  • BlackMagic Design Press Conference

    BlackMagic Design Press Conference

    April 11, 2011, 8:20 pm
    Nab 2011 is off with a big band. Plenty of gear to see and plenty of event to attend.
    I started off this morning with a special invite from BlackMagic Design to their press conference . They had several outstanding things too announce.


    DaVinci Resolve 8.0

    BlackMagic announced a whole new set of features in DaVinci Resolve 8 that include multi layer timeline support with editing, and XML import and export with Apple Final Cut Pro. The new DaVinci Resolve 8 now includes OpenCL processing to allow use on Apple iMac and MacBook Pro computers. Thats right Resolve on iMacs, unbelievable support.

    New advanced processing tools have been added for real time noise reduction, curve grading, advanced multi point stabilization as well as automatic stereoscopic 3D image alignment. DaVinci Resolve 8 also supports the Avid Artist Color control panel and also offers ALE export to relink graded DNxHD files back into Avid editors.
    For colorists working on stereoscopic 3D work, Resolve 8 now includes a powerful new automatic image alignment tool that automatically aligns images between cameras to produce an a perfect 3D image.
    When working with digital footage shot in low light that suffer from electrical noise in blacks. DaVinci Resolve 8 includes a new high quality CUDA noise reducer which eliminates noise and helps make images perfectly clean. DaVinci Resolve 8 noise reduction is incorporated into the color correctors. This can be be used in any corrector node and limited or by color qualifiers, so noise reduction can be used creatively by the colorist.
    UltraStudio 3D

    BlackMagic supriesed us all with a new product at a very competive price. The UltraStudio 3D a compact and portable capture and playback with built in Thunderbolt technology.

      This week I test out the durability of the ioSafe hard drive. It's fire proof and water proof. I wanted to find out how water proof it is, so I flooded the drive. Check out the video below to see if it still works after the flooding.

      Caldigit VR 6TB Review

      September 18, 2011, 9:45 am
      Recently I had a great discussion with the Twitter community about picking up a new raid for myself as my older ones were now aging, and I was running out of space. Many people suggested a Thunderbolt drive. However Macbook Pro is only a year old and does not support Thunderbolt, and Apple has yet to release a new MacPro Tower. Thus I really did not see the need for a Thunderbolt drive yet. Enter The CalDigit VR.
