History Early films byEdison(whose company invented a motion camera and projector) and others were short films that were one long, static, locked-down shot. Motion in the shot was all that was necessary to amuse an audience, so the first films simply showed activity such as traffic moving on a city street.There was no story and no editing.In 1899, Edison hiredEdwin Stanton Porterand soon put him in charge of his New York motion picture studio.Porter is generally thought to be the first American filmmaker who experimented with film editing. Porter worked on a number of minor films before makingLife of an American Firemanin 1903.The Great Train Robbery

Non Linear EditingThe first truly non-linear editor, theCMX 600, was introduced in 1971 byCMX Systems, a joint venture betweenCBSandMemorex.It recorded & played back black-and-white analog video recorded in "skip-field" mode on modifieddisk packdrives the size of washing machines. These were commonly used to store about half an hour of data digitally on mainframe computers of the time. The 600 had a console with 2 monitors built in. The right monitor, which played the preview video, was used by the editor to make cuts and edit decisions using alight pen. The editor selected from options superimposed as text over the preview video. The left monitor was used to display the edited video.
