USING AN EDITING SUITE
Two video editing stations are available in the Film Board office.
The room key is kept at the Hub. Talk to the front desk staff to sign it out. You must have your valid membership card with you in order to sign out the edit room key. You MUST NOT leave the building with the key. Any time you leave the room for more than a few minutes, even if you are still working on project, you must return the key to the Hub. Other members may need to access the room.
Members are are allowed guests in the edit suite but if other members are also trying to use the room the guests may be asked to leave. Please keep a reasonable sound level if other members are using the room.
ACCESSING THE COMPUTERS
Simply click on the ‘film board member‘ account to access a computer.
Adobe Premiere Pro for video editing and Adobe After Effects for special effects. Avid Pro Tools is available for sound editing, but it must be booked online ahead of time by sending an email to the curators (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Editing stations may be booked for a maximum 6 hours per day and a maximum of 12 hours in one week. You can use the facilities more often, on a drop-in basis, subject to availability.
If you are 15 minutes late for your booked time you may forfeit if another member wants to use it.
EDITING SOFTWARE TUTORIALS
Every few months Hart House runs classes covering video editing in Premiere Pro. Check the Hart House Creative Classes page for information. One-on-One classes can be arranged with the curators for a fee that can be discussed (email email@example.com).
EDITING STATION USE POLICIES
Members can bring their own hard drives to save their work. The computers are compatible with USB 2 and USB 3 cables. For the hard drive format, we recommend NTFS or exFAT (exFat also works with Mac computers). The computers at the Film Board currently DO NOT have slots for SD cards.
If you want to save your project to the computer, save to either of the HHFB hard drives (please create a folder for your work). These hard drives are for public use. To prevent them from filling up, curators will frequently delete files older than 6 months. Please remember to back up your data on your own hard drive!
Members who use the computers and/or film and video equipment for unlawful purposes in any way will have their membership immediately suspended and the situation will be passed on to police if necessary.
