Scripting in NLE (only a wish)

October 10, 2013 Leave a comment

I was always wondering, why NLEs don’t support a simple script language? Ведь it would be nice to write something like this:


and have name of the clip #3 from track v1 appear as burn-in on screen. Yeah, I know that in PPro we now have an effect for that, but what if a need to do something more complex:

with track(v1).clips do
  if (clip(name)=='test.mov') then

Or, another idea: why don’t we have a Link Effect? Like in Apple Motion, when you can link one element (clip, filter, behaviour, etc) to another. For example, changing blur amount on a “master” clip would change blur on all “linked” clips. We could call it “attached clips”, to avoid confusion with existing Link functionality.

Cut the Grass!

July 26, 2013 Leave a comment

Today was the last day of Grass Valley EDIUS 7 Train-the-Trainer event. Now I’m certified “Grass Cutter”, how they call it, both Green and Silver levels. In other words, I’m now End User and Trainer.

Big thanks to my master trainer, Ulli, since I’m not the easiest person to deal with during T3s (because of my annoyingly picky questions).

Here’s my EDIUS Pro 7 End User and EDIUS Prime Trainer certificates.

And these are my green and silver level pins!
