iZotope’s brand new plug-in called Dialogue Match. And taking us for a spin was LAPPG’s own Woody Woodhall, CAS who shared with us the three elements of dialogue replacement, EQ, Reverb and Ambience or Room Tone. He explained how one would typically tackle each of these processes, and then showed how Dialogue Match could match sonic profiles quicker and more streamlined. This program is another breakthrough for the iZotope team and we were thrilled to have had the opportunity to showcase it at LAPPG.
After a break we had the privilege of welcoming Misha Tenebaum back to the group. Misha is the founder of Editstock and was the winner of LAPPG’s LA Post Fest. This time Misha talked about his latest invention, EditMentor. As an assistant editor, editor and teacher, Misha knows a lot about teaching the process of editing. EditMentor is a platform he has created where students have an interactive experience while learning editing. It’s a very exciting endeavor and we wish Misha much success and can’t wait to see the great courses and teachers as this innovative educational tool grows.
Back on the Westside after two months of being “on location” at SONY and ZEISS, we settled back in at the Community Room for a very full night. First up we had Derick Rhodes, VP of Creator Programs jetting in from NYC to share with us the exciting new updates happening at Vimeo. He shared a great new resource called For Hire jobs marketplace where you can find professionals to work on your projects as well as find work for yourself! He also detailed Vimeo stock and spoke about both licensing the footage as well as selling your footage to be licensed. And lastly, Derick shared Vimeo’s workflow tools including their Review page which is key to working collaboratively. After the networking break with some Halloween inspired treats we jumped into Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 16 with Mary Plummer who showed us in detail how the cut page works for creating speedy short form content like the cooking demo she walked us through. And then she switched over the Fairlight audio page where she showed some of the powerful tools in this fully integrated professional audio post platform now inside DaVinci Resolve 16.
