    1. allow


    2. Precidion


    3. one from within the application itself, such as the Command Editor in Final Cut Pro

      this is different from a "help", right? More of a preference, in terms of shortcuts.

    4. The Command Editor in Final Cut Pro. Notice the search field in the upper, right-hand corner, the one with a magnifying glass, where you can type in a query for the editing operation you’re looking for. It also displays a full keyboard with all the various keyboard combinations, and is color cued as well, grouping similar types of moves. Three columns on the bottom, divide the information into the color-cued editing commands, actual editing commands with their keyboard shortcuts, and use of the special Macintosh modifier keys (Shift, Control, Option and Command). In Final Cut Pro’s case, in the upper left-hand corner, it also allows you to switch between the ‘Default, application’ system, to one of your own devising.

    1. The first, really fun part of editing is the rough assembly, where, after you’ve finished the more tedious process of viewing and organizing your source clips, you can abandon yourself into throwing those clips into your story timeline, helter skelter, in all kinds of ways, moving them around using the software’s navigational rules, and just playing, to see how they look, sound and feel together, for the most impactful way to tell your story.


    2. And, just like learning to play the violin, the music will come after you know your way around the ‘violin bow and fingerboard.’

    3. So how do you decide how much storage/speed you need?

      this "might" be an interesting link to include here: https://www.digitalrebellion.com/webapps/videocalc

    4. older USB2 drives

    6. **[? should I go into detail about the different levels of RAIDs as in directly below, or go with the more general explanation in the next paragraph?]**

      I suggest the general approach in the following paragraph

    7. smaller disks

      replace with hard drives or similar

    8. smaller graphics cards can't cope

      The main purpose of RAID is to increase the data bandwidth for processing in general. I would remove the reference to graphic cards here.

    9. So you must always plan to have enough storage real estate to accommodate the size of your editing project

      I think you should combine this important statement with the one at the end of this section: "Since hard drives slow down as they fill up, you should also be adding a minimum of 20% to the amount of storage needed." to raise awareness of the need for extra storage for render, etc. files.

    10. New terminology Camera Archives

      Do you want to add learning objectives to the top here?

    5. Use DLT (Digital Linear Tape) and rewind the tape - don't leave it in the middle somewhere, to be exposed to dust, dampness, smoke, etc.

      I'd recommend looking into "LTO" tape vs. DLT.... Richard Lackey quotes: Archive The best solution for long term archival of data are LTO tapes. With an expected lifetime of over 20 years LTO will outlast and outperform any hard drive or solid state storage technology. I discuss LTO in more detail in the disaster recovery section.

    11. NVIDIA, AMD Radion, BlackMagic Design and Lenovo

      I suggest proposing only the names " Nvidia" and "AMD" as companies that make graphic cards. Possibly add "Intel".

      I would suggest to remove "Radion" (I believe you are referencing the "Radeon" line of cards by AMD.

      Also BlackMagic Design does not produce, I believe, graphic cards.

      Lenovo seems to but I would also remove as I have never heard of these used in video editing.
