So, after much back and forthing I decided to move my blog and website to a new home. The fine folks at SquareSpace do a wonderful job of making this as easy as possible.

What this means is not much, this blog will not be receiving any more posts, there is a new link to the blog http://www.tdepost.com/blog/

There is a new RSS link http://www.tdepost.com/blog/atom.xml

All the exisiting blog posts/comments etc have been moved over so nothing has ‘gone away’

However with the new site I will be putting up a lot more of my own tutorial videos alongside the Adobe Connect Sessions I do.

Also, keep your eye on my blog as very soon there will be a BIG announcement that I think will be a GAME CHANGER!

So in the meantime, remember, update those RSS aggregators with the new address and keep reading 🙂

Native Editing of Nikon D300s files on a Mac

This link was kindly provided by Alex. Havnt had a chance to give it a go yet, but looks like it will trick a Mac into playing the D300s AVI files on a Mac in Premiere for editing.

Adobe E – Seminar

Posted in Upcoming Connects with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2009 by evanbutson

So have my final eSeminar for the year this Friday. We will be covering working with footage from the RED Digital Cinema System.

Learn how you can hire a RED camera for less than most pro video cameras a day, and shoot up to 4K feature film quality and then edit that footage natively in Premiere Pro CS4, grade in After Effects and then produce a BluRay DVD of the project, all native, all realtime. Its pretty cool stuff actually.

As always the sessions are free, just need to register here, we will be live as 12:00 Melburne time this Friday.

An interesting little shoot with the D300s

Posted in DSLR Video with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 8, 2009 by evanbutson

On Friday I did a little shoot for an odd little Podcast call The C Word: Naked. This is for a trailer for the Podcast that is to go out onto the interwebz. It is being edited as we speak but I have cut together a few of the shots. We chose to use the Nikon because for half of the sequence we were shooting in a voiceover booth and the light levels were very low, too low to use the 202. Also we wanted it wacky so the fisheye was used for a few shots. For audio we recorded to an external solid state recorder, all up I think we used three channels. The audio in this edit is just the onboard mic however as I havn’t synced the audio tracks yet. The rig performed great, allowed me to get nice stable footage (I dont think I noticed any rolling shutter effects in any of the footage) As to what the trailer is actually about, you will just have to wait and see, check it out soon at http://www.cword.tv
