      Is Your Bit Rate Good Enough?

      October 19, 2017, 5:06 am
      As I mentioned before, bit rate is how much data is sent each time period (usually measured in seconds). The higher the bit rate, the more information is sent. With more data, there are fewer artifacts.

      How Ireland's VFX Community Is Courting Hollywood

      October 19, 2017, 5:06 am
      If you're in L.A. or London and you close your eyes and think about Ireland, you don't necessarily think about visual effects," says Jim Duggan, managing director of Dublin-based postproduction house Screen Scene. "You think about green fields and castles and locations." While the country's lush scenery may always remain the top draw, its growing post and VFX offerings are beginning to grab the world's attention. Screen Scene has worked on Game of Thrones since the first season (on which it did all the post), something Duggan admits has been a "big flag waver" for the company.

      Video Editing Tricks: Moving the Camera Through a

      October 18, 2017, 1:35 pm
      Of the many practical visual effects you can create with camera movements, passing through inanimate objects is the most visually striking and jarring (in a good way) trick you can pull. Add moving the character with the camera through a mirror or window, and you’ve created something truly special. It’s an excellent way to propel your story and style to new heights.
