The new FlowPlayer Designer allows you to design and customize the look and branding of your own video player and then it generates the code to embed it on your web site.


If you publish video clips that are not publicly hosted (as when they are published on YouTube) but reside on your own server or on cloud services like Amazon S3, then you must have a video player to serve your video content on your site or private membership site.


With Flowplayer Designer you can integrate your own company logo, select between nine pre-designed looks, control the colors of the individual elements of the player and set what controls are visible and available to the final viewer.


Free to use.

CinemAloha's insight:

 

When a DSLR is mounted on a jib/crane, it's very difficult to keep the composition or focus.  The current tethered monitors are cumbersome at best and have too many wires that can be a point of failure.  To solve this problem, I've searched high and low for about a year on how to connect ad-hoc wifi to DSLRs for remote viewing and camera control.  I came across RaspberryPi & Arduino boards to see if they had the capability but it was too technical for my expertise plus I lacked the time to learn something new.  

 

Today, I've found a solution to exactly what I was looking for.  It's called the Weye Feye....funky name.  It's creates an ad-hoc network to smart devices and allows you to control compatible DSLRs.  

 

The only area I see for improvement is the app.  For first version, I think they're going to sell like hotcakes.  The creator of this device, XSories ("accessories") has over 17 years experience in the extreme sports arena so being able to quickly focus, adjust aperture, iso, etc should be a quick with tap-hold-slide gestures on the screen should have been a priority in the app.  The app is the heart of the system, being able to detach yourself from having to view a 3" screend and use an iPad or any tablet with a large screen is the entire point.  I'd love to develop a competing device now that I know it's possible.

 

I like that it only has 0.2 seconds of latency.  Attached this to a follow focus, controller, and a servo motor and it will be a game changer for DSLR filmmakers.  There are wireless follow focus system in the market but not at a low price point.  As always dependability is the key.     

 

Any EEE experts out there listening :)

Rhino Battery Holster keeps your batteries close

Rhino Battery Holster keeps your batteries close | CinemAloha | Scoop.it
This accessory keeps your Canon dSLR's juice packs close by so you don't have to stop too long to reload.

 

(Credit: Kyle Hart)

A Washington-based accessory company has just created a Kickstarter project for its latest product, the Rhino Battery Holster. And like the name suggests, this contraption allows you to holster your battery like a gunslinger in an old western.

Capable of holding two Canon 2 LP-E6 juice packs, the battery holster has an integrated belt clip that lets you attach the holster to your belt, camera strap or camera carrier. Alternatively there are brass inserts at the rear of the belt clip that lets you secure the holster to anything using a carabiner.

(Credit: Kyle Hart)

Compared with conventional battery grips which can be heavy and expensive, the Rhino Battery Holster is lighter, accessible and more affordable. While the idea is novel, we can't help but feel that its limited because it is only compatible with Canon's LP-E6 batteries--used by cameras such as the Canon 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 7D, 6D and 60D.

If this accessory piques your fancy, a basic US40 pledge will get you two battery holsters with free shipping in the US, if the project gets funded.

Useful?  Maybe but I prefer wearing cargo pants (or shorts) when shooting to carry accessories.

Apple Plans Release In Late Fall Of OSX Licensed Systems

Apple Plans Release In Late Fall Of OSX Licensed Systems | CinemAloha | Scoop.it

It’s the announcement video professionals have been waiting for – New Mac Pro workstations will be released later this year along with the next generation of OSX dubbed Stallion. In a surprise move Apple also announced that these new workstations will not be made by Apple, but their new OEM OSX License partners HP and Dell.

The first model to be released will be a new HP Z2 All-In-One workstation. New features include two Thunderbolt ports, Apple Fusion drive, NVIDIA Kepler based Quadro K-series GPU and integrated 27” HP Retina Dreamcolor display.

HP will also be releasing a new z900 quad Xeon workstation with four Thunderbolt ports, up to 256GB of RAM and three Nvidia Quadro Kepler cards.

Dell has also announced that they will be releasing a new line of Precision Workstations and Laptops later this year all running OSX Stallion.

The next generation OSX Stallion will be designed with a more open architecture, but also include an integrated licensing scheme that will tie into iTunes and the Apple app store.

Apple Director of OSX Licensing Sidd Finch said “OSX Stallion is optimized for multiple Xeon processors, up to 256GB of RAM and multiple NVIDIA Kepler based Quadro cards. In our tests running FCPX on the Z2 running OSX Stallion you can edit multiple streams of 2K footage in real-time. The Quad Xeon z900 Workstation can handle multiple layers of native 4K footage with ease.”

HP spokesman William Newell said “The combination of OSX Stallion and HP workstations will deliver more horsepower than creative content producers ever dreamed possible. Video editors will be able to run their choice of Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer or Apple FCPX Non-Linear Editing software. All tapping into the incredible hardware, technology and performance designed into these new workstations and OSX Stallion."

CinemAloha's insight:

I've used Magic Bullet Looks (MBL) in FCPX since it came and I can say that it's well worth it.  I also bought it on a promo deal like this one, 50% off.  My discovery of MBL was in the FCP7 days.  I like the interface - very intuitive and easy to learn.  I always like apps that you can learn quickly because time is money.  I don't like long posts to read and don't like to write long posts also. 

 

I haven't used MBL recently because it depends on the current project.  Most of coloring can be done in FCPX and I use only my trackpad or iPad Mini to do so with The Touch by ArcticWhiteness(.com).  Now that .8 came out, the compability is back again but I haven't used it since the last two upgrades so I'm ok with that. 

 

When working on new software, they are going to be bugs - NO MATTER WHAT!  It's the nature of the beast, it's up to you to take the risk.
