Searching for 15 Americans in Concrete

The GSSI StructureScan™ Mini was critical in searching for fifteen Americans entombed under a concrete slab in a long abandoned Japanese Navy fortification. On July 29, 1938, Pan Am Airways flight #229 departed Guam bound for Manila in the Philippine islands on a routine trip bringing passengers and cargo from the US to Hong Kong. During this particulate leg, two Japanese Navy aviators stowed away within the M-130 flying boat and hijacked the aircraft making it the first areal event of it’s kind. The plane was then forced into radio silence and flown to the remote Imperial Japanese Base of Truk Lagoon where the passengers and crew were killed and buried under a concrete slab (as indicated by multiple eye-witnesses after World War II). Because of the StructureScan™ Mini size and portability as well as image quality, the combined research team of Americans and Micronesians used the device to search multiple slabs for fifteen human-sized voids. The very last slab scanned on our third trip showed a positive indication to which we hope to start excavation soon.

Create cinemagraphs in Final Cut Pro!

Today we’re going to learn how to make a cinemagraph. A cinemagraph is basically a still picture, in which a minor and repeated movement occurs, giving the illusion of animation. This technique is very popular on Instagram, where adding a little bit of movement to your still photos can really make them stand out. Making cinemagraphs is a great way to bring your still images to life, and they can be as simple or as complex as you want them to be.

by Mikey Bouchereau


These Flip Transitions were created when someone asked me how to do a 3D flip in FCPX. Sadly the default flip transition forces a solid background. So these ofter you 3 different types.

1. On edit going from one item to another

2. Start at edit, to bring items in from nothing

3. End on edit, to have items leave just pick from the pop up menu on which type of transition works best for you!

Here is a little video to see what the transitions look like:
