If you use Movable Type to manage content other than a traditional weblog, or if your weblog entries contain specific types of structured data, chances are you've wished for the ability to change the labels of the fields on the entry editing screen, or to make one of them into a menu or checkbox, or to add more fields. RightFields is copyright 2002-2007 Kevin Shay, and may not be redistributed without permission of the author. Please use the support forums for all support requests, bug reports, feature requests, questions, and comments regarding this plugin. To configure the fields for a given weblog, you need to have Blog Administrator permission for that weblog.
There are two ways to get to the RightFields configuration screens from within Movable Type. When RightFields is installed and you're creating or editing an entry in a weblog for which you are a Blog Administrator, at the bottom of the page, below the standard Customize the display of this page link, you'll see links to the RightFields settings.
In addition to configuring settings for a specific weblog, you can configure the Default Settings for Standard Fields, Extra Fields, or Template Tags for the whole system. If you have defined Default Settings of a given type, and you try to configure settings of that type for a specific weblog, you run the risk of losing any data that was already stored with the Default Settings in place. Note that you can override the different types of settings separately; that is, you could have weblog-specific Standard Field customizations for a weblog, but use the Default Settings for Extra Fields to apply a set of extra fields to the same weblog.
If you have weblog-specific settings defined for a given weblog and wish to use the Default Settings for that weblog instead, simply delete the weblog's settings. To delete the RightFields settings for a particular weblog, or the Default Settings, select the weblog or Default Settings from the menu of weblogs and click the Delete Settings button. RightFields will display a confirmation screen with a checkbox for each type of settings currently defined for the weblog (or Default Settings). Note that deleting Extra Fields settings will not immediately delete or alter data store in extra fields for existing entries. The Standard Fields tab for a particular weblog lists the five standard Movable Type entry fields: Title, Entry Body, Extended Entry, Excerpt, and Keywords.
The Label field lets you set the text that will be displayed above the field on the entry editing screen.
The Extra Fields tab for a particular weblog lets you define additional fields that will appear when creating or editing an entry in the weblog. Before you define the fields and their settings, you need to specify how you want RightFields to store the data entered into the extra fields. By default, the PluginData option is selected, meaning that RightFields will store the data in MT's own database. If you select the Custom SQL database table option, you'll need to have created a separate table in the database, with the table and its columns named as described below. While the PluginData method is easier to get running, the way the data is stored makes it less flexible. The field listing under Extra Entry Fields works somewhat differently depending on which data storage method you've selected. The Sort column lets you set the order in which the extra fields will appear on the entry editing screen. The individual types and their settings are described in detail below in the Field Types section. When you select the PluginData storage method, RightFields will display three new fields under Extra Entry Fields.
Three new fields will always appear at the end of the list, so to define more than three, simply enter them three at a time and save your changes to get three more. The name of a field (as opposed to its label) is used internally by RightFields in storing the settings and data, and it's what you'll pass to template tags to display the field.
Once you've entered a field name and saved the settings, you won't be able to edit the name unless you click the lock icon in the Field column header. None of these restrictions apply to field labels, which can contain any characters you want and can be changed at any point with no problem. To delete a field, simply click the lock icon to unlock the field names, then delete the field's name and click Save Changes. To have RightFields store the data entered into extra fields in an SQL table, you have to create the table in your MT database, and the table and its columns must be named properly, as follows. You cannot choose a name that will cause your table name to conflict with one of MT's existing tables. Enter the name of the table, minus the mt_ prefix (in the above example, you'd enter restaurant) and click Update. If you alter the table definition in the database, when you return to RightFields, the field listing should reflect the changes. Initially, the label for each field will be the same as the column name (without the prefix). Since the list of fields is based on the columns in the database table, you can't delete a field from the list.
If you have RightFields data stored in PluginData but would like to convert it to SQL, first create one or more SQL tables according to the format described above.
Once your tables are defined, click Convert extra fields from PluginData to SQL storage on the initial RightFields menu. RightFields will identify any weblogs in your installation that have extra fields set up to be stored in PluginData.
If one of your SQL tables is not defined properly, meaning it does not have columns that correspond to all the extra fields, RightFields will report which columns are missing. Above the list of Standard or Extra fields for a given weblog is a set of radio buttons that lets you turn RightFields on or off for the weblog, or turn it on for entries after a certain date and time.
If you disable standard field customization or extra fields for a given weblog, the field settings will be retained, but the field customization or extra fields will not appear on the entry editing screen for that weblog. The Enabled for entries after option lets you enter a timestamp in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss. This is useful in cases where a weblog contains existing entries that use the standard entry fields, but you want to have a customized set of fields for future entries in the same weblog. Show formatting and resizing buttons: Controls whether MT's buttons for inserting HTML formatting into the field and changing the height of the field will be displayed.
Apply text filters when published: Controls whether the text filters applicable to an entry, based on the entry's settings or weblog's default settings, will be applied when the field is displayed on a published page. If you customize the standard Entry Body or Extended Entry field as a Text area (which they are, by default), the text formatting buttons for the field will be retained. A Date field is a calendar date, which the user enters by selecting the year, month, day of the month, and (optionally) time of day from dropdown menus.
The user can also enter the date by clicking on a calendar icon and clicking on a date in a JavaScript-based popup calendar. What is actually stored in the database is a timestamp string in the standard format used by MT: YYYYMMDDhhmmss. A date field can be displayed in any desired format on a publishing template by using the MTFormatDate tag.
Date order: The order in which the year, month, and day menus will appear on the entry editing screen. Include time: Controls whether hour, minute, and second menus will appear on the entry editing screen.
Show every __ minutes in menu: If the time is included and a menu of minutes is displayed, lets you limit which minute options display in the menu. If a filename is stored in the field when an existing entry is edited, RightFields will display the existing filename and a link to the file (relative to the URL path specified in the settings). If a file is uploaded and a filename is also entered into the field, that filename will be used.
Upload path: An absolute path to the location on your server where you want uploaded files to be stored. URL path: The path relative to your site's web root, or a full URL and path, that will allow a web browser to display the uploded file.
Keep means the filename will not be altered at all, except that a number will be appended if the file already exists and the Uploads overwrite existing files setting is not enabled. Dirify means the existing filename will be used, but "dirified": punctuation will be removed, spaces converted to underscores, and the name will be lowercased. Uploads overwrite existing files: If this option is checked, when an uploaded file (named according to the Filenames setting described above) already exists on the server, the existing file will be overwritten with the new file. A Radio buttons field is a set of radio buttons in which the user can click on a single item. A Linked entry field is a dropdown menu of entries in a weblog (either a different weblog or the same weblog where the field is defined) from which the user can select an entry. Weblog: Lets you choose which weblog's entries will appear in the menu on the entry editing screen. Category IDs: If you want to restrict which entries will appear in the menu, you can enter one or more IDs of categories from the linked weblog in this field. To set default values that will appear in any standard or extra field when a user creates a new entry in a given weblog, use the Defaults tab. If you're using the Keywords field to store an event venue, or using a generically named database column to store a hat size, it's confusing to have to use and to display these elements on your publishing templates. Also, you can't use this feature for Linked entry type fields, because the tag used to display them, MTLinkedEntry, is a container tag, and, well, it just didn't work out.
When you click on the Template Tags tab for a particular weblog, you'll see a listing with three blank fields for creating new template tags. The menu of fields shows the labels and (in parentheses) field names of the standard entry fields and any extra fields you've defined.
If you've customized the standard fields or have important information stored in extra fields, the normal MT entry listing, which normally shows each entry's title and (in Expanded mode) excerpt, may not display the data you need to tell your entries apart or the fields you want to be able to see at a glance for multiple entries. To customize the listing for either Compact Display or Expanded Display mode, select the corresponding Customize radio button. These tags allow you to display the extra fields you've defined, and some additional information for particular types of fields. For extra fields stored in a SQL table, use the name of the database column, minus the datasource_ prefix—the same way the field name is displayed on the Extra Fields configuration screen.


For extra fields stored in PluginData, use the field name (not the label) as you've defined it on the Extra Fields configuration screen. This container tag displays its contents if two conditions are met: A) you've defined extra fields for this weblog, and B) there is data entered in at least one of the extra fields for the current entry.
This container tag prints its contents if there is data entered in the specified extra field for the current entry. This container tag loops through all the extra fields that have been defined for this weblog, printing its contents once for each field. This tag displays the value of the specified extra field—that is, it displays whatever data you've entered into the field for the current entry. Given the name of a field defined as a File type, this tag displays the text specified in the field's URL path configuration setting. The tag always displays the path without a trailing slash, so you can include a slash between the path and the filename on a template without worrying about which way it was entered in the configuration. Given the name of a field defined as a Linked entry type, if a linked entry was selected for the entry currently being displayed, this container tag loads the linked entry. In the RightFields configuration for Events, you define the Keywords field to be a Linked entry from Venues. If the field in question is an Extra field, you must be using SQL data storage in order to use this tag.
This container tag assumes that its contents are a timestamp in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss, the format used by RightFields to store Date type fields. Fixed bug where RightFields settings could get deleted when deleting an entry with extra fields containing no data (Shisei, Ian Fenn). Names of uploaded files now have field name appended (to avoid conflicts if there are multiple file fields).
Added option to disable customization for both standard and extra fields for a given weblog.
Added option to apply customization only to entries after a certain timestamp for both standard and extra fields for a certain weblog. Text displayed on configuration screens is now wrapped in MT_TRANS tags for potential internationalization. Field names of extra fields (when storing in PluginData) are now validated to contain only letters, numbers, and underscores, and prevent duplicate names.

Whether you're compiling and editing your home videos, creating professional short films or editing high quality photos It's very important to consider the video editing software specs when buying a new computer for editing or customizing and upgrading your old one. Digital video footage takes up a lot of file storage space, and you'll need somewhere to put it. VGA (an analog signal, found on the older CRT type monitors) and DVI (a digital signal used for modern LCD type flat screen monitors).
Be sure to look very carefully at the inputs and video capture ports on any video editing computer you plan to buy.
Most videographers eventually find themselves doing a lot of soundtrack manipulation and basic audio engineering and editing. All Rights Reserved.The information on this site is provided for informational and educational purposes only.
For serious movie making, you're going to need to step it up a notch.Especially with 4K video on the horizon, you need a computer that can handle and process all that gobs of information. The most important things to consider when buying a computer for video editing is the processing power, storage space and screen size.Below are a few solid choices to get you started in your search for a video editing computer. Mac computers are a standard in the video production world, so you can't go wrong with a Mac. Of course the Mac Pro has all the necessary ports to hook up your gear including 4 USB ports, 6 thunderbolt ports, 2 ethernet ports and an HDMI port. I am a professional filmmaker, and I applaud this site for detailing the ABC's of documentary filmmaking.
MotoVlog: My Motovlog helmet camera mic set-up, editing software, other cameras and my video editing computer specs. If you are like many of the video professionals I have worked with in the last few months you have one main thing in common.
But with all the PC Hardware choices available what is the best custom configuration for a Video Editing PC?
Here we will take a look at the hardware options available along with the best configuration possible to create a professional Video Editing Workstation.
To create a High End Video Editing Computer you need to make sure you have the best parts for the heart of the system.
This is because it out performs the Intel Core 2 Duo and Dual Core CPUs as well as the AMD AM2 and Phenom II processors. The memory in your Video Editing PC should be DDR3 because it is designed to run with the Intel Core i7 CPUs, and because it offers the fastest Bus speeds available for RAM. For the motherboard you should look into a full size ATX board that will offer you plenty of features and configuration options to create your professional Video Editing workstation. The two other most important considerations in designing a Video Editing System are the video card, and capture card because these handle all the primary video functions in your system and work in conjunction with your software to provide maximum performance. Because of this I would recommend going with the GeForce GTX295 video card which comes equipped with 1792mb of video memory. There are many good capture cards out there but my preference is for the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Media Center because of its ability to capture dual ATSC video input.
Aside from the main PC hardware considerations we have listed above there are a few other things to consider when custom building a Professional Video Editing PC.
Following these considerations will help you design a Professional High End Video Editing PC that is capable of any project you can imagine.
With high performance hardware that offers power and speed you can Custom Build the perfect system for Video Editing, Video Capture, Post Processing and Video Encoding. Great explanation and very informative for people that are savvy about custom PC’s and even for people who don’t have much experience in computer hardware, they will learn a ton from this. I believe a really important factor that you didn’t mention is a good computer case with a good air flow, and big fans at a good rpm speed, that makes a big difference when you are talking about speed, performance, and power, it will dramatically improve or decrease the performance of the system. I know a lot of people that will go with water cooling system inside their PC, but that is a personal choice, other than that this is a excellent source of information for video editing PC performance and vary detailed.
Everything mentioned in this article its great information, what it got my attention in this article is the Intel’s processor i7, if you are going for professional video editing make sure you have best products, the i7 is perfect for this project because is the best for encoding since you going to be working continuously doing videos and encoding you need a processor that deliver a really fast and best performance encoding of this days. If a big part of your projects are going to be HD movies or blu rays, you are going to be consuming a huge space in your hard drive disk; the range of a blu ray project can be from 6 GB to 32 GB per project.
Another thing that you have to look when you are going to do video editing is to have a good software or thinking which software you are going to use in order to do your projects. It’s likely that you will be building a fast 64 bit workstation so it makes sense to use 64 bit NLE SW. I’m also looking into purchasing two GPU’s as this can be a bottle neck and because there are NLE SW’s that are setup to support two monitors. You can change the label and input type of the standard entry fields, and create extra fields.
Because of this, RightFields will display a warning and require you to explicitly override the Default Settings.
Click on this to "de-customize" the field: MT will once again display the standard field label and text field on the entry editing screen.
The Settings column lets you control various options for how the field will look and behave, depending on what field type you choose. This means that the MTLinkingEntries tag, and certain other features planned for future versions of RightFields, will only work if SQL data storage is used. Once you've saved the settings, the buttons under Data Storage for Extra Fields will be disabled, and a lock icon will appear.
Changing these settings can result in the data stored in extra fields being lost, so this is a precaution to help prevent unintentional changes.
The name should be fairly short, and cannot contain any spaces or any punctuation other than underscores. Changing a field name can result in the data stored in extra fields being lost, so this is a precaution to help prevent unintentional changes.
You want to store custom data about each restaurant such as its location, cuisine, average meal price, and a numeric rating.
If you're using a tool like phpMyAdmin to define your table, it may default all the columns to "not null." This will prevent the data you enter in your extra fields from getting saved unless you fill in every one of the fields. For example, you might define a generic table called mt_extra with columns called extra_col1, extra_col2, etc., and use it to store restaurant review data for one weblog and album review data for another weblog. When you select the Custom SQL database table option under Data Storage for Extra Fields, a SQL table field will appear. If the table is defined properly, RightFields will display field settings for each column in the table (minus the _id column). If you want a given field not to appear on the entry editing screen, click the Ignore link beneath its name. The datasource table for a given weblog must contain a column corresponding to each extra field for the weblog. You do not have to select a weblog first; this feature lets you convert multiple weblogs in one step.
Check the boxes next to the blogs you wish to convert, and enter the table name(s), without the mt_ prefix (linkdata in the above example).
No data will be converted for any selected weblog, even one without errors, until all errors are corrected.
However, RightFields does not currently add formatting buttons to other fields you configure as Text areas. If you convert an existing field to a checkbox, any value other than 0 in that field for an existing entry will cause the box to be checked when you edit the entry. If the user has Upload File permission for the weblog being edited, a file upload field will be displayed along with the field.


If the field is left blank, the uploaded file will be named according to the Filename setting, described below. For all options except Keep, the name of the field, preceded by an underscore, will be inserted into the filename; this allows you to have multiple File type fields without naming conflicts.
Since the name of an uploaded file can be very long, or irrelevant, or contain punctuation characters, this option is not recommended unless you're sure your users know what they're doing.
The key will be stored in the database, but the value will be displayed to the user on the entry screen. Using this feature lets you change the displayed values with impunity without worrying about existing entries. Information from the linked entry can be displayed on a publishing template using the MTLinkedEntry tag.
If category IDs are entered here, only entries assigned to these categories will appear in the menu of entries to link to. You'll see a screen that resembles the entry editing form itself, where you can type in or select (depending on the field type) a default value for each field. This means that the text will appear in the field when the user creates an entry, but will disappear as soon as the user clicks in the field. The template tags are defined "on the fly" in such a way that they will only work with statically built templates. Three blanks will always be displayed, so to add more than three, add them three at a time. It's probably best to follow MT's tag naming convention, which is to use what we geeks somehow find it reasonable to call UpperCamelCase. To control what appears in the entry listing for a given weblog, click the Entry Listing tab. If you pass this attribute, the tag will display its contents only if one of the named fields contains something for the current entry.
If this is not passed, the tag will check for linking entries from all weblogs in the system.
Within this tag, you can use any entry-related tags as if you were in an MTEntries container. You can format the date by passing the same format and language attributes to MTFormatDate that you would pass to MTEntryDate or any other MT date tag.
You may not get the full advertised performance from your video editing software and you will be disappointed.
Do your homework and make sure that you get a computer that has more than enough power to run your editing programs. If you plan on making videos and DVDs, you'll want a good sound card, speakers and headphones for your computer. A unique feature is the a€?service modea€? which allows the monitor to tilt back and lay flat for easy access to the computer internal components. You tend to pay more for less with laptops and the smaller screen size is not ideal for the detail work involved in video editing.
I am a beginner with an idea, and the info and articles on your website are easy to understand and answer many questions I have. You need a Professional quality Video Editing System that will deliver power, and performance.
It also allows you to take advantage of the triple-channel memory controller function on the Core i7 processors. Recommended brands include Intel, ASUS, and Gigabyte because of the reliability and performance they offer to users. This means any Video Editing software you use that works in tandem with your video card will operate at peak performance. Let’s recap below and list any additional hardware that is ideal for high end video performance in a video editing system.
If you follow the considerations I have mentioned and work with good brand name PC hardware you will have a Professional Video Editing System that helps you maximize your workflow and creativity. That also means, you could easily fill up 1 TB hard drive disk on a few projects only, when I first started collecting movies I tough 1 TB was going to be more than enough, but after a month of collecting movies I realized that my hard drive disk was already full and I was forced to buy another one, and not only that, I also stopped doing my projects because I had no space to do it and also had to wait until I had the money to buy one.
That will improve the performance, the quality, and the speed of the projects to get the job done quick.
Perfect to do this kind of project, first thing is very fast, stable, it has 4 cores and 8 treads very good to run multiple applications and soft-wares that requires a good speed processor, also the benchmarks don’t lie and the results are pretty impressive. It’s a good idea to configure your PC with a simple RAID0 (Perhaps two 1TB drives) for the working files. Some of your SW packages require the video card or GPU (Video Processor Unit) to operate with specific hardware codecs for optimal or efficient operation. If you have multiple weblogs with different types of content, you can define a separate set of fields for each weblog.
Select a weblog and click the Configure button to go to the RightFields settings for the weblog. This means that if you accidentally delete your settings, you can simply re-define the settings before editing any entries and the data should still be there.
SQL data storage is the preferred method, and if you have the technical knowledge and access to create a table in your database, you should use this option, especially if you're going to be working with a large amount of data. The Sort, Label, Type, and Settings columns work the same way for both data storage methods. A future version of RightFields will include data validation so you can make certain fields required; for now, they all have to allow blank values. The settings for the field will disappear (but RightFields will save them) and the link will change to Use. For example, if you have PluginData extra fields called link1, link2, and link3, and your table is called mt_linkdata, it must have the columns linkdata_id, linkdata_link1, linkdata_link2, and linkdata_link3.
To disable or selectively enable standard field customization or extra fields for a given weblog, select the appropriate radio button and click Save Changes. When you edit an entry with an Authored On timestamp earlier than or equal to the specified timestamp, the field customization or extra fields will not appear.
Information about entries that are linked to a given entry can be displayed with the MTLinkingEntries tag. You can use this feature to display instructions about what should be entered in the field. You may also want to start your tag names with Entry, since they will display entry-related information.
Quickly and easily open the screen via two latches and add extra disk drives, RAM or update the video card. The Core i7 also excels at multimedia applications, which means you can Edit Video faster with a chip that designed to do just that.
My suggestion is, if you are going to do this on a pro side, you must go between 5 and 10 TB at least.
The advantage that you could get out of this processor is to over clock it, if you get the i7-920 and you set the multipliers well you will run this processor much faster than one of the most expensive processors in the market today: Core i7-965 Extreme Edition. If you do this you will need to consider the wattage capability of the power supply because these midrange GPU’s are PWR Hungry.
If, after that period, you wish to continue to use it, you are expected to pay a shareware fee of $15 for personal use, $30 for education or not-for-profit use, or $50 for commercial use, on a single installation of Movable Type. The table can, however, have additional columns that do not correspond to any of the extra fields. Remember that the custom tags will only work on templates for the particular weblog you're configuring. Otherwise, the bonus with the iMac is that the computer and monitor are all in one so you don't have to pay extra for a monitor. Just do everything else the same, the specs, the same hardware and any detail that you found in this article. You always want to get the most of what you have so for video editing, don’t forget to over clock it. It’s a good idea to use fast RAM and all RAM should have the same date code to avoid the slight change of latency which are the main concern of a high-end NLE system. I will give priority to support requests from paid users on the forums, but paying the fee does not entitle you to support. The more display space the better!To do this however you'll need a powerful dual-output video card!
Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer or Adobe Premiere Pro are all excellent video editing software options to use with a Mac. For maximum power and performance, choose the higher-end model with the Intel Xeon processor and 16 GB of RAM. In reading NLE SW reviews it is apparent that many of the problems are related to limited HW.
A single 7200 sata drive may do the job for small HD (no affects) jobs but not for the future cool affects for your larger HD creation.
Some SW designers try to get around this by developing their suites to view the work-space timeline in low resolution while in-work and then the final rendering will output the full HD. My experience with these leading edge NLE SW is that you always buy an in-work product and there is always patches to correct problems down the road. If the fans are running then the air is being circulating within the box (assuming no isolated areas.
Get a full aluminum chassis with no plastic walls because those neat plastic windows don’t conduct heat nearly as well as aluminum.
