In Guatemala, Shogun reverses 29.97PsF pulldown for 8-camera live-switched show via Datavideo HS2800

dji drone drones gary yost inspire uav yost

Thanks to the reverse telecine feature in the Shogun and other Átomos recorders, Staff/HDTV got its wish.

By Allan Tépper | January 27, 2015

Staff/HDTV in Guatemala really wanted to record pure progressive 1080/29.97p for its multi-camera TV shoots. They strongly considered NewTek’s TriCaster lineup, but TriCaster didn’t offer any option with 8 HD-SDI inputs in their desired price range, so instead they chose Datavideo’s HS2800 mobile studio, which starts with 8 HD-SDI inputs and is expandable to 12. The initial problem was that the SE–2800 contained in the HS2800 package only handles interlaced 1080i, but a workflow I previously published solved the problem and allowed Staff/HDTV to have their cake and eat it too. Details ahead.

Easy Flying Logos with AE + C4D Lite (+ Illustrator)

Your Creative Cloud subscription has all the tools needed for this common motion graphics task

By Chris and Trish Meyer | January 22, 2015

One of the most common, bread-and-butter motion graphics jobs you’re going to get is to take your client’s flat, two-dimensional print logo, turn it into a 3D object, and animate it onto the screen for an endless variety of video destinations (trade shows, press events, training videos, web & social media, etc.). This used to mean having to buy and learn a 3D program in addition to After Effects and/or your NLE of choice, rendering it out of one, and bringing it into the other to potentially integrate over additional footage. Now that CINEMA 4D Lite is bundled with After Effects, and there is a direct render path between the two, this task is now a bit easier.
