    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...

      Easter eggs in After Effects: a new hunt

      April 17, 2014, 4:49 pm
      People are sometimes surprised to discover Easter eggs in After Effects -- apparent oddities in the interface. Some of these have been around for a very long time, maybe even since the inception of After Effects. MographWiki collected some of these into a list a few years ago, though not all of them.

      The Power of the Timeline Index in Final Cut Pro X

      April 17, 2014, 7:51 am
      The Timeline Index is one of the hidden jewels of Final Cut Pro X. Have you been using it to its full potential? The Timeline Index is essentially a database window into your timeline. Since FCP X is in some ways a big database, all the items in your timeline: video clips,...

      PVC at NAB 2014 - Talking CION workflow with AJA

      April 15, 2014, 4:04 pm
      While all the biggest news and coverage out of AJA came around their surprise CION camera I took my turn interviewing Bryce Button of AJA about a few things beyond the CION. I wanted to chat about another interesting surprise from AJA called the LUT-box. This unassuming $695 interface sits just outside of your viewing monitor in the signal chain and is designed to transform that signal with a 3D LUT.

      PVC at NAB - Red Giant talks Universe and More

      April 15, 2014, 2:33 pm
      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. But I didn’t want to let the other stuff go by unmentioned either so a talk with Randon gets us some info on Bulletproof, PluralEyes and the new Instant 4K.

      Interview with 12 Years a Slave Editor Joe Walker

      March 18, 2014, 9:34 pm
      It’s not often that Hollywood’s stars publicly recognize the great stewardship that an editor of a film has of their performance. But it’s a long journey between what an actor emotes in front of a camera and the reception of that performance by an audience. The director certainly has a strong influence on that performance, but the editor (with the director’s guidance) is the final gatekeeper of the performance the audience sees and the context in which it’s seen.

      Why Use Camera Archives in Final Cut Pro X?

      March 16, 2014, 12:05 pm
      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.
