    Ink and Piracy -- the filmmakers get it.

    Check this out.

    When the producers find out that Ink is being massively downloaded, they put a link of their site and ask the downloaders to pay whatever they feel like if they want.

    I chose the 1.8 because it was sharper than the 1.4, but sometimes I wish I had the 1.4 to squeeze out a tad more light performance.

    No problems using the AF lenses -- just don't get a G lens.

    The problem with multicamera shoots is that they're impossible to light dramatically. That's why sit-com and soap-opera lighting is so flat -- and why it's derogatory for film lighting!

    Vegas 9c (x64) / Windows 7 (x64) / Raylight

    I installed the new Vegas to a new Windows installation (both 64-bit), but haven't been able to see footage with either the latest Raylight or the Raylight Ultra demo.

    Red Announcement Disappointment

    Nothing but irrelevant specs and renders(!?) for products that STILL have no release date.

    That was like a big F U to the Red community.

    After Effects easily swaps several gigs of RAM on the same system. Vegas never swaps, despite very large HD edits.
