As I mentioned earlier, my lead story looks at the new M1 chip from Apple; the first iteration of the transition to Apple silicon that was introduced by Apple last June. There's a lot here for media creators to think about, but the key question is: What do we buy? I answer that, and other questions, here.
Along those same lines, the folks at KitPlus interviewed me on KitPlus TV about the new M1. KitPlus, based in London, is a global online portal for pro video and broadcast news, kit reviews, articles, video resources and marketplace for advertising equipment for sale. The interview is posted to YouTube.
Last week's webinar - Media Compression for Apple Compressor - was an in-depth look at the entire application, including a tour of features like job chaining, HEVC compression and watermarking that you may not have explored. It's posted to our store and Video Training Library.
This Wednesday's webinar is similar: Media Compression with Adobe Media Encoder. Starting with explaining the fundamentals of compression, I cover compression techniques, along with special features that you may not know about. As with all my live webinars, registration is free.
In other articles, I learned that Apple is using new chips to speed video compression, that Apple also updated their Pro Video codecs, as well as Final Cut Pro, last week, and several highlights from last week's webinar. You'll find all of these in the Articles section below.
The weather is turning colder, the holidays are approaching and more of us are getting sick. Please take care of yourself and stay safe. We've come this far, we can last a little longer.
Until next Monday, stay warm, stay safe and stay hopeful. And edit well.
