Ok, I am back once again.
Those that know me, understand that some of my clients are reticent to having me posting/ blogging while working on their long term projects, so if I periodaclly fall off my blog here on the Cow, know that I am working, not just avoiding all of you.
Last Week I was lucky enough to be brought in as one of the guest speakers at Vistek's ProFusion2012 Event. < http://bit.ly/ProFusion
Billed as the largest Tv Technology show in Canada, to my eyes it was, not to mention it is one of the better mid sized trade shows I have been to. ProFusion2012 seems a little odd, covering both the still and video marketplace, when it shows what a vibrant cross over market Toronto has and how the world of imaging for still and video has dramatically changed while preserving the need for both disciplines.
It was also good to see Alex Buono from SNL, Jeff Schewe, Dougas Spotted-Eagle, and to meet Greg Gorman in addition to talking with friends from Sim Video, TheCameraDept, Arri, Dashwood 3D, ToolsonAir, Fujinon and others.
FCPX celebrates one year.
Wow, it's only been a year since FCPX came out, and I still hear the vitriol spewing out at Apple. Get Over It people, either use FCPX or choose one of the alternatives. I had to switch to Premier Pro just because I was just starting work on 2 year project that required workflows and tools that FCP lacked.
Adobe's CS6 was just into early beta at that point, and with their help I was able to create a solid workflow for that project, even though 3D was not technically a full part of the CS6 release. Adobe is going out of their way to make contact and examine every possible senario for the Premier editors, and from my perspective doing an excellent job of it. While I admit that I set my PPro to look and act like FCP, I have been slowly changing back to the PPro defaults as a work on newer segments of that project.
However, for the Record, I still use the FCPX / Compressor workflow for certain things i work on, most of all transcoding.
I have a workflow set up to take Alexa 4444 ProRes files and with a couple of clicks, add a LUT, drop on a Timecode reader and then burn them to h.264 for iPad dailies. When I add a Matrox Compress HD card hiding out in an M-Logic TB Chassis to the mix and this laptop based setup allows me to do "faster than realtime" conversions for a dailies workflow.
More to come.
