October 2008: Features
Marshall Levy | I always film a wedding ceremony with at least three cameras--usually four or five and even more if I have an assiatnt. This article will discuss how I position those cameras at typical Jewish and Christian ceremonies, along with strategies for getting the best coverage possible.

October 2008: Tutorials
Ben Balser | In constant speed time remapping, we have only two keyframes: one at the In Point and one at the Out Point of the clip. Both are "corner" keyframes, which means they are angles with no Bezier adjustment abilities. The whole clip moves at one "constant" speed—no changes, simple as that. Also, with constant speed changes, the duration of our clip in the Timeline window will change accordingly. With variable speed remapping, we can have many keyframes throughout the clip, and each can be a corner or a "smooth" keyframe.

October 2008: In the Studio
Ben Balser | Is Final Cut Server for everyone? In a nutshell, no. A one- or two-person shop would do better to manually create a folder structure on a hard drive and use Adobe Bridge to manage its assets. But for mid-size and larger studios, broadcast stations, and environments where you have multiple people doing different jobs on multiple projects, FCSvr can be a huge timesaver and organizer. It's powerful, flexible, and really nice for a version one release.

October 2008: Column: Amen Corner
Tim Siglin | Sometimes things just don't go as planned. As we get ready for the holidays, including church pageants and celebrations that have to be recorded, broadcast, or streamed, it's worth taking a moment to think about contingency plans. Should you roll tapes in the cameras as well as at the master recorder? Is it time to buy a disk-based recording device to act as a backup to the master recorder? These issues were brought home a few weeks ago when a client emailed in a panic.

October 2008: Column: Conference Wrap-Up
Shawn Lam | Now with talk of the U.S. economy revolving around sub-prime mortgage problems, record crude oil prices, and hints of a recession, I was interested to see what message Roy Chapman and his lineup of speakers would give at this year's 18th annual WEVA Expo, and they didn't disappoint, with many of the speakers sharing valuable business strategy insight, interspersed with the usual breathtaking video

Jan Ozer | According to many pundits, Bill Gates's mention of a forthcoming new version of Windows is the death knell of Windows Vista, and for many users—myself included—it's not a moment too soon.

October 2008: Column: Strictly Business
Steve Yankee | It takes self-discipline and time management skills to balance that desire with doing what it takes to become successful in business. The next time you find yourself caught up in a chat, or lost inside your inbox, remember that your time is the only irreplaceable trade commodity you possess, and that's why it's such an expensive thing to waste.
