Abstract Softvideo is a term applied by the author to video works which treat the computer as the means of production, distribution and consumption of video works. In these contexts video develops novel affordances or possibilities that problematize traditional uses and understandings of video as time based media. In this essay, which consists of a printed essay and an accompanying interactive academic QuickTime project, a critical and reflective analysis of a series of softvideo templates - the 'rhizome templates' - is undertaken. These templates are publicly available and allow video bloggers and others to experiment with softvideo forms. The essay documents the use of the templates and situates them within a critical view of traditional video practice from the point of view of softvideo and video editing as a rhizomatic practice.
