1. Entropy - IdN Magazine v20n2


    from Physalia / Added

    Entropy is the randomness of the microscopic constituents of a thermodynamic system, and a measure of the loss of information in a transmitted signal or message. It is heat death, it is inevitable social decline and degeneration- in a closed system, it is accountable chaos. 2000 pictures compose this piece- that is, 2000 perfect different water drops into which we mapped an animation. Droplets that behave and look strangely similar at the stage of less entropy, and become more disordely as they splash. You can check out the making of here: vimeo.com/65155966 We have also started a new blog with this piece, with an in-depth post about it.

      This is the story behind how Dashing Dish™ got started. I hope this video inspires and encourages you to find a new way to look at health and beauty, through God’s eyes. It’s so important to me that women know the truth about who they are in Christ, and hope to show you just a glimpse of what God has taught me over the years. Also, a big special thanks to the GoToTell team for helping the vision for the video come to life!

        All Bean Maxwell wants is for the picture on his foyer wall to hang level. But will his dedication to the little details cause him to lose sight of the bigger picture? This was completed at Ringling College of Art and Design in 2009 as my senior thesis in the Computer Animation program. I am responsible for all work shown.

        • Castle. Sweetening the Sony A7S using Slog2 + Pro Gamut + Film Convert.

          As I try to get more and more from the Sony A7S, I learn more and more. And I've found that using Kholi's modified PRO picture profile, slog2 as the gamma, and use filmconvert in post that you can get beautiful results. The big secret I feel is to use s log2 on the camera and the color matrix of PRO, not S GAMUT. Thanks to Kholi, he lead me to better color thru the pro matrix, even though the other pro sony video cameras use s gamut. Much more pleasing than the S gamut color setting in terms of skin tone and saturation. Here's the cooking ingredients to put into the menu: Slog2 PicPro from Kholi - Black Level: 0 Gamma Slog: 2 Black Gamma > Range: Middle , Level: -3 Knee > Mode: Auto , Auto Set > Max Point: 95 , Sensitivity: Mid Colore Mode: Pro Saturation: +8 Color Phase -2 Color Depth > R+1, G-1, B+2,, C-2, M-1, Y-3 Detail > Level, -5 Adjust > Mode; Manual, V/H Balance: -2, B/W Balance Type3, Limit: 0, Crispening:0, hi_light Detail: 0 White balance > Manual > Grid setting B 1 (one to the left) You don't have to follow it perfectly, but overall it can get to some stunning results. And the secret to any log recording is post. And I'm the biggest fan of the Film Convert program to process the film - http://www.filmconvert.com. This is my secret weapon. Download and play with the different camera profiles. Then save the new files. I used Film Convert Arri Alexa Log C profile for grading. FilmConvert setting is Arri Alexa as the camera. logC. film stock is Fuji Film 8543 Vivid. color 93. curve 100. size 35mm full frame. grain 0. it can be a little too punchy in places, but overall gives a nice creamy look. the banding is interesting. it doesn't really bother me too much. I think shooting to 4:2:2 on the external recorders will help with this. The whole 8 bit vs 10 bit thing isn't as big of a deal as most people think. I've used 8 bit for so long and have graded fine off of it. 10-bit is a modern camera thing! I like it better than the sony f55 lut fiilmconvert has - has more creaminess. When you go to edit, remember to add some pretentious classical music. And a sunset shot! That's pretty much it - it's pretty simple to make this camera shine - and I'm excited more and more to see everyone's results. Please ask me some more questions! Lets make the imagery out of your new camera as good as we can! I really believe in this camera.

                Questioning the point at which a habit becomes a clinical disorder, this short film documents the process of ordering and the compulsion to do so. The making of this film: it took 13 hours in total to shoot all the images for the stop-motion, 286 baked beans and a lot of willpower.

                      Brian traveled to China over the summer of 2008 to receive a second round of adult stem cell therapy for the treatment of symptoms associated with Ataxia. A muscle wasting neurological disorder, Brian's SCA1 saw marked improvement a second time around. Adult stem cells are not a cure - but may offer quality-of-life improvements to patients with few or no alternatives. Hospitals in China now treat a wide range of spinal cord injuries, neurodegenerative conditions and are rapidly tackling cardiovascular conditions as well. While we have hope that adult stem cell therapies will be available in many other countries in the near future, many conditions are currently treated through providers in China. Follow patients and read experiences at www.StemCellsChina.com.
