People are sometimes surprised to discover Easter eggs in After Effects -- apparent oddities in the interface.

I wanted to chat about another interesting surprise from AJA called the LUT-box.

I couldn’t go to NAB without stopping by and visiting the folks at Red Giant Software. Their big news was the launch of Red Giant Universe and I talked with Sean from Red Giant about just that.

Although they've discussed some of the benefits of camera archives before, in this episode, Mark shows Steve an additional benefit: relinking media. If you ever have media go offline for any reason, if you had simply copied the card, you would have to locate that media clip by clip as you relink, since it's located in a bunch of different folders. But with a camera archive, relinking media is a simple one-step operation.
