Top Gear editing

Monday’s are generally a nice day regarding editing.

Transcoding Top Gear ready for editing

I simply have pull out show footage up from Top Gear; put an endboard and BBC DOG (digital on-screen graphic) on the clip. Then, having exported the clip to the correct specifications I publish it with iBroadcast; the way in which the BBC now uploads clips.

Editing with Final Cut ProMost of the time I have to play the waiting game as every clip has to be signed off, or complied…like in Flight of the Navigator…. “compliance”.

There’s no rest for the wicked though…

While working on the Top Gear website, I was also working on Eastenders, editing together some montages which are always great; especially when you put some upbeat music on them!

It seems that my new gel keyboard cover is getting quite the workout at the moment. Come September though, it’ll be getting even more action…ohhhhhhhhhh

Stay tuned!
