The Cinema 4D R17 Lens Distortion Tool
Maxon introduced a number of new features in Cinema 4D R17 when it was released last year.

Unless the user knows what camera was used to capture the source footage, the focal length of the lens, and the field of view, correcting that footage, or adding the lens distortion to the 3D elements is a tricky and sometimes frustrating experience.

AJA Ki Pro Rack Helps Journalists Boogie with the Peanuts Gang On-Camera at TIFF
Entertainment journalists got a chance to boogie with the Peanuts gang this fall during Fox's press screening of "The Peanuts Movie" at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Los Angeles based visual effects company BlueScreen LLC, working with Junket Productions and Fox, oversaw the on-site shoot, which captured 60 journalists dancing on-camera to Meghan Trainor's new song from the movie's soundtrack "Feels Better When I'm Dancing." The footage was composited live with a CG scene featuring a Soul Train dance line style of Peanuts characters, played back via AJA Ki Pro Rack. Each take was then recorded to CF cards, which Fox sent to press ahead of the film's debut for use in on-air segments about the movie. Read More
