If you own a pair of scissors does that make you a barber?
I’ve had two customers request the “raw footage”. One of them had the $99 Pinnacle. Another requested an “editable DVD”, whatever that is. How much luck would they have had a few years ago asking a photographer for the negatives? I said no, because poor editing on their part can make my work look bad, and if they do poor editing, of course they’ll give me credit that. They don’t have color correction, they tend to over-use transition effects in the wrong places and the titles come out of a box. I justify it by referring to the known past policy of film photographers.
