Congrats to Kirk and Angus for recieving the Editing Oscar statuette for their work on The Social Network.
Shot with MX Reds, edited on FInal Cut Pro, the norm for Angus for the last few years, with DI by Michael Cioni at LightIron digital. This proves that FCP is no longer relegated to second class status. Yes, I know that Avid has ruled here, but it was nice to finally see a member of the FCP community on the Oscar stage,
on Wednesday, I will cover some of the ins and outs on the New Thunderbolt Technology that Intel and Apple have been working on for the last 3 years. This 10Gbps connection is set to forever change portable editing and onset data management.
Its NAB time, and there are a number of announcements over the weekend.
Adobe is announcing the Release date for CS5 today and it is down right amazing. The new Roto Tool in AE is worth the price of the entire suite.
ARRI is in Full Court Press with the release of ProRes Recording internally in the Alexa camera at NAB, RED has announced that they will be showing working Epic Models at the Red UserGroup Event on Wed. Mitch Gross from Abel Cinetech showed 2 new cameras yesterday, Aanton's Hybrid Film and HD model and the amazing Phantom Flex that records @ 2560 x 1600
Records up to
2800 fps @1080
6100 fps @ 720
The camera's HQ MODE .eliminates the Need to Black Balance before and after every shot.
Internal mechanical shutter
444 DL and Smpte TC out from Camera
3D is everywhere just like me.
I am presenting in the Post Pit @ 2pm and will be on the floor at the Aja booth on Tuesday Morning.
