At NAB 2011, Codex Digital unveiled The Vault, an on-set laboratory solution for review, dailies and deliverables production that supports digital cinema cameras made by RED, ARRI, and Sony, among other manufacturers. The Vault is a standalone solution with its own internal drives, providing a single, standardized workflow for productions employing multiple camera systems. The system can also produce deliverables in all formats required for dailies review, post production and archival purposes. Other key features include support for RED drives, CF cards and SxS cards; high-speed, secure data transfers; data management and metadata server; and capability for iPad dailies.

Codex Digital also demonstrated a dailies workflow for TV and film based on the new IIF/ACES post production process. The demonstration used Codex Digital's Onboard Recorder and Desktop Transfer Station to produce deliverables, with IIF/ACES dynamic range, for editorial, post production and dailies review. Developed under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Science and Technology Council, the IIF/ACES process is an effort to establish a standard format for digital production.

It's great news that companies like Codex Digital are pushing IIF/ACES forward through the development of actual gear that can be used in the production/post production process. Stay tuned to Creative COW for user stories as this process gets going in Hollywood.

Finally, Codex Digital reached an agreement with ARRI to manufacture a CODEX ARRIRAW recorder for use with ARRI's ALEXA and ARRIFLEX D-21 film-style digital cameras. The new recorder will be marketed both directly and through ARRI's worldwide reseller network. ARRI and its resellers will also be selling Codex camera mounts, data packs and transfer stations. The entry-level recorder will feature single-channel ARRIRAW recording; users will be able to upgrade at any time to a fully featured Codex recorder.


The workflow will employ a Codex Digital Onboard Recorder in tandem with an ARRI Alexa camera to record ARRIRAW data files. The files will then be processed by a Codex Transfer Station for Mac which will make the files directly available to an Assimilate SCRATCH Lab in Avid DNxHD and ProRes 422 formats via Codex's proprietary Virtual File System.

Codex recorders have been used in combination with the ALEXA camera on several film productions, including Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Warner Bros./Paramount), Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Fox), The Wettest County in the World (Benaroya Pictures) and Gravity (Warner Bros.).

“I am thrilled to be joining the COW team,” said Debra Kaufman, newly named Associate Editor of Creative COW Magazine. “In an era in which so much coverage has shrunk to 300-word sound bites, I'm delighted to be able to cover the dramatic changes in our industry in depth. Additionally, I look forward to reaching a huge number of engaged readers working in production and post, in the U.S. and internationally. Publisher Ronald Lindeboom and Editor-in-Chief Tim Wilson early on understood the importance of a web presence, and have created an astonishingly large audience both online and in print.”

Look forward to more great stories from Debra in Creative COW Magazine, and online here at CreativeCOW.net.

Creating Transitions with BCC 6 AE's Swish Pan Filter
  Play Video
Editors use transitions as a way to cut between scenes, typically creating an animated effect such as a dissolve or blur at the end of the outgoing clip and the beginning of the incoming clip. While most modern NLE systems ship with standard wipe transitions, there are some transition styles that are more of an in-camera effect rather than a synthesized gradient wipe or block dissolve. One of these effects, known as a Swish Pan, is created by panning the camera very quickly in a 180 degree arc, creating the look of a fast blur between the outgoing and incoming clips. Continuing in the tradition of making visual effects easy to create, Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE now includes a Swish Pan transition filter which is available free for registered BCC 6 AE users. In this video tutorial, we'll use the new BCC 6 Swish Pan filter to transition between a pair of clips.
