Cinegear LA 2011!

Cinegear LA 2011 : Demonstrated on the Stwo booth a full 3K solution for ARRIRAW. We can now mount the FlashMags directly into the Mistika via 400MB/S fibre allowing for instant scrub/playback of the rushes directly and full verification. This approach also allows us to start the 3K processing via our bespoke RAID arrays that give us the speeds to playback real 3K images (not 3K downconverted to HD) in real time from the processed 3K DPXs.

Its very cool, and a hell of a lot of work has gone into this by Pure Digital, S.two, Mistika, Light Illusion and Dulce. It works and works very very well :-)

Further details of our work and shoots running globally on the website/blog.

Santiago Day 4!

Santiago, Chile Day 04 : Shooting motion control all day for shots of multiple passes with action. OB-1 performed flawlessly replicating helicopter landings as seen here and the motion control in the studio. We processed the .ari ARRIRAW files to 3K DPXs for the Production which were delivered yesterday and will be delivered to print for evaluation this month.
