Basic Editing

Hi Stage 32'ers! Question. As a screenwriter, I'll probably never edit but while I'm at home, I feel like I should learn the basics. Where does one start? Cheers!

Interesting perspective..... I also feel many tools out there for VFX are becoming more user-friendly. I think the downside for someone using vfx software is the time to learn it versus the project timeline.

Thiago R Desouza

I'm an editor with VFX background, I would love to find out more about the project...now to the topic.

How is the editing going? There are some Adobe books/PDFs that literally work you through projects using clips that you can download for free online.

Cie Peterson

Thanks for the info, Christopher. Finished that project - waiting for the client's green light to share - and am already near completion on the next. Getting better all the time.
