The Editors’ Lounge Announces Avid, Filmlight and Pond5 as 2014 Presenters


The Editors’ Lounge will kick off 2014 with a double presentation from Avid and Filmlight, as well as first-time presenter Pond5. The event provides opportunities to learn new skills while networking with industry peers. The event will be held Jan. 31 at AlphaDogs Post Production in Burbank.

Avid will provide a hands-on demonstration of Baselight for Avid, the Filmlight grading system for Media Composer, on both Mac and PC units. Baselight shares the same color metadata as all systems in the Filmlight range, meaning projects can be seamlessly transferred and shared between on set, near set and the grading suite, offering a collaborative workflow.

Colorist Laura Jans Fazio and Avid consulting specialist Michael Krulik will demonstrate and answer questions about the Avid and Baselight interoperability. Features highlighted include Media Composer and Baselight workflow and toolset enhancements, AAF-based round tripping, GPU acceleration, integration with Avid Artist Color and other third-party control surfaces.

Pond5 will share its stock media libraries and the benefits of utilizing them. Ryan McAfee will present its royalty-free content, and Bybe Sepit will demonstrate its Adobe Premiere Pro plugin for media search, organization and one-click conform of high-res media.

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.
