    FINAL

    February 10, 2012, 9:04 am
    "Gah! I jinxed myself!" said my co-worker, who I share an edit bay with. "I labelled the last sequence as 'Final,' and now I have changes. I KNEW that I shouldn’t do that. Every time..." And this is true. Adding FINAL to the name of the sequence will almost guarantee that changes will be given. Often...

      PERFORMING YOUR OWN QC

      March 19, 2017, 5:01 am
      Whenever a show is delivered to a TV network, it is run through a process called “QC,” or “Quality Control.” Typically this is done on the network end, and if they spot any issues, like flash frames or audio hits or access luma (image is too “white,” IRE above 100) or temp footage…any number of […]

      CLONING WINDOWS…SAGA OF THE AMPHIBIHACK, PART 3

      January 30, 2017, 6:56 am
      Where we last left off, I was installing Windows 10 onto my Hack, dipping my toes in the Windows waters in anticipation of a full on transfer. After playing around with it for a few days I was getting a little frustrated with the slowness of it. That wasn’t the fault of Windows…it was the […]

      MIGRATING TO WINDOWS

      January 18, 2017, 6:23 am
      This is a tough thing to admit, but I’m seriously considering a move from Mac to Windows.  Tough, because I’ve been a Mac user ever since I bought my first computer in 1991, a Mac Classic. Why am I doing this? Well, Apple used to be the front runner when it came to computers for […]

      CINEXINSERT is a big time saver

      January 18, 2017, 6:22 am
      I was faced with a problem. I finished exporting the 9 masters needed for this program…five HD masters and four 4K masters…when the network contacted us saying there was an issue with the open title, and they needed to supply me with a new one. Why was this a problem? Well, this 15 second title […]

      SAGA OF THE AMPHIBI-HACK, PART 2: THE BUILD

      September 1, 2016, 5:51 am
      “Are there supposed to be two of these?” My wife texts me at work. “I thought you were only making one of these.” On Friday the parts for the computer arrived. And apparently something happened with the order, as TWO computer cases arrived. So my wife, who knew I was building ONE computer was confused, […]

      SAGA OF THE AMPHIBI-HACK – PART 1

      August 28, 2016, 5:57 am
      Building a Mac with PC parts… Before I get into this build saga, I want to say a word of warning. Unless you are a very technical person who knows how to navigate a basic PC BIOS (motherboard OS) or how to swap out some computer code or know some specifics about piecing together a […]

      TANGENT RIPPLE – MINI REVIEW

      July 13, 2016, 5:02 am
      A mini review for a mini color panel. This is an unsolicited review…Tangent didn’t ask me to do it. I wasn’t supplied with a review unit. I rushed out and pre-ordered it from Flanders Scientific (where I get my broadcast monitors)…and then anxiously awaited it’s arrival for a couple months. It arrived late June in […]

      Goodbye, ClipWrap…

      ClipWrap is dead…long live CLIPWRAP! On Tuesday, July 28, 2016, ClipWrap from DivergentMedia.com will no longer be available for purchase. It is being end-of-lifed. It is a sad thing to see this go…it has been one of the most useful software tools in my kit for many many years, it not the most useful. This […]

      June 7, 2016, 12:23 pm
      This is the FIFTH episode of THE EDIT BAY that I did many years ago…but when I was looking for it to link to it on a forum post answer, I realize that I didn’t ever post it on my blog! It’s one of my favorite stories…so…it might be new to some of you, even […]
