Adobe Doubles Down on Creative Cloud, Adopts Subscription-Only Model

Adobe Doubles Down on Creative Cloud, Adopts Subscription-Only Model | VideoPro | Scoop.it
Sam Seegars's insight:

I've been using the creative cloud Adobe suite for about three weeks and I'm impressed with the ease and function of all the tools. It's really no different than having the software installed on your machine the traditional way. After the trial, I will be subscribing and leaving all other editing software behind. On top of that, I've been converted to a Premiere fan. It had been since Premiere 1.0 that I've paid any attention to it as an editor. I didn't care for it back then. I was a Media100 fan back at the beginning of non-linear editing time. Now, I find other editing platforms, yes, even FCP, to be less efficient, intuitive and lacking a user friendly interface like Premiere. So, Adobe wins hands down for the comprehensive creative tool set. If you haven't tried it, the free trial is a must. Adobe has a good chance of winning you over and winning the pro editing platform battle once and for all.

Oggy Traeman's curator insight, July 15, 2013 6:32 AM
Adobe closed the door on the Creative Suite at its Adobe MAX conference this morning, announcing that it's moving to an all-subscription model and dropping the existing branding of its Creative Suite software products. Starting in June, new versions of Adobe's CS software will be available only online, and only as part of a Creative Cloud subscription.  That's right — say goodbye to After Effects CS6 and say hello to After Effects CC.

YouTube to show off low-bandwidth 4K streaming at CES

YouTube to show off low-bandwidth 4K streaming at CES | VideoPro | Scoop.it

With Netflix having announced plans for 4K streaming in 2014, it was only a matter of time before YouTube responded.

And, sure enough, YouTube is reportedly planning to demo its own improved, low-bandwidth 4K streaming technology at tech trade show CES next week, according to GigaOM.

 

YouTube won't be using the same H.265 video codec that's at the heart ofNetflix's 4K streaming plan – instead, it'll use parent company Google's royalty-free VP9 codec to blast Ultra HD video down your internet pipes.

How long will your files last? How about 1000 years? by Phil Rhodes

How long will your files last? How about 1000 years? by Phil Rhodes | VideoPro | Scoop.it

Posted by Phil Rhodes on May 26, 2013 • 

 

(...) "Although it isn't intuitively true, recordable DVDs are, when you think about it, a photographic medium. This is illustrated nowhere better than in a situation I encountered a few years ago which, if you'll forgive the reminiscence, makes the light-sensitive nature of optical disc storage pretty obvious. In fact, you can try it yourself: leave a DVD-R disc on a windowsill for about a year, partially covered in a sheet of paper, and witness the fact that the part of the disc that isn't obscured ends up looking silver, like an industrially pressed disc. Entertaining a thought though this might be for proponents of extremely long exposure photography, it doesn't help much when your DVDs are likely to become unreadable if you leave them in a place that's too bright, or too warm, or if you happen to walk past the cupboard and sneeze.

 

With file-based recording systems now de rigueur, approaches to backing things up are in notoriously short supply. LTO tape systems, as a complex electro-mechanical arrangement, remain expensive, and almost everyone I consulted in the preparation of this article had experienced problems with the reliability of recordable DVDs and other optical media."

Compact and powerful, the new Lowel GL-1 Power LED set to become the must-have lighting tool for on-location shoots


Hauppauge, NY – April 5, 2013 – The Tiffen Company®, a leading manufacturer of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture and broadcast markets, has begun shipping the new compact, battery-powered Lowel GL-1 Power LED Light through the Lowel Domestic and International Dealer Network. 

“The Lowel GL-1 Power LED represents a new level of quality and control that can be achieved with lighting. The portable form factor keeps much better pace with any on-location shoot while the purpose-built options lets you create an atmosphere in a matter of moments with exact precision. And because the light is a ‘what you see is what you get,’ the results are always outstanding,"comments Steve Tiffen, President and CEO, The Tiffen Company. "No other light delivers this type of power, flexibility and speed. We expect the Lowel GL-1 Power LED Light to become the go-to lighting for image-makers everywhere.”

Training Your Eye - Lighting for Cinematographers. By Shane Hurlbut, ASC (6 Videos)

Training Your Eye - Lighting for Cinematographers. By Shane Hurlbut, ASC (6 Videos) | VideoPro | Scoop.it

Posted by Shane Hurlbut, ASC on April 3, 2013 • 

 

"Many of you have heard me talk about how I light to eye by either looking at the back LCD screen or a  lighting monitor like an HP DreamColor. Lighting to eye is something that is based on experience and what you like esthetically. I trained my eye through the use of exposing film, not an LCD screen or a monitor, but a photo-chemical process and by the use of a light meter. Many say that the light meter is dead with digital. I disagree. It is the only tool that you have in your box that can measure what you love. It can tell you how you lit a specific scene in case you have to go back and pick something up later in your schedule. You will need that tool to measure footcandles and f-stops to guide you to make the match perfect."
