I had the good fortune of meeting Terilyn Shropshire, ACE, when I moderated a fantastic roundtable discussion that was set-up by Simon Smith. That’s how I wrangled her to do this interview that had been requested by SOOO many readers since the premiere – or maybe even the first trailers – of The Old Guard hit on Netflix.

Terilyn’s credits include another recent killer action flick with a strong female action lead, Miss Bala. She was an additional editor on A Wrinkle in Time (which was a previous Art of the Cut interview). She edited the extraordinary documentary,

Take, for example, the Warp Stabilizer: Originally introduced in the Creative Suite 6 version, this then-new way of stabilizing footage has seen only small updates since then, and has been added to Adobe Premiere Pro as well.

This week on MacBreak Studio, I demonstrate how easy and downright fun it is to animate a camera in Motion to fly though a 3D scene using the powerful Framing behavior.

Atomos and Blackmagic Design and their respective compressed raw formats are fighting for dominance. Atomos has opened the ProRes RAW door to more than a handful of hybrid cameras: Sony A7s III, Nikon z6, and the Sigma FP, to name a few. Giving these hybrid cameras capabilities more often reserved for larger and heavier rigs.

Recently, Atomos also gave the tiny box-shaped ZCam the option to record ProRes Raw. I shot a bunch of video for this look at ProRes RAW from the
