Define Variable in Function to use GLOBALLY

Need to define a variable within a function, but you'd like to use it throughout your script..... here is an example on how to create it and how you can use it.
 ///  how to define a variable in a function to use globals  
 function myCode(){  
   $GLOBALS['magic'] = "what";       
 myCode(); /// -- run function   
 echo $magic; //<-- OUTPUT WHAT.  
 function test(){  
      echo $GLOBALS['magic'];  /// <-- output What

Cloning Brush Shapes

One of the keys to successfully using the clone tool is using a brush that does not have a perfect shape. Below is an image of some cloning brush shapes. If you create a brush shape similar to these and add some dynamics to the brush (ie. rotation, jitter), you will find your image to be a bit more believable and hard to spot patterns.

Quality Difference in Exporting Footage / Video

Here is a test I did using a RED Epic.   I took the R3D file and exported it at 3 different qualities to see what the difference would be color wise.

Below are my results as well as filesizes.

Looks at the difference between Animation Compression and H.264.   It seems to be a huge difference.

Scanning DPI

NOTES from the WEB:

DPI Formula for traditional animation resolutions

1920 / 6 field = 320 dpi

Output width in pixels / artwork field width in inches = scanning dpi

2048 pixels / 5 field inches = 409 dpi

A HD 720p 10 field scene would be:
1280 pixels /10 inches = 128 dpi

A 640 x 480 NTSC video 12 field scene would be
640 pixels / 12 inches = 53.3 dpi
