Here are some of the interesting post production articles we found over the last week.
MPEG has released a draft of its new H.265 encoding video standard. The new standard requires half the bandwidth of the existing H.264 standard so you have the choice of halving bandwidth for the same visual quality or increasing visual quality while keeping bandwidth the same. This is especially useful for 3D TV.
Autodesk has released a new podcast on iTunes for learning more about Smoke 2013.
Interesting breakdown of a bleach bypass look in DaVinci Resolve 9.
Interesting discussion about the lack of 'precision dragging' in Adobe Premiere and various workarounds.
Very detailed description of how the Arri Alexa handles color and how to work with it in post.
Interesting comparison between ProRes LT and HQ. I've found LT looks great by itself but when you place it side-by-side with a higher quality flavor of ProRes (4444 in my case) the difference is definitely noticeable to the human eye.
Scott Simmons gives a detailed tutorial on working with multicam in Adobe Premiere.
Director Joe Carnahan reveals his Daredevil concept trailer.
