    Ever set up your project to work in 16 or 32-bit float, and you then apply an effect, only to get into the effects window to find that the effect only supports 8-bit? Annoying isn’t it? Wouldn’t you love to know what bit depth the effect supports before you drop it onto your clip? Well, now you can!

      Post Production Starts in Pre...

      July 2, 2010, 12:30 pm
      It might surprise some to learn that the most important part of post-production for an independent film is the pre-production phase. Before shooting a single frame or pixel, the first decision any independent moviemaker should make is to scout an indie-friendly, post-production facility. Achieving success cannot occur without tediously planning for the end of the production. It becomes increasingly pertinent when working with tighter time constraints and the budget of an independent film...

      Intro to the Media Composer 5 Smart Tool

      July 2, 2010, 10:50 am
      Avid’s new version of its Media Composer software, Media Composer 5, has some of the most substantial changes to the product in years. From the ability to access many different media types, including QuickTime and RED files natively (without having to transcode), to support for RTAS audio plug-ins, this new release is poised to be a big success by giving editors more power and flexibility than ever.

      Red: MC5 to DS Workflow

      July 2, 2010, 8:32 am
      With the introduction of AMA support for RED media in Media Composer 5 it has become a easier to edit RED footage in MC, but it’s still not a finishing solution for many jobs. Avid’s DS product, on the other hand, is a great RED finishing tool.

      The Man Who Created AVID – Part I

      July 1, 2010, 9:39 pm
      Today I have the great pleasure of posting Part I of a conversation I had with an amazing, not to mention amazingly accomplished person, Bill Warner. A graduate of MIT, Bill founded Avid Technology in 1987. With a small team of hardware and software engineers Mr. Warner created the tool that radically altered the way films, television and all dynamic media are created, the Avid Media Composer...

      CS5 & critical evaluation monitoring?

      July 1, 2010, 9:38 pm
      Anyone who has ever read the seven articles I’ve published so far about critical video evaluation —be it with the HP DreamColor monitor, or any other brand and model— knows why this process has traditionally required a professional interface to do this properly. Even Apple has warned about this, both verbally at NAB 2005 when announcing the Digital Cinema Desktop, as well as in writing, in Apple’s support article TA27705.
