Re: HDCAM frame rate oddities with Machine Control

Many shows are shot on 16mm film and telecined to 23.976. It is relatively easy to add pulldown frames to make it 29.97, and often the 23.976 version is played back 4% fast for 25 frame PAL (up a...

Re: Noise reduction plugin recomendation

I agree that ReNOVAtor is way over priced. I wouldn't agree that the iZoptope spectral editing is better. iZoptope is limited to four second selections, ReNOVAtor is not. Removing steady state...
