Copying wanted footage from one video tape to another, in any order, end to end for a finished production
editing videotape using two or more VCRs. The original footage is played and only the desired footage is re-recorded onto a master. The master is duplicated for distribution
also known as analog editing. Editing analog video in a linear fashion, adding one image after another into a long string of video cuts. The disadvantage of linear editing is that if you change the length of a cut five minutes into a thirty-minute infomercial, you then have to re-edit everything that followed the change.
A type of tape editing in which you assemble the program from beginning to end. If you require changes, you must rerecord everything downstream of the change. The physical nature of the medium (for example, analog videotape) dictates how you place material on the medium.
Video editing style where a program is edited together by moving shots from the original source tapes to a master tape, one by one. Because the assembly is linear, changes made to an earlier point of the tape result in the rest of the edited tape being reassembled.
A process of editing film or video in which scenes are assembled one following another in linear time. That is, the series of scenes must be edited in the same order in which they will be viewed. Some linear systems function with the aid of computers, others are non-computerized.
A form of analog editing in which sequential edits are laid out in a linear fashion from the start to the end of the tape. Precludes inserting footage without re-recording all following edits. In contrast to nonlinear editing.
Editing using media like tape, in which material must be accessed in order (e.g., to access scene 5 from the beginning of the tape, one must proceed from scene 1 through scene 4). (See Nonlinear Editing)
The traditional form of tape based video editing.
The traditional form of editing videotape, Linear Editing uses multiple VCRs to edit tape-to-tape.
Describes the method of copying frames and shots from one videotape (or other video storage media) to another in sequence.
Also known as tape to tape editing. A method of editing in which footage is copied from one tape to another in the required order ( more info).
(n) See tape-to-tape editing.
Tape-based system where scenes are laid down in order on tape. If a scene is changed in duration, then all the following material must be laid down again.
Traditional video editing as done on a tape-to-tape system. In this model, the client typically receives a third generation tape.
A process of recording different segments on to a master tape from beginning to ending in a linear fashion. An edit controller is used to control the VTRs and place edit points. The process is similar to using a typewriter, in that it is difficult to add an extra paragraph (footage)in the middle of the document (video). Computer based non-linear editing is becoming the more popular method of editing.
This is also called tape based editing. The video stays on the tape, played back through a VCR or VTR and is then edited either with a computer based editing system that controls the editing VTR's or a stand alone edit controller that will control the decks for editing. This system requires no digitizing or compression of the video and can play back straight off the original video taped with the camera. For layering and compositing effects or scenes that require a lot of manipulation, it is a slower process or impossible depending on the effect. For long scenes or scenes not out of order, this is a much faster process for editing.
Analog, tape-based editing, called linear because once the program is edited scene lights can not be changed without re-editing all scenes which follow it. Compare with nonlinear editing.
