Optimal Mac Settings for Film Edit - Performanc and Exporting http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15798/optimal-mac-settings-for-film-edit-performanc-and-exporting Mon, 26 Sep 2016 13:11:15 -0600 matt_gh2 15798@/talks/discussions Hey guys,

Thought I'd get your advice and opinions on setting up a new mac for feature film editing. I've been on a Windows machine for some time now, and went through the process of determining the best settings for performance, and the best settings for export. My goal is optimal quality, particularly with export quality. So do you guys have preferred settings you use on your macs for the best editing and exporting results? Will be using FCP 7, FCP X, After Effects, Audition. Also any thoughts on antivirus - needed or not, conflicts with FCP or not?

Thanks, Matt

Best way to edit 4K footage to HD output Premiere Pro iMac http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15728/best-way-to-edit-4k-footage-to-hd-output-premiere-pro-imac Wed, 14 Sep 2016 16:33:10 -0600 webarchitect 15728@/talks/discussions Greetings, and thanks to all who contribute here. I learn something almost daily. While I've read posts in several places on this topic, I've not found consensus, but have run into issues. Here's the scenario:

I'm shooting 4K with the GH4 for all the benefits including punch in, pans, etc. Final output is 1080p. Occasionally I'll mix in some HD footage.

The last project I did was 6.5 mins, but much to my surprise was really dragging down my computer. I wonder if some of you with more experience can suggest a better workflow. I'm hoping to avoid buying a new computer for another year, but will do what I must when I can. Here's what I'm working with:

Premiere Pro CC iMac (Retina 5K, 27 inch, Late 2014) 3.5 GHz Intel Core i5 16 GB 1600 MGz DDR3 AMD Radeon R9 M290X 2048 MB

To create a sequence, I've simply dragged the the first 4k clip to the timeline and let Premiere handle the settings accordingly. I edit, then export as HD.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts and advice!

Corel VideoStudio X7 to X9 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/9804/corel-videostudio-x7-to-x9 Fri, 07 Mar 2014 02:58:49 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 9804@/talks/discussions

PR

Today Corel announced the availability of VideoStudio® Pro X7 and VideoStudio® Ultimate X7. Thanks to performance gains achieved through the addition of 64-bit architecture, the updated creative library and the new touch-friendly instant movie creator, FastFlick™, X7 upholds VideoStudio’s promise to provide the fastest and easiest way to create a broad range of professional quality videos, regardless of editing proficiency.

“VideoStudio has built a reputation for innovation by bringing users of all skill levels cutting-edge tools like 4K support, motion tracking, HTML5 authoring and a wide variety of creative editing tools in one affordable package,” said Greg Wood, Senior Product Manager, Digital Media. “But first and foremost, we strive to provide a program that is fast and easy and that addresses the growing enthusiasm for video in every walk of life, from personal, to sports, to school, to business, and the best way to ensure this is to go straight to the source” added Wood. “VideoStudio X7 was developed based on our extensive customer research. The result – a uniquely powerful, intuitive, fun and relevant editor.”

The enhancements and additions seen in VideoStudio X7 originate from an in-depth study. Corel researchers drew from a wide base of VideoStudio users, learning that performance, speed and even more easy-editing tools were the enhancements users most wanted to see in X7. As a result, VideoStudio introduces the following new features:

New 64-Bit Architecture Brings Dramatic Performance Gains

The new powerful 64-bit architecture removes memory limitations, resulting in dramatic performance gains in a wide variety of scenarios. For example, benchmark testing indicates, rendering HD multitrack projects can be up to 200% faster and rendering 4K projects can be up to 800% faster.

New FastFlick Makes Creating and Sharing Videos a Snap

Creating stylish movies and slideshows is as easy as 1-2-3 with the new FastFlick instant movie maker. Users can launch the touch-friendly app independently of VideoStudio to quickly create their project of choice by simply selecting a template, adding their media, and sharing. Users can upload their videos directly to Facebook, YouTube, Flickr or Vimeo, or they can save them for further editing in VideoStudio.

Updated Content Library Helps Users Explore New Creative Possibilities

VideoStudio X7 includes fresh new templates, frames, and objects as well as two new types of media, backgrounds and color patterns, to give videos a fresh and polished look.

And for special effects enthusiasts, VideoStudio Ultimate X7 includes a powerful, updated-to-64-bit collection of advanced special effects with plug-ins from proDAD, Boris Graffiti and NewBlue, providing over $500 in additional value. With 64-bit power, effects run faster than ever before.

New and Enhanced Tools Streamline the Editing and Sharing Process

User experience was a top priority for VideoStudio X7 development, resulting in more efficient ways to make and share video projects. Key usability enhancements include:

  • Enhanced! Smarter and faster 4K: The Smart Render option now works with UltraHD files resulting in rendering speeds are up to 200% faster than with X6. Users with the latest Intel chips can expect to see performance gains of 170-500% when working with 4K.
  • Enhanced! One-step online sharing: VideoStudio X7 lets users share their videos online in one simple step, no need to leave the program. Users simply select a social media property, choose the settings and post.
  • New! Favorite filters list: Like transitions, filters can now be added to a My Favorites list, saving users’ time when applying specific corrective filters or special effect filters.
  • Enhanced! Batch conversion custom profiles: Custom profiles in Batch Convert allows users to render multiple projects or files at the same time, exactly the way they want.
  • New! Intuitive profile management and customization: Custom profiles are the ideal tool to streamline workflows while still achieving great results. VideoStudio X7 makes it easy for users to create and save custom profiles to match the video properties for each of their cameras. This ensures the best results possible when rendering.
  • Enhanced! Transitions for overlay tracks: By popular request, VideoStudio X7 includes a new transitions category that makes it easier for users to find transitions that work best with their overlay tracks.

Pricing and Availability

VideoStudio Pro X7 and VideoStudio Ultimate X7 are available now in English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Chinese Traditional and Japanese. Suggested retail pricing of VideoStudio Pro X7 is $79.99 (USD/CAN/AUD) / €69.99/ £59.99, VideoStudio Ultimate X7 is $99.99 (USD/CAN/AUD)/ € 89.99/ £79.99. Upgrade pricing is available.

FCPX and iphone, landscape footage shows as portrait on import http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/14403/fcpx-and-iphone-landscape-footage-shows-as-portrait-on-import Sat, 09 Jan 2016 10:14:55 -0700 belfryman 14403@/talks/discussions Sorry, bit below the radar but have students shooting films on their iphones and I'm editing in FCPX and testing it with my wife's phone - I like my android phones myself - the footage that is shot landscape and imports as landscape into imovie and photos shows as portrait in FCPX. Two questions if anyone knows the answers, a) is there a way to get FCPX to see the footage as landscape when importing to save importing to photos and exporting and then importing that file into FCPX which works for some reason and b) if I do the alternative workaround, rotate the footage 90 degrees in the timeline and scale to 180% will it be scaling a reduced version of the image and be baaad or will it be just stretching the image out to the natural dimensions with no loss of quality? Merci.

Problem with FCP 7 since OSX "El Capitan" http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/14243/problem-with-fcp-7-since-osx-el-capitan Fri, 18 Dec 2015 12:34:48 -0700 gabilourson 14243@/talks/discussions hi btw, I have a quick question for all who like me still use Final Cut 7 (yes I know, many of you get on Premiere or FCP X but I'm an old hand, do not blame me!)

Here is my problem: since I switched to OSX "El Capitan" on my mac pro, my Final Cut Pro displays the rushes in a very dark way, as if there was a gamma adjustment problem. I tried to play with the settings of parameters in every way and I have not found a solution.

At best, the problem appears when the playback bar on the timeline is stopped. And as soon as I put in reading, the image appears as normal.

Any idea ? best regards

Lightworks topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/4804/lightworks-topic Wed, 03 Oct 2012 18:49:02 -0600 goanna 4804@/talks/discussions

Our solution was to avoid rewriting the Windows-specific code at all (it was, after all, tried, tested and optimized). Instead, we decided to move it to a new operating-system dependent layer which we engineered to have an OS independent interface.

Once this was complete, we were then able to begin work on a Linux implementation of that same layer. In essence, the Lightworks code is now split in two - the OS-independent code (eg. editing, play-engine, etc) which uses the OS-dependent code (eg. file access, threading, etc).

The OS independent code accounts for about 97% of the total codebase. The bulk of the work in porting to Linux was actually in re-engineering the existing code, not in writing the Linux-specific layer.

Linux of course doesn't have [Windows'] Direct3D, so we had to reimplement all the Linux GPU specific code using OpenGL.

This development has been long-awaited. Once again, risk-averse developers are showing us how OSes, once the mainstay of IT revenue, are losing relevance.

What's next - Lightworks for Android? -only a few lines of code away.

  • improvements to the 3D Camera Tracker effect
  • ability to find instances of missing fonts, effects, and footage
  • snapping to layer features, including anchor points and masks

What's the best DVD Authoring software for Windows http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/4252/whats-the-best-dvd-authoring-software-for-windows Wed, 15 Aug 2012 12:18:17 -0600 peternap 4252@/talks/discussions I couldn't find anything here about it, but I've been making my DVD's straight out of Avid. I'm not using Avid anymore so I need to find a good authoring tool.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Adobe Creative Suite 6, CS6 topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/2841/adobe-creative-suite-6-cs6-topic Thu, 12 Apr 2012 01:50:27 -0600 sohus 2841@/talks/discussions CS6 Production Premium applications:

  • Adobe Encore CS6
  • Adobe Media Encoder CS6
  • Adobe Story Plus
  • After Effects CS6
  • Audition CS6
  • Photoshop CS6
  • Prelude CS6
  • Premiere Pro CS6
  • Speedgrade CS6

  • An optimized Mercury Playback Engine that is faster than before in software-only mode, and also sports a broader range of choices in graphics cards.

  • Adobe Mercury Transmit gives Adobe I/O hardware partners, such as AJA, Black Magic Design, Bluefish444, Matrox, and MOTU direct access to the Mercury Playback Engine. Using external monitors, you’ll get full-screen playback while maintaining all the real-time performance benefits of the Mercury Playback Engine.
  • Warp Stabilizer and Rolling Shutter Repair, which were previously only in Adobe After Effects.
  • Unlimited cameras in Multicam.
  • New and enhanced editing tools such as adjustment layers very reminiscent of After Effects, trimming directly in the Program Monitor, and a redesigned Audio Mixer. You can now double click to apply effects to selected clips.
  • Three-Way Color Corrector effect, that uses GPU acceleration
  • Adobe Media Encoder is now fully 64 bit software with a much expanded preset list and more efficient batch encoding that makes multiscreen delivery a breeze.

After Effects part

  • Native support for Adobe SpeedGrade .Look files, cineSpace .csp files, and overrange IRIDAS .cube files.
  • Not only is Mocha still there, but you can launch it directly from within After Effects.
  • Global RAM cache. This is a vastly improved frame caching system that allows you to try different options and Undo without a penalty in productivity, as well as render and cache a comp’s work area in the background.
  • Persistent Disk Cache. Previews done in a previous session are saved and immediately available the next time you open a project.
  • New graphics pipeline. With more efficient use of OpenGL, the work environment in After Effects is more highly responsive and smoother. You’ll get faster manipulation of layers with graphical overlays such as masks, motion tracker points, and motion paths. Depending on the hardware, functions may be speeded by anywhere from 1.5 to 16 times!
  • Intelligent 3D Camera Tracker effect.
  • Ray-traced 3D rending engine giving you the capability to quickly design fully ray-traced geometric text and shape layers in 3D space. Pair this engine with, say an nVidia Quadro 2000, and you’ll see over 10 times the performance over CPU-only rendering by a stock Intel i7 3960X processor!
  • Variable mask feather lets you set any number of points along a closed maks and define the width of the feather on a per-point basis
  • Pro Import, previously available as a separate product from Automatic Duck, is now included with After Effects CS6.
  • Effects that were previously 8bpc now support 16bpc or 32 bit float including all of the HD plug-ins of the included CycoreFX HD Suite.

Moire http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13410/moire- Sat, 18 Jul 2015 19:46:22 -0600 peternap 13410@/talks/discussions Probably the wrong catagory so please move it if necessary. I was hoping 4k was going to cut down on moire but it really hasn't. The AX100 gets stunning video but I still have the psydillic shirt (power line, building edge, etc) issue and can't figure how to correct it in post. I'm using cs5.5 mostly. Any guidance.
