[vox] SpectSoft's RaveHD & Linux used to make "Sin City" movie



Legendary indy director uses Linux to edge out ILM
http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS8217660071.html

  "A Linux device helped legendary independent filmmaker Robert
  Rodriguez (El Mariachi, Desperado, Spy Kids, Once Upon a Time in
  Mexico, and others) win the race with ILM (Industrial Light and Magic)
  to create the first movie ever to use a digital format supporting
  full-bandwidth RGB. Rodriguez's Sin City, which opens April 1, was
  shot in Dual Link, or '4:4:4' format, and transferred between tapes
  and hard drives using SpectSoft's Linux-based RaveHD DDR (digital disk
  recorder)."


Cool beans!  If folks recall, SpectSoft has come to speak at LUGOD not once,
but twice! [*]
