Useful tools for you guys

Ein alternatives Tastaturlayout, umgesetzt für Mac OS X. Gesünder tippen mit halibrand.de.

This is a tool I wrote for another student at Filmacademy Vienna. He had to convert thousands of JPEG-images he shot with a digital camera in three different exposure-steps to OpenEXR-images.

This is a tool written in AppleScript for optimizing the workflow of the postproduction process editing the movie "Inside America". It acts as a droplet and will delete any audio-track of one or multiple QuickTime-files dropped on it. I wrote this, because our clips were having an AUX-TC-audio track. After decoding this track to a real TC-track, we had to get rid of the audio, before importing to FinalCutPro. I will probably dedicate a whole page to the workflow in the near future. For now, it's just the tool for your time savings. BE AWARE, it will delete the audio-track. YOU WON'T GET IT BACK. USE WITH CAUTION.
