Cinema Test Tools for the non-Technical Manager – Post Installation Quality Assurance Has Begun

Cinema Test Tools is a free resource for the cinema industry, tuned most particularly for the non-technical manager. The tools include several DCPs, all with interesting means of testing the sound and picture quality for the interested by lightly trained staff. The lessons on sound and light are written to provide a foundation to communicate with the technician who must respond quickly and well to the information that they discover.

The key is a free Managers Walk Through Checklist that correlates with the many DCPs. It helps bring an understanding of the many nuances of the auditorium's situation in a straightforward way. 

Post Production is post and prior—a lot of work taking other people’s material from dozens of sources and fitting it all into some other group's needs. Very technical.

3D Workflow for Final Cut Pro - CineForm

Sample image

CineForm's Neo3D™, a significant development in 3D post production workflows, enables Final Cut Pro users to edit 3D projects in real time with full frame rate playback to an external 3D monitor. Traditionally, 3D projects are edited in 2D as independent Left and Right eyes, with a final 3D conform after the entire editorial process is complete.  CineForm Neo3D simplifies this costly, time-intensive process by enabling the editorial team to experience the 3D story-telling process by viewing in full 3D while editing.  This technique allows many projects to eliminate 3D conform entirely and print directly from the Final Cut Pro timeline to electronic 3D distribution or projection files.

The technology of post production explained; from ingest, networks and storage, compression and conversion, audio and video processing, edge storage and transfer...place or read it here.

If a few bits disappear, the oil company has to take tons of equipment back to the source and measure the sub-terrain again. The same production and post...except you ain't gonna get Clark Gable back to the shoot again.

CGI, X'Y'Z' to P3, there are so many things going on. Here's the news.

You know, I kept seeing that 3D stuff, and seeing that 3D stuff, and never getting it. Then I saw the same clips with a great audio system, and what do you know...the pictures looked better. 

There is a right way to do this and a wrong. There is faster and there is more faster. There are security issues and return on investment issues. 

Ingest...it just isn't the same anymore.
