ft-Filmic Contrast PRO for After Effects

ft-Filmic Contrast PRO is the new version of the “one slider contrast plugin to quickly get a cinematic look”.

This version is based on the same principle but with some extra features as :

  • Input channel selection
  • Color mode (per channel process)
  • Faster algorithm
  • Boost effect

The Pro and Lite version are now compatible with After Effects and Premiere Pro (CS4 to CS6).

The plugin has been converted to Native AE by Tobias Fleischer ! He is the man !!! 😉

matplotlab & numpy for python install on Mac OSX

I wanted to play with some python scripts which had dependency with those two and I couldn’t use the provided installer (didn’t work and don’t know why). So I had to compile it for myself, which is a pain in the ass… I actually couldn’t go trough with it.

But I found this shell script that does download, compile, install everything for you ! That saved my ass 🙂 . So in case you are in the same dilem (or in case I don’t remember about it in a few month :p ) here is the link for it : http://stronginference.com/scipy-superpack/

Run Davinci Resolve Light on small screen resolution

As you may know, Davinci Resolve light is out for mac. It is a free version of Davinci Resolve 8 with a few limitation.

 

From the website :

DaVinci Resolve Lite – Free

The free DaVinci Resolve Lite includes the same high quality processing as the full DaVinci Resolve, however it limits projects to SD and HD resolutions, two color correction nodes, a single processing GPU and a single RED rocket card. Stereoscopic 3D features, 2K, noise reduction, power mastering, remote grading and sharing projects with an external database server are features only offered in the full DaVinci Resolve and are not included in this free DaVinci Resolve Lite edition. Download Now!

 

Only issue though the interface is only optimized to work with a resolution of 1920×1080. So if you are playing with it on you MacBook Pro, you might not be able to see the whole thing. So here is a small workaround you can do

 

  1. Close Resolve
  2. Open Terminal
  3. type : defaults write -g AppleDisplayScaleFactor 0.80
  4. Start Resolve
  5. Tada…  😆
When you are finish to play with Resolve jus type the same thing in terminal but set the value to 1.0 instead of 0.80.
NB: you can set any value you want instead of 0.80
