Streamlined editing process used for latest Jim Carrey vehicle

‘Bruce Almighty,’ the latest Jim Carrey comedy feature co-starring Jennifer Aniston and Morgan Freeman, was cut in Hollywood by Scott Hill on a Lightworks' Touch network.
Two Lightworks Touch systems, the latest iteration of the popular Lightworks NLE introduced last year, were connected via a fibre channel network with two RAID protected external disc arrays with 1.5 TB of storage, giving Hill and his assistants instant access to shared material. As Lightworks Touch uses off-the-shelf networking components, substantial cost savings are achieved when compared with other proprietary shared storage solutions.
While the networked solution considerably streamlined the editing process, Hill also had the advantage of the Touch's updated user interface and a redesigned Lightworks console. The new tool, which augments the familiar flat-bed style control with a jog-wheel, was to prove particularly useful for audio scrubbing.
Hill said: “Lightworks Touch is amazingly fast. It’s a designed-for-purpose editing machine that helps keep you focused throughout the entire process.”
The speed of throughput on the editing of ‘Bruce Almighty’ was also helped considerably by the real-time keying functions on the Lightworks Touch. With more than 250 chroma-keyed shots in the movie, substantial savings on rendering times were achieved.
