It’s hot, it’s muggy and we’re still having to be socially distant or staying at home or quarantined depending on where you are. Unless you’re in one of those parts of the world that are in the cold days of winter then you have your own unique weather patterns to deal with.

Let’s start off with Boris FX as the folks at Boris have been very busy.

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,

We’re back, and continuing with sharing movies we created for earlier versions of After Effects that are no longer being published by Lynda or LinkedInLearning. We found that many of those movies were still relevant to the current version, so we want to share them to help round out your knowledge of Adobe After Effects.

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. The movies below are designed to get you Continue reading “After Effects Classic Course: Warp Stabilizer”

Animating a 3D Camera in Motion

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.

Using a fun hand-drawn style template from MotionVFX.com (project 470 I you are interested) in which I removed the original camera that was animated with keyframes and also simplified the project a bit in order to improve playback performance, I decide where I want the camera to go, add the framing behavior and trim it to my desired start and stop times, and then drag the element that Continue reading “Animating a 3D Camera in Motion”

Adobe has been bringing performance improvements thick and fast of late, with new GPU hardware acceleration for Windows in May, faster launch times for Premiere Pro on macOS in June, and now significant optimization for Intel Quick Sync.

Is the film industry really ready for 12K? What it takes to create impressive sensors for cinema cameras

Recent insights about the RED Komodo 6K S35 have gotten lots of cinematographers excited, but the new URSA Mini Pro 12K Cinema Camera has taken that excitement to the next level. The future arrives faster than ever, but was it really that long ago that we debated the merits of 4K?

That arrival and excitement will have to wait until more people can get their hands on these cameras, but in the awkward gap between a product’s announcement and its availability, there’s often a lot of pressure to speculate about how useful an unknown thing will be.
