Hey there and welcome back to the Video Editor’s Digest! In this edition we cover post production at Netflix, a new feature in Premiere, 2D vs. 3D animation & more.

In case you’re new around here, in the Video Editor’s Digest you get the lowdown on some cool happenings from around the internet on things related to video editing, video production, or just being a creative professional. It also gives me a chance to update you about new pieces on the EVF website and YouTube channel and tell you any freelance, work, or life stories I may have.

If you have a resource of your own or one you stumble across that you want to share in a future Video Editor’s Digest, you can submit it here.

Alright, let’s get into it!

What’s New Around EVF

Well, my freelance moratorium has lasted through August and now halfway into September. I have a feeling it’s going to last at least another few weeks. Since becoming a parent I’ve found that I’m home wayyy more than I ever have been before, I do less “things”, but somehow I’m busier than ever. I thought finding time was difficult before. I had no idea… Fingers crossed I’ll find a few moments to chip away at the new Avid Media Composer Resources page this week. Just trying to make it not feel like “work” since EVF is supposed to be fun for me — I hope you can understand and relate.

Thanks for reading. I hope you’re doing well and have a fantastic week. See you for a new Video Editor’s Digest next week!
