  1. Slight update here: We will have Thatcher Kelley from with us tomorrow, showing multi-cam live streaming through this new platform. It's gonna be pretty awesome 🙂 .
  2. Online Session hosted by Mazze Aderhold Wednesday, July 8th 10am Los Angeles | 1pm New York | 7pm Berlin Register here: What is this online event about? In this online session we will show you how to use Assimilate Live Assist to boost your on-set workflow and adapt to an era of social distancing and fewer bodies on the set. Whether it’s live grading, live green screen replacement, multi-cam recording & playback or using Live Assist as a Media-hub to live-stream out multiple camera feeds, or instant-review footage and grades from any phone, tablet or laptop near-set. We will also have Stefan King from Difference Live Streaming, showing us the latest developments of their private low-latency streaming platform, and how to use it with Live Assist. Live Assist On-Set Workflow: • Example setup with 2 cameras • Live grading both camera feeds • Live effects & green screen replacement • (auto-) recording and playback of camera feeds • Set up Multi-Cam Live Stream from Live Assist • Use of on-screen annotations to communicate with remote clients • Thatcher Kelley from showing how to stream to a secure private platform • Built-in http web interface for local on-set instant review of recorded clips and grades • Generating reports and grade index for post houses • Post Workflow for dailies • Short- and Mid-term plans for Live Assist • Q&A The event is free for all attendees. The content is designed for DITs and Video Assists. We will also record the event for you to watch later. Please send your questions, comments and feedback to:
  3. Hi all, since metadata is more important than ever before in nowadays vfx-heavy workflows, frame based metadata is also being requested more often by vfx companies. With the latest SCRATCH build from yesterday we added support for frame based metadata from RED RAW footage. This way, you can get frame based lens information (and other metadata) rendered into OpenEXR sequences. VFX-departments can use that information to link to and control the virtual camera inside their compositing software. It's a huge timesaver and enables more accurate vfx work. If you wanna play around with it, get yourself a free license from our webpage: Release notes are to be found here: Cheers! Mazze
  4. H264 does support 10 bit (in normal MP4s, but also in MXF - XAVC, XF-AVC and AVC-I are basically 10 bit H264 flavors). However, not all players can decode it. Also not sure whether Resolve allows to render 10 bit h264. In any case - as Stef mentioned, it might be a moot point anyways, since Youtube will convert it back to 8 bit.
  5. You can, but in 99% Youtube will convert it to an 8 bit h264 again and stream that, instead of your 10 bit source. Mainly because browsers to my knowledge are not able to decode 10 bit h264. Next, most monitors that Youtube is being watched on are 8 bit panels anyways. However, many of them have good dithering functionality, taking care of any banding. Given that, you can just export as 8 bit right from the start.
  6. Dolby Vision is on the list - but so far, that's all I can tell at this point, I'm afraid.
  7. Hi all, here is a video that shows how to set up ScopeBox with Assimilate SCRATCH, Live Looks, Live Assist and Play Pro for advanced video measuring: Cheers, Mazze
  8. And here is finally the recording of the session. It is 2 hours long, but after those you'll be able to drive your dailies in SCRATCH 😉 .
  9. Hi everyone, as RED recently released their new metal-decode SDK, I found it a good idea to make a quick video about which settings you can tweak in order to maximize performance for playback and transcoding. Cheers, Mazze
  10. Hi all, here's the recording of our recent webinar about live streaming with an introduction to the basics about live streaming as such and then setting up a live streaming session via Youtube, or a custom streaming server - enjoy! Greetz, Mazze
  11. Hi all, just catching up on posting videos 🙂 . Here's a little overview of the most important new features in SCRATCH 9.2. First and foremost the new annotation tool, which can be used for review sessions (also via live streaming) and the new Soft Clip toolset. Cheers, Mazze
  12. Just added a small bit: We will also get to enjoy a short demo (incl. Q&A) of the latest version of COPRA web dailies platform, by Ansgar Krützmann of CinePost in Berlin 🙂 !
