I have a complex car model, complete with the interior mechanical parts and everything, and I'm trying to cut a quadrant out of it. I know that you can use boole to essentially "cut" holes into object

There are several ways to do it: 1) save as a JPEG in Illustrator, but you'll need to do all of your size conversions in Illustrator first and convert to RGB if its CMYK. Photoshop has really decent i

Thanks for the help! I will request the pixel dimensions from the tech team and base the frame size upon that. I will have different files for each individual screen that I will map out using MadMappe

Canon XL2 / 60i / Slow Motion
by Michael Sirois 11 years ago
Wow, the "subject" was tough to describe. I wrote Canon XL2 60i Slow Motion because my question encompasses all three. So, I shoot in 24pa, and I edit in FCP in a 24 timeline, and I'm trying on honing

I think 40% sounds pretty good. I'm about to test it out now. I had frame-blending off, as I've heard from many people that it's not what you want to do when trying to achieve slow-mo. There is a sett
