Advanced Systems Group Workflow Conference / by Les Stuck


Former collaborator Advanced Systems Group invited me to a VR/AI/HDR/IP conference in San Francisco. I met Blackmagic Design’s Tim Cuthbertson, who introduced me to Fusion 9 Studio, a beautiful “Shake-like” compositor with strong support for VR (spherical tracking, stabilization, and rotoscoping!). Colorist Shane Rugieri described Dolby Vision’s workflow for mastering in Rec. 2020 and delivering to smart video monitors. The highlight of the event was a presentation by Colleen Kessler, who shared practical experiences and tips about shooting sports using the Jaunt 360° video camera.
