by Rob Womack 4 years ago
That's it! I'm going to remember you in my memoirs, Dan. So, normalizing the vector is what I currently don't get. You normalize it to make it a unit vector of length 1. So, if my distance is 3.45678
Dynamically sized bounding box confounded by rotation

So, if I want my bounding box to follow the object behind other objects and be affected by the depth of field of the camera, I'm going to have to fake it then, right That's why I was translating into

My biggest issues with FCP-X is that for all intents and purposes, it is an iMovie update not FCP, and that it does not fit into any professional workflow with ease. Unless of course, you color correc

FCP project won't open from Finder

Peculiar behavior: Final Cut stops opening projects double-clicked in the finder, after being open for a while. It's inconsistent, so I can't give steps to reproduce, but it happens often. When it hap

It only does this in Final Cut on a variety of projects that share the same footage files. Quitting FCP restores the normal behavior, so I don't think it's an OS issue. I just have to go through each

One of the problems with using hard drives for long term storage is that if they sit idle, the components can sometimes fail, or so I have read. I recently bought a Drobo, and it seems that this might
