    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 Pro Apps and macOS High Sierra compatibility

      July 14, 2017, 9:06 am
      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. This gives Apple and third-party developers the chance to catch their b...

      Investigate HEVC/H.265 encoding using free chapter

      June 28, 2017, 5:19 am
      Apple have decided to stadardise on HEVC/H.265 video encoding in macOS High Sierra and iOS 11. Jan Ozer has written a book about how to encode video using the free FFmpeg encoding system. He has made the chapter on HEVC encoding from the book free to download: Below you can download a sample chapter of my new book, Learn to Produce Video with FFmpeg in 30 Minutes or Less. It’s Chapter 12 Encoding HEVC If you have already installed FFmpeg (which includes the libx265 encoder), visit ...

      Apple’s HEVC choice: Codec battle 2018?

      June 21, 2017, 9:39 am
      What does Apple’s choice of HEVC (H.265) mean for developers, users, viewers and streamers? Jan Ozer writes that it will take a year a so to find out. His predictions include: No major publishers implement HEVC/HLS support before 3-6 months after iOS 11/MacOS Sierra ship. This leaves the door open for a full codec analysis between AV1 and HEVC, including encode and decode requirements, hardware support, cost, IP risk, HDR support, software support, the whole nine yards. At least in the...

      HDR production: Five concepts, 10 principles

      June 20, 2017, 6:09 am
      It is likely that the next major versions of common NLEs will support HDR. As editors we will be asked about the right HDR workflow. For now it is a matter of picking a standard, following some guidelines and maintaining metadata. Jan Ozer writes: HDR sounds complex, and at a technical level it is. Abstractly, however, it involves just five simple concepts. First, to acquire the expanded brightness and color palette needed for HDR display, you have to capture and maintain your video in ...

      Steven Sinofsky runs down his take on Apple's 2017 Worldwide Developer Conference announcements in a Medium post. He writes that Apple’s announcements on Machine Learning… further the gap between device OS platforms (not just features, but how apps are structured) while significantly advancing the state of the art. On how the iPad will soon be the best solution for day-to-day productivity: Developers take note, as iPad-specific apps will become increasingly important in produ...

      Interested in cloud-based high end post production? Live events and TV shows need live production. A post on the BBC R&D blog explains the challenges of making a system that can do live TV production in a web browser. They are basing their research on a system ‘IP Studio’: …a platform for discovering, connecting and transforming video streams in a generic way, using IP networking – the standard on which pretty much all Internet, office and home networks are based.

      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 ...
