Copyright infringement is a serious thing. As an artist I don’t want people stealing my work. But then again I also want a toilet made of solid gold encrusted with diamonds. We can’t always get what we want, there will always be a level of forgery and copyright infringement in any industry —the problem is maintaining a balance to counteract it while preserving the freedoms of everybody else. The SOPA legislation is a badly written horrible piece of legislation that is being pushed through congress in order to afford big companies more power over you; while doing very little to actually stop copyright infringement.
write a letter to congress or send an e-mail to a company that supports SOPA and let them know you care about your freedoms.
The best practices and workflows for a lot of departments in the digital arts industry. The website has a lot of general information that can serve most ppl working with digital media. Learn about color, sensors, and hard drives, plus a lot of underlying fundamentals every pro needs to know. Also, it has cool charts and pretty pictures :D
For 20k this camera should have so much more. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the specs, basically the C300 is a competitor to RED’s Scarlet X and the Sony F3 or ARRI Alexa. Now the Alexa is 88k and the C300 is about 20k (the street price when it comes out should be lower) -but Canon is touting Alexa like footage. However, from the video I have seen and my personal experiance working with RED and Alexa footage I don’t think Canon is on par with Alexa
The Canon C 300 has a 4K sensor, but only outputs 1080p max, there is no 60p at 1080p it, captures 4:2:2 footage (about time) -and while the footage looks good, I honestly don’t think an audience member can tell the difference between the c 300 and a well shot scene on a 5D. In fact I am more excited about the 5D mark III, because if they can fix the audio, moire aliasing problems, give it better resolving power, change the codec to something better and give it more options; I think DSLRs will still be the way to go for a while. After much thought I still think the best value right now is the AG AF-100 from Panasonic at 5k that camera cannot be beat.
If you haven’t been keeping up with the Foundry’s latest software, you are in for a huge surprise. I have been waiting for a program like this. It makes all the sense in the world and im surprised this wasn’t released any sooner. You can now import EDLs see what shots need VFX applied to them, export those out and manage what has been done. So awesome! I so want to use this between premiere or Avid and After effects!
Very first post! I have handled and posted for a couple of other blogs, and the story is always the same. Some one starts off with, Well this is my first post, I hope to put up cool and interesting things and share experiences with you all. Follow me and stay tune.
