  • Apple’s VR production patent by Tim Dashwood

    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...

      Vincent Laforet is another influencer who has has access to an iMac Pro for the last week. His blog post includes speed tests for Final Cut Pro X, DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Lightroom, RED Cine-X and Adobe Premiere. He also test to see how fast the new iMac Pro was at stitching the multiple sensor media recorded using an Insta360 Pro to a 6K stereo sphere. He compared it with his 2016 5K iMac and his recent 2017 MacBook Pro: I processed 6K Stereo (3D) VR Insta360 PRO footage through their I...

      December 12, 2017, 10:05 am
      Just as with the iPhone X, it looks like Apple are giving online influencers early access to new products and giving them permission to share their impressions before release. Marques Brownlee - known as MKBHD on the internet - has posted a video on the forthcoming iMac Pro. His 5.4 million subscribers are now finding out about the new Mac from Apple. He mentions that this video was editing on the new iMac Pro in the next version on Final Cut Pro X, 10.4. The model he's be working with...

      Soon: More audio timelines that can automatically

      December 7, 2017, 5:44 am
      In many video editing workflows, assistant have the thankless task of making special versions of timelines that generate files for others in postproduction. A special timeline for VFX people. A special timeline for colour. A special timeline for exporting for broadcast. A special timeline for audio. Transferring timelines to other departments is called ‘doing turnovers.’ Final Cut Pro X is the professional video editing application that automates the most turnovers. It seems that Appl...

      Film from a single point, then wander around insid

      December 4, 2017, 12:44 pm
      People wearing 360° spherical video headsets will get a feeling of presence when the small subconscious movements they make are reflected in what they say. This is the first aim of Six Degrees of Freedom video (6DoF). The scene changes as the viewer turns in three axes and moves in three axes. 6DoF video is stored as a sphere of pixels and a channel of information that defines how far each of those pixels are from the camera. Josh Gladstone has been experimenting with creating point cloud...

      Every Frame a Painting is a YouTube channel made up of video essays about visual storytelling. It has 1.3 million subscribers and millions of views. The creators Taylor Ramos and Tony Zhou have decided to close close it. Luckily for us they have written an essay on what they learned - including tips for others considering making videos in this form. All the videos were made with Final Cut Pro X: Every Frame a Painting was edited entirely in Final Cut Pro X for one reason: keywords. ...

      4K: Only the beginning for UK’s Hangman Studios

      November 30, 2017, 7:50 pm
      Some think that Final Cut Pro X has problems working with 8K footage. Hangman Studios has been making concert films with this workflow since 2015. There’s a new case study by Ronny Courtens of Lumaforge at fcp.co: Two years ago I made a conscious decision to get rid of all of my HD cameras. We decided that everything from now on had to be 4K and up. …our boutique post production services in London are newly designed and built for 8K workflows and high end finishing. Drawing upon 17 y...

      What is ‘Six Degrees of Freedom’ 360° video?

      November 27, 2017, 5:53 am
      Six Degrees of Freedom – or 6DoF – is a system of recording scenes that when played back allow the viewer to change their view using six kinds (‘degrees’) of movement. Today common spherical video recoding uses multiple sensors attached to a spherical rig to record everything that can be seen from a single point. This means when the video is played, the viewer can… turn to the left or right look up or down twist their head to rotate their view …as look around inside a ...

      Free plugin finds and tracks faces in footage

      November 25, 2017, 3:54 pm
      For legal reasons it is sometimes necessary to have to hide the identity of people in footage. ‘Secret Identity’ is a free plugin for Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects and Motion that works out where all the faces are in a clip. It can also automatically track their positions as they move. You can then choose which people's identity you wish to hide. The plugin can then obscure their whole face, their eyes or their mouth. It can also obscure everything but people'...

      Move over 800MB/s USB 3.1 externals, here come Thu

      November 22, 2017, 7:05 am
      There seems to be some competition improving the state of external drives. Most workflows are more than served by the kind of bandwidth available through the USB 3.1 protocol. There are always jobs that need more. Barefeats have done a new test comparing the fastest bus-powered SSD from last year with this year’s Thunderbolt 3 drives and enclosures from Sonnet, Netstor, AKiTiO and LaCie. See how fast they can read and write data over on the Bare Feats site. Although read speeds are get...
