Wikipedia Movie Making Manual

I posted Wikipedia links a few weeks ago for Final Cut Pro and just found the Wikipedia Movie Making Manual.

Here is the Wikipedia definition of editing:

"Editing is the process of choosing which picture and sounds will go into the finished film. Initially this includes picking what is good and what is bad, removing the poor material and putting it into script order. Later it also includes the creation and control of moments that may or may not have been intended during the shoot (see below)."
