In the new issue of Creative COW Magazine, we celebrate five years of the kind of industry leading inspiration, information and vision that has made Creative COW the strongest magazine in the world of film, broadcast and professional media production. You can download the full edition in its PDF version now -- available in either our print-friendly single page edition, or our double-page "spread" edition -- online at http://magazine.creativecow.net/downloads.php

On December 19, 2005 when we announced that we would be launching Creative COW Magazine, it caused quite a stir. After all, print was dying and many magazines were leaving the market. Many of you thought we were crazy to be going into print in a market like this. But today, five years into publishing Creative COW Magazine, the magazine has become an industry leading publication with highly respected articles and the support of most all of the major companies operating in this market.

In the 5th Anniversary Edition, you will meet a wide array of industry professionals that include Oscar® winners, Emmy® winners, market leaders, as well as newer starry-eyed dreamers afire with the stories and ideas that fuel them in their own drive for creative excellence.

We had a great time crafting this issue, looking back as well as looking forward to the stories that we have yet to tell. Maybe your story will be one of them? If you have a great story that you think our readers would be interested in, please write us at magazine@creativecow.net and let's talk. Bonus points if your story includes a jaw-dropping workflow component.

Thank you to all of you who have made Creative COW Magazine such a great addition to the Creative COW community, a community filled with the kind of people and stories that make each issue of the magazine such an inspiring read. And this one is right up there with our very best. Download it, we think that you'll agree.

Cameras are notoriously difficult to get to grips with in After Effects. In this tutorial, Andrew Devis explains some of the behaviors and problems that are common to camera animation and then shows how to do a simple one dimensional animation, while pointing out why that solution cannot be used for more than one dimension (x,y or z rotation).

As digital photography and cinematography reach further into the digital media landscape, and your captured images can be viewed on a vast range of media, the need for standardizing color has become more invaluable than ever. Imagine trying to get a consistent hue of green or blue or teal across multiple platforms.

So, it becomes easy to understand why it's important to have a color reference chart for each new scenes' lighting conditions. All of the formats carry specific gamma and color spaces to reproduce color. The chart is the point of agreement. In this review, David Battistella reviews  the RED Cambook from DSC Labs, which readily addresses these concerns. Read on for David's findings...

When we correct footage with just our eyes, how do we know that the decisions we make are correct and that we have remained within broadcast safe limits? That is where the waveform monitors help by giving clear empirical data on our footage so that the choices we make aren't just based on what we see. In this AE tutorial, Andrew Devis introduces us to the Luma Waveform Monitor and how it can be used to correct a shot and stay within safe limits.

The YC Waveform graph in Premiere Pro gives us a graphical display of the Luminance (brightness) and Chrominance (color) of our footage and is an essential tool for correcting and improving the look of our image by giving us empirical data about the changes we make rather than just relying on our eyes. In this short tutorial, Andrew Devis introduces the YC Waveform graph and shows how to use it as a reference for brightness adjustment of a shot.

Sometimes you bring in footage to your project panel to add to a sequence and it just looks wrong! This is because Premiere Pro has interpreted the footage - or made assumptions about the footage - which aren't correct. So how do you tell PP to interpret the footage properly? In this tutorial Andrew Devis shows how to use the 'Interpret Footage' function in PP and then how to use the correctly interpreted footage in a sequence that matches that footage. NOTE: The Interpret Footage function works in previous versions but the the new comp function demonstrated is for CS5 and above.
