A few years ago I took a freelance night shift as an assistant editor at production company in North Hollywood. It was a short gig, but overall it was a good learning experience. I utilized about 4 Avids at a time, outputting to DVCAM, BetaSP and Digitbeta. Every once in a while I would freak out because I had a small question about their specific configuration and it was 12 AM. Who wants to get a call from the new guy at 12 AM? Nobody.¬†Going from office to office over the past couple years, it takes a while to get used to everyone’s specific setup. One of the places I work at the most has a great machine room full of great HD equipment. It took me a while to remember tasks like resetting timecode on the Sony HDCAM deck though.
