    Free Final Cut Pro plug-in: Alex4D Time Remap

    March 15, 2013, 12:38 pm
    Last year I made a set of generators that could be used on video clips to get more precise control over speed changes using an animation graph similar to that available in older versions of Final Cut Pro. Since the 10.0.6 update to Final Cut Pro, the generators I uploaded in March 2012 no longer...

      Back to 1.0: Interview with Adobe Premiere, Final

      August 26, 2015, 9:21 am
      If you spent time trying out interesting new Macintosh software in the early 90s, you might recognise the name Randy Ubillos. In those days software companies used to credit application developers in the splash screen they displayed while the software started up. Bill Atkinson was credited as MacPaint’s creator in 1984, Thomas and John Knoll were amongst those credited with Adobe Photoshop in 1990. I saw Randy’s memorable name for the first time in the splash screen for Premiere 1.0 when...

      Logic Pro X 10.2 update includes direct share to A

      August 25, 2015, 12:20 pm
      The big feature of today’s 10.2 update for Logic Pro X is Alchemy - ‘the ultimate sample manipulation synthesizer’ The more intresting one for other post professionals is the ability to export productions directly to an Apple Music Connect account. Imagine if future versions of Final Cut Pro X and Motion had an equivalent feature: ‘Share directly to Apple Video Connect’ Here are the other features in the update: New tabbed Transform Pad and X/Y Pad Smart Controls for Alchemy ...

      Optimal picture size for viewing HD and 4K at diff

      August 25, 2015, 10:04 am
      When you deciding which TV to buy, manufacturers talk about the right screen size for the distance at which you watch the picture. This is based on the image taking up at around 30º of your field of view - this allows for less distraction from outside the TV picture area and allows for people with 20/20 vision to get the benefit of HD resolution - to see pixel-level detail. To get the benefit from the larger number of pixels in 4K TVs and displays, suggestion is the image should take up ar...

      Apple collaborating with YouTubers: To promote wha

      August 24, 2015, 12:22 pm
      MacRumors reports that Apple is in talks with popular YouTube channels to involve them in a big promotional campaign:  Although their styles don't mesh together, Apple could be creating a new ad campaign, possibly for the upcoming "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus," that centers on creatives from YouTube using the company's new products as the main tools for shooting, editing, and publishing content for their channel. I don’t think MacRumors understands what YouTubers could do f...

      4DX Cinema: Turning movies into rides

      August 24, 2015, 9:14 am
      Judith Allen runs down the pros and cons of adding ‘in-seat’ theme park effects to the cinemagoing experiance: I find myself now living near the UK's first 4DX cinema in Milton Keynes. I went to see Ant-Man to try it out. The effects were actually turned on during the Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation trailer beforehand, which worked quite nicely to acclimatise everyone to it and get the 'surprised' shrieking over and done with before the feature. However, the intensity of a traile...

      FiveThirtyEightScience on why it is hard to convince people of things if they’ve already decided. You have to be sure before you destroy what you already know and substitute it with something new   Simply exposing people to more information doesn’t help.   If you want someone to accept information that contradicts what they already know, you have to find a story they can buy into. That requires bridging the narrative they’ve already constructed to a new one that is bot...

      Time is running out to get your tickets for the Amsterdam Supermeet being held on Sunday 13th September to coincide with the 2015 IBC trade fair. These days people expect to find out all they need to know through internet research. That way means they miss out on the personal touch. Trade fairs and public meetings like this mean you can ask tough questions of people who should know the answers. You also share the corridors, stands and social gatherings with people like you - who you can lea...

      August 19, 2015, 1:52 pm
      These days big developers are looking to create platforms: hardware and software environments where third-parties can add features through their own hardware, software and services. One aspect of the choice between choosing Apple’s Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro is what you think of their take on how to build an ecosystem around their applications. Adobe popularised the use of plugins for software when they opened up Photoshop for developers to make effects to apply to images. Ap...

      UK TV delivery standards: 2015 Title safe area spe

      August 18, 2015, 2:24 pm
      Since October 2014, all delivery of TV programmes to UK TV stations must be by file: no video tapes are allowed any more. As part of standardisation, the Digital Production Partnership has been set up to keep the post production industry up to date with TV show technical specifications. As these specs apply to new UK production, they are likely to apply to any TV programmes made elsewhere bought by UK TV networks. If you have been charged with preparing an output destined for UK TV, visit t...
