    ADDED 8/21/10 TRAILER. Yay!



    ADDED 3/28/10 TEASER





    there's something dark in ... "SHADY TEXAS"



    "Beacon" the web series* pilot / teaser for "SHADY TEXAS"
    The * is for the fact that as of right now there are no plans for producing the rest of the series. We made the pilot for fun, as a stand alone (albeit an unresolved standalone), as part of a larger project (more on that later), and in the off chance someone might want to option it or produce the rest of the series online or elsewhere.

    (individuals to be named soon).

    So better IMAGE quality with more features in Premiere and After Effects. This is hard for me to say having worked with FCP since 2004. I dabbled with Premiere a bit before that but only a few times and it's so different now.

    Yeah, I'm still on my ol' Avid... work with a guy who uses AE quite a bit, and we've figured out a good workflow, but it's still tricky sometimes... and as for mastering, yeah Premiere has some advantages.

    Ian, the newspaper was all Smithville - they know how to hype it up ... OK I do too. But they're way on top of this kind of stuff in addition to being awesome in every other way. And it will be a full 8 to 10-ish minute "webisode". Not just trailer. The story will be a bit more of a tease though in so much that it will introduce some of the mystery but leave it unresolved until the next episode (which currently there is no plan to make ... muahhahahaha!)

    Sounds cool. Can't wait to see it.

    So you're still on a Mac or switched to Premier on PC?

    Still on a mac. I feel blasphemous liking something over FCP. I will have to spend some extra time with some of my iphone apps that do things like control my home stereo in order to feel clean again.

    I'm really curious about this. I've had CS4 for some time and just haven't gotten into using it beyond specific necessary situations, which has been only twice thus far. Are you saying you've been color grading in FCP and it doesn't work with Cineform well? What about Color and what about the new ProRes 4444 codec? Would that make a difference with the issue you're referring to?

    Wow missed this question, was about to bump the thread because I just added photos.

    Mike it's not that the color grading in FCP doesn't work worse with Cineform than it does with anything else. It's 2 things:

    1. 10 bit color grading in FCP is extremely limited. Especially when it comes to any sort of power windows or relighting. You will likely see vingettes stair stepped with banding for example.

    2. FCP doesn't work well with unknown / non FCP codecs. You just can't do all the real time monitoring and rendering with Cineform because FCP is made to work better with apple codecs. So you have to bring your neoscene stuff into a proress timeline and render it in pro res if you want it to play on an external monitor fore example, then duplicate your timeline when you are done, change the codec to cineform, re-render then output.

    BUT ....

    The workflow I described above has been to processor intensive. I just can't get premiere to run worth a flip on my macbook pro. It's almost like a practical joke application. It opens and looks fancy, but literally does nothing.

    Anyway .... pictures with links to galleries added at the top posts. BUMP (sort of).
