Filmed at NAB 2011, this documentary film "seeks to find out what unites us as independent filmmakers who use the latest breed of relatively affordable digital tools." Watch the 'DSLRebrity' studded trailer after the break.
You can't beat a good Hitler spoof when you want to parody some new situation, and the bunker rant scene from 'Downfall' is a particular YouTube favourite. Put together Hitler with FCPX and you've got an explosive situation. And when he calms down and considers the benefits, even the führer can see the awesome rendering possibilities. We particularly liked the bit about clip-collision.
Not only does Rick Young take a good look at the camera, he also hits Red's Ted Schilowitz with a few questions that we all have about Scarlet. We are going to have to hide our credit cards in a few months!
The new Sony cameras put some of the other cool products on the booth into the shade. Yes, Sony had some new toys for us editors too. Video and info after the break.
Two great interviews by Rick Young of MacVideo filmed at the recent SuperMeet in Las Vegas. Steve Martin and Ned Soltz talk about the new Final Cut Pro, FCPX.
A demo video that has everything, Vegas, women and Vincent Laforet shooting in a helicopter. Does the $3,000+ Sony F3 S-Log upgrade really make a difference? BTS video in the read more.
Is it possible to give an award to a product that hasn't been released yet? Of course as Videomaker have given the NAB 2011 award to Apple's Final Cut Pro X.
Walter knows his stuff, he grades using Color on a regular basis and has produced a top selling Color instructional DVD. He managed to squeeze some demo time at NAB to take a look at Baselight and the FCP plugin.
Two reasons for posting this video. The first is the fact that PluralEyes is a pretty amazing piece of software for synching clips and audio together. The second, well take a look after the break.
Those FCPX Presentations filmed from iPhones, iPads, Canons, Nikons, and Panasonics are starting to spring up across the net, like Pink Floyd bootlegs. Some have been filmed from bags, other like Emmanuel Pampuri's managed to get both presentation party and screen in shot, and with a somewhat frenzied sting on the front! Well done Manu for posting so soon. Part 2 after the break.
It will be the last because from tonight when the 'new' FCP is demoed at the SuperMeet, FCP7 will named the 'old' Final Cut Pro. Tonight will be a watershed...
We were waiting here yesterday for a large press release from AJA detailing a whole new line of products and it didn't really happen. What is the tribble trouble with AJA?
A smart move by Matrox. Not only will new MXO boxes have built in Thunderbolt by July, they are also releasing an adapter for those of us who have a unit already.
Wow! Showering us with a veritable confetti of new products at NAB, Blackmagic Design have dipped into their top hat of tricks 14 times (at the latest count) this Monday. Now there's far too much even for us news-and-product-hungry fiends at fcp.co towers, so we're going to give you a brief round up of the six products that most interest FCP users.
The war between portable LCD recorders broke out a few weeks ago. Cinedeck have joined the fight with their new model which offers Avid DNxHD, CineForm and Apple ProRes recording as well as 3D options. Find out all the tech spec for EXTREME after the break and where you can find it at NAB.
We saw this yesterday and thought it was a bit cheeky. Then again they got booted off the Supermeet stage by Apple so this is a good return to Cupertino's serve.
A nice update. Adobe even admit to borrowing a few features from other NLE's. Get a tour of the new features of Premiere and the other apps with a 43 minute demo video after the break.
Sony are outdoing themselves at NAB with new cameras at the moment, and at fcp.co towers we definitely want one of these beauties. The F65, even the name sounds like a combat jet, looks so cool, take a peak at some of those specs - 120fps, 4K resolution and a rotary shutter to prevent that rolling shutter problem, this is one very nice piece of kit. No retail price available as of yet, but our guess is you'd probably have to re-mortgage to be able to buy one and all the lenses that go along with it. Still we can dream.
We're big fans of the Zacuto rigs, but that goes hand in hand with being 5D addicts. Jens from Zacuto talks about the Z-EVF at NAB. Nice drop test. Apparently they've done drop tests from up to twelve feet high, so fairly robust as well.
Sony are going full tilt into 3D, with the HXR-NX3D1. All the tech stuff after the break but what's of particular interest to us is that support is scheduled to enable conversion of MVC footage recorded with the HXR-NX3D1 to CineForm codec using the popular CineForm Neo3D/NeoHD as a Codec Plug-In for 3D editing. Looks like GoPro made a good decision in buying CineForm.
Hot news indeed. This plugin gives editors direct access to Baselight functionality within Final Cut Pro. You can render the Baselight settings within Final Cut or export them as an XML list to load into a Baselight system. Could this just last 4 days before the new FCP is announced?
Editshare ups the ante as it introduces 'Energy', its new high-performance mid-range shared storage solution at NAB 2011. The beauty of ‘Energy’ is that it offers advanced project sharing with sequence and bin locking for Avid, Apple FCP, and Lightworks. If you want more than one FCP editor working on a project then this might be the answer.
It started with a tweet from @editorslounge and by the end of the day had grown into the biggest piece of Final Cut Pro news since Larry Jordan dropped his jaw.
Today Digieffects announced that they now support Apple's FxPlug technology across their range of plugins. This should bring speed gains in Final Cut Pro by utilising the GPU instead of the CPU.
EVS has had a bit of a love hate relationship with FCP. Why would you want to edit on Final Cut Pro when you could use IPEdit? Well here is one reason, the launch of IPEdit.3D at NAB 2011.
It's a forum question that keeps coming up again and again:- "How can I make my video look like film?" Hopefully this post might provide part of the answer. CineGrain have released a huge (and I mean huge) library of quicktime movie film effects on disk.
Wow! Two great bits of FCP news in two days. The new MacBook Pros that have been released today feature 'Thunderbolt' Apples branding of Light Peak technology from Intel.
Crikey is it that time of year again? It only seems a few months ago that we were standing amongst friends and peers at the last Supermeet in Vegas. Ticket time has come around again and the early bird tickets for this years event have just gone on sale today.
