Enthusiastic amateur - worked as a presales engineer for a Silicon Graphics company back in the day, so did a fair bit of animation with Alias Wavefront, then Maya.

Still do video editing on various platforms, as well as sound editing.

Sonar and Cubase are my preferred audio platforms.

comment How to make a fake 3d effect (The Matrix 3d rotation style) from 2 video sources?
+1 this can look good, but it really won't look real. There aren't any shortcuts to this. You either need many cameras, or a detailed model to allow you to render the movement.

comment Filming a football game from inside the goal. Which camera is best?
They are pretty small. They are designed to attach to a helmet, or bike handlebars, or a surfboard etc

comment Frequency of refreshing for a green wall
Additionally, to help avoid hot spots, plan on a fresh drywall/plasterboard for that wall and when fixing, ensure sunk and smooth plastered nails. This will help you get a consistent surface for the green.

comment Is firewire better than USB for live webcasting - Video
Unfortunately it does make a difference in practice - I have only ever had problems with HD video through USB. I agree that you shouldn't saturate a USB 2 link, so it may be down to the way USB and Firewire drivers differ, but across 8 different PCs and various different video hardware, firewire is the only one which has worked 100% for me.

comment What is the best way to distribute an audio/video feed from a computer to TVs over existing indoor coax cable?
I haven't seen any cheaper, and ZV is the solution I usually see in my clients. Sorry I can't help on costings.
