After Thanksgiving technology tidbits
I love Thanksgiving – I mean hey, what’s not to like? Too much food, family, friends and deserts makes for a lot of goodies after the holidays. Here’s some of my after Thanksgiving tidbits (They’re not leftovers!) for you to peruse.
Lots of things going on with Premiere Pro and it’s all good. Matrox has just announced and released their 3.1 software version to coincide with our 3.1 release for Premiere Pro. I’m firing up my Axio again in our NY office so I am looking forward to giving this realtime hardware a real test drive over the next couple of months. The 3.1 release also applies to the RT.X2 series as well.
Premiere Pro is getting some good comments and reviews regarding our DVC Pro HD implementation. While that’s terrific, I can’t wait for what we’re cooking up next.
Lightroom 1.3 went live last week and if you haven’t gotten it yet, you should run the updater under the help menu. It provides updated Camera Raw profiles as well as support for some new cameras including the EOS mk3. If you haven’t tried Lightroom yet, give it a try. It’s one of those products, I’ll launch just to fool around with. It’s really that cool.
After Effects is still working towards adding DVC Pro HD + P2 support to sync up with Premiere Pro. My guess is that this update will come along with our Leopard updates in early December.
Came across two websites that might peak your interest:
Josh Fozzard is a wedding/event videographer who has dived into After Effects and has a number of interesting items you might like to look at including his website name: AEproject.com
The next one comes to me via Terry White, who besides being an avid technology buff (Terry’s techblog) also writes for Photoshop User and Layers magazine. Terry mentioned Rod Harlan and Rod’s website, DVconfidential. After taking a quick look at it, I know I’ll be back.
Just like Thanksgiving, there are more dainty tidbits and delicacies to explore, but I’m stuffed for now. More coming soon.
