Test 3
Show Answers:

  1. assemble editing
    In linear editing, adding shots on videotape in consectutive order without first recording a control track on the edit master tape
  2. Capture
    Moving video and audio from the recording media to the hard drive of a computer with a nonlinear editing program. Analog videotape signals must be converted to digital before they can be imported by the computer
  3. Digitize
    Necessary step with analog source material whereby the analog signals are converted to digital signals prior to capture
  4. Edit Controller
    A machine that assists in various linear editing functions, such as marking edit-in and edit-out points, rolling source and record VTRs and integrating effects. It can be a desktop computer with editing software
  5. Edit Decision List
    Consists of edit-in and edit-out points expressed in time code numbers and the nature of transitions between shots
  6. Edit Master
    The videotape or disk that contains the final version of an edited program. Subsequent copies are struck from the edit master
  7. Insert Editing
    Produces highly stable edits for linear editing. Requires the prior laying of a continuous control track by recording black on the edit master tape.
  8. Linear editing system
    Uses videotape as the editing medium. It does not allow random access of shots
  9. Nonlinear editing system
    Allows random access of shots. The video and audio information is stored in digital form on computer disks. Usually has two external monitors, small loudspeakers, and an audio mixer
  10. Off-line editing
    In linear editing it produces the final high quality edit master for broadcast or program duplication. In nonlinear editing the shots listed on the edit decision list are recaptured at a higher resolution
  11. Pulse-count system
    An address code that counts the control track pulses and translates that count into time and frame numbers. It is not frame-accurate.
  12. Rough-cut
    A preliminary edit
  13. SMPTE time code
    A specific address code that marks each video fram with a specific number (Hour, minute, second, and frame)
  14. VR log
    a record of each take on the source media. Also called editing log. When the recording media is videotape, the shot record is also called VTR log
  15. Window Dub
    A dub of the source tapes to a lower-quality tape format with the address code keyed into each frame
  16. Complexity editing
    Building an intensified screen event from carefully selected and juxtaposed shots. Does not have to adhere to the continuity principles.
  17. Continuing Vectors
    Graphic vectors that extend each other or index and motion vectors that point and move in the same direction
  18. Continuity Editing
    Preserving vidual continuity from shot to shot
  19. Converging vectors
    Index and motion vectors that point toward each other
  20. Cutaway
    A shot of an object or event that is periphically connected with the overall event and that is relatively static.
  21. Diverging Vectors
    Index and Motion Vectors that point away from each other
  22. Jogging
    Frame by Frame advancement of a recorded shot sequence, resulting in a jerking motion
  23. Jump Cut
    An image that jumps slightly from one screen position to another during a cut. Also any gross visual discontinuity from shot to shot
  24. Mental Map
    Tells us where things are or are supposed to be in on and off screen space
  25. Vector Line
    An imaginary line created by extending convergening vectors or the direction of a motion vector
  26. big remote
    production outside the studio: sporting events, parades, political gatherings, and trails or government hearings
  27. Electronic field Production
    video production done outside the studio that is usually shot for postproduction (not live)
  28. Electronic News Gathering
    the use of portable camcorders, lights, and sound equipment for the production of mostly unschedules dails news events. Used in live transmissions and immediate postproduction
  29. Field Production
    Production Activities that can take place away from the studio
  30. Remote Survey
    An inspection of the remote location by key production and enginering personnel so that they can plan for the setup and the use of production equipment
  31. Remote Truck
    The vehicle that carries the control room, audio control, video-recording section, video control section, and transmission equipment
  32. Synthetic environment
    Electronically generated settings either through chroma key or computer
  33. Uplink truck
    The vehicle that sends video and audio signals to a satellite
  34. Virtual Reality
    Computer-simulated environment with which the user can interact
  35. angle
    central theme of story
  36. blocking
    carefully worked out positioning, movement and actions by the talent and for all mobile video equipment used in a scene
  37. Camera Rehearsal
    Full rehearsal with cameras and other pieces of production equipment. Often identical to the dress rehearsal
  38. Dry Run
    Wo equipment
  39. fact sheet/rundown sheet
    script format that lists the items to be shown on camera and their main features
  40. multicamera directing
    simultaneous coordination of two or more cameras for instantaneous editing (switching)
  41. News Script
    Fully scripted tect with video information on page left and news copy on page right
  42. Program objective
    desired effect
  43. Shot
    smallest convenient operational unit in video and film, usually the interval between two transitions. In cinmena it may refer to a specific camera set-up
  44. shot sheet
    list of every shot that camera has to get
  45. single camera directing
    Directing a single camera (usually a camcorder) in the studio or field for takes that are recorded seperately for postproduction
  46. single column drama script
    Traditional script format for television plays
  47. Take
    A shot during filming
  48. Time line
    a breakdown of time blocks for various activites on the actual production day, such as crew call, setup, and camera rehearsal
  49. Trim Handles
    Recording additional footage before and after major shots
  50. two-column A/V script
    Traditional script format with video information on page left and audio info on page right
  51. Visualization
    The mental image of a shot
  52. Walk through-camera rehearsal
    A combination of an orientation session for talent and crew and a follow-up rehearsal with full equipment.
