Example text

For the most part, dailies sent and made available over the Internet are standard definition and can have quality ranging from VHS-equivalent to images that exceed DVD. Sometimes called desktop dailies because a computer is usually used as the receive station, these dailies can be stored on a computer hard drive and played through a computer monitor, laptop, or television set if the computer is equipped with a graphics card with video out. There are a number of set-top devices that can be used to connect to a DSL or a higher-bandwidth Internet line to serve as the receive or send station for digitally delivered dailies.

Sometimes working with the cinematographer and sometimes directing his or her own photographic unit, the visual effects supervisor directs the creation of photographic foreground or background elements that will then be combined in post production digital compositing with other live action or computer-generated elements. The visual effects supervisor must also coordinate with the editorial team so that the shots to be created are of the right length and character to intercut with existing footage.

Unlike video, where the first edit must be re-recorded to a new tape, and each successive edit re-recorded onto this new tape in a linear fashion, a cut could be made in any part of a scene or take. These early nonlinear devices were not digital, but rather electronic, using multiple copies on analog videotape or laser disc, which allowed for the illusion of random access, as the first cut was played from one tape or laser disc, the next from another, and so on. If a change needed to be made, the device would just play it another way.
