(2) For example, the edit out point is 57 seconds.
Roll the tape to
62 seconds. Enter the new edit in point at 57.05 seconds.
b. The ASSEMBLE mode is the easiest method but it has disadvantages.
(1) The control track must match evenly at each new edit point,
otherwise a glitch may be seen in your finished product.
(2) It is not possible to correct a bad edit in the middle of two
scenes using the assemble mode.
7. INSERT mode.
The INSERT mode, also referred to as insert editing,
consists of inserting new material (audio 1 or 2, video, or both) into a
particular section or sections of a prerecorded video tape.
a. One technical difference between INSERT and ASSEMBLE mode is that
when editing in the INSERT mode, no new control track is recorded on the
slave tape. However, this control track must be laid down (recorded) prior
to the editing process. If a 10-minute production is to be edited in the
INSERT mode, at least 10 minutes of a signal with burst (see control track
for definition of burst), must be recorded on the slave tape. Then, as each
new edit is made, often out of sequence, the previously recorded control
track is kept intact.
b. Look at Figures 1-3 and 1-4. In the edited sequence of Figure 1-3,
you decide to replace scene 3 with a close-up (CU) of the face. Notice that
in Figure 1-4, the CU now occupies the same location of the previous scene
without disrupting the control track.
In order to insert or replace a
scene, the new scene must be the same length as the one to be replaced.
c. Figure 1-3 is the same sequence of shots we saw in Figure 1-2 in the
assemble mode, but using the INSERT mode you can replace any shot (fig 1-4).
(1) For example, you could insert a close-up of the leader's head and
shoulders IF he had important dialogue.
(2) Or, you could insert a larger close-up of the map and hand (if
the cameraman gave you several choices).
Remember, the new scene must be
exactly the same length as the one to be replaced.
NOTE: Each time a scene is replaced with another, the
new scene will erase a few frames from the scenes
closer to its edit in and out points.
