Web / Some AMAZING Red Camera footage
« on: September 26, 2009, 04:48:27 PM »

This is what the future is capable of, and this is what you can do with a bit of saving and enough time for the RED Scarlet to penetrate the indie market.

Absolutely amazing footage.


Reviews / HV40 CAMCORDER

Hey AVFX'ers. I've got my eye on a HV40 Camcorder. Let me know what you think, is it a worthy purchase? Are the specs ok?

External / Boss at Good Guys Wants Casuals! $19/hr 1.5x Sun + Commission

It's that time again, last time no one replied or seemed interested in a job. Weird considering how many animators complain about money.

If you want casual work, starting slowly, maybe once every fortnight, and then leading up to xmas to full weeks with a casual rate and commission.

Then go in, hand in your resume, and tell them Keaton sent you (let me know you did aswell :-). This literally will make a difference as he only employs through friends of workers.

If you can tell a Wagga layman what a mega pixel is, or explain to someone how songs go on an ipod. your pretty much set.

Whinges / The old Dell and Xenon computers
« on: June 10, 2009, 10:58:26 PM »
The dell computers are litterally unusable. 20 minutes to start up premiere.

One of the xenon computers (with the mitsubishi monitors) doesnt' work with dual screen.

And the xenon i'm typing on doesn't open premiere.

Why have them here if no one can use them? I think they need re imaging and maybe cleaning (literally the dust blown out of them) i'm sure they'll come up good.

And then they may be a viable source for audio recording or premiere editing.

Suggestions / SyncToy
« on: May 27, 2009, 03:26:54 AM »
I've been using Microsoft's Sync Toy 2.0 for a bit now and can't do without it.

It's a small 8mb free application that sync's folders from computers to thumb drives or any portable media.

And that's really really good for say, a large Maya subnetwork of folders. Rather than copying the entire folder i just open the application which takes half a second and press run. And only the changed files are synced, but you can also press preview and see what it's going to do before running.

Where i'm heading is a suggestion that this should be installed in all the lab computers since carrying project files around on a thumb drive is heavily promoted.

Or is there already something like that installed?

Movies / For those interested in zeitgeist

Recently i visted Vatican city less than a year ago.

I'm not going to go into any explanations, but i did some of my own research there and discovered startling images and artworks.

This sun symbol was taken at the back of the holiest church in the world. It is also hidden and i found it very hard to lean over the barrier and take this without anyone noticing. it resides above where the priest reads his sermons, but they don't do it in that area anymore.

there are sun symbols everywhere, and every non-modern depiction of jesus' followers etc had a sun symbol behind their head, they don't do that anymore.

And as they say amen at the end of a prayer "AMEN: An Egyptian divinity … He was worshipped … as Amen-Ra or ‘Amen the Sun’."

Now this image is the most startling.
I had to line up for ages to get into this room, with guards everywhere. and a constant yelling not to take photo's.

I presumed it was because you could buy photo's so in the souvenir shop i wanted a picture of this, but every single one i could find has this guy that Michael Angelo painted CUT OFF.

You can only go one way because there are guards on every corridor guiding people. I managed to pretend i was walking backwards to take photo's of the corridor ceiling and then move to the next guard and repeat this until i got back to the chapel.

With a few adjustments on my camera i took this blurry photo that has been enhanced to show more clearly.

Why is this picture of a GIANT FISH so important?
Jesus was at the beginning of the pieces era, which is represented by a FISH. the era before this is represented by a woman holding sheathes of wheat.
Apparently jesus was born in Bethlehem, which literally translates to "House of Bread", hence the wheat.

now i'm not going to go into any sort of conspiracy theory here, but it's interesting for people who want to know about it, and this is just a taste of the strange behaviors of the catholic religion.

why is 2012 so relevant in most historical/religious manuscripts, like the Mayans for e.g. Because we are literally going into a new 'era' on the astrological chart. horoscopes have nothing to do with this. they are outdated by the earth's tilt.

Will anything happen in 2012? Who knows, but one thing will stay the same, and that's the hidden astrological misinterpretation which is now known as 'the bible'.
