    Semantics Question

    Is there a difference between "edit" and "master"?

    Quick answer.....Yess


    Ok so the long answer.
    Edit = you can record over untill the tape will not take it anymore.


    Master = record frm the last thing on the tape and when it is full.....set the record inhibit.

    OK, I guess my mind isn't working...I'm not following, that.


    I am trying to figure out the difference between editing a recording and mastering a recording.

    As I understand it, "editing" is the cutting and laying out the clips for the final reproducible product. What I understand of "mastering" is basically the same.

    The way I see it, editing does mean cutting up the footage, arranging shots, etc. Editing is one part of post-production which is a larger process.

    Mastering can mean different things for different applications, but I take it to mean preparing a physical copy of the program which you use to create copies for distribution. For example, a professional DVD master is a special type of DVD used as a template to print all the DVDs which go to the shops. In the old days a tape master would have been a very high quality video tape which was used to copy to all the other video tapes.

    That's the way I see it anyway.
