The internet is practically overflowing with timelapse videos. Some of them are good, some are not, and some of them are truly mind-blowing. As we know, modern motorized camera movement equipment has really paved the way for all sorts of inventive movement to be included in the timelapse format. In general, if a camera move has been done in a live-action environment, someone has probably done it in a timelapse. Although I could very well be wrong, until today I had never seen someone perform a dolly zoom during a timelapse. Eric Stemen recently put together a video not only showing how the technique looks (mind-blowing), but also how he pulled it off using traditional hyperlapse techniques and a little ingenuity.
Premiere Pro CC 2014 review: New features allow video editors to do more Macworld If you've been caught in an embarrassing situation by the local 6 o'clock news crew, then you'll appreciate that professional video editors often must protect the...

Premiere has become my standard for editing and I've used them all!
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.
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.
When I bought my Sony PMW-F55 from Rule.com I knew it was going to be an amazing camera. I was looking at replacing my Red One MX digital cinema camera and needed a similar style large sensor camera that would compliment my Sony PDW-F800. I needed a digital cinema/broadcast television camera hybrid.
(...) "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."
You wouldn't have to be online for too long these days to spot a photoshop'd image pass through your streams. At this point, it would be hard to deny that Photoshop has completely revolutionized our culture visually.
