To The Aotg.com Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we will no longer be updating Aotg.com. Back in 2007, when we started, there was a lack of access to information about film, television, and commercial editing. We wanted to fix that by creating a central location for content about editing to be stored.

Since then, we've watched the amount of content about editing on the internet grow exponentially. We've also watched social media tools come and go with that growth. Does anyone remember Google Wave!? These social media tools changed how people access and search for media and information. People tend to turn to Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram for their news and information, and those are all great tools to promote your sites, but as a site that aggregates links to other sites for users, it just doesn't work for us.

We will keep the site live but archive the ability to add links and comments. We will keep our database live with the links for those who desire to use it to search for editing information and research.

Our podcast, The Cutting Room, will move over to the Filmmakeru.com website and will continue to be a place for interviews with editors and other film professionals.

Everyone who worked for Aotg.com loved what we created and are proud that we could help so many editors find content that spoke to them.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the various post events worldwide in the coming years!

Yours truly,
Gordon Burkell
Aotg.com Founder

Creating Clean Plates Is Easier than Ever

Existing automation tools for background restoration are seldom specialized for stereo conversion. Addressing these needs, YUVsoft now offers an improved version of its 2D to 3D Suite with the powerful Background Reconstruction (BGR) tool. BGR enables quality temporal restoration of backgrounds for moving foreground objects, using information from other frames in the sequence. In other words, the tool generates the actual background as it appears in neighboring frames.

Report #4 on stereo errors: 3D quality does matter

Graphics & Media Lab of MSU continues to work on VQMT3D (Video Quality Measurement Tool 3D) Project with an aim to improve stereoscopic film quality. The Lab intends to provide a reliable quality-assessment tool and therefore to help filmmakers and conversion studios to produce high-quality 3D video. The first 3 reports on stereoscopic errors in 3D films have been published earlier this year. Now the Lab presents the 4th evaluation results of 5 S3D films captured with stereoscopic camera systems

Researcher Denis Sumin and his supervisor Pr. Dmitriy Vatolin from Lomonosov Moscow State University are leading a project on 3D stereoscopic movie quality assessment called VQMT3D (Video Quality Measurement Tool 3D). Report #3 of 6 has just been released in August 2013 (free access to all 3D professionals). Report #3 analyses in great details -literally image by image and pixel by pixel- specific 2D-to-3D conversion metrics such as edge sharpness mismatch and cardboard effect for 5 3D films.

Stereo errors in converted films: how they arise?

3D stereo leaves nobody indifferent – it has got a lot of delighted supporters and many critical opponents. The opponents sentence 3D to death because of its technical problems and stereoscopic errors, causing headache and eye-strain. However, many problems can be solved, if to try to understand their reasons. Graphics & Media Lab managed to do it in its VQMT3D Project. The third report is dedicated to quality analysis of S3D films converted from 2D footage during post-production.

Easy fixing of 2D to stereo 3D conversion errors

Many typical conversion errors are easy and fast to fix without depth map correction and / or stereo painting. It's also possible to reduce the volume of necessary clean plates. Look how to do it very easy with Stereo generator - just set parallax, screen play level and here you go!
