Non-linear editing systems for video productions

Eine Grafik, die verschiedene Stränge und Möglichkeiten diese zu verbinden, aufweist.

For a non-lin­ear edit­ing the footage is dig­i­tal­ized and saved on hard disc. Now it is worked on with a soft­ware. After edit­ing it is pos­si­ble to record it on DVD and Blu-ray, or to con­vert it to dif­fer­ent file for­mats.

The main advan­tage of non-lin­ear edit­ing is that there are basi­cally unlim­ited pos­si­bil­i­ties to process and manip­u­late the footage. How­ever, because of the sheer vol­ume of data, the whole process is time-con­sum­ing and very pow­er­ful com­put­ers with spe­cial­ized hard­ware is required. The speed of the hard disc is also deci­sive: Nor­mal USB2 hard discs are to slow to show the footage in real time.
