  1. Hi people, we've been working on a new software for virtual production over the past couple of months. As of today, Assimilate Live FX is out in open beta. It does a whole lot of stuff - from compositing over camera tracking to LED wall control and DMX lighting control. We've defined a few workflows that we found made the most sense. But given how much this still is a pioneering field, we also threw in a bunch of tools that help defining custom workflows (which we'd love to hear about and possibly streamline those as well). So, if you wanna know more about Live FX - head over the Assimilate webpage: From there you can also register for the open beta. We also created a small tutorials series to get everyone started asap. 6 videso with each being around 10 mins long: And if you have any questions - you know where to find me πŸ˜‰ . Cheers, Mazze
  2. Hi Rinaldi, on 1) Not sure - it seems to work fine here. What resolution is your footage, what resolution is your timeline / main output node and which other tools (like e.g. scopes) do you have opened, if any? on 2) Note that the scaling in the viewport is not a high quality algorithm. Check the footage on a reference screen or display it 1:1 to judge edges and such. SCRATCH does not make things look nice without being asked - it rather shows what's actually there. on 3) To the left of the playback controls is a button to set playback to once/loop/bounce. Shift + Enter does that as well. Control-clicking that button (or using Ctrl + up/down arrow keys) changes playback speed. Hit "R" (or the Range button to the right of the playback controls) to set the playback range to the current clip. Cheers, Mazze
  3. Hey everyone, I'm happy to announce that as of today, all Tangent Element panels sold by Angry Face will have a powder coated fine structured finish, instead of the old softcoating! But there’s more – we are proud to present you: The Tangent Element Black Edition! Included in this bundle of powder coated Elements are our black aluminium rings, dark-petrol metallic trackerballs and our custom black rubberized knobs – all for just 2850€ (excl. VAT). And for everyone who already has a set of Elements – we got you covered with our Refurbish offer – incl. optional upgrades for rings, trackerballs and knobs! Cheers! Mazze Here's a few pictures:
  4. Hi everyone, here's a tutorial showing how to set up the integration between Hedge and SCRATCH, so after a successfull offload, Hedge will automatically create a timeline inside the SCRATCH project and populate it with the backupped media, so it's ready for QC, audio sync and transcoding. For the engaged DIT, there now is a nicely priced bundle, containing - Live Looks for live grading - Hedge for offload & backup - SCRATCH for dailies transcoding & reporting Cheers, Mazze
  5. This video is sort of the follow-up tutorial to the one about frame-based metadata and transcoding to OpenEXR. Today we're looking at how to load and conform an EDL from Avid, and automatically pull the vfx-shotnames, which are included in the EDL as markers (or 'locators' if you prefer) and replace the original clipnames with the new vfx-shotnames, before transcoding the camera RAW incl all its metadata to OpenEXR. Good stuff, people. Cheers! Mazze
  6. Frame-based metadata and how to forward it from camera RAW into OpenEXR. Enjoy πŸ™‚ . Cheers, Mazze
  7. There is something odd going on with NDI under macOS, where it gets a red-ish tint. Has something to do with the YUV conversion as far as I can tell. This is however with any app that uses NDI.
  8. Hi all, SCRATCH and Play Pro are shipping with an integrated patch generator for Light Illusion's ColourSpace CMS. This tutorial shows how to set everything up and run the display calibration πŸ™‚ . Cheers, Mazze
  9. Hi all, this video is interesting equally to post, than it is for virtual production. THe Sync Players feature in SCRATCH simply allows to sync the playhead of multiple SCRATCH systems, and control those systems from one master system, playing back different footage to different screens simultaneously. The remote control feature allows to control playback in SCRATCH via a web browser on the local network - for instance on your smartphone. Good stuff. Cheers, Mazze
  10. Hi all, this tutorial is about one of SCRATCH's strength: Metadata. Static or frame based, in a burn-in or a report, or in export filenaming. Cheers, Mazze
  11. Hi people, this tutorial is about the animation editor in SCRATCH and why it is as awesome as it is. Enjoy πŸ™‚ Mazze
  12. Hey people, I'm happy to announce the new refurbish program for Tangent's Element panels πŸ™‚ ! For many users, the panel's surface has become worn down and/or sticky over the years. What we're doing here is to take the panel completely apart, remove the old soft coating and re-lacquer it with a deep black fine-structured powder coat, which should take a couple of ages to wear down again πŸ™‚ . The look & feel is pretty similar to the Blackmagic panels, if you have come across those. Anyways - here is the link and below are a couple of pictures to check out. ==> Cheers! Mazze
  13. Hi people, this tutorial is purely about the SCRATCH timeline (called 'CONstruct' back in the day). What many do not know: It has 3 dimensions πŸ˜‰ . Once you understand how it works, it can be a huge time saver and organizational help. Cheers, Mazze
  14. Hey peoples, since the original foam inserts for the Element panels (see pictures below) are not being made anymore and have been unavailable for the past 2 years, I am considering to produce them again in a small production batch. Estimated price is 200€ (excl. VAT) + shipping for one set. The original foam inserts were priced at 175€ (excl. VAT). The Peli case itself is not included! I am about to make a prototype in the next couple of weeks, but to actually produce them, I'd need at least 5 pre-orders. If you're interested, drop me a line via PM, or email (mazze (at) Thanks! Mazze
  15. Precisely πŸ˜‰ . Well, yes - it does not look great. But then again... it didn't look particularly stellar before either .
