Remixing Cinema with Soderbergh, Spielberg, and Me
By: Kylee Wall on Sep 22, 2014 at 8:32:18 pm

Today, one of my favorite directors, Steven Soderbergh, posted a really great blog about “staging” in film, which is meant to mean how all the elements of a scene work together to tell a visual story. To illustrate his point, he took ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and remixed it a little: converted to black and white, all music, sound and dialogue removed with a different soundtrack alongside it to help you focus on the staging — the direction, the length of each shot, how the cuts work. It’s pretty much as awesome as you might think, so you should...

resolve and avid detecting native framerate of source and online conforming 1920(+) (4K)
By: Scott Freeman on Sep 14, 2014 at 9:54:38 pm

I would love it if Resolve by default could online conform non-standard framerates and choose the proper frames per second for each video source file master. I have noticed for some codec and wrappers, Resolve will not properly detect the standard native framerate of the master source file. I must use the clip properties in Resolve to manually choose the proper standard-frame-rate for these source masters for an online conform. Resolve currently for me will attempt to conform these sources and will not flag anything in the timeline - thus, Resolve is using the wrong timecode count metadata in the...

LTFS and Incompatible standalone and library tape Formats
By: Tim Jones on Aug 26, 2014 at 2:41:51 pm

I've been sitting on this for a while since we uncovered the issue, but there have been no updates in the LTFS world concerning tapes formatted in a standalone drive and those formatted using a library-based solution. Therefore, I'm sharing with you folks. There is a serious compatibility problem between LTFS tapes created in a standalone tape drive and those created in a tape library. A number of users have reported both formatting and mounting issues when moving from a standalone environment to a library-based environment.

10Gb and SMB3 really rocks
By: Steve Modica on Jul 30, 2014 at 3:04:19 pm

We got RSS working on our 10Gb cards a few days ago. This is a feature that splits up data coming into the card into multiple queues. Then we can let different CPUS handle pulling in that data and passing it up the stack. We found what we figured we'd find: When we setup multiple streams, we see data in multiple queues. We see more cpus involved in the work, and things go a lot faster. What surprised us was how great this made SAMBA. When we tested SMB3 with Yosemite, we were able to hit line rate (10Gb/sec) between...

How Kevin Spacey Helped Me Get Started In Editing

Not that it's terribly widely known I guess, but the logo is burned into my brain (a folder within a folder within a folder from years ago, but it was there.) In 2002, Kevin Spacey started a website called Trigger Street Productions (now called Trigger Street Labs ) for unrepresented writers and filmmakers. It was pretty phenomenal at...
