    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...

      Assure ALL Your Audio is Legal

      July 23, 2014, 9:46 am
      The note "Disputed thir party matehced content will be the first sign" that YouTube considers you audio to be used without permission When starting in videography with a DSLR, the main problem a newcomer has is with sound. DSLR's excel at image but are absolute crap when it comes to sound, either monaural or stereo. So, the first option for someone starting on this path is to skip the sound recording at the source and think of some background music or sounds to add to the video afterw...

      Pinnacle Studio for iPad to add missing framerates

      July 16, 2014, 9:10 am
      Last month, I published an article covering improvements in Pinnacle Studio for iPad, which is a video editing app which was originally an Avid product. At the same time, I made some constructive criticisms to the lack of non-integer framerates and proper 48 kHz. I am now delighted to let you know that the developer has committed to adding all of those. Ahead are the details.

      Inexpensive balanced XLR lavalier microphone test

      July 15, 2014, 12:32 pm
      If you have ever priced lavalier microphones with balanced XLR connections, you know that they typically cost upwards of US$150 each, and sometimes can cost more than double that price. However, my friend María found a package deal where she was able to receive not one, but two balanced XLR lavalier microphones for well under US$100, which means that each mic cost less than US$50. Ahead you’ll get to hear four recorded tests and make your own conclusion about the quality.
