[videos] Confession: I haven't watched this yet. It's on my Sunday morning list. You might want to watch this interview too because Randy Ubilios helped mainstream non-linear editing, starting back in the 1990s.
At first, I though this article was a boring rundown of colors. But it's actually a pretty good reminder of how color palettes are built. I'm ambivalent on the 'influence your life' bit, as they relate to our craft.
We've spent the last 3 years designing a killer little shared storage device for color, editorial, and VFX workflows: we call it the Jellyfish. With an integrated database server, it's perfect for Resolve's groundbreaking Collaborative Workflow.
Our craft keeps changing. And growing. Learn about updates to your favorite software. Discover new tools to help you work faster or more creatively. Build your toolchest with new techniques and approaches.
Jonny's usual monster round-up of resources. From stand-alone training titles to extensive clippings of Twitter advice. Shout to him for featuring my 5-hour Resolve title and Mixing Light's new Flight Paths.
A color grading plug-in for FCPx and Adobe, Hawaiki aims to simplify color correction. This post rounds ups its features and the use cases. Interesting: One click balancing on white, black, and (this is the interesting) skin tone balance.
[webinar] Editor Scott Simmons has been editing a project in Resolve 15. It's his first attempt at using Resolve exclusively as an NLE. This seminar shares his experience and offers tips. July 24. Register to be reminded.
In 2015 Mixing Light published a 'hack' for forcing your favorite LUTs to permanently display your own LUTs in the Lumetri pulldowns. In 2018, hacking is no longer necessary. Get the details. (free, in front of the paywall)
Don't get me wrong. I love Apple. And the iWatch is changing my life (another story). But I'm glad I'm off that platform professionally. The details of how their Authorized Service Provider program works is astonishingly terrible. Especially if these rigs generate income for you.
This article has the numbers on the decline of physical media. I admit: I love the quality of HDR / DolbyVision UHD BluRay. But beyond a few reference discs, my UHD collection is being built on AppleTV - with its history of auto-uprading your existing library (and I do tend to shop in the 'Under $8' store, but won't buy it if it isn't HDR).
A month ago I shared a proposed set of rules by the EU that fundamentally changes the internet. It appears a few others agreed and the EU is stepping back - in spite of big name support. Read on for the details.
Th- th- th- that's all folks! See you next Sunday!
