The Toaster and Tim's Vermeer

The Toaster and Tim's Vermeer

The inventor of the NewTek Video Toaster was certain that he figured out the secret behind the uncanny realism of one of the world's greatest painters, and certain he could use the same methods to duplicate it. Really? Yes, really. Join us for a conversation with NewTek founder Tim Jenison on the unexpected intersection of art, technology, obsession and the Video Toaster in the wonderfully provocative documentary called Tim's Vermeer.

John Dykstra, ASC: VFX Then and Now

Creative COW recently had the great pleasure of speaking to visual effects pioneer John Dykstra, whose work first came to prominence on the original Star Wars. Dykstra received his first Academy Award for his work on Star Wars, and, the same year, won an Academy Scientific and Engineering Award for the Dykstraflex motion-control camera that made so many of Star Wars' effects possible. Join us as he shares behind the scenes on Star Wars, speaks about his transition from an artist to a VFX supervisor, and gives us his thoughts on the state of VFX today.

Creating the 3D in Gravity

Creating the 3D in Gravity

Gravity, the highly-acclaimed, intensely emotional space thriller, has been hailed as some of the - if not the VERY - best 3D footage ever seen on the big screen. This has led to some surprise when learning that Gravity was NOT shot in 3D. However, it wasn't entirely converted in post either. It featured an innovative and unique workflow that incorporated 3D conversion during production as well as a complex integration with 3D VFX. In a conversation with Prime Focus World, we find out how they did it.

VFX Titans Remember Ray Harryhausen

VFX Titans Remember Ray Harryhausen

"When we grieve Ray Harryhausen's passing, we are at least in part grieving perhaps the last living link to the earliest days of movie visual effects," says Creative COW's Debra Kaufman. She spoke to many of today's VFX giants who were inspired by Ray, including Phil Tippett, Richard Edlund, Jeffrey A. Okun and ILM Animation Director Hal Hickel, who says, "Ray Harryhausen's impact on an entire generation (several actually) of filmmakers cannot be overstated, each of them trying again and again to reproduce the wonder they first felt as a child watching Jason fight those skeletons."

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis goes through a new option that will be coming with the next release of Adobe Premiere Pro called Lumetri Looks - which gives you the option to apply .Look files created in Adobe SpeedGrade directly to your footage in Premiere Pro. While this option at first glance seems to only offer the ability to apply presets already created, there is also a way in which you can create your own grades in SpeedGrade, save them as .Look files and then apply those custom grades to your footage or to an adjustment layer in Premiere Pro CS_Next. In this tutorial, Andrew shows the new option and how it may be used with SpeedGrade CS_Next to create, save and apply your own custom looks.

Iron Man 3: The Trixters Behind Tony Stark's Shiny New Armor

Iron Man 3: The Trixters Behind Tony Stark's Shiny New Armor

Seventy artists from Trixter worked an entire year to create a formidable 208 VFX shots for Marvel's Iron Man 3. Each new episode in the Iron Man saga details a slick new technology created by the ingenious Tony Stark, and the new installment does not disappoint! Combining the hard surface geometry of the Iron Man suit auto-assembly with the flexibility of the human body was one of the challenges that Trixter brought from previs to believable screen reality.

RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere Pro

RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere Pro
  Play Video
In this tutorial Andrew Devis demonstrates a relatively new plug-in by RE:Vision Effects called RE:Match and how it can very quickly and accurately deal with the very common problem of non-matching cameras in Premiere Pro. A typical approach to dealing with say a white balance issue would be to apply the fast color corrector and use the white balance picker, but this can be very hit and miss, while RE:Match deals with the whole image using another image or clip as the reference to match too. This very powerful effect can save a great deal of time for an everyday problem and so earn its cost back very quickly as well as giving excellent and fast results. There is another tutorial showing how this effect works in After Effects as there is a slightly different way the two applications deal with reference images.

  Play Video
In this final tutorial in this Premiere Pro Basics (CS6 & above) series, Andrew Devis shows how to use the Rolling Shutter Repair effects which deals with the problem of footage from a camera phone or a DSLR (CMOS sensors) which look wobbly or jelly-like when panned quickly. The obvious solution is to avoid fast pans with this type of camera, if possible. However, sometimes you have no choice and then need to clean up the end result to stop your audience from feeling sea-sick! The Rolling Shutter Repair is a very powerful tool to deal with this issue and make sure your footage looks more like you originally intended it to look.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to use the 'Warp Stabilizer' effect in Premiere Pro. This powerful effect can be used to stabilize hand help or shaky footage so that the end result will be smooth motion or even no motion for the clip it is applied to. While being very powerful, the warp stabilizer works best with a good CUDA graphics card so that clips can be played back with the effect applied without the need to render the clips to see updates to any changes made.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis goes through an under-used effect in Premiere Pro which can be a real shot-saver by giving you the option to completely re-light a scene with multiple lights if needed. In this tutorial, Andrew shows how to use the effect to create a volumetric lighting effect for one shot and then to save a shot which suffers from being taken in a very bright environment and lastly a shot what has issues with being too dark in places. As well as being able to re-light a shot this effect also offers an exposure control which although somewhat linked to an ambient light is still a very useful feature to have in Premiere Pro.

The Ultra Key in Premiere Pro is a way of quickly and efficiently 'Green/Blue Screening' or 'Chroma Keying' footage elements shot against a colored background.

Andrew goes on to show how to deal with edge issues and then how to use another effects to simulate a 'light wrap' effect which brings the color of the background into the edge/alpha channel of the keyed object. Andrew finishes by showing how to deal with parts of the matte that have become semi-transparent during the keying process.

The Ultra Key in Premiere Pro is a way of quickly and efficiently 'Green/Blue Screening' or 'Chroma Keying' footage elements shot against a colored background. In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows a slightly more advanced way to set up to use the Ultra Key in Premiere Pro which involves matting out areas of the footage that either have items to be removed or have nothing but the chroma color in them (i.e. no action in those areas). Andrew goes through the process of creating a matte that just has the item to be keyed while keeping a good soft edge to the footage by using other effects in Premiere Pro. He then creates the final matted piece and applies the Ultra Key and goes on to shows how to adjust that matte after the Ultra Key has been applied.
