Learn VEGAS Pro 16 – 360 Video

360° video cameras have become more powerful in recent years, and talk about how the format is going to redefine audience expectations is as pervasive as ever. The ability to immerse viewers in a story is appealing to creative professionals at every level, but the logistics associated with creating a real virtual environment have often proved to be too much of a challenge for directors and editors. That’s just part of the reason that full 360° video support has been included with VEGAS Pro 16. 360º video productions can now be edited to meet the growing demands of the emerging VR Continue reading "Learn VEGAS Pro 16 – 360 Video"

Learn VEGAS Pro 16 – HDR Color Management

HDR is a topic we’ve covered in great detail on PVC, and the appeal of the format can be simplified by saying that if 4K is about more pixels, HDR is about better pixels, and that’s a difference audiences have come to recognize. It’s also the reason that VEGAS Pro 16 now offers an end-to-end workflow for High Dynamic Range color. VEGAS Pro users can now deliver HDR content with stunning color and detail along with important metadata. The software is also compatible with professional HDR-capable cameras, monitors, and other hardware. VEGAS Pro 16 has been re-engineered to support Continue reading "Learn VEGAS Pro 16 – HDR Color Management"

Learn VEGAS Pro 16 – How to Use the New Stabilization and Motion-tracking Features

We’ve highlighted where and how VEGAS Pro is different from the competition, but VEGAS Pro16 takes these distinctions to a new level. The product comes loaded with powerful new video editing features that are designed to open up new creative opportunities for professionals, but does so in both form and function. The major upgrades for VEGAS are centered on the support for emerging formats like HDR and 360 editing, but new stabilization and motion-tracking features give users the ability to isolate moving objects in their scene. Users can easily track their motion and “pin” text to them or apply color Continue reading "Learn VEGAS Pro 16 – How to Use the New Stabilization and Motion-tracking Features"

Using Schneider Custom 8” Long ND Grad on “Drive” – a 56-Hour Single Shot Film

“Why don’t you get a right-hand car?” cinematographer Paul Reuter suggested to director James Rasin. The two had been talking about his friend’s inventive and very personal concept of shooting a journey from Manhattan in NY to the Pacific Ocean in L.A., no cuts. It would encapsulate the American dream, the free spirit of getting into the car and just driving to the coast. They called it Drive.

No stranger to inventive shooting – Reuter has captured what he calls “suspecting and unsuspecting individuals– from Havana to the West Bank, from submarines to jet planes and everywhere

Looking back on 2017, ahead to 2018 – PVC Roundtable Discussion

Scott Simmons
The Editblog
When I got to looking back over 2017 I’m stuck by the fact that I’m not really struck by anything particularly ground-breaking or earth-shattering that came down the line this year, at least as far as film and video post-production goes. This roundtable discussion is something PVC has done before and it’s fun to read back on them as there is a lot of diverse talent that contributes to ProVideo Coalition. Reading back on writer’s thoughts from last year, I don’t think much has changed this year. Thinking back on my year of work I know

“How you effectively plan and execute and follow through your pre-production process determines the success of your production!” The pre-production process in film, television and video has long been known to be the foundation in which a production could succeed or fail.

The Future of Hard Drives – A PVC Roundtable Discussion

Whether we’re talking about archive, workflow, storage or the post-production process itself, more and more is headed to the cloud. That means service providers are now more focused on cloud storage and internet speeds, not the access to the service in the first place. It also means the next step is to figure out how to merge most, if not all content to the digital realm in the sky versus keeping the content on a drive in a drawer or closet somewhere. However, this process isn’t going to happen overnight. The multitude of review and approval options for video pros
