Toolbox: FFmpeg

This is an attempt at an idea I had to document the tools, software or otherwise, that I find indispensable. Tools can be used in many different ways and for different reasons so I'll try and keep these sort of abstract but provide enough links to explore further if you're so inclined.

It's not always the best solution for every situation, but I'll be darned if it can't handle just about ANY situation. To list it's abilities and format support is beyond the scope of this post but suffice it to say they are both... extensive. It's also free, open source, and runs on just about everything.

AJA Monitoring In Premiere Isn't Fun *UPDATED 4/14/15*

CC 2014.1 screws up playback with AJA devices in a really irritating way. It's stuff like this that really makes we wish Adobe offered some sort of stable release of CC for post houses rather than constantly pushing out updates that fix some things while causing others to break.

We had a RED Dragon project coming in that was going to be extremely After Effects heavy and quickly discovered this fun fact, which required an update to Adobe CC 2014.1 to fix.
