Intuitive Platform for your entire Media Library with Blu-ray Style Menus

By Jeff Foster | February 19, 2014

Well, this looks like an interesting concept - and definitely one worth investigating further if not actually supporting. I don't usually give much attention to crowdfunding products, let alone post an announcement or give my thoughts on one, but when I was approached by MediaZilla founder Jon Geddes about their campaign, I was intrigued to see where this was going. I think you may be as well.

iPad video editing finally supports translucent logo overlays!

imagineer systems mocha ae mocha pro motion tracking planar tracking podcast rampant design tools ross shain the post podcast toolfarm

Now you can edit video on your iPad and include translucent logo overlays via alpha channel.

By Allan Tépper | February 14, 2014

Back in 2012, I wrote about many editors’ frustration about iPad video editing apps that (back then) unfortunately did not respect alpha channel in logos they imported, to allow for translucency. Most producer/editors I know who edit 1080p video capsules for the web demand this capability, especially for their lower thirds. For many, this issue has been the only reason they have continued to use a laptop to edit video. This has now changed. For those editors and organizations, this change represents a quantum leap! Details ahead!

ENG Portability and Professional, Tunable, Light-Shaping Unmatched with LED Panel Lighting

By Jeff Foster | February 12, 2014

Designed for portability for the independent videographer shooting interviews, quick setup talking head studio shots or even portable green screen, Fiilex P-series LED lights provide a wide range of flexibility to match ambient lighting or provide enough light to give a decent single-subject studio shot on their own. With their proprietary Dense Matrix cluster LED design, and full-spectrum color tuning in a quality built fixture, I test a kit with two P360 lights and two P180E lights with all their accessories in different scenarios and see how they compare to standard multi-element LED lighting.
