Since 2005 I’ve been podcasting my thoughts to the world. It started with The Coolness Roundup that I co-hosted with Charlie White, and has since grown to include seven weekly shows on the Major Spoilers Podcast Network. Over the years, the gear that I use to record podcasts has changed, but for the last four years, I’ve settled on a couple of different setups for the various shows I produced.
I do a show called The Want List that requires a bunch of keying in Adobe After Effects. In this video I walk you through my process of going from Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 to Adobe After Effects CS6 and back again, and along the way demonstrate how I use Keylight to key out the green screen background.
Adobe After Effects CS6 has a number of new features. Included in this walk-through/demo, are the new caching features, the 3D Camera Tracker, and Advanced 3D Render engine that allows the user to extrude text.
I was up late last night recording this, and there are a few times I totally say one word, when I mean another… duhr.
Make sure you watch this full size at 1080p!
A month ago, I picked up a set of Kenko Auto Extension Tubes that allow photographers to turn an ordinary lens into a macro – and in some cases a super-macro – lens.
Canon has announced the upcoming release of the Canon 5D Mark III the successor to the ever popular 5D Mark II that many film and television crews love to use. I have two 5D Mark IIs, will today’s announcement prompt me to go on a selling spree to get the Mark III?
I love the fact that my iPhone automatically geotags photos that I take when I am out and about. Once imported into Aperture, or other photo imaging application that supports metadata, it’s a simple click of the button to find out where on the planet the photo was taken.
But with bigger cameras, like the Canon 5D Mark II, there is a surprising lack of GPS tagging to be found. Oh sure, you could spend several hundred dollars for a GPS system that attaches to the camera, but the ones I have seen are big, and tend to get in the way. Since I always carry my iPhone with me, I went looking for a solution on the App Store.
It was such a nice day on Saturday, that my son and I went out to have some fun with my GoPro HD camera. If you haven’t heard of, or seen, one of these cameras, it is a super small, and lightweight camera that is designed to attached to helmets, bikes, motorcycles, skateboards, and anything else you can think of.
Designed for extreme sport coverage, these little camera’s pack quite a punch when it comes to capturing intense action in high definition. That’s right, this camera captures HD! So what did we do with it? Attached it to the front of the car, and took a little trip.
