[permalink] 21.04.2015

Autodesk Flame 2015 3D Shape screenshotAutodesk announced that Flame Premium creative finishing software, Maya 3D animation software, Shotgun and RV, will support ACES 1.0, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' color management and interchange standards. Simultaneously, Autodesk unveiled plans to make its SynColor color management engine available as a reference implementation for future ACES adopters through a royalty-free, permissive license. With support for the new ACES 1.0 color transforms and Common LUT Format (CLF) already integrated into the latest versions of Flame, Lustre, and Maya, creative professionals now have greater flexibility to achieve and maintain pristine color consistency across imagery created and modified in industry-standard tools - from production to post, delivery and archival. The availability of Autodesk's SynColor production-proven CPU and GPU reference implementation, which features support for exact-math ACES transforms, CLF, OpenColorIO and ICC, will also enable technology developers to more quickly deliver high quality ACES applications with top-notch performance.

Teranex Mini, next generation 12G-SDI mini converters
[permalink] 15.04.2015

Blackmagic Teranex Mini 12G photo Blackmagic Design announced Teranex Mini, a next generation family of video converters featuring advanced 12G-SDI technology, award winning Teranex quality, front panel controls and LCD, built in power supply and support for all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. Teranex Mini features a revolutionary design which has been developed to solve problems with regular mini converters. These problems include issues with dissipating the heat generated from high speed 12G-SDI, the cumbersome external power supplies, the inability to use standard XLR connectors and the limited controls on mini converters that are usually crude switches. Blackmagic Design's new Teranex Minis solve all these problems by utilizing a better industrial design. One of the most innovative features of the new Teranex Minis is they feature an optional smart front panel that includes a spin knob, color LCD and multiple buttons. This means the user can simply remove the basic front panel from a Teranex Mini and replace it with a Teranex Mini Smart Panel to allow full setup and control from the front panel. Users can see the video being converted, monitor audio levels and even verify timecode and the video standard being converted. This allows broadcasters to simply walk up to the front panel and change settings and verify conversion, a vital feature when used in mission critical broadcast environments. Also included in all models is built in Ethernet so Teranex Minis can be remotely administered from a central location using Blackmagic Design's new Converter Utility for Windows and Mac OS X. There are six models of Teranex Minis based on the conversion required, these include SDI to HDMI, HDMI to SDI, SDI to Analog, Analog to SDI, SDI to Audio and Audio to SDI. There is also six optical fiber models that include a single SDI connection and an 12G-SDI SMPTE compatible optical SDI module. The 12G-SDI models of the Teranex Mini will be available in May from $495 US, with the Optical Fiber models available in June from $895 US. [source]

[permalink] 15.04.2015

Blackmagic Davinci Resolve 12 screensot Blackmagic Design announced DaVinci Resolve 12, a major upgrade with over 80 new features for professional editing and color grading. This new update includes a new modern interface, multi-cam editing, powerful new media management tools, an entirely new professional audio engine with support for VST/AU plug-ins, shot matching, 3D keyer, new 3D perspective tracker, enhanced curve editing and much more. DaVinci Resolve 12 features a new, modern interface with a lighter overall color scheme and new fonts that help reduce eye strain and make it easier to work for long sessions. The new interface is scalable and has been designed to look great on high DPI monitors, such as Retina displays. New top down navigation speeds up layout selections and also gives users more flexibility to customize their workspace. With dramatically improved editing, DaVinci Resolve 12 now has the ability to integrate with other NLEs even better. Edit timelines can round trip to other editing software and more of settings, plug-ins and edits are preserved. For example when importing XMLs from Final Cut Pro X, DaVinci Resolve 12 can now import multi-cam clips and preserve all the original camera angles. Also, audio support is greatly improved to match the audio timeline in Final Cut Pro X. This makes collaborative workflows better and allows different people in a facility to use the tools they prefer instead of being forced into an inflexible company wide platform. The update to DaVinci Resolve 12 will be available in July for download from the Blackmagic Design website free of charge for all current DaVinci Resolve customers. [source]
