Hi, my name is Jared Drake and I'm going to talk to you about digital video editing. Digital video editing is obviously editing digital video. What that means is you are editing in a computer, in a non-linear system. In old film days what they used to do is they would edit the film on a flatbed which is basically flat table with a feed reel and a take up reel, you put your film down, you run it through, when you want to insert a scene of a piece of film, you cut the film, pull strip the film out of your editing bin, drop it in, tape it together, keep running it across. That was linear editing. Digital video editing on the computer is non-linear editing and you, what that means is you can jump from moment to moment, frame to frame in less than a second, you can insert a shot, shorten the shot then you can lengthen it again, then you can shorten it again, all within seconds.
