MC7 Top Ten List plus detail on new Audio Features

How to use new Audio features

By Steve Hullfish | June 28, 2013

According to the What’s New Document the list of new stuff in MC7 is 25. I think we can whittle that down a bit by eliminating all of the ISIS-related ones (most people are not on ISIS, though those who ARE on it certainly will find them all critically useful), combining a few similar... Read More

How to get THM data into Avid

By Steve Hullfish | June 27, 2013

If you have a Canon 5D and edit on Avid, I have the missing link.

(And if you edit on something else, I still have the missing link… see the bottom of the article.)

So, I’ve had my Canon 5D Mark II for a few years. I’ve used it on a few jobs that I’ve... Read More

NVIDIA K5000 - Next step in GPU power and tech

H-264 hardware encoding enabled and waiting

By Steve Hullfish | June 07, 2013

Before I received the NVIDIA K5000, I read about it and was excited that it had H.264 encoding capability on the board. I tend to do a lot of H.264-encoded deliverables. Unfortunately my excitement was short lived when I found out that while NVIDIA had delivered on their end, nobody else had... Read More

3D HFR and the Immersive Experience

Is Less More, or is More, in fact, More?

By Mark Christiansen | January 04, 2013

 

There seems little doubt that display technology and the way we experience media today won't necessarily look the same throughout the 21st century, any more than Downton Abbey looks like Enter the Void, or a zoetrope resembles Call of Duty. There are, for example,... Read More

The Hobbit in 48p 3D - Technological Hero or Flop?

The Hobbit in 48p 3D - Technological Hero or Flop?

First reactions to this new HFR format on the big screen...

By Jeff Foster | December 29, 2012

There has been much anticipation for this holiday release of The Hobbit - not only in bringing this classic novel to life from the team that brought us a success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but to experience the new technological advances of 3D on the big screen at 48p. But is HFR (high frame rate) really ready for "prime time" or are we just not ready for it? I share my first reactions after seeing it myself and connect with other sources/opinions in attempting to make sense of it all... and this is going to be a heated debate for years as subjectivity and viewer feedback will win out in the end.

Create and animate 3D cogs in After Effects - Part 1

This quick video tutorial shows you how to create your own cogs inside of After Effects, and demonstrates a simple technique to ensure they animate together seamlessly.

By ChrisZwar | September 03, 2012

Sometimes jobs turn out to be more complicated than you expect them to.  Animating cogs and gears can be like that - it sounds like a nice idea, it's easy enough to arrange some stock photos of cogs together on a storyboard, but as soon as you try to animate them then things can turn pear shaped.  This quick video tutorial shows you how to create your own cogs inside of After Effects, and demonstrates a simple technique to ensure they animate together seamlessly.  Thanks to the new 3D capabilities of After Effects CS6, you can even create and animte 3D cogs and gears inside of After Effects without the need for a true 3D program.

It's useful for all of us, for newbies and old hands & for straight 3D and more abstract experimentation, at least if you have a more recent OpenGL graphics card. {C} Read More

My lengthy Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 review now online

Studio Daily posted the review last week after pounding the thing on a number of edits

By Scott Simmons | May 26, 2012

Last week Studio Daily published my Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 review. It’s a longie but a goodie as I tried to go into detail about what I really like and what I kinda don’t like about this brand new Premiere Pro. I had been pounding it hard on several projects before writing the review. I have had a few questions about exactly what kind of jobs I’ve been working on with it.
