The Cinema 4D R17 Lens Distortion Tool
The Cinema 4D R17 Lens Distortion Tool
Maxon introduced a number of new features in Cinema 4D R17 when it was released last year. While the Motion Tracker is a fantastic tool to track footage and composite 3D elements, often wide angle footage introduces perspective errors in the final rendered image. Unless the user knows what camera was used to capture the source footage, the focal length of the lens, and the field of view, correcting that footage, or adding the lens distortion to the 3D elements is a tricky and sometimes frustrating experience.

AJA Ki Pro Rack Helps Journalists Boogie with the Peanuts Gang On-Camera at TIFF
Entertainment journalists got a chance to boogie with the Peanuts gang this fall during Fox's press screening of "The Peanuts Movie" at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Los Angeles based visual effects company BlueScreen LLC, working with Junket Productions and Fox, oversaw the on-site shoot, which captured 60 journalists dancing on-camera to Meghan Trainor's new song from the movie's soundtrack "Feels Better When I'm Dancing." The footage was composited live with a CG scene featuring a Soul Train dance line style of Peanuts characters, played back via AJA Ki Pro Rack. Each take was then recorded to CF cards, which Fox sent to press ahead of the film's debut for use in on-air segments about the movie. Read More

Automatic Duck is back
For a long time, there were three camps of desktop NLE editors. Avid, Final Cut, PremierePro. They didn't talk to each other, and outside of Adobe's own PremierePro, they talk to After Effects. Then, Automatic Duck came along to allow editors to bring their edits into a project that allowed After Effects artists to bring the edits and media into their timeline easily. And now, after a brief hiatus, Automatic Duck Ximport AE allows you to bring your Final Cut X easily into After Effects with much more than just media and duration. Read More

Howard Lukk's Short Film 'Emma' Gets the High Dynamic Range Treatment with Help from DaVinci Resolve
Howard Lukk's Short Film 'Emma' Gets the High Dynamic Range Treatment with Help from DaVinci Resolve
There is something special about "Emma." Not only did the short film have its screening at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, but it was also one of the very first films shot and produced in a High Dynamic Range (HDR) workflow. HDR produces a greater dynamic range of luminosity and allows the cinematographer to capture and display a much wider contrast ratio. And while HDR requires filmmakers to pay more attention to the nuances of shooting, such as lighting, production and costume design and makeup, being able to take advantage of a greater range in color in post production creates truly stunning images more akin to what the human eye sees.
