Eye Candy Adds New Tools for Nucoda Film Master


Houston-based digital cinema mastering facility Eye Candy has increased its color correction capacity with the addition of a new tool set for Nucoda Film Master.

With the addition of Digital Vision’s 2013 rev2 grading and mastering suite (including ACES [ST 2065-1-2012]), a non-proprietary workflow based on the Academy Color Encoding Specification, Eye Candy can read the ACES color space directly, de-bayer realtime and work non-destructively at half float from the R3d files without rendering.

Eye Candy’s new tool set includes, among a dozen upgrades, a Deformable Shape Tracker. This allows the colorist, for example, to track a woman’s lips as she speaks. The bezier curve will deform automatically with the motion of her mouth as she speaks without further intervention, allowing the colorist to precisely change of the color of her lips.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
