Adobe MAX is here so that must mean another update to Adobe Premiere Pro. I know what you’re thinking… didn’t Adobe just have a big update? Yes, they did, the September release. With that release, we got Scene Edit Detection and some new beta stuff. This MAX release gives us more beta stuff and some early access. I guess technically this isn’t a new release of the shipping version then and more of a look at features down the road.

But let me ask this … can an NLE software maker pump out releases and updates too often? Normally I’d

I was NOT going to panic. After all, I had bigger concerns. Like not being stranded on the Alaskan tundra a hundred miles away from the nearest human being. Or being eaten by a bear.

Reversing the Curse: Restoring Vision of Production and Post Professionals 5

It was October 1997, but I remember it like it was yesterday. Life-altering events have a way of doing that to your memory.

I was 40 years old, shooting a wildlife reality show in the wilds of Alaska. Our bush pilot had just landed his tiny Piper Super Cub with its beachball-like “tundra tires” out in the middle of nowhere. That’s because out in the

We have a fun episode of MacBreak Studio for you this week, in which I show you how to create a 3D asteroid field and fly a camera through it.

I’m taking advantage of Motion’s brand new ability to import 3D models that are in the USDZ format – a format most commonly associated with Augmented Reality, but now you can bring those models into Motion, light them, animate them, composite them into scenes, and publish them for use in Final Cut Pro X.

In addition to importing 3D models, Motion now comes with a library of 60 built-in 3D Continue reading “Replicating and Animating 3D Models in Motion”

After Effects Classic Course: 3D Camera Tracking


This post is by Chris and Trish Meyer from ProVideo Coalition


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




A classic visual effects job is to place a place one planar object (such as a new sign, a video screen, etc.) onto another planar object (such as a wall, a laptop, a cell phone, etc.) while either the camera, the target object, or both are moving. This requires some form of tracking.

In the early days of After Effects we had corner pin tracking, where you tracked the four corners of the target, and warped the new object to fit inside those tracked points. The problem often was that those four points had their own individual jitter Continue reading “After Effects Classic Course: 3D Camera Tracking”

Are you inadvertently clipping your exports from Resolve? I wrote an article about this a while ago, Solutions to Resolve 4: Full data and video levels in DaVinci Resolve – don’t clip your proxies and transcodes. It turns out that this is not the end of the story.

Jean-Pierre Demuynck, an engineer who helped develop the ITU-R BT specifications, drew my attention to a further problem I hadn’t been aware of. That’s what I’ll be sharing with you here.
