April 23, 2018

It's been a week since NAB and already it seems to be receding into the distant past. Strange how that happens. I have lots of new stuff for you this week - including five articles on new features in both Apple and Adobe software.

First, thought, Rollo Wenlock and the folks at Wipster want me to let you know that they have totally re-written their video review and collaboration tool. The new version now includes publishing and analytics. Learn more here: wipster.io/blog/announcing-new-workflow-publishing-mam-analytics-tools.

Pomfort has released version 4 of LiveGrade. This latest version introduces an innovative and automated way of logging and organizing camera metadata. Users can now capture and monitor live camera metadata coming from one or multiple cameras. All camera metadata combined with the look information can be organized in the new Shot Library, and exported as Shot Reports. Learn more here: pomfort.com/videos/livegrade-pro-v4-introduction

While I'm talking about new things, Tom Coughlin is looking for a couple of DITs to speak at his upcoming Creative Storage Conference. This group is composed of storage developers and manufacturers. If you'd like to give a piece of your mind to the people who create the storage we use, this is a great opportunity. Send me an email and I'll forward it to Tom.

Webinars are restarting this week with a look at the new features in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Next week, we'll look at the new Caption features in Final Cut Pro. Registration is FREE - but please sign up here.

The Digital Production Buzz is still picking up the pieces left over from NAB. Last week's show talked with several vendors that we weren't able to fit into our live coverage. Also, Jeff Stansfield has some excellent thoughts on key trends that continued to gain, or lose, steam at this year's show. Here's the link: thebuzzshow.libsyn.com/

Oops. I discovered this morning that we published a bad link to Chris Bailey's interview, about FileCatalyst, Saturday's Buzz newsletter. Here's the correct link. I'm sorry for the error.

In my new articles, I have detailed looks at the new captions in Final Cut Pro X, the new Color Match, Auto-Duck and Timecode pane in Premiere and a fascinating website that specializes in text searches of audio files: AudioBurst. All links are below.

I hope to see you at this week's webinar. In the meantime, enjoy your week and edit well.
