  • Did you pick the right camera? Part 3

    Did you pick the right camera? Part 3

    June 9, 2019, 7:52 am
    Let me wrap up this three-parter with some thoughts on the media side of cameras. The switch from videotape recording to file-based recording has added complexity with not only specific file formats and codecs, but also the wrapper and container structure of the files themselves. The earliest file-based camera systems from Sony and Panasonic created […]

      The 2019 Mac Pro Truck

      June 19, 2019, 5:59 am
      In 2010 Steve Jobs famously provided us with the analogy that traditional computers are like trucks in the modern era. Not that trucks were going away, but simply were no longer a necessity for most of us, now that the majority of the populace wasn’t engaged in farming. While trucks would continue to be purchased […]

      Good Omens

      June 14, 2019, 7:24 am
      Fans of British television comedies have a new treat in Amazon Prime’s Good Omens. The six-part mini-series is a co-production of BBC Studios and Amazon Studios. It is the screen adaptation of the 1990 hit novel by the late Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, entitled Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, […]

      Did you pick the right camera? Part 2

      June 8, 2019, 6:05 am
      HDR (high dynamic range) imagery and higher display resolutions start with the camera. Unfortunately that’s also where the misinformation starts. That’s because the terminology is based on displays and not on camera sensors and lenses. Resolution 4K is pretty common, 8K products are here, and 16K may be around the corner. Resolution is commonly expressed […]

      Did you pick the right camera? Intro

      June 3, 2019, 5:44 am
      My first facility job after college at a hybrid production/post company included more than just editing. Our largest production effort was to produce, post, and dub weekly price-and-item retail TV commercials for a large, regional grocery chain. This included two to three days a week of studio production for product photography (product displays, as well […]

      Minimalism versus Complexity in Post

      May 19, 2019, 3:26 am
      The prevailing wisdom is that Apple might preview the next Mac Pro at its annual WWDC event coming in a couple of weeks. Then the real product would likely be available by the end of the year. It will be interesting to see what that brings, given that the current Mac Pro was released in […]

      It is time to reconsider Final Cut Pro X?

      May 5, 2019, 11:34 am
      While Final Cut Pro X may have ultimately landed in the market sector that Apple envisioned, the industry widely acknowledged that the original launch could have been better managed. Many staunch Final Cut Pro (“legacy”) users were irrevocably alienated. That’s a shame, but FCPX wasn’t a bad design when released – merely incomplete. In the […]

      NAB Show 2019

      April 14, 2019, 6:10 am
      This year the NAB Show seemed to emphasize its roots – the “B” in National Association of Broadcasters. Gone or barely visible were the fads of past years, such as stereoscopic 3D, 360-degree video, virtual/augmented reality, drones, etc. Not that these are gone – merely that they have refocused on the smaller segment of marketshare […]

      Are you ready for a custom PC?

      April 3, 2019, 6:09 am
      Why would an editor, colorist, or animator purchase a workstation from a custom PC builder, instead of one of the brand name manufacturers? Puget Systems, a PC supplier in Washington state, loaned me a workstation to delve into this question. They pride themselves on assembling systems tailor-made for creative users. Not all component choices are […]

      Blackmagic Design eGPU Pro

      March 8, 2019, 7:21 am
      Last year Apple embraced external graphics processing units. Blackmagic Design responded with the release of its AMD-powered eGPU model. Many questioned their choice of the Radeon Pro 580 chip instead of something more powerful. That challenge has been answered with the new Blackmagic eGPU Pro. It sports the Radeon RX Vega 56 – a similar […]

      The Nuances of Overcranking

      March 3, 2019, 8:57 am
      The concept of overcranking and undercranking in the world of film and video production goes back to the origins of motion picture technology. The earliest film cameras required the camera operator to manually crank the film mechanism – they didn’t have internal motors. A good camera operator was partially judged by how constant of a […]
