Membership has its benefits, so here’s a few screen grabs of Travel Channel’s upcoming America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions 3. Premiere will be this Sunday, October 26th, at 11pm following Ghost Adventures.
Had a lot of fun editing and grading this show. A whole lot of around the clock work. We averaged 125 shots or more per 4 minutes, which trumps the hell out of the 600 shots per 44min show average I read somewhere. Here’s the final time line before going to tape. Mind you, this is after conforming for the grade in Color, QC’ing flattened titles and what not, and syncing audio stems:
00:44:45;00 to the frame per Travel Channel clock. Ow, my brain…
And just because I love you guys, here’s a sample screen shot from the color grade. First pic is 30″ left hand Apple Cinema Display, second pic is right hand 23″ Apple Cinema Display:
Oh yeah, and here’s the two main errors I experienced during post:
Not too bad, but I recommend the hell out of getting 8GB of RAM for posting any 1×60 HD program. Got this show printed to tape by the skin of our teeth after crashing 4 minutes in on the first try. Seriously, yes, 4GB of 667Mhz RAM is worth the extra 1200 bucks.
