New Visions Issue : Creative COW Magazine
52 pages -- 6.3mb spread edition, 7mb print edition
The New Visions issue of Creative COW Magazine begins with John Galt of Panavision taking COW readers inside 'The Truth about 2K, 4K and Pixels,' separating 'real' pixels from 'marketing' pixels, as he explores the world of 2K, 4K and advanced imaging acquisition. Then join COW leader Jeremy Garchow who takes us inside the world of Panasonic's AVC-Intra in the world of production. Then join COW leader Pete O'Connell, compositor extraordinaire, as he introduces After Effects users to the power of NUKE, in his 'NUKE: An Introduction for After Effects Users.' If you have been using AE for years, as Pete has, you won't want to miss this one. Then the irrepressible Grinner Hester shows how he sold a show he wasn't working on to a network he had never seen. It's a story of tenacity that only Grinner could tell. Then Russell Lasson, who has become one of the COW's most popular authors and leaders, takes our readers into the intricacies and technical challenges of the world of Digital Cinema, using QubeCinema's QubeMaster Pro. Stereoscopic 3D production comes next, with Christopher Werronen unlocking some of the production issues in this rapidly unfolding new market. Last but not least by any means, Harry Pallenberg looks at his foray into the world of Film Festival Magic. It's both funny and informative. In this issue's Back Forty opinion column, Ron Lindeboom looks at the reasons for the success of Creative COW Magazine and answers the question: 'With some of the industry's magazines announcing that they are going to digital-only format, will the COW Magazine follow suit?'|
