    Making a Matte Painting with Elements in Motion

    May 1, 2012, 8:18 am
    In the days of early motion picture making the art of "matte painting" was a process of actually painting with oils on a plate glass that was then shot in position in front of a scene on location or in the studio where the film would be exposed by the combined images through the camera's lens, creating an illusion that the actors int...

      Sitting is literally killing us. We all work ridiculous hours in our caves. We all need more sunlight. We visit the snack wall too often. We don’t socialize enough. And we are all tired of feeling like garbage. Enter Zack Arnold to help educate and literally save...

      Cineform: render quality settings + more in Creati

      October 28, 2014, 4:42 am
      GoPro Cineform, aka the SMPTE ST 2073 VC-5 video compression standard, is a cross platform codec that piggybacks onto QuickTime (warts and all). The codec is available in Adobe video apps in CC 2014.1, and plays system-wide if you download the free player or free GoPro Studio app. GoPro Cineform is a wavelet-based codec that holds up well even after multiple encodes, and features full support for alpha and large frame sizes of 4K and beyond.

      Review: Átomos Spyder monitor calibration system

      October 23, 2014, 6:43 pm
      Last year I published a short article when Átomos announced its Spyder monitor calibration system. Now I am privileged to have received one to review. With it, we can quickly and easily calibrate any calibratable Átomos monitor/recorder (i.e. Shogun, Samurai Blade, or Ninja Blade) to Rec 709 color space with a D65 white point (6500 degrees Kelvin). This is a special offering of Datacolor’s Spyder, with special software and a LANC cable. Details ahead.
