48 reasons why GarageBand is kryptonite for video production

48 reasons why GarageBand is kryptonite for video production

By Allan Tépper | February 17, 2015

The market is full of capable digital audio editing applications. I am familiar with many of them and have covered several. Many are capable of recording —and all are capable of editing and delivering — a final product of 44.1 or 48 kHz (or more) with a single glaring exception: GarageBand from Apple.

Ahead we’ll review what this all means, including what audio sampling rate is, and best practices for a producing a music video.

This new feature was a long time coming

By Scott Simmons | February 17, 2015

This Quicktip is a version specific Quicktip and our first for Avid Media Composer. It’s a small change but a big thing for editors that was added in the recent version 8 update: The ability to mute clips in the timeline. And that's not only mute audio: it’s mute as in disable the clip so it stays in the timeline but isn’t visible in the playback or output.

Accelerated File Uploads for Production & Post

Using UDP-based transfer protocols to speed file delivery.

By Chris Potter | February 15, 2015

As production and post workflows become increasingly distributed, the ability to send large source files quickly and reliably is becoming more important.

Unfortunately, upload speeds can be a huge bottleneck for people that want to move source files from one place to another over the Internet. Upload speeds aren’t increasing nearly as fast as file sizes. What may possible with HD source files is not possible when you move to a 4K workflow.

Turn off a few settings for a much cleaner look

By Scott Simmons | February 12, 2015
