    Have Autodesk Smoked The Competition?

    April 16, 2012, 7:20 pm
    From a post-production perspective Autodesk's announcement of Smoke 2013 has probably been the biggest news of NAB 2012. Smoke is an established product from Autodesk. Initially it was a high-end system running only on expensive turnkey Linux systems, then in 2009 they released Smoke for Mac...

      4K and the Future

      April 14, 2012, 9:04 am
      NAB 2012 is just around the corner and it seems the buzz this year is going to be 4K. Last year it was 3D, and this year it's 4K. RED has been there for a while and Jim Jannard has been calling 1080P a "mistake" for years. Now Sony and...

      The FCP X Disconnect

      January 19, 2012, 9:04 am
      The uproar about FCP X is mainly caused by the disconnect between Apple's view of FCP and that of many of its professional users... I've created a very simple (and imprecise) graph to try and represent that. The numbers are made up but are intended to illustrate the broad point...

      FCP X - The Car

      January 19, 2012, 9:03 am
      I've been struggling for the last couple of days to find a reasonable way to contextualise the decision Apple has made, in terms of broadcast editing, with some other less niche analogy. A car analogy always cuts through the confusion, so I think I've come up with one.

      Virtual XDCAM

      January 17, 2012, 10:54 am
      I noticed a thread on the Avid-L2 about file-based delivery, specifically in this case it was NBC wanting XDCAM file delivery (MXF 50Mb/s HD files) - Bourke from Videotoolshed offered some great information about using Avid's Export to Device function to get an XDCAM-format MXF file suitable for delivery. By providing an empty XDCAM folder...

      I Can Do My Job Better Than You

      November 6, 2011, 11:25 am
      The proliferation of inexpensive cameras and post-production tools in the last decade has resulted in a lot of jacks of all trades. It also has increasingly led us to focus on the the technology as if it is some magic bullet. Art Adams has written a great article on the subject at ProVideo Coalition...

      An Epic Shopping Spree

      November 5, 2011, 10:24 am
      So is there anything that the C300 does better than the #Scarlet, which is half the price and higher-res? -Jonas Hummelstrand on Twitter. This was the common meme on Twitter after the Scarlet launch, but just like the Sony F3 is the same price as a RED One assumption – it's really not true. If you're [...]

      F--- It, We'll Do It Live!

      September 28, 2011, 9:03 am
      Once a week I join my friends Morgan and Ben via Skype to make New Zealand's best podcast – Discourse. It's an audio podcast about mostly geek things, with some generic politics and random stuff thrown in. Really we're just talking crap for an hour or so each week. Well we've decided to kick it...
