    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...

      Notes on Apple HEVC and HEIF from WWDC17

      June 6, 2017, 7:20 pm
      Apple are standardising on the next generation HEVC codec for video and image encoding, decoding and playback. HEVC (H.265) is a much better codec for dealing with video resolutions greater than HD. Here are my notes from Apple’s  2017 Worldwide Developers Conference sessions so far this week. Here’s what Apple said about HEIF in the Platforms State of the Union address (from 1:08:07): We've also selected a new image container called HEIF… HEIF supports the concept of compound ...

      Apple WWDC17 post-production and VR sessions

      June 5, 2017, 4:53 pm
      Here are the sessions worth tuning into this week for those interested in what Apple plans for post-production and VR. You can watch some of these streams live or review the video, slides and transcripts in the weeks and months to come. Interesting sessions include Vision API to detect faces, compute facial landmarks, track objects, and more In iOS 11, iPhone 7 camera depth data is now available to iOS apps - both for stills and as a continuous stream to go with video   Tuesday...

      Apple courts high-end post production with macOS H

      June 5, 2017, 4:52 pm
      Today’s Apple’s Mac announcements were prefaced by saying that the next version of macOS will not be about adding new features, but about improving current and adding new underlying technologies for future versions. Despite that, their software and hardware announcements seemed to be going after high-end media producers.  The new version of macOS (High Sierra) will include support for H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding) support. This produces the same HD quality at 40% of the data rat...

      VR, Final Cut Pro X and Apple WWDC17

      June 5, 2017, 11:57 am
      This week at their Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, Apple are making announcements about future products and services. They are also giving presentations for developers about macOS, iOS, tvOS and watchOS. Over the week I’m hoping to see updates relevant to VR and Final Cut Pro X at WWDC17. VR To mix reality (make it seem that graphics is interacting with the real world) it is useful to be able to record the distance of objects from the camera. This means graphics can be seen...

      The H.265/HEVC state of play

      June 1, 2017, 12:38 pm
      Apple seem pretty quiet when it comes to blessing the H.265 codec. It is a codec dedicated to better quality for large raster video at lower bandwidths. These kind of codecs are needed for 4K broadcast and streaming, and are useful for 360º/VR video distribution. Like DV, HDV and H.264, new codecs are designed to be efficient using hardware that is expected to be commonly available a few years after launch. That means that H.265 (aka HEVC or ‘High Efficiency Video Coding’) algorithms ...

      Automated video editing will very soon be ‘good

      May 30, 2017, 12:54 pm
      A team of Stanford researchers have published a paper on automatic editing of dialogue scenes. Their system may not automatically edit well, but it can now create edits that the majority of people will see as ‘good enough.’ This means editors have new competition. As well as being technically proficient, and be able to handle all sorts of political and psychological situations, they will have baseline edits to improve on. Computational Video Editing for Dialogue-Driven Scenes describes...
