This may be a dumb question, but why is the yearly in-state tuition for the MFA program (nearly $28K) almost twice that for the MA program ($15K)?
Also, in the third paragraph you rendered the school's name "Feinstein" instead of "Feirstein."
It was "3K for under $3K." But the original Scarlet concept was scrapped within a matter of months in favor of a modular design, with a price hike. And delay after delay was accompanied by a projected price increase. At one point, Jim Jannard proclaimed that Red was no longer interested in the low end of the market -- "pro cameras command pro prices." Then when it was clear that a 3K camera didn't fit credibly in with his "4K is the future" mantra, Red abandoned the 3K Scarlet. Now that they're moving away from 4K (is 8K now the future?), it seems odd that they're revisiting the low end. But if they are, they should try very, very hard to steer clear of modularity and proprietary components or recording media. No one wants to pay $X for the body but then end up having to spend two to three times as much for a functional system. (Lenses are, of course, another matter, one outside Red's control -- they're always expensive.)
Arri is already out in front, despite the fact that the Red Epic's sensor has about three times the pixels. If Arri could achieve 6K on an s35 sensor while maintaining (or even improving) dynamic range, there would be little reason to use Red's cameras. And if they can add a global shutter without sacrificing dynamic range, maybe through the use of a stacked design, then they'll have sealed their victory over everyone else.
There are some shortcomings to the free version of Fusion 7: UHD resolution limit, lack of network rendering, lack of OpenFX support, reduced scriptability. But even at $995 for the full versiom, Fusion's price is far lower than it was, and certainly only a fraction of Nuke's.
This is true. For instance, while most VFX houses use Maya plus perhaps a lot of custom code for 3D, there are smaller shops that use LightWave or even Blender.
The 120-Hz setting by itself doesn't do this but rather functions like the multibladed shutter on a film projector. It takes what would look stroby (24 fps or 24 Hz) and by displaying each frame two or three times increases the effective display frequency (to 48 or 72 Hz). Some sets allow you to retain the 120 Hz frequency but turn off the interpolation, so that each original frame is simply repeated four times. (Higher-range plasmas use a 96-Hz frequency, or, in the case of the old Pioneer Elites and some current LG plasmas, 72 Hz. Inexplicably, until the swan-song ST60 series, midtier and low-end U.S. Panasonic plasma models had a nausea-inducing 48-Hz rate, whereas European versions always had the higher rate.) There are only two answers -- 3:2 pulldown to 60 Hz (not ideal, either), or a multiple of 24 Hz, preferably with interpolation turned off by default.
