Philip Hinkle | The Bolt seems well-built, with an ABS plastic case and solid-feeling knobs and switches. It isn't a perfect light for all situations, but it's a useful tool if your typical wedding-day workflow includes using a stand-mounted light.

Philip Hinkle | In this sixth installment in our six-part series of tutorials on Grass Valley EDIUS 6.0, instructor Philip Hinkle explores a new third-party keyer plug-in called ROBUSKEY. What's so great about ROBUSKEY is that it allows you to make a great key out of poorly shot footage. It's a third-party utility that's recently come to market that plugs in really well to EDIUS. I'm going to show you how to clean it up and have your keys looking the best they can be.

Philip Hinkle | In the fourth tutorial in our six-part series on Grass Valley EDIUS 6, we'll discuss Singular Software's PluralEyes, a third-party plug-in now available for EDIUS 6 that allows you, the editor, to easily sync all of your audio and video sources quickly on your timeline without going through the laborious task of doing it manually.

Philip Hinkle | Most pro-level NLEs today incorporate a multicam feature that helps event editors by making their edit process simple and quick. Grass Valley EDIUS is no exception. It has a robust multicam feature set that is difficult to match in other NLEs. I hope this tutorial helps you speed through your multicam edits and accomplish more work in less time.

Philip Hinkle | The second tutorial in our ongoing series on Grass Valley EDIUS is on a new feature in EDIUS 6.0 called Proxy Mode editing. Proxy Mode allows you to edit with low-resolution proxy files, which make field editing is easier because they conserve your system resources, allowing you to work as efficiently with a laptop or other lower-powered computer as on the tower systems in your studio. It should speed up your workflow and allow you to edit in more places than you ever thought possible.

Philip Hinkle | Depending on how much you need an anti-shake filter—and particularly if you've experienced rolling shutter issues with your HDSLR or other CMOS camera—Mercalli 2.0 could be a great investment. The combination of improved shake reduction, reduced picture degradation from zooming in, and the much-needed rolling shutter correction make for a great update for a tool that was already my anti-shake plug-in of choice.

Philip Hinkle | The Steddiepod is designed to be used as a monopod, a tripod, and even a flying stabilizer. Can it be all those at the same time and do those functions effectively? Well, being a shooter who's always searching for the best and most cost-effective stabilizer to perform all these tasks without adding too much extra gear or breaking my budget, I thought it would be worth checking out; read on and watch the clip that accompanies the article to see how it performed.

Philip Hinkle | As he's hit the speaking circuit in recent months, 2009 EventDV 25 honoree Ray Roman has maintained steadfastly that most of the stunning shots that elevate his wedding work are achieved through basic, solid shooting and composition along with a quiet command presence on site. But 2008 all-star Philip Hinkle wanted to see for himself, so he followed Ray and his wife and partner, Jessica, on a recent shoot to find out how Ray Roman Films gets the job done.

Philip Hinkle | Back in July my wife and our summer intern had the opportunity to attend a hands-on training Class with Jeff Wright from Blue Skies Cinema. The class was presented in suburban Chicago in conjunction with the Illinois Videographers Association (IVA). Jeff and his wife, Andee, present several intensive workshops each year at their Southern California studio (as well as some stunning nearby locations), and Jeff frequently goes on the road to offer training with local and regional associations as well. I went along to check it all out and document the effectiveness of the training for this article.

Philip Hinkle | Overall, Dream in Color is a good training DVD for videographers interested in learning color grading techniques that will enhance their wedding and event productions, but it stops a little short of the greatness you might expect from a videographer as talented and innovative as Joshua Smith.

You can rename, organize, and categorize clips with a handy, thumbnail-rich GUI as you capture, index, and trim clips directly in the application.
