Edit 2 played host to the first video edit in Liverpool. Cutting the rushes of a three camera shoot was no easy feat in the time given for the production by Punchline. Three medical case studies were edited with a spectrum of codecs from a Z1, (a real pain digitising tape again) EX1 and GH2 and ingest took until late at night to enable editing to start early the next day. Jamie an ex Lime Pictures editor now freelance and working on Casualty claimed he was getting used to editing medical topics! Final cut pro used to ingest, cut and basic grade.
The system was a temporary rig as the new equipment is still being specified but it is thought that edit two will be an HD video and Pro Tools HD suite.
