      Review: Plantronics accidentally enters broadcast

      September 2, 2014, 9:55 am
      Plantronics is a renowned headset manufacturer for office communication, general listening, mobile telephony, and gaming, but not for broadcast or multimedia production. However, due to an unusual set of circumstances, I discovered that their completely analog Plantronics .Audio 326 headset (when combined with a portable preamp/A>D converter) transforms itself into an ultra-affordable broadcast headset for production and live streaming. Here’s my review with test recordings.

      New ALEXA ProRes 3.2K for UHD Deliverables

      September 2, 2014, 9:54 am
      ARRI today announces ProRes 3.2K, a new recording format for its ARRI ALEXA cameras that will become available through a software update scheduled for release early next year. ProRes 3.2K allows the same easy up- sampling in post to UHD deliverables as ARRIRAW Open Gate does to 4K....

      Moving Proxy Media in Final Cut Pro X

      September 2, 2014, 9:54 am
      How can I take my proxies with me? It's a question we've heard enough times that in this episode of MacBreak Studio, I show Steve Martin from Ripple Training some options for doing so. The scenario is this: you have your original media on a RAID - a large...

      Z-Depth compositing with Particular - Part 1

      September 1, 2014, 5:11 am
      Trapcode’s Particular is probably the most popular 3rd party plugin for After Effects, and amongst its many powerful features is the ability to read a z-depth map.  What it doesn’t have, however, is an obvious way to render out its own z-depth map - but by manually adjusting...

      The new NT-USB from RØDE is a studio-grade digital microphone that officially works with Mac, Windows, and iPad. Unofficially, it also works with iPhone and iPod Touch. Ahead is my review, including exclusive comparative audio recordings with Chilean singer Bárbara Intriago.

      A Bunch of Random Hard Drive Speed Tests

      August 28, 2014, 3:36 pm
      As a freelance editor I get a lot of hard drives sent to me with footage to edit. Usually all of that media is transferred off of those hard drives and onto a RAID for editing. Occasionally I might have a quick turnaround or just fixes on a project and I’ll cut right off the hard drive sent to me. The faster the drive the better for both of these tasks. I’ve been keeping a running log of hard drive speeds for the last few months and with the help of Blackmagic’s Disk Speed test I offer...

      SmartSound Plug-ins For Soundtrack Creation With A

      August 28, 2014, 4:35 am
      SmartSound has made some great advancements in their software plug-ins for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects since I did my last how-to tutorial two years ago and posted here on ProVideo Coalition. I just recreated two new short video tutorials and wanted to share them with you here, to show you just how easy this NEW round-trip method is to create/edit music soundtracks for your video/animation projects starting inside your video production apps.

      Quicktip: Optical Kerning preference in After Effe

      August 28, 2014, 4:34 am
      Optical kerning is a newer feature in Adobe apps. If you have a tendency to forget about kerning, be sure to enable Optical kerning, even it means occasionally overriding a font's built-in kern tables.
