    Why isn't satisfying customers enough?

    October 8, 2010, 8:01 pm
    This week I had an unplanned trip to Boston to fill in at the Boston FCP User Group meeting for Rich Harrington who'd suffered a back problem and wasn't able to travel. I travelled American Airlines instead of my normal choice, JetBlue.

      The Seamless Transitions in 'The Shape of Water'

      January 16, 2018, 2:05 pm
      When a film has the remarkable story of love and humanity that The Shape of Water has, it’s hard to pay attention to the other cinematic elements that help bring it to life. Guillermo del Toro creates a wonderful world for the audience to float in with the beautiful look of the film and its endearing characters, but something else struck me when I saw The Shape of Water in theaters. I couldn’t put my finger on what made me so immersed in each scene, but then I realized it wasn’t the scenes themselves. It was the transitions between them that made this a moviegoing experience unlike any I have had before.

      Blade Runner 2049, Apes Lead VES Awards Noms

      January 16, 2018, 2:05 pm
      The Visual Effects Society has announced its nominations for the 16th Annual VES Awards, and Blade Runner 2049 and War for the Planet of the Apes unsurprisingly came out on top. The two films scored seven nominations each, Despicable Me 3 for some reason topped the animated feature nominees with five, and Game of Thrones leads the TV field with 11 nominations overall.

      RenderGarden accelerates After Effects renders

      January 16, 2018, 10:23 am
      Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: After Effects renders are slow. Complex shots progress sluggishly, so you open up Activity Monitor or Task Manager (ya nerd) and stare at CPU levels flying at half-mast. It makes the days longer and the deadlines tighter, and you just know there has to be another option.

      Building a low cost Pro Tools Host Computer

      January 16, 2018, 5:35 am
      If your income depends on the tools you use day in day out, then it's vitally important to have a Plan B. For the last few years my Plan B has been my 2011 MacBook Pro i7 2.2GHz, pimped with 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD. Having a six-year-old machine, albeit state of the art in its time, as my primary backup was starting to become an issue.

      Interview Tomasz Wyszolmirski - Dabarti Studio Dir

      January 16, 2018, 5:35 am
      Tomasz came from Evermotion. Dabarti does a similar thing but more on a micro level and custom animation. It was really cool to talk to Tomasz about his background and about building his business. When you speak to owners of studios, it’s interesting to hear about the evolution of recognizing business needs.

      When applying for a job, people often say it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Well, we call BS on that.

      Bringing Creatures to Life in ‘Jumanji: Welcome

      January 15, 2018, 6:20 pm
      The sequel to the 1995 family classic takes the story of a board game that’s come to life and brings it to the digital age by transforming a group of teens into avatars and trapping them inside a video game jungle, where the only way out is to beat the game. To help create an alternate game world, Rodeo FX’s creature expertise was brought in.
