Newtek's TriCaster family has transcended being used solely for live production, and is now found in many creative projects where post production is needed.  The hurdle is now getting the media generated by TriCaster into various editorial platforms for editing. I've drawn up a handy-dandy guide for planning and using this media within Avid Media Composer and Symphony.  This is valid for any of the current TriCaster models which support Quicktime wrapped ISO recordings.

I set the bar relatively high for myself with my 3D wedding proposal. It was a cool notion, I'd never seen it done, and that seemed like a good enough reason to do it. The drawback to this is that I had to 1-up myself for the wedding...but how? There are an estimated 2,100,000 weddings per year in the U.S. alone; coming up with something unique and geeky would be tough. Something unique, geeky *and* media based. What I had not seen before?
