    Checked out the 3D photos. Awesomeness. Now we need a tutorial on how to do it. I’m going to start looking. First comment above too. More awesomeness.

    Matt, Dave, Corey and Pete,

    Another great episode! Dave, that masking tips was really helpful. So helpful in fact it reminded me that I need to get my version of Photoshop upgraded to CS5! Still in CS3 unfortunately.

    I’ve been using refine edge a lot recently in a couple of headshots I had to take for our Director, so this kind of tip would definitely help in future shots, especially with the same background (which I had no say in!).

    Anyway, thanks again to all of you (including Scott and RC) for sharing your wealth of knowledge.

    It’s another great episode. I really like the mask edge refinement, will save me a lot of time in my compositing process.

  12. Rob Pullen says:

    Hello guys, loved the show as always. Loved Dave’s tip with the photo of the wall and the masking of the sky to enable you to fix the exposure problems a bit like a hdr type thing. Keep up the good work !!

  13. Paul Van Vleet says:

    Was that frog barf?

  15. Linda says:

    I like show better without personal attacks. Rude, not funny and a waste of my time. Save it for yourselves please. Missed Dave.

  16. Ron Moore, says:

    Don’t forget about the outtakes!!! Bring back a little of the lighthearted stuff like you did before you changed the format. Lighten up a little and and enjoy yourself.

    BTW. RC, your tutorial was fine.

  17. Great show as always. Look forward to getting Matt’s newest book.
