admit it, I've had a love hate relationship with Compressor pretty much since Day One. I love the convenience of having an app tied directly to the timeline for encoding, but have always felt a little disappointed by the options and quality of what was offered for encoding that it offered. Still, I've stuck with it for certain encoding events (such as for dvd content, rough cuts, and archives at high bit rates). It's not that I believe its a bad application, just one that has languished...

2010 has been another years of wonders and blunders, but there are some products out there that if you own an editing/motion graphics/compositing system, you simply NEED to have these products to not only create great looking work, but to make your life easier. I thought I’d break this down into a year end countdown, and remember, these products are not in any particular order, as comparing them is like comparing apples and elephants, so let’s get started!

The "completely random Final Cut Studio stuff" blog I’m Not Bruce yesterday posted a little entry called Clients don’t understand Container Formats. It’s one of the most identifiable client-related posts I’ve read, anywhere, in some time.

As I’m sure you remember from last year, I’m a bit of a scrooge/grinch when it comes to Christmas. And frankly, I was looking forward to bringing you a Chanukah special instead of this, but this particular Christmas is a little nuts for me. So, I’ll get it next year, I promise (next time I’m hoping to do something New Year’s related... Don’t forget, I always welcome topic suggestions!).
