This post (the first I have made for a long time, due to using Evernote instead) is about “A Lens-Changing Protocol for DP & AC”, where, in the Film Industry, DP = “Director of Photography” and AC = “Assistant Camera” (Camera Assistant).The word “protocol” refers to the fact that they have to interact, following an established etiquette … Wolf Crow‘s regular email-newsletter drew my attention to a presentation by the legendary Freddie Wong: Rocket Jump: How to Be a Success on You Tube & Beyond.In that presentation, he mentioned a free online “Film School”.
Or is there a BPMN expert out there who’s sensibilities are offended by any incorrectness in my use of precisely defined graphical syntax or semantics?
Or is there a better or more appropriate notation for diagramming workflows like this? Today I received information from Adobe’s CC (Creative Cloud) control-panel that there was an update for Premiere (among other apps).
Accompanying information states that it fixes some issues with audio and sub (nested) sequences. On the other hand I am mid-project(s) and don’t want to impede my current projects.
A good solution would be to do a system backup prior to updating Premiere.
Could do that at end of the day, so as not to impede project.
On the other hand, it seems that Adobe supports (kind-of) a way to roll-back to a previous versions: Using that solution, I obtained a 5.5 times reduction in file size, for a few-seconds test-clip where the color-chart was handheld against the landscape at the top of the hill.
The file looked good in Resolve where I was able to grade it ok and of course could have used it to encode MOV-H264.
Having absorbed all I could from all those sources, I evolved a “Business Process” workflow diagram via the y Ed app, using its BPMN graphical convention.
I had never even seen that before, let alone used it, but proceeded regardless (with my best guesswork) to produce the following, based solely on the aforementioned course and comments: Is it helpful?
Could a schematic like this benefit the design, analysis or explanation of such a practical workflow?
I can imagine something like it being used for training/reminding and for demonstrating to independent assessors that a company has a “quality process” is in existence, defined in a formal-looking manner (you could call that “Theatre of Quality”).
