  • FMC Book Review – Greenscreen Made Easy

    Tweet I recently was offered a job to shoot some greenscreen interviews for one of my clients. My palms began to sweat as this was one of my top “feed my family” clients. What if the lighting wasn’t right? What if I did it wrong? What if??? Sure I had done work like this before but mostly for my own content. There was no stress involved. No one hovering over my shoulder. Luckily for me I had my copy of […]

  • FMC Review – Episode Encoder is a rock star!

    Tweet After hearing all the great comments on Telestream’s Episode Encoder, I decided to pick up a copy and used it on a recent job. Not only was it simple to use, but it is highly customizable! All the compression settings are good to go in default mode but if you love to fine tune and tinker you can until your hearts content. From filters like sharpening, RGB, and HSV to adding a watermark, the Episode Encoder has it all! […]

  • FMC Review – Nveil for Final Cut Pro

    Tweet After hearing some great things about the creativeness of the Nveil plug in for Final Cut Pro I had to test drive it. Inside the plug in are 60 “veils” that you can use to make some really cool, hip effects on the fly with your footage. The Nveil folks are also doing a special introductory price of just $99. They will be offering more “veils” free each month and an After Effects version and a stand alone version […]

  • FMC Review – Screencapturing with Jing!

    Tweet A friend of mine asked me recently, “How do I take a snapshot of my screen.” While you can do this with any pc or mac very easily, there are a few really good programs out there that make it even easier. Easier how? How about taking a snap of your favorite webpage to show your designer, and also being able to draw or add comments? Then uploading it to a free web server to send them a link? […]

    FMC Review –Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 is ready for Primetime

    Tweet It’s been amazing to me seeing folks on various social networks like Twitter and Facebook pondering the negatives of Adobe’s new upgrade to its CS video production pipeline.

  • FMC Review: EditGroove’s UserMatic

    Tweet One thing I hate is the dreaded beach balls in Final Cut Pro. Just when I get a good rhythm going that darned beach ball pops up and causes me to trash my preferences. It’s my biggest pet peeve about using Final Cut Pro.

    FMC Review – Adobe Lightroom 2 – Make your ordinary photos extraordinary with a few clicks

    Tweet For $300 dollars I can take my wife to a nice show in Vegas, pay half my car payment, or make my photos look like a professional took them. Ever since the birth of my son I have a renewed sense of photography. Yes I took classes in college but that way ages ago and we use something called film in those days.

  • FMC Book Review – The Art and Science of Digital Compositing

    FMC Book Review – The Art and Science of Digital Compositing

    Tweet At first glance Ron Brinkmann’s book The Art and Science of Digital Compositing might resemble a bible. Its sheer size is a bit daunting. However, just as the Bible was written to inspire and produce a solid foundation for followers of the faith, this book does the same for those interested in the world of compositing. In all I have ever been involved in, be it football or filmmaking, without a solid foundation under my belt I would have […]
