LOS ANGELES — TouchEdit, a new nonlinear editing app for the iPad will have its first public demonstration at the Los Angeles Post Production Group’s January 9 meeting. The meeting is taking place at the Showbiz Store & Cafe in Los Angeles, where TouchEdit founder/ designer/editor Dan Lebental, ACE, will discuss workflow, the creative process and the future of editing, with TouchEdit being a key example.
TouchEdit is a frame-based editing system for the iPad that gives users two virtual monitors — a source and a record monitor — which are controlled by two corresponding filmstrips.Users control the filmstrips by running their fingers back and forth across them. TouchEdit’s timeline based editor also enables users to interact directly with the video as well as with eight channels of audio.
Lebental has over 20 years of experience as an editor in Hollywood. He’s collaborated with Jon Favreau and has edited such hits such as Elf, Iron Man and Iron Man 2.
In addition, to Lebental’s presentation, master trainer Steve Wright will be presenting a glimpse of his workshop on “Color of Digital Artists.” A senior visual effects artist with over 20 years of production experience, has created digital effects for 70
TV commercials and 70 feature films including Ray, Ali, Traffic, Air Force One and Batman & Robin.
The Showbiz Store & Café is located at 500 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049. To attend the event,
