Online (editing)

Production of the complete, final edit performed at full program quality; the buck stops here! Being higher quality than offline editing, time costs more but the difference has narrowed as the cost of equipment has reduced. Preparation in an offline suite will help save time and money in the online. To produce the finished edit, online has to include a wide range of tools, offer flexibility to try ideas and accommodate late changes, and to work fast to maintain the creative flow and to handle pressured situations.
