      DAW Control With Console 1

      September 29, 2016, 9:09 am
      Ever since its introduction, Console 1 has worked in tandem with every major DAW on the market. Now, the next level of control is here. In Presonus Studio One and Cakewalk SONAR, vital DAW functions can be controlled right from the Console 1 hardware—allowing an even smoother workflow. The update will be available in October, but you can see it at AES Los Angeles 2016 (booth 427).

      Captain America Civil War VFX Breakdown

      September 29, 2016, 9:09 am
      Just last week we learned that the suit that Chadwick Boseman wears as Black Panther was created entirely in post-production by visual effects. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo confirmed that the look they wanted the suit to have on camera simply wasn’t possible to create practically without having a suit that would have been much more torturous than the suit that was worn on set (which was already rather inconvenient to wear, especially in the hot heat of Atlanta, Georgia where much of the movie was shot).

      In the design world, it’s pretty easy to look new projects up, watch the latest pieces of advertising and check out making ofs. But it’s not always as simple to hear from the people – the creatives – behind the work.
