"I would stick with standard resolution video formats, like HD 1920 x 1080, or 1280 x 720.  I use 1080p as my master, but often upload to YouTube or Vimeo at 720p.  Those are 16:9 formats, but I see that you are using a 3:2 ratio - why is…"

"I colour correct each shot and save it as a lossless QT mov. But I wrote down the settings I used in AE so I can do them the same. If I loaded 20 shots in at once, and saved them as one lossless QT mov file, it would be too big to move or back up, I…"

Premier Pro & After Effects Color Correction Workflow - Question

Situation: I have a scene which has about 20 clips in it. After shooting the first ten, my lights went a little wonky, and I had to change the bulb. This affected the overall color of the subsequent shots. The first ten tend to lean toward a reddish hue, where the last ten are more yellow. After a couple of tests, I've determined that I can correct the color issue using After Effects.I've got a working edit in Premier Pro of the scene using uncorrected footage.Question: What is the best workflow for color corrections using PPro and AE?Is it best to do it one clip at a time using the dynamic link function and correct each clip on it's own in AE? Is it best to select the whole scene (all 20 clips) and bring it all into AE to color correct, and if so, is that something that should be done using keyframes to indicate where color correction should stop or change? Or, since it's pretty much the first half of the edit, select only the 10 clips in PPro and adjust those 10 in AE using dynamic…See More

"Once the plaster has gone through its reaction process to harden, I often warm it gently in the oven to get the chavant clay out. There is a Goldilocks zone when it is nice and soft and peels away from the mould, but not so hot that it is mushy."

"It doesn't harden at all. Non-drying, non-hardening. It has a variable softening point, but it's very narrow. That was to make it firm enough to scupt with but, with the heat of your fingers, flexible enough to bend."
