      NAB 2019: Adobe adds blizzard of new features to P

      April 24, 2019, 8:57 am
      Indeed Adobe has. And what is impressive about it all is that, as the company’s Principal Product Manager for Video Editing, Patrick Palmer says, it’s less about the technology and more about the experience you have with the product as a user.

      Apple Motion 5: Slot Machine Text Generator

      April 24, 2019, 5:27 am
      A recent thread in Creative COW's Apple Motion forum led longtime VFX artist, editor, software developer, and business owner Simon Ubsdell down his own path of discovery on how to tackle this, providing a reminder in this first of a series that there's more than one fruitful route to creativity using Motion's extensive toolset for generating media, animation, customization, rigging, and much more.

      April 24, 2019, 5:27 am
      One of the smaller items of M&A action to come out of NAB this year could still lead to some of the coolest tools a little bit further down the line; well-regarded software developer Hedge, which specialises in making backup software for filmmakers, has acquired fellow developer Postlab.

      April 23, 2019, 6:15 am
      There is a playful exuberance to composer David Schwartz‘s work. PremiumBeat sat down with the man behind Arrested Development, Veep, and the The Good Place to talk about edgy, smart comedy — and why it’s important to score what’s not on the screen.

      Never Underestimate The Power & Impact Of Simple G

      April 23, 2019, 6:14 am
      In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Waves, we show you how to setup a simple gated reverb plug-in chain. Gated reverbs are a great way getting instant power and impact in a mix without lengthy reverb tails muddying up the entire mix. In this video we show you how to not only setup the gated reverb on an effects return but also how to change the tone and attitude of the send that feeds the overall gated reverb effect. Gated reverbs lend themselves very nicely to snare tracks, watch this free video to hear this effect in action using Waves GTR Stomp Boxes and C1 Gate.

      Thunderbolt storage - made bigger and faster

      April 23, 2019, 6:14 am
      One of the eternal rules in production and post production is that media will always expand to fill the space you allocate it + a bit more. There is always too much, and individual operators and small to medium post houses have tended to struggle on with NAS devices as they don’t have the room nor the budget for rack system storage.
