This Is How Retouching for Video Is Done… I Think

This Is How Retouching for Video Is Done… I Think

Watch this video below and I promise it’ll blow your mind. It’s basically a music video that started out with a relatively dark setup – what seems to be “straight out of camera” type thing. As the video progresses, you can see that the girl in the video gets retouched to the point where she looks nothing like how it started. I do realize this is most likely CGI, and some of it is definitely makeup work, but it...

Make WordPress Send an Email when a Contributor Submits a Post for Review

Make WordPress Send an Email when a Contributor Submits a Post for Review

Situation: you manage a blog with multiple contributors, editors, and admins. While contributors can create and edit posts, there’s no mechanism to let the site’s editors know that a post is ready for review once a contributor hits the ‘Submit for Review’ button. I wanted to automate this process so that when a contributor is done with writing their post, he/she can just hit the button, and an email will be...

DSLR Video: RAW v.s. H.264

DSLR Video: RAW v.s. H.264

I never knew nor paid any attention to the fuss about Raw video file v.s. H.264 when it comes to DSLR video until I saw this comparison video that was produced by Dave Dugdale of Learning DSLR. Basically, you’d want to shoot raw video for the same reason why you’d want to shoot raw photos: to get more life out of the product, may it be edited or unedited. As you can see in some of the side-by-side comparison segments, the raw...

Veve Swimwear Photoshoot with Google Glass

Veve Swimwear Photoshoot with Google Glass

So this is another photoshoot that you don’t see everyday: the staff at Swimwear Veve got their hands on a pair of Google Glass, so the photographer, Glen Bowden, and the models took their turns wearing the cool piece of technology throughout the day that they had shoot in Gold Coast. I have to say, the final video really me want a pair for myself. Oh, yes, of course, the Glass too, whenever Google decides to make these...

Using jQuery to Dynamically Set a Static Top Navigation Menu

Using jQuery to Dynamically Set a Static Top Navigation Menu

The post title is a bit confusing, so I’ll try to explain the purpose here: Let’s say you have a webpage with a top navigation menu. Now, suppose you want to be fancy and have the top navigation stay static with respect to the page as the user scroll down. The effect is seen implemented on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google, Techcrunch, Woot.com, etc… I’m going to explain how this trick is done using  jQuery. Now,...

Yahoo! Weather App for iOS Is the Best I’ve Seen

Yahoo! Weather App for iOS Is the Best I’ve Seen

I’ve been on a quest to find the best weather app for quite some time now, and I think I’ve finally found it. I have an iPhone, and the native weather app has been put in my “junk” folder for almost a year now, because it looks so ancient and is so impractical. What I wanted was an app that is clean, elegant, and informative. “How informative” you ask? Well, I want to know how windy it’s going to...

Introducing the MōVI Stabilizing System by FreeFly

When Vincent Laforet made a post about a game changing device that was about to by launched in the film-making industry, I really didn’t expect much of it. Vincent said it was a “mobile” device, so I thought it was some sort of lighting device that you could carry with you while filming on set. I was far from being correct. Very far. Watch this video and you’ll know what I’m talking about.If you notice, the...

Wide Web World by Paul Wex

Wide Web World by Paul Wex

Who needs to travel and use quadcopters, hexacopters, or even octocopers to shoot some aerial footage nowadays? All you need is Nokia 3D maps and Final Cut Pro, and some beefy computer hardware. That’s exactly what Paul Wex did to produce the video below. Upon coming up with the idea, Paul realized that his computer graphic card wasn’t powerful enough to execute it. Paul then upgraded his setup and was finally able to put...
