comment Split video into equal duration segments
Frames inside a GOP need all the other frames in the GOP, so if you cut a GOP the frames that are left don't have all the needed information. Technically you could re-encode just the last GOP but I don't think there is a tool that would do this for you.

comment How to fit 720p video on a 1080p container?
Upscaling would be preferred in most cases if its just one shot. Quite a few productions do ultra slow-mo scenes with a GoPro and adjust the GoPro footage to the rest.

That wouldn't help you with frame accurate cutting. The issue is that there are GOPs. if you split a video within a GOP you will destroy frames at the end of your clip.

comment Ripped DVD Video Playback Stutters, original DVD does not
The ripping procress in your case is not lossless. You are not simply copying the dvd content your are transcoding it into a whole new format. That results in different bitrates, even in the same app.

"WebM intends to follow that guidance", which hinted that they will add this feature at some point which they apparently did now.

comment How was this magic smoke animation done?
I'd say particular. Form is more for animating "surfaces", while in this case you can probably achieve similar results with form, you will have more freedom with Particular.

comment Does version control have a part in the video production workflow?
Well thats the ideal case, if your project ends up with a larger project file you just can't upload revisions as often depending on your connection. A cloud storage software scales perfectly, git will eventually run into troubles. Commit messages are definitely a plus for git though.

After Effects has a built-in particle system. While its not exactly the most advanced one, you can certainly generate smoke.

Do you really need to automate this or is it a one time thing?

comment How long should the maximum length of an exr sequence be?
Yes, you might want to try to use a newer version of fnord'S OpenEXR plugin: fnordware.com/OpenEXR Its free and included in the trial download for ProEXR for PS.

comment How long should the maximum length of an exr sequence be?
That is a strange behavior. It really does sound like a bug. I've used image sequences that exceeded more than 10k frames.

comment Is there a way to directly save DNG Sequences to 16bit exr Sequences in Photoshop or After Effects?
Photoshop also has OpenEXR but only when your image is 32bit. Otherwise it doesn't show up as a save option for whatever reason. Maybe try the Photoshop Trial of ProExr, should allow you to save as 16bit aswell.

comment 3D composition shows up as 2D in main project view?
Exactly, you just need to link the cameras. Everything else is for more advanced effects.

comment Exporting to .mov from premiere cc? queuing as .mxf?
Maybe you dont have QuickTime installed? Could explain why it chooses a different format as a sort of fallback.
