    Who's who in post production quiz

    February 18, 2013, 1:52 pm
    Part of the deal for me to be an official blogger at next week’s BVE2013 in London is for me to have at least two blog posts mentioning the event. This is the second. Given my recent popular post on how Apple defines itself I wondered whether TV and film post production companies are good...

      The end of public advertising

      August 11, 2017, 5:00 pm
      How much would you pay for all advertising to be removed from your view as you go about your daily life? All is it needs is the ability to interpolate what advertsing covers up, and replace all advertising with that. This TechCrunch article buries the lede: Facebook buys computer vision startup focused on adding objects to video Adding objects to video isn't as hard as removing objects, Facebook has bought a company that has that technology: Facebook has acquired a German company ...

      Apple Motion Tip: Setting Precise Widget Snapshot

      August 8, 2017, 9:33 am
      In 2011, Apple updated Motion to version 5. It's biggest new feature is the ability to make plugins for Final Cut Pro X. Part of that feature is the ability to control multiple parameters in Motion with a single slider. You can set the start and end values for the slider. Each Motion parameter value you 'rig' to the slider 'widget' can be controlled by the slider.  In this case, a Slider widget has been to control the width of a line and the font size of some text in Motion. The ran...

      Apple have been awarded a patent for 'content pods'  A content delivery system determines what personal content is available on the user device through connecting to available information sources. The delivery system then assembles the content pod from these elements in addition to invitational content from content providers. In some embodiments, a bumper message is included in the content pod to provide a context for the elements that are being assembled in combination with each other...

      Coming soon: Apple post production workflow lab in

      July 31, 2017, 12:13 pm
      It's good news and bad news for users of Apple’s high-end Macs. The good news: they are going to set up a ‘Pro Workflow’ lab. The bad news: they didn't do this years ago! Apple watchers suspect that up until earlier this year, the plan was that the introduction of the iMac Pro would mark the end of the 2013 Mac Pro - or any kind of standalone high-end Mac. The new plan is to make a Mac Pro replacement, which was described as coming eventually, but “will not ship this year.”...

      Animation tools not ready for satire prime time

      July 27, 2017, 5:32 am
      If you had an almost unlimited budget, could you produce a rich feed of animated satirical videos with a one-day turnaround? For now the answer seems to be no. When HBO announced a deal with American satirist Jon Stewart in 2015, one of the shows mentioned was an animated comedy show. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that in May this year, HBO said that they would not be going ahead with the idea: Stewart was set to work with cloud-graphics company OTOY to develop new technology that...

      What versions of Final Cut Pro X are compatible with macOS High Sierra? During Apple’s 2017 Worldwide Developer Conference, macOS High Sierra was announced. Apple has a public beta test programme, where you can sign up to try early versions of Apple operating systems before they are released.  macOS High Sierra is supposed to a version of the Mac operating system that consolidates on previous features and stability.
