Millennium Information

I'm surprised that people actually read this blog. But Fred Greene did and he answered the question about whether After Dark still releases theatrically. And the answer is "yes".
Sometimes I like to post this, the Japanese version of Millennium Crisis,
because it's so awesome.
To which we say "You go!" Rah rah rah!*
‘Robot dinosaurs from the future battle the Marine Corps on Mars!’
Actually, that sounds like a great idea for a picture. I'm going to get right on that.
So we're getting this error message when trying to render in Final Cut Pro. Apparently it's an issue unique to working in ProRes 422 but I'm not sure:

"The effect 'Looks' failed to render. Your hardware cannot render at the requested size and depth."

The answer, here, is to disconnect the second monitor and re-boot the computer. That worked for me at least. But it is somewhat irritating.

*Seriously. Anybody able to make money in distribution? I'm their biggest cheerleader.

I had a very similar problem when working with the clonehunter footage you gave me a while back.

Yeah, it doesn't seem to be an issue with the footage itself so much as how the effects plugins behave with the ProRes format in a timeline. Which is, obviously, really freaking annoying...

I thought the same thing when I read that!
