Log / Logging

In video (and audio to an extent) applications logging is a process of sifting through raw footage with the intent to capture part of it to be edited and used in production. When logging is done with computer DAW type systems the user generally selects specified regions of tape – usually referred to by time code values – which are accumulated in a capture log. Later the process is capturing or sampling the video/audio material is semi-automated. The computer will operate the tape machine (or whatever type of machine is being used to play the raw recordings), causing it to locate the desired locations on tape (disc, etc.), and then have it play while the material is captured. Often systems will allow various types of notes and annotations to accompany the log, which is then linked to the captured material.
