4K Notebooks Are Here

Cinema 4D and After Effects Interaction: Exploring Cineware

Acer has a new V Nitro Black Edition notebook. It’s a 15.6-inch model with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. They are not alone!

By Jose Antunes | November 08, 2014

The new laptop from Acer, which extends their V Nitro Black Edition Series, is a powerful notebook with what can be considered a huge (and strange) resolution for such a small monitor: 15.6 inches. One can just wonder how small some things will look on that tiny LED backlit IPS display. If you thought Full HD display was already difficult to use on a 15.6-inch monitor, imagine what a UHD display that delivers four times the pixels of a 1080p Full HD display will mean.

Does that Preferred Video Editing Software survey really mean anything?

It's probably just more noise in an otherwise useful article

By Scott Simmons | November 05, 2014

I let myself get sucked into a click-bait blog article the other day and it got me thinking about what I had done. It was click bait for a number of reasons but the actual content of the majority of the article was a decent summary of the non-linear editing tools we have available. With a title like What’s the Best NLE Software for Professional Movie Editing? you know it might likely do downhill from the first click.

The article came from a learning resource called Lights Online Film School and since it was a resource I had never heard of I guess the article achieved its purpose of getting their name and their website out there. I used the term click bait above and that’s, for the most part, a derogatory term and I think that might be a little harsh for the Lights Film School Filmmakers Blog overall as they have quite a few good articles there that aren’t click baity at all and don’t have sensationalist headlines.
