It’s a good bet most people know how to sing, or hum, ’The Bare Necessities’. The song hails from Disney’s 1967 animated THE JUNGLE BOOK while the man-cub Mowgli floats down a jungle river atop the lazy bear Baloo. So when Disney and director Jon Favreau were translating the animated film to this year’s live action adventure, that scene in particular was one they had to get right. A combination of innovative virtual production techniques, inspired puppetry and advanced CGI from visual effects studio MPC made the re-creation a reality.

As many have seen in the recent remake of The Jungle Book, digital animal effects have come a long way since the days of the Jurassic Park T-Rex. But perhaps no film in the last decade-plus helped the cause of digital animals more than Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The VFX work done on Aslan by Sony Imageworks inspired a whole host of VFX houses, such as Rhythm & Hues, who produced award-winning VFX for Life of Pi. Let’s take a look at a few more stellar instances of animal VFX.

There is a big hype around virtual reality and everyone is trying to hitch a ride on the VR train. This is good for consumers because the hardware is getting cheaper and VR content more abundant. The downside, if you could call it that, is the choice and finding the right product.

I’m a huge fan of integration. Any time you can integrate an external program into your NLE, it’s a good thing. It lets us do more in our timelines, without having to leave it, which means we can get our jobs done quicker than ever before.

Helga Cranston (1921-2013) arrived in London in 1939, as an 18-year-old German Jewish refugee. By the mid-1940s she was working as an editor and, on the recommendation of her mentor Reginald Beck (who had edited Laurence Olivier’s Henry V), was invited to edit Hamlet (1948).

I’m going to take you back to May of 2015. After a long journey filming with a prototype 360-stereoscopic rig — a very early predecessor to this one — I found myself in Seattle preparing for an edit. I stared into the familiar void of an empty timeline, but I was suddenly without experience or expertise. There were no books on editing in virtual reality, no one with advice, no theory on how to proceed.

In the latest version of DaVinci Resolve 12.5, Blackmagic Design overhauled the Log grading controls along with the overall approach these settings affect colours. Currently, they provide much smoother and more pleasing results, especially when it comes to color grading Log-encoded images. All in all, now there are two ways of using the Log mode controls. On one hand, you can utilise these settings to make quick, colour grading adjustments to your Log footage while it’s normalised by a LUT. The other way is actually the one showcased by Theo of MiesnerMedia in the video below where the colorist takes advantage of the more restrictive, but adjustable tonal range of the Shadow, Midtone and Highlight controls to stylise the look of the Log-encoded clip by tinting specific regions of the image.
