OS X file renaming utility. Rename thousands of files at once. Preview new filenames. See pop-up previews with content. Save droplets for reuse.
MadPanicTV's insight:

This takes away all the pain of renaming files, making it an absolute breeze.  Instant feedback on screen as to what your new files will be called and a choice of simple or advanced modes.  Regular expression support for detailed pattern matching.  Been looking for something like this for a while so I can consign my batch of python scripts to archive!!

MadPanicTV's insight:

Having just waited for more than 10 hours to render a film when using RedGiant's Colorista II only to find horrible banding in the results, I have just discovered the power of the Adobe 3-Way Color Corrector.  Not only is it accurate (and free), it is 32-bit and REALTIME (ok I have a GPU enabled card, a hacked one at that!).  

 

This tutorial shows how to use it for secondary colour correction.  To be able to run in realtime, without having to render, makes all the difference.

Must Know DuctTake: Spatiotemporal Video Compositing, by Disney Research & Eurographics (PDF + 3 Videos)

Must Know DuctTake: Spatiotemporal Video Compositing, by Disney Research & Eurographics (PDF + 3 Videos) | Filmmaking | Scoop.it

Posted by Steve Oakley on May 20, 2013 • 

 

(...) "Lets look at the future in this software demo which I think will pretty much blow you away. DuctTake  is a way of compositing images thats unlike anything you've seen. It patchespeices of images together in the same shot across time. To really understand what it does watch the video." SteveOakley.net

 

ABSTRACT

"DuctTake is a system designed to enable practical compositing of multiple takes of a scene into a single video. Current industry solutions are based around object segmentation, a hard problem that requires extensive manual input and cleanup, making compositing an expensive part of the film-making process. Our method instead compos- ites shots together by finding optimal spatiotemporal seams using motion-compensated 3D graph cuts through the video volume. We describe in detail the required components, decisions, and new techniques that together make a usable, interactive tool for compositing HD video, paying special attention to running time and performance of each section. We validate our approach by presenting a wide variety of examples and by comparing result quality and creation time to composites made by professional artists using current state-of-the-art tools."
