      A COLORING HOOK FOR EDITORS

      March 23, 2009, 12:34 pm
      In late February, an overflow crowd made up largely of picture editors and assistant editors attended a presentation at the Editors Guild’s West Coast headquarters by London-based FilmLight Ltd., makers of the Baselight real-time color grading system. The purpose of the evening, which was presented by FilmLight’s US product manager Peter Postma, was to provide an overview of the Digital Intermediate (DI) and color science processes, the active role that editors can play in that process...

      THOMSON INTRODUCES 'MP3HD' AUDIO FORMAT

      March 23, 2009, 12:33 pm
      The popular mp3 format was co-developed by Thomson and the Fraunhofer Institute IIS. The new mp3HD format includes additional side information, which, together with the mp3 portion of the file, can be decoded by an mp3HD-capable decoder. Standard mp3 players can simply play the mp3 portion of the file.

      March 20, 2009, 12:31 pm
      Frank Capria has been at the forefront of digital content creation technologies since its earliest beginnings. New England based Capria was one of the first adopters of digital editing on the Avid Media Composer upon the systems release in 1989.

      Time Stands Still for 'Watchmen' Editor

      March 19, 2009, 12:30 pm
      When Editor William Hoy, ACE, re-teamed with Director Zack Snyder for Watchmen, the two knew they were embarking on a project with challenges tougher even than those they faced on their previous outing, the epic 300. While that graphic-novel-based feature melded CGI, post-heavy speed changes and virtual camera moves, Watchmen would also have its share of digital set extensions, postproduction "camera effects" and CGI work. And it would have a very bizarre group of superheroes whose behavior...

      Quicktime Conundrum, Part 2: Solved by our Readers

      March 13, 2009, 12:26 pm
      A couple of great suggestions for creating flawless H.264 Quicktime—and Flash!—movies popped up in the comments section of my last article. They deserve their own article. Reader Brandon Cory suggests that exporting a Quicktime reference movie from Final Cut Pro in the Animation codec and then running that through Compressor’s H.264 encoder should retain the proper gamma settings.

      The Quicktime Conundrum pt. 1

      March 13, 2009, 12:25 pm
      There’s nothing like waking up in the morning and realizing that your chief marketing tool is probably driving away more clients than it’s attracting. I both love, and hate, Quicktime. Flash is the universally accepted method of viewing video on the web but it doesn’t seem to be an easy or cost-effective tool for those of us who want to manage our own showreel web sites.
