New Filters are a Breakthrough in Videography

Vashi Nedomansky edits documentary on PTSD with Adobe Premiere Pro CC

4K Notebooks Are Here

Vashi Nedomansky edits documentary on PTSD with Adobe Premiere Pro CC

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.

By Jeremiah Karpowicz | November 05, 2014

By Jose Antunes | November 04, 2014

Launched to celebrate Western Digital’s 10 years of the My Passport brand, the new My Passport Wireless may not be the fastest or cheapest external drive around, but having a SD card slot makes all the difference for those on the move. There’s a lot of space for your files on this hard drive, which works a bit like a pocketable NAS or Network-Attached Storage. Or your own Cloud on wheels.
