by Madeleine HammondOver the past couple of years, the popularity of video has exploded all across our computer monitors, and any marketer worth their weight in salt knows the power a solid video campaign can have in your strategy. One of the many reasons video is such a great marketing tool is because it provides you with so many metrics to measure, indicating the success of your campaign. These facts and figures will help you garner an impression of how well you’re meeting objectives.
Defined as the computer-generated simulation of a three dimensional image or environment via a helmet or other piece of electronic equipment, Virtual Reality is becoming the fastest-growing medium for entertainment. Now virtual reality is joining forces with Hollywood to provide consumers with a brand-new approach to storytelling. With it viewers can wear a special headset or watch via a mobile device and change what they’re looking at, seeing everything that was filmed, in 360 degrees, in real time.
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.
The M&E industry was one of the most heavily impacted when the pandemic hit. Demand for online content for entertainment and education increased dramatically while in-person video shoots were put on hold to allow for social distancing. The industry needed to shift almost overnight to computer-generated animations, visual effects, and repurposing content libraries. As the pandemic stretched from months into years, organizational and talent resources became much more decentralized and distributed geographically and across the various technology platforms used. And with that, the ever-increasing amounts of data followed the same pattern – outgrowing decentralized and distributed data management models.
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. The beautiful thing is we live in a time where tech is very much on our side, so working remotely with creative teams in real-time is feasible for almost anyone with a decent computer and internet connection. Below I’ve outlined three possible remote collaboration workflows that will work for any budget, including free!
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.
