Righto ladies and gents, I’ve noticed already that some people have been having issues with Tumblr - if it won’t load from Safari then try the following:
-Go to ‘Safari” (written in the top left-hand corner next to the “”), then down to “Reset Safari, make sure everything’s ticked and…
This is the first link drop of “Dead Sky - Legacy”, feel proud Tumblr!
As a band me and my boys went through 3 different names and a couple of line-up changes and made a few songs in the background.
I’m not sure what’s next, but for now we’re just calling it a very long hiatus, so we’ve decided it was time we dropped a few tracks.. 12 of them (plus an 8-bit bonus for our fellow geeks) for free, ‘cause we love you guys ;)
It’d mean a lot to us though if you reblogged this to share with other people, maybe got a few people listening, then you never know what might happen next.
‘Til then, enjoy, and thank you Internet, for just bein’ so lovely ♥,
Anonymous asked: What do I do if I screw my aspect ratio in final cut 7 and want it back to normal without needing to restart my project
Ctrl + click the sequence, go to it’s properties and change it back to the correct settings - if you’re not sure what they are you can start a new sequence, drag in a clip that you know is at the right aspect ratio, it’ll ask you if you want to adjust your sequence to that, hit yes, then just copy and paste in your other items from your original sequence
These are two videos we’ve (Dead Sky) had done by students at Bedford College. I need to sort out some feedback for the one on the right. What do you think of the shots, lighting, use of depth of field, the cuts, the sync and all that good stuff and I wanted to include a section on what other people thought. I’ve already broken it down into what Michele, Ricky, Lexi and I (the band members) thought individually and what we thought as a collective but we’d like an outside voice.. or lots of outside voices.. too.
So if you could either comment on YT, inbox me or reblog and just leave a comment on there then that’d be greatly appreciated! And if you could reblog just to share it around so we can get other people’s feedback too it’d be a huge help!
Thank you very much Tumblr, you guys are stars <3
Being on ITV lookin’ busy. There’s no Knowledge as such here, but it looks like we know stuff..
Us on ITV ;)
I know this seems like an obvious one, but it’s only really obvious if you know it, if that makes any sense..
SO, just in case:
If you’ve shot your footage in standard definition (DV - “digital video”) and you’re capturing footage that was shot in the UK, on a UK camera that you intend to play back on devices in the UK then you want to use PAL (“Phase Alternating Line”.. don’t worry, there won’t be a test at the end..). So, as I’m sure you’ve worked out by the subtle use of bold, you’re going to select DV PAL.
If you shot your footage in high definition (HD .. makes a bit more sense than DV, doesn’t it?) and it was on a full HD camera*, you’d be using either 1080i (1080 means that in 16:9** the image is 1080 pixels tall) or 1080p (i is “interlaced scan” and p is “progressive scan”, that bit’s really geeky but there’s links at the end). The frame resolution (e.g. 1080) and the scan type (i/p) is usually written on your camera somewhere and on a lot of cameras it will also show it on screen when playing footage back.
So in short, check on the camera or on screen to see if it’s 1080i, or 1080p.
Finally, you need to know your field rate (measured in Hz). Typically it’ll be 60Hz, but if 60 doesn’t work, give 50 a go. But if you’ve got the paperwork, check it, it might be written in there, RTFM***.
SO, You know it’ll be in HD and if it’s in full HD it’ll be either 1080i or 1080p and the field rate will either be 60Hz or 50hz.
So, if you were say, at Bedford College using one of our full HD cameras*, you’d be shooting at 1080, it’s interlaced and has a field rate of 60Hz. You’d want HD 1080i60.
Now to select it in FCP7 is easy, hence “Easy Setup”.
1) Presuming you’ve got FCP open already, go to the top left where it says “Final Cut Pro”, click on it and go down to “Easy Setup”
2) You can either use the first drop down (“Format”) to filter your options or just use the second drop down (“Use”) to just select your settings. Look above for examples of what each part means. If you’ve shot on a UK camera in standard def’ then you’re looking at DV PAL (in America it’s DV NTSC) or if you’ve shot it in HD it’d be a variation on HD 1080i60 (at Bedford College, it is exactly that).
3) Click “Set-up” and then you’re good to log and capture.
There you have it, remember to set-up your scratch disks before you capture though!
Links and asterisks belowww..
*A full HD camera will shoot at 1080, which is 1920 pixels wide by 1080 tall.
A camera shooting at 720 (1280 pixels x 720 pixels) is also considered a HD camera, but obviously, with less pixels, the resolution is a lot lower than it’s 1080 counterparts and therefore doesn’t look as crisp.
**16:9 is an aspect ratio, it’s infact the most common aspect ratio. And basically all it means is that the proportions of the image will be 16:9.. so if you had a display that was 32 inches wide, it’d be 18 inches tall.

Consider yourself completely over-geeked about the situation.
When FCP is just hopping up and down.. taunting you.. and quitting “unexpectedly”..
.. Although, after the 10th time in a row, you’ll start to think that the Mac is the only one not expecting it..
Right, super-easy fix on this one:
1) Go to your user area, then “Library” and then “Preferences”
(e.g. “123123/Library/Preferences” or “jbloggs/Library/Preferences”)
2) Delete the folder called “Final Cut Pro User Data”
(Presuming you haven’t got FCP open.. ‘cause right now, it shouldn’t work.)
3) Empty your trash!
4) Open up Final Cut Pro
It should load up fine, you’ll also notice that it automatically recreates the folder you’ve just axed, but it will have reset all the preferences.
5) Go to text “Final Cut Pro” in the top left of Final Cut Pro, go down to “System Settings” and set up your scratch disks (because all your preferences have been reset you’ll need to do this if you intend on capturing footage.. or rendering.. or do pretty much anything actually.)
You should be good to rock’n’roll now. Good for you!

Right, this one is a major ballache.
In order to resolve it, simply:
1) Go to your user area, then “Library” and then “Application Support”
(e.g. “123123/Library/Application Support” or “jbloggs/Library/Applications Support”)
2) Delete the folder called “Celtx”
3) Download and unzip the following: http://adf.ly/5BE3e
4) Paste the “Celtx” folder in the “Applications Support” folder (replacing the one you’ve deleted).
NOTE: Make sure you’re pasting in the folder, not the compressed file!
That should do it, give us a shout at email@example.com if you have any problems.
