    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...

      A floating timecode window comes to FCPX

      May 5, 2015, 3:42 am
      The internet has been abuzz the last few days as the good folks over at FxFactory have solved one rather important missing feature of Final Cut Pro X - A floating, resizable Timecode window. Timecode is a new, free download that adds just that. It’s nice and it’s free. This has been available in most other NLEs for awhile. Let’s take a look at all of them.

      After Effects Hidden Gems: Temporary Tools

      May 4, 2015, 4:21 pm
      If you’re an After Effects user, you’re familiar with the Tools panel along top of the user interface. However, if you’ve been mousing up to that panel to change tools, you’re wasting time; you can change tools by pressing its corresponding shortcut key, revealed by hovering the cursor over it to reveal its Tool Tip and committing it to memory. But even better, you can temporarily change to that tool only when you need it, and automatically return to the Selection tool (the one you u...

      Blackmagic announces Video Assist recorder/monitor

      May 3, 2015, 1:40 pm
      At NAB in Las Vegas, Blackmagic announced its new Video Assist monitor/recorder. Blackmagic’s new device is clearly aimed to be a modern version of their own HyperDeck Shuttle 2, and to compete with Átomos’s Ninja/Samurai and SoundDevices‘/VideoDevices’ Pix recorders (which I have covered previously). Unfortunately, Blackmagic’s Video Assist team initially forgot a critical feature that solves a problem that Átomos, NewTek, and VideoDevices tackled years ago.

      Automatic versioning in After Effects

      May 2, 2015, 9:08 am
      No-one likes boring and repetitive work, so this After Effects tutorial demonstrates how to create many different versions of the same animation with only one click.  If you have to produce 100 name straps for a conference, or 500 lower thirds for a broadcaster, then this will show you how to do all of the tedious work automatically.  Just design your "main" composition and different versions can be generated with a single click.

      With the relaunch of ProVideo Coalition this year, we rolled DAM Coalition into a channel on PVC that focuses on workflow, storage and archive in media and entertainment. It was an opportunity to create relevant content for regular readers of PVC while also highlighting some of the more technically minded professionals from different areas of media & entertainment for the benefit of our current and expanded audience.
