There’s a new article on CGSociety about the editing in AvP2. Most of it goes way over my head, it’s very technical. They talk about the crew using AJA KONA 3 and Apple Final Cut Pro to edit the movie.

“The Alien vs. Predator 2 editorial team modified their existing workflow to integrate with the pipeline at visual effects studio Hydraulx, setting up an Apple Final Cut Pro editing pipeline for the film that relies heavily on AJA’s KONA 3 card. Shot on 35mm 3-perf film, the setup allows Hydraulx to cut the film at a 1080i resolution, lay down previews to a D5 deck and go out to an HD deck for studio reviews before finishing the film with a 4K Digital Intermediate scan and film output. The pipeline employs five KONA 3 cards: a projection system, an editor system, a visual effects editor system, a utility system and an assistant system.

Interesting to note, they also call AvP2 an “effects-heavy” film.
Thanks to therockbottom65 for the news.

I'm almost certified in Final Cut Pro, I have to take the apple certification test.  Nice software, definitely worth the money.

I only want a teaser, even if it's like the one of jurassic park, you know the type of teaser that don't show a frame of the movie, but it's cool.

Is anyone else getting ticked off with the lack of news we're getting about this movie?

Tell me about it. This article is kinda like a "f**k you" since this sort of thing isn't what fans want to know about.
