Re: [Avid-L2] RE: Project Archive

 

I've tried Media copy as its a great product but it crashed in my current Osx 10.8.4.  I don't think it still works. Wish it did.

Look through the workflow for consolidating projects and media.


Another approach is to use the free Automatic Duck Media Copy application (still available). As far as I know it still works. Media Copy reads a sequence and then copies the file and all MXF media into a separate folder, which can be archived to wherever you want. All in proper Avid data formats.

Hmmm. Doesn't do H.265 so how crunched will this "4K" really be?

I wouldn't call redditors "the general public," much less those who post on a technology subreddit.  But most of these comments are pretty valid.

[Avid-L2] RE: SEC 8-K filing

 

---In avid-l2@yahoogroups.com, <huipro@...> wrote:


does it strike you as just a little odd (as a stockholder) to see substantial "performance" incentives in a chief accounting officer's package?  

Based on what?  Targets, they help set?  Their presentation of the numbers?  In a program like that,  there's inherent "incentive" to massage the figures, if possible.  

Not saying they'll be ANYTHING of the kind, but it would have appealed to me more to see someone hired from outside the firm, and given a different performance package. 

He was hired from outside.  He was hired in April 2013 from the company the current CEO (Louis Hernandez) used to work for (Open Solutions).

"Any bonus paid for 2013 will be pro-rated by the number of days he was employed by the Company in 2013, provided that the bonus for 2013 is guaranteed at target, if all material weaknesses of the Company's internal controls over financial reporting are remediated within a specified time."

What is the specified time?  It's not stated in the 8-K filing.  The time specified, like most deadlines in our business, should be yesterday.  Any bonus should be related to an increase in stock price after the accounting debacle is resolved.  Any rise in stock price before the accounting debacle is resolved is not attributable to the Chief Accounting Officer.  Even the new CAO cannot argue against that logic.

I am seeing a massive carousel here.  Let's recap what has happened.  The previous CEO resigned his position.  Shortly thereafter, accounting issues were discovered.  This forced the previous CEO to resign his seat on the board, and it forced the previous CFO to resign.  The previous CEO used to work with the previous CFO.  Coincidence?  Investigators will have to figure that out.

Now we have a new CEO, and he worked with the new CAO at his previous company.  How long until this massive carousel completes a revolution and we have more change?  Will we have another unfortunate coincidence?

Re: [Avid-L2] OT - Eyeon update Tech and Creative

 

I think I have my resolution needs pretty well covered, so far the most I've actually ever delivered for motion was 8K, but I did once push out a 16K still frame for a poster...

Currently After Effects handles 30k x 30k (960 MP) and Nuke handles 64k x 4k (or 128k x 2k) which is actually a hardcoded viewer limitation of 2ˆ28 (268,435,456 total pixels), but if I was willing to work with proxies in the viewer I believe I can render 2x that.

So 48k x 5.5K would be about all I could do comfortably right now.

Hopefully Nuke 8 will lift these artificial constraints and allow us more freedom.

Course Adobe would probably argue that most people cant tell the difference between 30K and 48K but that's the voice of defeat.

best regards

Mike

Mike, you need to get on a real system that does 48K image. If you're not doing that you are an amateur. ;-)

Re: [Avid-L2] Project Archive

Here I am back in the Avid saddle after years of FCP experience.

Please realize that before I ask this question I have been all over the Avid site, and Goggle & Youtube searches.

I have finished a few projects in MC7 and now I want to archive the projects and their media. In FCP I would use the Media Manager to consolidate everything into one folder for each project. What is the Media Composer workflow/best practice for this?

Thanks in advance.

I heard no one can see 4K or anything over 60 fps :)

Jeff you know I have liked Fusion a long long time, I used very early copies back when Rob Nichol was selling the tracker to Alias as Maya live, Ive done a couple of films in it and still love its depth effects, water and particle stuff, I love its speed BUT I cannot and will not let windows into my personal daily work routine.

I did a feature in Nuke a couple of years ago that was all Windows, I was miserable. Every interaction with the OS depressed me from copying files to lack of basic Unix commands. All my project organisation on mac and linux works from perl and python scripts, even with third party extensions windows odd practice of mapping drives and a strange implementation of proper UNC path support totally derailed me. Using the OS is no drama, its the same as everyone else but each time a shell script fails my blood pressure sky rockets as there goes the rest of the day. Its no coincidence that the film in question was why I had heart surgery that year. Twice. There were other factors that made the surgery necessary I'm sure but I think windows was at least 99% to blame with maybe 1% of personal culpability from eating badly, drinking too much coke, working over 100 hours a week and lack of exercise. But logically yeah it was windows that did it.

I'm sure windows is perfectly good for a good part of the world, I hear its very popular with spreadsheets and video games, but high end VFX is by and large a unix world and after 30 years in that world I'm not going to rework every part of my pipeline for any piece of software.

By the way I did an IMAX project at 8K in Shake in late 1999, back then you had to manually edit the include.h file to change the max image size from the 4k default. Memory management during comp was the biggest hurdle back then but the scanline renderer only loaded into memory what was needed per line. How do you guys handle pushing 32 bit 4K images around and what's the recommended memory spec for a stereo 4K project?

best regards

Mike

We do way above 8k and we also do 4k stereo at 120 fps and I don't know anyone else who can.

 

Its OK I'm skipping 4K now and waiting for 8K.
