Reducing the start-up time for all cameras, and brining XAVC-S recording to the a6000, the download links should become available shortly.
DaVinci Resolve has been renown for its color grading capabilities for while, and they made me one happy freeloader when they started offering a pared-down version of their software at no cost. But, one major thing DaVinci lacked was the total control of a non-lineal editor. Now, with the upcoming release of DaVinci Resolve 12, you get the best of both worlds.
Lightroom CC was announced just over a month ago, and Adobe is already offering a sneak peek of a yet-to-be-released feature that could become a landscape photographer’s best friend.
Adobe Evangelist Terry White walks viewers through the new dehaze slider, showing just how incredibly effective it is, but also how other photographers can use it for a dramatic effect.
Time to get out all the first-person footage you captured with your GoPro, but never touched, as Microsoft finally released its Hyperlapse technology.
Capable of turning standard lengthy videos into smooth and stabilized time lapses, you can expect to see a significant bump in time lapse videos in the near future.
The software is available in one form or another to Windows, Windows Azure, Windows Mobile and Android users.
Microsoft seems thrilled about the release; just don’t confuse it with Instagram’s Hyperlapse app.
One of the celebrated improvements in Lightroom CC is the faster performance, said to be up to ten times faster, thanks to the software’s ability to leverage the graphic processor unit (GPU).
A few days after the official release, however, an Adobe engineer shared additional information regarding GPU acceleration and turns out it might not be all that great. Not right now, at least, and not for everybody.
At the moment GPU acceleration is only available in the Develop module, and even then not all editing controls enjoy it.
Additionally, while GPU implementation offers no advantage for some functions, certain others will actually take longer with the acceleration enabled.
This information also applies to Camera Raw 9.0 for Photoshop/Bridge CC.
If you’ve been looking for an alternative to Bridge, On1 is offering up their Perfect Browse software free of charge. Just head over to their website, plug in your name and email, and the download should begin automatically. You’ll then be directed to another page where you can copy your license number (they’ll send it in an email, too). [Read more…]
While its HERO cameras currently offer 4K video recording and dominate the action camera market, the hardware company is unable to offer the software necessary to get the most out of its products.
This is where Kolor, a French software company and GoPro’s latest purchase, comes into play. Kolor’s software enables users to create 360° content including panoramas, virtual tours and videos.
Up until now spherical content was mostly created by professionals, and the purchase of Kolor has them worried that the company will now focus on creating 360° software for the masses rather than cutting-edge pro-level software solutions.
Will this acquisition lead to the release of a GoPro virtual reality camera?
As expected, the new Lightroom was just announced and it comes in both CC and 6 versions.
The details mentioned in the premature post we shared earlier today turned out to be spot on, and Lightroom CC will be available as part of the Creative Cloud Photography plan while Lightroom 6 will be available as a standalone item to be downloaded or on DVD.
New Lightroom CC features and videos after the jump.
Avid announced yesterday that it will release a free version of the non-linear film and video editing software that was used to edit Avatar, Iron Man, Die Another Day, The Avengers, The Hunger Games and plenty of other blockbusters.
Media Composer is Avid’s flagship product and the company says it was used to edit every 2015 Oscar nominee for Best Picture and best Film Editing, as well as produce 99% of all network broadcast prime time television in North America.
This move is intended to offer aspiring video professionals, video enthusiasts and students an introduction to the paid version, and as such it will include several limitations.
The limited version, called Media Composer | First, will still allow you to work on a project from start to finish and will be released “later this year”.
The team a Magic Lantern has done wonders for the filmmakers industry (and arguably for Canon as well). They made RAW shooting on DSLRs available, implemented a scripting language, and even improved the exposure and dynamic range of the Canon EOS line.
But announcing that the ML team managed to run a 3.19 Linux Kernel on several EOS cameras has the potential to make a huge difference in how apps are developed for cameras. Apps for cameras? yes. This may become a reality.
