TOCPUG.ca’s first meeting in months: Had to go a little extra special for the best in the biz (our attendees)
“Marvelous, marvelous: C’est bon!”
Big thanks to Robert Alsop of Big Red Truck: http://www.redtruckproductions.ca/corporate-2/index.html for his great presentation on https://rampantdesigntools.com/free-download-sign/ ‘s motion templates. The ability to make use these templates/roll your own in Premiere: Adds incredible value to any project.
That’s a wrap!
Next tentative meeting: Monday, November 20th
There’s not enough in terms of presenters to warrant a
meeting for tomorrow. Most are in ‘crunch’ time/making fall deliverables (I’m on a death schedule now!) It’s a very busy time!
If you want a meeting in November, drop us a line!
I originally was going to leave a bunch of technical tidbits/camera/software…but that’s not what TOCPUG is all about.
So, I’ll leave you with this:
“Our songs will all be silenced, but what of it? Go on singing.“
FANTASTIC NIGHT! Great turnout, and lots of vintage glass to scan!
Based upon this article which mentions vintage lenses from the 1930-70s containing Thorium: https://petapixel.com/2013/05/03/deca…
TOCPUG offered free geiger counting services on the night of April 4th. Attendees who brought in their vintage glass, could see if it was radioactive.
Here are the results. Keep in mind, Thorium is an alpha decaying radiation, not great to keep near the eyes, but generally safe to use.
Lots of internet discussion over “Thorium lenses”, this summates it nicely: https://www.reddit.com/r/askscience/c…
