codecs? I know guys with emmy's, who been cutting for 30 years and don't know a thing about codecs, nor do they care. That has nothing to do with editing. Though it is usefull to be well versed, but encoding something can be learned quickly where being a quality editor happeneds over time.

Best way to find someone is word of mouth. Ask around in your area and see who has worked with certain editors. Most pros have a decent reel so they really aren't helpfull. But it also depends on what your needs are. are they working with clients in the room? on their own? or even off site? and what kind of work, broadcast? corporate? long form? spots? everyone has different experiances and may be better at certain things.

Good luck
