      October 16, 2017, 9:48 am
      The annual Filmsupply Challenge is one of only a few we know of that specifically rewards editors, and those rewards are pretty sweet, including a complete pro edit bay. The contest itself is very straightforward: You download a free starter kit from the contest site, you are given access to free footage from Filmsupply and music from Musicbed, and you use those assets to create a 60-second spot in the categories of Ad Spec, Trailer, or Title Sequence.

      Blackmagic Fusion 9's Most Powerful Tool

      October 16, 2017, 6:23 am
      Meet The Custom Tool, the most powerful and versatile tool in Blackmagic Fusion's entire toolbox ??" which ironically appears to do nothing when you first apply it. That’s because it’s a tool designed for building your own tools from scratch. That may sound daunting, but under the guiding hand of longtime VFX artist, editor, and business owner Simon Ubsdell, it’s engaging, empowering, and just plain fun. If you are new to Fusion and to compositing you'll find plenty of useful information here, including how to work with channels to create complex effects surprisingly simply. Bonus tips on expressions and keying, too!
