RED Night

Join us as we devote the most of the night to the Red Digital Cinema Camera and FCP workflow. Scheduled to appear will be Curtis Harris from ProMax who will discuss the latest and greatest RED to FCP workflow techniques and file management. Also scheduled to appear will be "Red Ninjas,"Evin Grant, Brook Willard and Blair Paulsen, who will show footage and talk about using the Red as well as share the latest updates on the camera.

We will take a break from the Red Camera and allow Todd Prives to show off the just released and brand new Sapphire Plug-ins 2.0. High End plug-ins for high end footage.

Nick Jushchyshyn will be showing the Red Camera footage as it relates to Visual Effects. Many observers have been concerned about how the Red footage will key and track for larger productions. The Pixel Corps tested these two issues specifically and will show the results.

If that is not enough we still intend to have our world famous raffle and this month the prizes are huge.
