Light Iron takes you step by step through the progressive data management and color pipeline of Ender’s Game.
From Michael Cioni:
I have been consistently asked to consult for companies over the years and enjoy evaluating tools and their impact on the creative process as part of my role as a filmmaker and facility owner. I can see my fingerprints and those of my partners in many of the tools professionals use. But when companies want endorsements, I never really know how to do that well. This case study is my attempt at un-marketed information. These are simply examples of technology I particularly enjoy working with. But this video was done without the consent or request of any of the associated companies mentioned.
• No company saw an edit before I uploaded it
• No company contracted me to do this in any way
• I was not paid for any of this information
This video demonstrates the process of:
1. Streaming files to Live Play iPads from Alexa transcoded files
2. Cataloging them wirelessly in Light Iron Server
3. Importing and merging the iPad metadata into the FCP-X project
(this includes Scene, Take, Circled information and any custom notation tags)
This demonstrates how 2 directors can review takes on an iPad and make different (perhaps conflicting) notes on their individual iPads and those can be automatically sorted in FCP-X and independently searched.
At Light Iron, we combine an outstanding roster of color, conform, and beauty artists with the most innovative post pipeline to service commercials, music videos, industrials, and webisodes with passion and speed.
