Re: Post Production: What Is A Raid?
by Romina Rey
Hi Walter,

I was just wondering if I can make my own raid with purchasing more external hard drives. I am almost out of space on my 4TB drive for my documentary I am editing on avid 5.5 running on Lion. Can I just buy another 4TB drive and daisy chain it? How will avid know to continue to create avid media files in the new drive?

Thank you very much for your help.

Editing: The Kuleshov Effect Put to the Test

One of the most powerful discoveries in the early days of editing became known as The Kuleshov Effect: the same piece of footage means different things depending on the shots that surround it. It is a mental phenomenon by which the audience derives more meaning from the interaction of two sequential shots than from a single shot in isolation. One hundred years later, Sven Pape of This Guy Edits puts this venerable axiom to the test. Does this fundamental principle of modern editing still hold up? Prepare to be amazed.
