There may not be any more controversial topic in cinematography than high frame rates. Dave Stump, ASC, is a co-chair of the SMPTE Working Group on High Frame Rate Cinema, and hopes to help the industry make some sense of it. The upcoming releases of The Hobbit and Avatar 2 have highlighted a number of issues that the entire filmmaking community is going to have deal with, including exhibitors.

Dave wears a number of additional hats at other organizations. He is a member of the Producer’s Guild of America (PGA), the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), Visual Effects Society (VES), the Society of Operating Cameramen (SOC), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS). At the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), he co-chairs the subcommittee for Cameras, as well as the subcommittee for Metadata.

In other words, Dave is a man who knows something about standards -- and as he points out, "SMPTE standards and recommended practices don't extend to higher frame rates, so the HFR working group was a necessary step towards that."

A winner of an Academy Award for Technical Achievement as well as a cinematographer, VFX cinematographer, VFX supervisor and much more, Dave speaks from a variety of perspectives as he describes the early days of progress towards standards for High Frame Rate cinema.

Learn Avid's Media Composer Lesson 15: Effects: 3D Warp Tool
by Kevin P McAuliffe
(00:18:19) -- 9/27/2012

In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe gives you an introduction to effects work inside of Media Composer, by showing you the 3D Warp Tool. - It's the equivalent to the clip based parameter adjustments (Scale, Position, Rotation, etc) you can make inside of FCP or Premiere Pro CS6. This is going to be your "go to" effect while editing, and this primer lesson is a must, if you want to start doing effects work in your sequences.

by Kevin P McAuliffe
(00:18:17) -- 9/26/2012

Not only does he cover the basics of Path Text, but he also shows you how to animated an element on a path. - Kevin also demonstrates how to create organic paths withMotion Sketch, and he rounds things out by showing you how to create paths/masks from text layers, and then add a stroke effect to have more detailed control over the stroke than you would by just adding a stroke to the text in the Character window.

by Kevin P McAuliffe
(00:12:20) -- 9/25/2012

In this tutorial, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you, much like in the first tutorial, the ins and outs of the 3D Camera Tracker effect, but in this tutorial, he's using footage shot with an iPhone, as well as the underutilized Rotobrush tool. - Kevin also demonstrates a cool technique to make the graffiti blend into the background. This tutorial is more of what you would run into in an edit suite, with footage shot by an amateur videographer or DOP.

by Kevin P McAuliffe
(00:16:44) -- 9/24/2012

In this tutorial, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you - much like a lot of tutorials have - how great the After Effects 3D Camera Tracker is, but he takes his tutorial two steps further by adding a keyable object into the scene that interacts with text. - Kevin will also demonstrate giving the elements in the scene a bit of finesse to make you think they were part of the scene from the beginning.
