Should Professional Editors care about FCPX (again)?

matrox recording app videoguys vs4 vs4 recorder

Sam Mestman thinks so: he's betting his company on it. I think he's right. Attend his demo 25 January and make up your own mind.

By Adam Wilt | January 15, 2014

Last October Kevin McAuliffe told us in two articles that Final Cut Pro X wasn't worth caring about: "FCPX is still not ready for professional use". He caught a lot of crap for saying so, but he was right... in a very constrained context (which, if you read his rants, he carefully... Read More

How to get it. What to do with it.

By Don Starnes | January 14, 2014

Imagine this:

It's the Producer's Invitational Pancake Breakfast. Large hotel ballroom: happy grips, electricians and DPs are pouring batter and flipping pancakes for their guests. Directors, camera assistants and editors are distributing steaming paper plates and coffee. Just as the producers are cutting into short stacks with their plastic forks, all of the doors are locked.

Our favorite features in the December Creative Cloud update

By Chris and Trish Meyer | January 14, 2014

Last month, Adobe released another nice incremental update to their video software, including After Effects CC. As motion graphics artists, there were a couple of major improvements to existing features that caught our eye, as well as a lot of other tweaks and enhancements. Adobe has already released an exhaustive list of all those changes; for our take (including a movie demonstrating some of these tweaks), read on.

Secondary animation and the principles of animation

matrox recording app videoguys vs4 vs4 recorder

for After Effects

By Rich Young | January 14, 2014

Secondary action is ancillary to the primary action of an animation. Secondary actions help to create the illusion of life, heightening interest and adding some realism – whether in character animation, visual effects, or motion graphics. Tutorials that deal with this basic idea explicitly in After Effects are rare.

Flowchart tools in After Effects

Tab is the new Shift

By Rich Young | January 13, 2014

Many once ignored the Flowchart Panel in After Effects, since it did not actually herald nodes or offer many operational benefits, but it can be useful if you need an overview of more complicated projects. Though not quite as fun as the keyframe art at Behind Keyframes from Sandervandijk.tv, the Flowchart Panel might be considered artful, as shown by Quba Michalski in MotionGraphs (pictured).

A Point and Shoot Camera For Shooters

matrox recording app videoguys vs4 vs4 recorder

Stuff this in your already full camera bag. You won't be dissappointed.

By Brian Hallett | January 12, 2014

I admit to not being the biggest fan of small point & shoot cameras.  They're small, lack features, and I already have a Canon DSLR and a Blackmagic Cinema Camera.  So why would I even think about picking up a Canon S110?  Then I won one and I found it to be one of the best little cameras one could cram into an already full camera bag.

HP Z1 G2 offers Thunderbolt2 and matte display! (First look article)

matrox recording app videoguys vs4 vs4 recorder

HP has fortunately addressed what I considered to be the two key weaknesses of the first generation Z1 all-in-one Workstation.

By Allan Tépper | January 12, 2014

I am so glad that HP has addressed what I considered to be the two biggest weaknesses of the first generation of the Z1, the company's first all-in-one workstation, which forced the user to use a very glossy display and had absolutely no connection for an external disk array (RAID). HP just announced the second generation of the Z1, and both issues have been addressed, together with performance improvements and other user choices. Let’s take a first look in this very short article and video.

Five iOS-capable, dual-input balanced>USB audio interfaces compared

Mission: Connect two balanced XLR mics to your iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, bypassing the iDevice’s inferior preamp and A>D converter

By Allan Tépper | January 11, 2014

In prior articles, we have established that the best audio quality on iOS devices is achieved when connecting digitally, thus bypassing their inferior preamp and internal A>D converters. We have also discovered that starting with iOS 7, iPhones and iPod Touches can now join the digital party, together with iPads. It’s easy to connect a single (compatible) USB mic to your iDevice, but what about connecting two mics digitally? In this article, I’ll compare devices from ART, Avid, Roland, SoundDevices, and Tascam, between US$79 and US$899, from specs/features to actual recording samples.

A Q and A with Avid about Sphere, ISIS and Interplay

matrox recording app videoguys vs4 vs4 recorder

I admit to not being able to keep these products straight so I thought I'd ask Avid to explain them to me

By Scott Simmons | January 08, 2014

Adobe made a big splash over the last year + with Adobe Anywhere, their “real-time collaboration” platform meant to connect editors without physical limitations. If you have the right hardware then Adobe Premiere Pro CC is ready for Adobe Anywhere. Avid also has their own version of this real-time collaboration idea … in fact Avid had this option available before Adobe had Anywhere. It’s called Interplay Sphere and I don’t know much about it. Since The Editblog did a Q and A with Adobe about Anywhere it’s only fair we do the same with Avid.

RØDE Rec audio app for iOS has come a long way

matrox recording app videoguys vs4 vs4 recorder

Many improvements have been added to the RØDE Rec audio app since the last time we saw it with a different name.

By Allan Tépper | January 08, 2014

RØDE Rec is the new name of an extremely powerful —yet inexpensive— audio app for iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch I have covered previously, in several articles and ebooks back in 2012, by its original name. The renowned Australian microphone manufacturer (RØDE) actually took the core of the original app and invested a year of custom development to improve it. Ahead we’ll cover the improvements, and point out the only missing details that I’d really like them to add.
