Midweek Motivation: Sapphire Artist Timothy Schultz, Offline Editor

Timothy Schultz interview

Timothy Schultz is an Avid editor that has worked on numerous shows including the Academy Awards, Beat Shazam, Deal or No Deal, the Emmys, and more. Boris FX chatted with him about how he got started, what keeps him motivated, his favorite projects, go-to plug-ins and more.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

What’s your go-to Boris FX plug-in (Continuum, Sapphire, Mocha Pro) and effect/feature and why? Tracking with Mocha Pro changed how I worked, how I tackled effects, and how fast I could give a client a better product. It was an absolute game changer for me. Now I have the ability to use it for masking plugins inside of Sapphire and I keep finding new ways to make cool new looks for footage. The ability to drag a glint on a shot, tweak it to look how I want, jump into Mocha right there from within the plugin to mask off a person in the foreground, and show that to a client quickly has been fantastic.
