The fall and rise of Final Fantasy XIV (youtube.com)

A series of short videos tracking FFXIV from the project’s beginnings through to its disastrous launch and later resurrection as an almost completely different game. I could do without the crap TW jokes, but what can you do? Gamers are shitheads.

Once again, astronauts on the International Space Station dissolved an effervescent tablet in a floating ball of water, and captured images using a camera capable of recording four times the resolution of normal high-definition cameras

Being a Nintendo game, Super Mario Maker doesn’t have the greatest discovery methods for finding great new levels. The Boo Lab shows off some truly interesting courses.

Avid 4K Workflow Pre 8.3 (wordpress.com)

In this post I will briefly outline how to use Avid Media Composer and Apple FCP X for a cost-effective 4K post pipeline.

This came up talking to some students lately, who want to cut their A7S-acquired 4K footage in a pre-4K version of Avid, but still finish at full quality. The broad strokes outlined here seem to work well.

I played this simple Quake mod far more than was appropriate.

High school students are flooding the cafeteria again. This is cathartic.

Now that I have video embeds working (sort of) right here, why not embed this. It’s a music video I edited and colour corrected for Marcus McKenzie, produced as part of the Clip It initiative of the MRC.

It was a bit of a process, being the first real piece of work I got to do in FCPX. At the time I lacked a graphics card supported by Resolve, so the grade was done in Apple Color. I also had no straightforward way of getting the video from FCPX into Color either, so I used the ever-reliable “export the whole thing and slice it up in Color” method.

Now I can barely even look at the video, knowing all the things I’d fix if I had another shot at it in Resolve.
