I Don’t Care if CSi Can Do It, I Can’t

I've spent years working in edit suites – with some of THE most powerful visual tools at my finger tips. I'm just glad I don't work with clients in that environment today. (99.9% of my editing takes place by myself these days. And no, it has nothing to do with what deodorant I use. )

This kind of stuff in movies and TV shows must make editors, stuck in edit suites with clients, a little crazy [via Adobe's John Nack – original here]:

Client: "How come they can do it on CSi but you can't do it here? Especially with how much money I'm being charged per hour!"

Editor: [Sigh]
