NAB 2012: Technicolor CineLights from the GoPro booth

A simple, affordable color correction application for the GoPro crowd might be useful in other circles as well

By Scott Simmons | April 20, 2012

I wandered into GoPro’s rather large booth on Thursday morning as they had both a Porsche 911 and Ford GT40 on display with a ton of GoPros attached. An announcement late in the NAB week was that an update to the tiny GoPro cameras would finally give them 24 frames per second capability. It was also a surprise that none other than Technicolor was going to supply a flat cinema-style picture profile for a bit more dynamic range in your GoPro footage as a part of that firmware update. I was even more surprised to see Technicolor demoing a new color correction application called CineLights in the GoPro booth as well.

Larry Jordan, Daryn Okada, and Allan T©pper join Leo Laporte and Alex Lindsay on MacBreak Weekly

By Allan Tépper | April 19, 2012

At NAB 2012, I was honored to be invited by Leo Laporte to participate together with Larry Jordan, Daryn Okada and Alex Lindsay on MacBreak Weekly. This episode 295 was streamed live from the Las Vegas Convention Center on Tuesday, April 17 2012 and is now available for immediate streaming or download. We discuss many of the new developments at NAB 2012, in general and with respect to the Mac. Alex Lindsay even comments about the potency of the coffee he allegedly consumed during his yet unconfirmed trip to the 24th century during the creation of a yet unannounced feature, as covered in a recent article here in ProVideo Coalition magazine. This episode of MacBreak Weekly has a duration of 1:41, calculated especially for fans of palindromes.

NAB 2012:  Eizo 4K Monitor

You are going to have to look at your 4K footage on *something.*

By Bruce A Johnson | April 18, 2012

At NAB 2012, when you see a crowd of people clotted around a small booth, it's a sign you should pay attention. The Eizo full 4K monitor I found there was easily one of the most beautiful I saw all week, with a price tag to match. Also: A belated "Thanks!" to my colleague Erik Higgs for letting me edit on his laptop while in Vegas. Read More

NAB Sunday: Panasonic and Sony Press Conferences

What the two big camera companies taked about officially.

By Adam Wilt | April 16, 2012

One of many GH2s being used to record the Panasonic press conference.

When big companies hold press conferences, they're a mix of marketing / sales encomiums from happy customers, and some actual useful information about technologies and products. I'll mostly focus on the tech stuff that Panasonic and Sony announced today (and adding my own snarky commentary in [square brackets]). Read More

Autodesk Smoke 2013: it really changed for the better

Autodesk Smoke 2013: it really changed for the better

And at a new lower price of $3,495 it'll find its way into a lot more edit suites

By Scott Simmons | April 16, 2012

Autodesk has been saying for quite a few weeks now that Smoke is changing and they were right. What was previously a very high-end, very expensive, somewhat inaccessible piece of post-production software is now a very high-end, much more affordable (though still expensive for many) and more approachable piece of post-production software. The biggest news of all is that Smoke for Mac has gone from $15,000 down to $3,495. The second bit of news is that it should be a lot easier for editors to use.

My top 5 (or so) Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 features

There's a lot packed into the upgrade. It's not perfect but it makes a big leap forward.

By Scott Simmons | April 12, 2012

The cat is out of the bag on the Adobe CS6 Production Premium. It isn’t shipping yet but I’ve been able test out some of the CS6 products for a few weeks now. While there’s big additions and changes in the entire Creative Suite my first and main focus was to see just how Premiere Pro has changed, what new features have been added and what hasn’t been addressed as of yet. Overall, Adobe continues to make Premiere Pro a better product that will let you "edit your way". It isn’t perfect (no NLE is perfect) but it’s a lot better than 5.5 … and 5.5 was pretty good itself. Here’s my top 5 (or so) features in Premiere Pro CS6 and a couple of comments on what is still missing. Please forgive some wonkieness on PVC if you're not seeing certain images as we've been having some server issues recently that they are working to fix. A reload of the page might help.

The Masters of Compositing Series - Part 2: Paul Vlahos

Co-founder of Ultimatte and developer of modern compositing technologies.

By Jeff Foster | March 27, 2012

This is the second in a series of interviews with the pioneers and masters in the compositing/VFX film & television industry. I originally recorded these interviews for my published book "The Green Screen Handbook" (Sybex/Wiley, pub) and had intended to produce one full-length documentary from the materials. But after a couple of years past now, I thought they would be better served as individual parts of a series to help educate and inform people about these historic times from the early days of VFX compositing through modern-day techniques.
