What Exactly are Virtual Reality Studios?

The Changing Impact of Color in Video & How to Apply it to Cinematic Storytelling
Color is a simple concept for everyone to grasp, even if they don’t understand color engineering or science. Compared to other technical fields-for example, computer security-you can talk about color with lots of people, because everyone can confidently say, ‘that’s red’ or, ‘that’s reddish-orange,’ and can answer questions like ‘What’s your favorite color?’ People are willing to discuss color and color associations even when they don’t know anything technical.

Remote Video Collaboration Workflows Built for Any Budget
Let me kick this post off by saying that it is way overdue. Thanks to the cluster that is Covid-19, there’s now a bundle of literature and how-to videos on the web about setting up remote video collaboration workflows for people in post-production, but most rely on investing in a decent amount of hardware and/or software that aren’t always in a project’s (or freelancer’s) budget.

Canon 5D Mark III Firmware 1.2.1- HDMI Clean Output and the Atomos Ninja 2 recorder.
by Barry AnderssonRecently Canon announced the latest firmware update for the 5D Mark III camera (Version 1.2.1). The exciting new feature here for video is the clean HDMI out on the camera that allows you to record the signal to an external recorder. The clean HDMI out sends the video feed over the HDMI cable without any of the menus or markings so it can be recorded and used for your edit. I chose the Atomos Ninja 2 external recorder to use on two of my recent productions and it works like a charm. The HDMI feed goes directly into the recorder and is recorded onto a SSD drive. If you have primarily been using DSLR cameras SSD drives may be new to you. They are solid state drives that are about the size of an iPhone. If this is your first time using SSD drives there are a few things you should know. You need an adapter or device to connect to your computer. There are two that I have really been liking.

How Virtual Reality in Vectorworks Software Supports Live Event Production
From concerts and plays to exhibits and conventions, live event production designers do it all. With the wide variety of venues and client demands, production designers operate in a high-pressure industry where they have to be flexible and able to adapt to given settings, which can be difficult when you’re hundreds of miles away from the site and your design associates are unable to travel to the venue and see what you’re working with. Traditional documentation can help designers gain an understanding of what they’re working with, but it’s not the same as experiencing a physical space for themselves. However, with the rise of virtual reality (VR) technology, there is an improvement to this problem.
