We're starting off the year with a BANG as we invite you to our January meeting featuring two amazing programs:
Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve & Nuke
January 11th, 2012 at 7pm
@ Showbiz Store & Cafe
DaVinci Resolve Demo
Hollywood-DI’s Managing Director Neil Smith and colorist Andrew Balis will be visiting the Los Angeles Post Production Group to present Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve.
The West Hollywood post house has used Resolve to grade and finish hundreds of projects, and will demonstrate key features working with Avid’s recently announced Media Composer 6.
DaVinci Resolve has been used to grade more feature films, promotional spots, documentaries, episodic television productions and music videos than any other color grading system, including box office hits such as "Avatar", "Robin Hood," "Quantum of Solace", "Transformers", “Alice in Wonderland”, “The Fighter” and “Hereafter”.
***Now that Resolve Lite, a reduced feature version with unlimited color correction nodes, is available for free, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the world's highest performance color correction solution.
What's So Hot About Nuke?
Nuke has overtaken the post production world as the de facto leader in visual effects compositing. It has been adopted by such industry power-hitters as ILM, Weta Digital, DNeg, Framestore, Blue Sky Studios, and practically everyone else.
In this presentation Steve Wright, a 20 year VFX compositing veteran turned master trainer, will lift the hood of Nuke to reveal those unique features that have made it so different from all that came before. This presentation is designed for all film and video post production professionals, not just compositors.
By attending this LAPPG evening event you too will know What's So Hot About Nuke!

$5.00 is requested at the door.
