Nothing new. I was in the VFX world for a while and moved over to editorial because VFX was fucked. Take a look at the documentary "Life After Pi", same story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lcB9u-9mVE
Glad to see some media composer coverage here. Use it all day every day and can say that UI isn't one of the big issues. I would say it is a superior editing program to anything else out there but it is the biggest pain to do graphics in. Things like not having a way to default fixed keyframes and resizing an animate will deter a lot of users.
If you're making a post for "all video editors" I would assume it to be platform agnostic as not all video editors use Premiere. This really should be "5 tips for adobe editors".
Color is a super difficult thing. Even keeping color fidelity throughout your encodes is a tedious process. Then factor into it that they are likely making one deliverable file for upload. TVs and computer monitors tend to default to different color spaces (a lot of computers are at P3 while TVs tend to be rec 709) so they are not covering all their bases. Then lets say for example you take a still and put it into your news story like you did above, that still is likely sRGB which puts it into another color space making that representation even further from the correct setting. So for example the stills in the story above are likely a sRGB still of footage graded for a rec 709 displayed that you are seeing on a computer monitor that is P3.
I would note that she is not "[managing] to adapt some of the rarest lenses in the world to modern DSLRs", she's using a mirrorless. Thats a big deal when adapting lenses because it limits the minimum flange distance you can use.
Wow, that before they were famous video has the extended death scene of Johnny Depp from Nightmare on Elm St. where he comes back out of the bed all bloody. Ive never actually seen that before.
