    Autodesk Ships Smoke 2013

    December 17, 2012, 3:51 pm

The new version of Smoke includes an overhauled user interface that combines editorial timelines with robust, node-based effects and compositing tools in the same environment.

      The social (VFX) lives of Hollywood

      July 19, 2017, 4:06 pm
      One of the toughest things about covering visual effects can be getting great VFX imagery to display with a story. There’s often a lengthy approvals process, and sometimes film and TV distributors just want to keep certain things under wraps. That can make it hard to produce interesting stories; in visual effects, behind the scenes images and videos tell so much of the process.

      FXPHD Resolve 14

      July 19, 2017, 4:06 pm
      I started using DaVinci Resolve in 2005. It was a $300,000 system, the hardware rack was the size of a doorway and it took a Resolve engineer two days to install. In 2006 I met with Mike Seymour and John Montgomery, who said they were thinking of opening an online university. They asked me if I would like to be their professor of color. I didn’t really have any ideas of the specifics, but being keen to try different things I jumped at the chance.

      Watch: What Makes a Great Chase Scene?

      July 19, 2017, 9:48 am
      The best car chase scenes, like bridges in classic songs, move viewers from one part of a film to another. Rather than being merely vehicles to fill otherwise unassigned screen time, they can tell audiences a lot about the inner workings of the movie you're making.

      VFX Super for City of a Thousand Planets

      July 19, 2017, 9:48 am
      The first time Scott Stokdyk worked for Luc Besson back in 1995, the French auteur hired him to work on his then-groundbreaking sci-fi flick The Fifth Element. "At that time I was just this computer artist sitting at a work station for fourteen hours a day in a little dark cubicle excited to be working in the world of film,” says Scott. Since then, visual effects have made gargantuan advances, and so has Scott. He won an Oscar for his work on Spider-Man 2 and made munchkins for Oz The Great and Powerful.

      5 Editors that need more Recognition

      July 18, 2017, 5:36 am
      When you reach the end credits of a film, you’ll see an editor’s name right up there with the directors and the stars of the movie. You’ll also see an editor’s name at the beginning credits as well. But why aren’t editors more recognized? The ones who get all the attention and press are the directors, actors, producers, and writers. Yet rarely do we ever recognize or even know the name of the editors of films.
