes of the export are perfectly in sync, and then suddenly it's Final Cut Pro export is massively out-of-sync, after about a half hour of the exported quicktime movie. Part of the movie has disappeared, and the audio includes parts of the movie I've edited out. This
article suggests my processor might be overwhelmed. Is there a solution? [more inside]

this is kind of a redo about a former question. I have a SAN at work that we use for storage of all of our media for video editing. We would like to figure out the best way to tag all of our media for searching from now on. [more inside]

Hello, filter. We're making a movie in Final Cut Express, and one of our desires is to have an animated gif looping in the background during green screen footage. Yet, we are unable to do this.
Does anyone have any solutions? Thanks.

Thinking about buying an iMac.
I'm looking at the 24inch model with 2.8 MHz processor. I plan on doing some Final Cut and After Effects work, nothing insane like HD or heavy graphics. Will this computer serve my needs? [more inside]

What's the best way to encode DV for playback on Mac and Windows? I'm editing in Final Cut and would like output that doesn't mess with the aspect ration (no fat/squished heads), no interlacing jaggies, and can play on a G4 ibook or Pentium4 without stuttering. (Bonus points if the file size is smaller than DV!) [more inside]

I'm going to be getting Final Cut Studio 5.1 at work. Can I edit mpeg-2 files in it? I couldn't in the old versions, and I can't figure out the tech specs to know whether I can INPUT mpeg-2 to edit or just export to it.

I have a question that relates to the recent announcement about Reason 3. Reason is a intuitive and relatively simple (probably the easiest) software based music program. Is Reason and other programs making music production to easy? Has it been demystified? Coupled with the internet there is certainly a lot of electronic musicians nowadays.
I just have trouble when I think about it because I make music (with Reason) and I'd like to believe it's original and everything, but maybe it isn't.
I have a friend who makes short movies and he says that it has happened to movie making because of Final Cut and Premiere. But I can't imagine this is so because films are (or should be) complex and there are so many things that have to be done right.
Is the musician not special anymore? [more inside]
