"Good videos, but do edit them to remove the out-of-focus stuff. Drop in some clean shots to show what you are talking about. And try to cut out unnecessary footage, such as you moving around to reach for the hand sculpt. Get as much detail into a…"

Casting Silicone In Spite of Sulfur Clay

Looked around the site and couldn't tell if anyone had already covered this --I'm making a puppet -- my original intent was to cast in foam latex, but I recently got a sample of Echo-Flex silicone to try, and now I'd like to cast with it.Here's the catch, I already sculpted the figure with clay that I know is NOT sulfur free, but I haven't made the mold yet -- my question is: Could I spray the sculpt with a coat of Crystal Clear or some other sealer, thus making a barrier that would prevent the silicone from reacting badly? See More

warning rendering nef in after effects give incorrect colour

Hi guys…i guess this is just an issue for people how shoot on nikons in raw (net) then convert their footage. We did this for wombok using after effects cs5 but didn't check it against the original properly. Turns out it brightened everything and changed the colours a bit. So we tested it in apple motion….perfect replica. So it took like 3 weeks to render all the footage again using motion.So sometimes a $50 program is better than a $500+ programme.Just need double check everything.See More
