Mar. 2, 2020

March is here - spring is on the way! Whew. Lots of news this week. Apple published two white papers, one on the new Mac Pro and the other on the XDR Pro Display. These are detailed, yet understandable, guides to both these new pieces of hardware. One of my articles this week, looks at the new Afterburner graphics card, as detailed by Apple.

In other news, Ritual Music announced a new version of their music licensing platform. Over the last year, they acquired exclusive licensing rights to over 20,000 curated tracks. They are looking for feedback and ideas on what you need.

Coughlin and Associates are running their annual storage survey. This survey is designed to determine the media industry's digital storage needs and expectations for the capture and creation of raw content, editing and post production, distribution of content, digital archiving as well as digital conversion and preservation. The results of this survey will be used to create the 2020 Coughlin Associates report on Digital Storage for Professional Media and Entertainment. The survey deadline is May 15, 2020.

I'm a keyboard shortcut junkie. Anything that helps me get an edit done sooner is a good idea in my book. Over the years, I've collected my favorite keyboard shortcuts for both Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro CC. I first published these a while back, then updated them for more recent versions. Feel free to share these downloadable PDFs with friends. They, ah, make great conversation starters.

In this week's articles, I have something for everyone - Mac, iPad, Final Cut and Premiere. These include a quick technique from Constance B. on how to transfer videos from a Mac to an iPad, how to fly a camera through text to reveal the video beneath, details on the Afterburner card and an illustrated tutorial on how to create favorite effects in Final Cut.

Thinking of tips, there are 18 new tips publishing this week as part of The Inside These are always fun to write because I learn something new during my research. Subscriptions are free - sign up here.

That's it for this week. As always, I love hearing from you. In the meantime, stay in touch and, until next week,   edit well .
