Computer-Assisted Editing: The Crossroads of the Film/Video Interface. Computer-assisted editing represents what is probably the highest-profile "convergence" of film and video technology to date. Despite having won praise for its efficiency, "cleanliness" and speed, it has been resisted by editors, who feel once removed from the cutting-room process. The panelists address the issue of resistance to the new systems, and their advantages and disadvantages. They also outline the retraining process for film-trained editors, the economic impact of electronic editing in post-production, and its application in commercial, documentary and feature work. Participants: Bob Sher, Bill Hogan, Diana Weynand, Yves Langlois, Daniel Arie.
