Adobe MAX 2014
This week was the kickoff of Adobe MAX 2014, which seems to be the most concentrated convergence of Adobe creative users from around the world. In this series of articles I'll just present some notes from the convention and my experience as an attendee, a user, a community leader, and a professional user of their software and services. In this installment, I'll give a few words about the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. I may be the wrong candidate, or the perfect candidate to write about this, because I am a Apple/Mac fan, but I'm going to write this piece, and a few to follow on the Surface Pro. ...Read More »

Content Insider #360 - No Good Deed
Ask anyone and they'll tell you they want to do the right thing ... and they mean it. Problem is there are temptations facing them every time they turn around. Unsecure notebooks, tablets, smartphones. Stuff you've put out there about yourself in every social media nook, cranny you can find. Personal data, pictures, video content that any sub-teen can access without even thinking too hard. Business, government files that she/he left open because well it's easier than having to remember the multiple passwords he/she needs. Content, news, information they can get for free and product/service discounts they can receive simply by giving them a little information like name, date of birth, home/office location, phone know nothing important. You give a little, they give a little and is good! Then you find out they did what? ...Read More »

Jumping Genres on "Trent & Isabella"
Close your eyes and picture the first time you watched "The Maltese Falcon." Now do the same with "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." Can you picture the soft shadows and tenseness of film noire? How about the heightened details of spaghetti westerns where you can see every hair on a face and every bead of sweat? Both genres of film have very distinct feelings, color schemes and emotional responses. Now shake your head, mix them together and imagine what it would look like if you combined the two. You would get "Trent & Isabella." ...Read More »
Documenting A Road Trip Via Video
The Monaro is to be wired up with a phalanx of camcorders; a Kaiser Baas dashcam is mounted on the windscreen with a 64GB Sandisk card, a Sony HDD DCR-SR200 Handycam is on a Hague headrest mount (no relation by the way), and a Canon Legria Mini-X 'action cam' is to perform roving boundary rider camcorder duties when not mounted to another Hague mount, a suction based heavy duty unit kitted out with Manfrotto hardware. Audio is also well catered for too. An Azden wireless mic setup with a label lav mic will record dialogue to a Samsung Recorder, a RDE VideoMic Go on the Sony will record ambience, suitably backed up with a RDE Videomic 2 on the Legria. ...Read More »
Quick Tip:
Mounting Camera To Auto Headset
I have been asked by a few people to give some more nuts'n'bolts information on the mounts I have in the Monaro. First up, we'll look at the headrest mount. It's quite a simple affair on the surface, in being a bracket that wraps around the 'posts' of the lifted headrest, and this is then tightened by a couple of butterfly/wingnuts. ...Read More »

Business Issues:
My interest in MAXON is no mystery. As a motion graphics animator in Hollywood, working in several major promo design and VFX houses, I?ve seen CINEMA4D become a staple in designers' pipelines. Each time a new version of CINEMA4D is released, 3D motion graphics designers and VFX artists get excited to see what MAXON has in store for us. This year, R16 offers us a lot to be excited for. ...Read More »
