Creative COW Magazine : Divergence Issue
Divergence is fun for us as media consumers. But it’s a nightmare for us as media makers. Format creep started accelerating when HD came along, but now, the number of codecs, frame sizes, and frame rates is exploding. Just to make things fun, there are even multiple ways of encoding to stereoscopic 3D. How are all of us supposed to navigate this? The trick is to embrace the delight consumers find in all this divergence, and to let it soothe the stabbing pain between our eyes as producers. No problem, right? Right. We offer some suggestions for that in these pages, and some shiny pictures to distract you in the meantime. "Divergence" is not just an opportunity. It’s an imperative the audience demands: Be where we are.
