Hi all, We've got a big issue following a recent green screen shoot on a 2.5k BlackMagic Cinema Camera. We've never shot with this cam before, and foolishly assumed it'd be similar to something like t

Hi Rick, Yeah, the motion blur is nuts! I'm going to start properly working on it next week, just been prepping it this week whilst finishing up current projects. I think we shot it at 180 unfortunate

I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts on this too... More RAM, for the love of god we need more RAM.
C4D to Nuke

Hi, Any tips on getting a C4D scene to Nuke I've found a really odd work around involving baking all the camera's animation curves, then copying them onto a cube, and exporting the whole scene as an F

Hi, you can open the Nuke file in textedit or notepad (or anything that displays plain text documents) and find and 'replace all' the portion of the path that needs to be changed. Pete roguekeyframe.c

Media Composer 6 floating windows

Hi all, Just downloaded the trial of MC6 and am puzzled by the floating windows. Is there any way to force them to 'snap' into place Ala FCP I'm an FCP editor at present but am just scoping the area f
Re: Media Composer 6 floating windows
by Daniel Frome 8 years ago
Nah, they don't snap like they do on FCP, except if they are really close together sometimes they nudge into place. It's something that really annoyed me when first using MC, but once you create a set
my guess to what will happen to the suite

Was working with Soundtrack first time after the FCP X news today and here's my guess to what will happen to the suite of software that is now FCP studio. FCP X of course is new. Color will be integra

Your comments are why I think they'd never sell the apps as separate programs. They each have a competitor that is better on the high end and possibly on the low end as well. SoundTrackPro has competi

fcp 8 - when can we expect it to be released?
by paul colin 9 years ago
I'm currently using fcp 6.06 and would like to update to fcp 7. However if fcp 8 will be released soon me thinks I probably should wait until 8 is released, unless it takes apple many months for this
Re: fcp 8 - when can we expect it to be released?
by Charles Wren 8 years ago
tbh FCP and all NLEs include keying filters as an added bonus, they'll never specialise in it, that's what compositing packages are built for. Check out Nuke, nodes give you unlimited control over you
Could the Shake UI & tool set be merged into 'Motion 5'?
by Charles Wren 9 years ago
Apple seems to have taken Motion very seriously in the last 2 version (Motion 4 especially) with the introduction of shadows, reflections, 3D planes & particles and even optical flow retiming. Whilst
Re: Could the Shake UI & tool set be merged into 'Motion 5'?
by Arnie Schlissel 9 years ago
It works in FCP and AE, too! Did you see the stand alone Conduit lacks certain features, like the ability to input a mask directly into a filter to limit or control the filter, but you can fudge a lot

Also, there's a Rain macro on the Shake installer disk in the "Cookbook" macros folder (Image Macros Rain Macro) which you could install and play around with. The funny thing is, rain (drops, at least

AVCHD - Restoring FCP Projects

Re: AVCHD - Restoring FCP Projects
by Robb Harriss 9 years ago
Sure. Take a look at the manual under "relinking media." And get yourself another hard drive to store the original files on--get them off your machine. Non-linear: all the time and nothing but.
Using non pro LED lights with HD Camcorder
by Sherwood Ball 10 years ago
I'm thinking of buying the Canon Legria HFS 100 and buying the new expensive LED bulbs from Home Depot for a run and gun garage rig. Will there be a synch issue between the lights and the camera If so
Re: Using non pro LED lights with HD Camcorder
by Hunter Mossman 10 years ago
I don't know of any sync issues but I have found that the less expensive consumer led systems tend to give off a color that isn't as appealing on the skin. I would at least recommend getting something
