I’ve been furiously preparing to attend the upcoming REDucation course next week in LA, brushing up my RED knowledge and watching FXPHD courses ‘red102 comprehensive guide to red post workflow’ and ‘red206 red tales from production.’ As the universe pushes me deeper into 2k/4k work flows, color spaces, and 12bit lin 444 finishing workflows, along comes a Studio Daily email announcing The Foundry’s STORM, a new tool for RED/RAW post. And it’s available as a public beta (until March 11, 2011)!
Apparently it was released back on November 1 so I’m a bit late to the party, but better late than not partying. FXPHD even has a class available, stm101-introduction to storm, taught by filmbot of Final Cut User fame.
Tangentally, a quick trip over to Final Cut User revealed this awesome two part interview and REDucation promo with Ted Schilowitz talking about the upcoming RED Epic:
I’ll hold off writing too much of a review here since I’m still diving into the deep end of the red post production pool. When I come up for air I’ll formulate some thoughts with a bit of (hopefully work experience) perspective. In the meantime, I can say I’m a huge fan of The Foundry’s ROLLINGSHUTTER which I’ve used extensively for finishing Canon 5D Mark II footage so I do have high hopes for this new app.
