Offline editing

In Movie and Film

Offline editing is part of the post-production process (filmmaking and television production) in which raw footage is copied and the copy only is then edited. By doing so you do not affect the camera original film stock or video tape.

The term offline originated in the computing and telecommunications industries, meaning "not under the direct control of another device" (automation).

The digital revolution has made the offline editing workflow process quicker, nowadays it is achieved on the computer’s hardware and video editing software such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro or Avid.
