bulletproofMedia management can be one of the more irritating facets of filmmaking, especially in the digital age. While various DIT tools exist for the purpose of transcoding, creation of proxies, LUT application, on-set grading, etc, many of the more effective solutions are way beyond our budgets. For the past several months, Red Giant’s BulletProof, a comprehensive suite of media management tools, has been in a public beta in order to work out the kinks in the software. Today, BulletProof 1.0 has finally been released into the filmmaking world. Check it out: More »

Video thumbnail for vimeo video Red Giant BulletProof Media Management App Now Available in Public Beta - nofilmschoolAlmost two months ago, Red Giant announced BulletProof, a complete offload, prep, and delivery solution for camera footage.

It’s all well and good setting out to create a ‘proof-of-plugin’ short / commercial when you have flashy effects or color grade looks to show off, but if the product is more concerned with efficient workflow, then introducing an impressive invasion scene or futuristic weapon probably isn’t going to cut it. So how did Red Giant choose to showcase their offload, prep, and delivery solution BulletProof through the medium of film? Why, by creating Spy vs Guy, a live action Road Runner vs Wile E. Coyotesque film, steeped in cold war era skullduggery of course. Check out the hunt below. More »

You might hear us talk a lot of about workflows and post-production pipelines, but really what we are talking about is organizing the camera files you get on-set, backing them up, organizing, transcoding, and applying basic color correction. Red Giant, who makes the Magic Bullet suite of programs, is introducing a brand new program called BulletProof that “bridges the gap between camera and editor.” Click through for more details.

No one’s doubting the impact that time-play can have in motion pictures. This, you’d think, would generally refer to things like time-lapse or slow-motion — but what if some scientific breakthrough could invoke slow-motion upon real life objects, like some kind of time-warp weapon? Post-plugin powerhouse Red Giant has just released an original sci-fi/action short called Tempo that explores this possibility, and then some. It’s exciting whenever a hard-concept type of film sets its premise, proceeds to meet each and every hopeful expectation you might have given that premise, and then goes even further than you could hope for. This is the case with Tempo — check it out below. (Also, a Secret Sale soon-to-be… Shh, secret!) More »

After Red Giant took over PluralEyes, the popular syncing software, it wasn’t clear what they would do with the program or how they would support it. With the newest software update, 3.1, it looks like they are committed to making it as easy to use as possible, and bringing it to as many computers as possible. While Windows support will be coming in version 3.2, the current update addresses a few of the remaining concerns for current users. Click through to check out what they’ve done in this update.

As I said in my previous post on the Great Wireless Mic Shootout, great location audio will make your film shine. To ensure a proper sync with any second-system audio however, you need great source audio on an external recorder and from the camera. Luckily for us DSLR shooters there are plenty of options for on-camera mics out there. And if you’re not a fan of all that second-system syncing in post, you’re in luck — now through December 31st, RØDE is packaging PluralEyes 3 — a $200 value — with the purchase of their Stereo VideoMic Pro or their VideoMic Pro. Hit the bump for an informative video from Aahron Rabonowitz of Red Giant/Creative COW fame: More »

PluralEyes has been around for quite some time, and with the increasing popularity of DSLRs and recording dual-system sound, it’s been a necessity. Even though newer NLEs like Final Cut Pro X (and not Premiere Pro, unfortunately) have the ability to sync audio, a third-party application like PluralEyes should be able to do it faster and more efficiently, and that’s certainly the claim made by Red Giant about the new PluralEyes version 3. This is the first version of PluralEyes since Red Giant acquired the software, so it will be interesting to see what direction it takes from here.
