[Walter Soyka] "[Gerald Baria] "At the end of the day, editing is just cutting and splicing stuff together. As hard as a lot of you make it seem, that's just what it is... A cut is just a cut. A graphics artists job is much more taxing/demanding. An animator, even more!"

Gerald, was this piece of reductio ad absurdum supposed to be tongue-in-cheek?

If an editor just cuts and splices stuff together, then a graphics artist just rearranges elements in 2D space, and an animator just makes stuff move. It's all just clicking buttons on a computer, right?

All these disciplines require a mix of creative and technical thinking, and they all require a lot of skill and thought to do well. I say this as an editor who has transitioned into design and animation."

Tall words, huh?

Gerald, maybe you ought to point people to some of your stuff so we can all see just how easy editing is.
