The first great leap into digital intermediate film required massive
investments in hardware, software, skilled personnel and patience. We can
now do much of the work in real time that used to require days (months) of
rendering. A look at alternatives to the "Big Iron" approach of massive
render farms, slow data tape drives and how to use real time HD video tools
for feature films. Does film work require 2K, 4K, or more? How does 24p HD
video compare? The presenters will discuss the systems & workflow they have
used on recent feature films.
