The Mill Introduces Blackbird Camera Car Rig for Photo Real CG Cars — June 24, 2016

The Mill Introduces Blackbird Camera Car Rig for Photo Real CG Cars

In collaboration with JemFX, Performance Filmworks and Keslow Camera, the Mill teamed created The Mill BLACKBIRD, the first fully adjustable car rig that creates photoreal CG cars. Acting as a production tool to inspire car brands, agencies and film-makers to do things in new, innovative and efficient ways, The Mill BLACKBIRD sets out to transform the way automotive content is made – it’s a car rig that can be shot at any time, in any location, without the need to rely on a physical car.

The Mill

The Mill BLACKBIRD® inspires and expands creative opportunities, offering a truly flexible production tool without sacrificing any quality or direction.

The Mill BLACKBIRD from The Mill on Vimeo.

The Mill BLACKBIRD® is able to capture quality footage and data due to its camera array and tailor-made stabilisation unit, engineered in collaboration with Performance Filmworks’ legendary, multi award winning technician, Lev Yevstratov.

The Mill_02

A combination of high dynamic range imagery and 3D laser scanning generates a virtual version of the environment, producing 100% realistic CG renderings. The Mill has taken this a step further, developing a bespoke BLACKBIRD® AR application that allows you to see the intended vehicle in CG, tracked live over the rig on location.

Creative Cloud pro video & audio tools at NAB Show 2016 — April 13, 2016

Creative Cloud pro video & audio tools at NAB Show 2016

Adobe continues to deliver technology that opens unimagined creative opportunities for video and film production, and now, immersive experiences. In the next release of Creative Cloud – available in early summer – Premiere Pro CC will add new virtual reality capabilities, including “field of view” mode for spherical stitched media.

Edit immediately during ingest allows Premiere Pro CC users to get straight to work, while importing their video and audio files in the background, and switch between native and proxy formats freely when using multiple devices. With initial support for Apple Metal and H.264 hardware decoding (Windows Intel Iris only), you get maximum performance.

 

Access advanced workflows for working with immersive VR & 360 video experiences.

 

The next version of After Effects CC is faster and more reliable from file import and project load through to final render. Scrubbing the timeline, working with complex masks, and editing large numbers of keyframes is now more fluid, thanks to accelerated interface interactions.

 

The next update to Adobe Audition introduces the Essential Sound panel, revolutionizing the way you mix and edit projects. The simple, intuitive interface ensures mixes sound clear, clean, and professional – without needing to be an audio production expert.

 

New media management capabilities coming to Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder let you work the way you want to, on the device you choose.

 

Adobe Character Animator, a new tagging system allows you to quickly prepare characters for animation. Expanded export options make it easy to output to a variety video formats with Adobe Media Encoder.

 

New features in the Lumetri color panel and Lumetri scopes allow you to be more creative with color than ever. New HSL Secondaries allow for quick, intuitive selection of color ranges within a shot, getting the perfect nuance with a few clicks. And the entire collection of beautiful SpeedLooks linear looks help give your media instant personality. Support for color control surfaces like the Tangent Elements, Wave and Ripple enable even advanced colorists to feel right at home, and enhanced Lumetri scopes give instant feedback, with new control over brightness, improved resolution, and support for monitoring Rec2020 colorspace.

 

Follow a fully linear workflow from picture edit completed in Premiere Pro, audio mixed in Audition, and final deliverables rendered and published with Media Encoder.

 

Export animated 3D text and shape layers to Cinema 4D for a roundtrip Live 3D motion graphics workflow. Customize your exported elements in Cinema 4D (Cinema 4D Lite is included with After Effects), save your changes, and see them update live in After Effects via CINEWARE.

 

Adobe Media Encoder help streamline the full production workflow – from initial ingest through to final output. The media browser makes it easy

Keyboard Shortcuts for Premiere Pro CC — March 17, 2016

Keyboard Shortcuts for Premiere Pro CC

This is a list of the keyboard shortcuts that I use most frequently in my day to day editing that help me edit faster. I’m a big fan of keyboard shortcuts. Many commands have keyboard shortcut equivalents, so we can complete tasks with minimal use of the mouse.
Of course, these are the default keyboard shortcuts that come standard in Premiere Pro CC. However, if you’re coming to Premiere Pro CC from another Non-linear editing software, you can set shortcuts to match shortcuts in other software you use.

Apple ProRes Codecs formats — August 12, 2015

Apple ProRes Codecs formats

All Apple ProRes codecs support any frame size (including SD, HD, 2K, 4K, and 5K) at full resolution. The data rates vary based on codec type, image content, frame size, and frame rate. Apple ProRes includes the following formats.
Apple ProRes 4444 XQ
The highest-quality version of Apple ProRes for 4:4:4:4 image sources (including alpha channels). This format has a very high data rate to preserve the detail in high-dynamic-range imagery generated by today’s highest-quality digital image sensors. Apple ProRes 4444 XQ preserves dynamic ranges several times greater than the dynamic range of Rec. 709 imagery. This holds true even against the rigors of extreme visual effects processing in which tone-scale blacks or highlights are stretched significantly. Like standard Apple ProRes 4444, this codec supports up to 12 bits per image channel and up to 16 bits for the alpha channel. Apple ProRes 4444 XQ features a target data rate of approximately 500 Mbps for 4:4:4 sources at 1920×1080 and 29.97 fps.
ProRes 4444 XQ is supported on OS X Mountain Lion v10.8 or later.

Apple ProRes 4444
An extremely high-quality version of Apple ProRes for 4:4:4:4 image sources (including alpha channels). This codec features full-resolution, mastering-quality 4:4:4:4 RGBA color and visual fidelity that is perceptually indistinguishable from the original material. Apple ProRes 4444 is a high-quality solution for storing and exchanging motion graphics and composites, with excellent multigeneration performance and a mathematically lossless alpha channel up to 16 bits. This codec features a remarkably low data rate compared to uncompressed 4:4:4 HD. It has a target data rate of approximately 330 Mbps for 4:4:4 sources at 1920×1080 and 29.97 fps. It also offers direct encoding of and decoding to both RGB and Y’CBCR pixel formats.

Apple ProRes 422 HQ
A higher-data-rate version of Apple ProRes 422 that preserves visual quality at the same high level as Apple ProRes 4444 but for 4:2:2 image sources. With widespread adoption across the video post-production industry, Apple ProRes 422 HQ offers visually lossless preservation of the highest-quality professional HD video that a single-link HD-SDI signal can carry. This codec supports full-width, 4:2:2 video sources at 10-bit pixel depths, while remaining visually lossless through many generations of decoding and reencoding. The target data rate is approximately 220 Mbps at 1920×1080 and 29.97 fps.

Apple ProRes 422
A high-quality compressed codec offering nearly all the benefits of Apple ProRes 422 HQ, but at 66 percent of the data rate for even better multi-stream, real-time editing performance. The target data rate is approximately 147 Mbps at 1920×1080 and 29.97 fps.

Apple ProRes 422 LT
A more highly compressed codec than Apple ProRes 422, with roughly 70 percent of the data rate and 30 percent smaller file sizes. This codec is perfect for environments where storage capacity and data rate are at a premium. The target data rate is approximately 102 Mbps at 1920×1080 and 29.97 fps.

Apple ProRes 422 Proxy
An even more highly compressed codec than Apple ProRes 422 LT, intended for use in offline workflows that require low data rates but full-resolution video. The target data rate is approximately 45 Mbps at 1920×1080 and 29.97 fps.
