    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...

      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.

      LOG and RAW workflows and the Adobe video tools

      October 21, 2014, 1:12 pm
      On October 16, colorist Robbie Carman presented LOG and RAW workflows on the Ask a Video Pro Adobe webinar series. The session was excellent and the participants had lots of great comments and questions. So many questions, in fact, that I asked Robbie if he would be willing to write answers to...

      Kicking the Tires on the Adobe Premiere Pro CC 8.1

      It was announced at IBC and shipped at Adobe MAX (I wonder if this will become the norm?) and it’s another big update to Adobe Premiere Pro. We dissected the features when this update was announced but now that we’ve had the chance to work with it we can dig in a bit deeper. I’d have posted this sooner but I’ve been editing!Kicking
