    Thank you both for the information and advice.

    I usually bundle up projects every couple of months and burn disks overnight. While not fast, I’ve cataloged everything with NeoFinder and I can usually find anything I’ve done over the last 25 years (CD-Rs and DVDs back in the day). Then the problem becomes, do I have a program that will open the file, or the codec? 🙂

    I’ve done a little more digging. I’m reading the man file on ‘cp’ (The terminal command). On suggestion is: “Note that cp copies hard-linked files as separate files. If you need to preserve hard links, consider using tar(1), cpio(1), or pax(1) instead.”

    One nice thing about using the terminal to do the copy is that the -R switch with ‘cp’ not only does the recursive copying with the folder structure, it also continues after the error of the failed alias copy. Finder on the other hand fails and doesn’t recover very well.

    So, I guess the answer is, that burning a FCPX project onto an ISO format where the project has alias links to media is problematic.

  • Also, you can use Set Channels and Curves.

    Set Channels: “Set Alpha to layer’s Luminance”

    then add a curve and adjust only the Alpha.

    If it becomes part of the Creative Cloud, maybe we’ll switch off of Vimeo.

    I was considering IBC in early December. I could run into the same issues.

  • C4D has the interactive render area, but it’s not quite the same.

    I’ve seen a third-party tool, but I’ve not used it.


    There is a tool to use Blender’s Cycles renderer with C4D.

    I’ve not tried it yet, but Adam Plouff’s Battle Axe has a new compression tool, Anubis.

  • I’m late to the party, but… Bob is right about the TBC. You shouldn’t have two of them in series. That’s an extra Analog to Digital to Analog (A/D D/A) step you don’t want or need.

    You might need a TBC remote for the UVW-1800 to be able to adjust the output of the deck. Scopes are important, but if you can’t adjust the UVW without the remote.

    Here’s my attempt. Could have picked a better font, but it was a nice diversion.

    After studying the original more, I see where I could have moved the anchor point a little to create a more sweeping effect on the “C”. There are other things I see in how the words dissolve on where they feel like they are behind and not just a non-additive mix. Perhaps building this in a color space that’s not linear might make it feel more like the original. Also, artifacts from the film transfer that was probably done on an old broadcast “film-chain” could be added.

    Brute force, animating it once in a pre-comp and then duplicating it and offsetting it, tinting.
