I'm surprised that the folks at PixelFarm don't have some examples with the software.
I use MatchMover Pro and that came with a few tracking examples.
Can't remember if Boujou did, but that's better for non greenscreen tracks.

Tim Dobbert's book on Matchmoving comes with some one or two bluescreen clips for tracking practice.

I'll dig around my files to see if there's anything not covered by NDA that I can share.

Good luck.

what $$ figure do you consider to be cheap ?

16mm telecined to dv looks good ..BUT you shot 16 !! why not give it some depth !!! there must be a place up your way that will do digibeta type transfer to hard drive or HD to hard drive or if you don't mind HDV??

check out the OMDC's (Ontario Media Development Corp.) website at and click on their production guide. Most post houses are listed in there as well as freelancers. Another source would be , they have Canada wide listings.

Need Intern/Assistant in Raleigh, NC

If anyone lives in Raleigh and is just starting out and wants some good experience, let me know and mention you heard it from DVi! I'm looking for some help in the new year. Don't post me via profile. Thanks. Kevin


Video Production Assistant Needed

Need someone who is ambitious and wants to learn a lot about video production and editing. This will be a 30 hours per week internship for 3 months as a trial period (with negotiable pay depending on experience/knowledge/etc.) that will hopefully turn into a full-time paid position. This company specializes in mostly corporate video, but is branching into more entertainment-based media. Located in North Raleigh.

Basic knowledge of editing and shooting required using Mac-based software including Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Photoshop, After Effects, etc. Intern/employee will be responsible for loading footage, basic editing, basic DV and HD shooting with Canon cameras and various office organization. An interest or skill in marketing/sales assistance OR a knowledge of multimedia design is a great bonus.

Ambition and enthusiasm are the main qualities I am looking for. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to work hard, learn a lot and have access to great equipment and educational resources.

Work period begins early January. Send resume and letter of why you want this job/internship via email. Thanks!

Remember the rule of video production; Good, Fast, Cheap ... Pick two.
Since a Telecine suite starts at about $250k then generally are not cheap, however they are fast & good, especially in Toronto.
I don't remember how many have 16mm gates, but probably most of them.
The big boys are, Deluxe, Eyes Post Group, Command Post & Transfer, D.A.V.E, Casablanca Magnetic North. There are probably a few I have missed of have merged in the past couple of years, but these are the big boys.
Depending on the quality of the original footage you can probably order a one light transfer and get good results and colour correct in post. If the footage needs some TLC then things get more expensive.
Good Luck.

Kathy. One suggestion that might help you add business. If you could get a simple tape deck or two so you could transfer Super 8 to DVCam, DV or DVCPro, I would think you might get more people here excited.

My wife just bought a Canon 814 Auto Zoom Super 8 for me for Christmas and I plan on putting a few rolls through it right away. I will be wanting them dubbed to tape for editing in my Avid at 24 frames.

If you picked up even a Sony DSR-11 deck, you could offer DVCam and DV/MiniDV video dubs. They run about $1700 or so new. DVCPro would be another good option but they are a bit more and only record the one, DVCPro format.

You will have to let us know what the method is you use to transfer to DVD/tape. Most of us would love to see frame scanning rather than simply a camera shooting a projection screen.

Keep in touch,

Potential music video help this spring

This isn't quite in the bag yet but I think I am going to get permission from a goth band to do a short video for them. I may shoot Super 8mm film but I may also go DVCam or AG-DVX100. Not sure yet on the format but, I have created a web page in a plea for help on this monster.

The musical piece is long for a typical MTV piece so I don't know that it would even get airtime anyplace. It's too good to chop up and I just plain like it like it is. It's 6.5 minutes long.

You can read all the details here:

If anyone has anything they want to mention or services they would like to donate in the central Ohio area, I'll probably be game. Planning to get to work when the weather lightens up. No firm schedule yet. Too much up in the air at this point.

This is a pet project, not a paid one. I want to help get these guys some exposure as well as do a great job I can point to later in life. A portfolio/experience builder.

I will update the page as time goes by and we get closer to doing something with this.

Thanks everyone, enjoy the music. Wait till you see where they are from.

Thanks Richard. Someone dropped off a roll of Tri-X and Kodachrome 40 (refrigerated) for me to play with when my wife let's me have it Christmas morning. I'm pretty excited.

Check out this thread I just started. I know several guys still shooting Super 8mm here in town so I will be learning from them for a while.
