Watch, Read, Learn

We're sharing our knowledge and savoir-faire about motion pictures production. Here you can find docs, books, tutorials to learn, and we're also regularly teaching in several schools as well as giving lectures and holding exclusive master-classes.

We provide a comprehensive documentation for all of our tools, and even more. Because this is the 21st century, video quicktips and tutorials too.

Books

Duik: the Source Code Book
This book contains the complete source code of Duik. It’s a manifesto for open source software. It’s a way to physically show how open source software is different from other software, to show and explain how important it is, how even this small free software may weigh to change the world. This is briefly explained in the preface by Duduf.
Plus Vite !
Alors que le marcheur descend dans la vallée, par ce sentier dont il connait la moindre pierre, le moindre sapin, il découvre qu’un chantier coupe son chemin. Après l’autoroute, le tunnel routier, le tunnel ferroviaire, voici venu le tunnel à grande vitesse.
Quicktips

Quicktips are our very short tutorials, to quickly learn specific features and useful techniques. They're all free!

Talks

Each time we organize lectures, or give any form of educational speech anywhere, we try to record everything. A lot of talks are available here on video!

We’re also always willing to come everywhere in the world to give lectures, workshops, master classes in schools, in studios, or during events. For example, Duduf, lead developer at RxLab. and artistic director at Rainbox Prod. has already been in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Colombia, Canada, Taiwan, Mexico, Israel… to hold master classes and workshops.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you’d like to organize one of these in your school/studio/event…

Documents and Guides

All our tools are fully documented. You can find all guides on rxlab.guide and all API references on rxlab.io.

We also wrote some other useful documents, both in English and French, freely available because we think knowledge is meant to be shared.

English documents

Understanding openEXR compression methods.

Working with free software: the 100% free pipeline used at Rainbox (and other possibilities).

Understanding Colors and Color Management in the motion pictures industry.

The Green Guide to transccoding.

Introduction to Fuzzy Logic for developers (and curious people)

Documents en français

Guide pédagogique à l’usage des enseignants et étudiants.

Schools and teaching

We’re always trying to provide a comprehensive documentation for our tools, and other documents, along with nice tutorials or quick tips. But when it’s possible, the best way to share techniques and experience is by just meeting each other. Teaching, meet-ups, talks, are of great importance for us, and we’re always happy to come and meet you everywhere in the world, to share techniques and experiences.
We’re already teaching regularly in several schools in Europe, both in French or English, and have workshops or master classes in a lot of them.
