The fall and rise of Final Fantasy XIV (

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.

The Amiga Demoscene Mixtape Vol. 1 (

A non-stop DJ Continous Mix featuring some of the greatest and most popular Soundtracks from the early 90s Old School Amiga Demos.

4k video of colorful liquids in space (

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

The Boo Lab (

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 (

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.

Slide Quake (

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

Stay in School (

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

Maggie Rutjens, “The Waking Bear” (

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.
