Two Frames

How did my blind edit go?

Well, for the most part if I was off, I was only off by two frames.

If I was off by five frames, the cut was just completely wrong and needed to be reconsidered entirely. Which is pretty interesting to me: If the cut doesn't work within two frames either direction of the music cue--which is what I was cutting to while "blind"--the cut probably isn't right.

I don't know if I can make it a hard and fast rule, but it applied more often than not.

Pretty interesting.

...to me, at least.
