factfile3.3 Making a rough cut


A video editor's first task is to preview all the raw footage and decide what is useful or not. RoughcutThis is called "grading the rushes" because shots are usually ranked according to wide categories like Excellent, Acceptable and Unacceptable.

Through this process the editor is able to become very familiar with the footage and produce a rough cut of the video for the client or the director. This is needed to obtain their initial approval and in case any major changes need to be made before the final cut is edited.
