    Free Final Cut Pro plug-in: Alex4D Time Remap effe

    March 19, 2013, 4:53 am
    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...

      Apple’s VR production patent by Tim Dashwood

      October 12, 2017, 8:59 am
      Within weeks of third-party Final Cut Pro X developer Tim Dashwood joining the ProApps team, Apple applied for a patent that changes the way computers connect to VR and AR head-mounted devices: ‘Method and System for 360 Degree Head-Mounted Display Monitoring Between Software Program Modules Using Video or Image Texture Sharing’ (PDF version). It turns out that Tim is doing more for Apple than being part of adding VR video editing features to applications. His work is part of the way m...

      Adobe Premiere used on big new 10-part Netflix TV

      September 13, 2017, 11:41 am
      It was tough ask for Adobe Premiere to tackle the needs of David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' feature film in 2014. In recent months, it has been used on a bigger project: ‘Mindhunter’ - a 10 hour David Fincher exec-produced high-end TV series soon to be available on Netflix.  Instead of a single team working on a two hour film, TV series have multiple director-cinematographer-editor teams working in parallel. In this case the pilot was directed by David Fincher. The way TV works in the...

      September 12, 2017, 9:16 am
      Interoprable Master Format is a system that allows you to specify all the versions of a feature film using a set of rules. Instead of rendering out every combination of language, aspect ratio, certification, distributor standard, you define how their rules apply to your movie. When a specific version is called for, it can then be rendered out automatically based on the media and the specific timeline included in an IMP (Interoperable Mastering Package). Even if you don't work in high-end ...

      Apple Goes to Hollywood: For TV production and mor

      September 1, 2017, 10:29 am
      Apple have had offices in Los Angeles for many years. The number of Apple employees in the area rose significantly when the company bought Beats Music in 2014. Now it looks like there’ll be more to the LA operation than music. The Financial Times reports [paywall link] that Apple are looking for more space in Culver City, Los Angeles County. The FT say that Apple is thinking of leasing space at The Culver Studios. Culver City isn’t exactly close to Hollywood, but from a production p...

      August 23, 2017, 9:19 am
      Will all Adobe video applications end up as panels in Adobe Premiere? Adobe doesn't see the need to make an application dedicated to the colour grading process any more. Adobe have announced that they are discontinuing their Speedgrade colour grading application: Producing a separate application for color grading was born out of necessity some 35 years ago – it was never a desirable split from a creative perspective. I don’t think audio post people would say the same about pict...

      We have file formats and codecs to store 2D video as seen from a single point. Soon we will need ways recording light information in a 3D space, so immersed viewers will be able to move around inside and choose what to look at, and where to look from. In 1994 Apple tried to kick off VR on the Mac using an extension to their QuickTime video framework: QuickTimeVR. As with the Newton personal digital assistant, it was the right idea, wrong time. Today different are companies are hoping...

      In reports coming from Asia it is rumoured that one of the iPhones Apple plans to announce later this year will have a face scanner that will allow users to unlock their phones without using a TouchID fingerprint scanner: The Korea Herald yesterday: The new facial recognition scanner with 3-D sensors can deeply sense a user’s face in the millionths of a second. Also, 3-D sensors are said to be adopted for the front and rear of the device to realize AR applications, which integrate 3...

      Apple spending $1bn on TV production - how much on

      August 20, 2017, 12:37 pm
      Last week the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple will spend $1 billon on making its own TV content over the next year: Combined with the company’s marketing clout and global reach, the step immediately makes Apple a considerable competitor in a crowded market, where both new and traditional media players are vying for original shows. Apple’s budget is about half of what Time Warner Inc.’s HBO spent on content last year, and on par with estimates of what Amazon.com Inc. spent ...

      The end of public advertising

      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 ...
