GoPro CEO Nick Woodman just went on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco to tease a few interesting things the company is developing behind closed doors. Asked about drones, he said “A drone opens up a world that we’ve never seen before, like from an angel perspective. That truly is the invisible camera.” More precisely, he also added, “Development is on track for the first half of 2016. We have some differentiations that are right in the GoPro alley.” This sounds like we can expect exciting drone news from the maker of the world’s best-selling camera next year, possibly at NAB 2016 time? This will put them squarely into DJI territory with their Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 drones, which also feature a camera similar to GoPro in quality in their standard specifications. Watch the full interview session here: He also added that Hero4 Session sales are slower than they were expecting, but said that compared to anything that their competitors are doing, the camera is still doing remarkably well. Another new GoPro focus will be the software side of things – particularly a cloud based solution that they have been developing for a while now. They want to enable users to share their captured videos more instantly, with the “GoPro servers” that “will let you make 60-second or 2-minute videos without any effort on your part.” That of course doesn’t sound like professional filmmaking, but that’s also not what GoPro are after, and that’s not where they make their real money. via TechCrunchRead more
Adobe is really pushing their Creative Cloud now that CS6 is out since May. Maybe they didn’t get as many subscriptions as they intended to get, maybe this whole cloud thing is just too new and complicated for people to really pick it up. Anyway, they’re now really driving the ad mill and throwing out a deal until the end of August. You’ve got to own any previous Adobe CS app (CS3 or higher) and they give you $29.95/month instead of $49.95/month for the whole first year. Adobe Creative Cloud explained (again): Basically is the whole Creative Suite (CS6 as the real apps!) with some advanced cloud sharing features (like Apple iCloud), but you’re paying on a monthly basis, just as long as you use the Suite, much like an App Store if you will. The cloud version of CS6 will set you back $600 $360 (with August deal) a year while the retail version of the whole bundle (“Master Collection“) is $2599 and the lighter, filmmaking oriented package “Production Premium CS6” is $1799. And since we can expect another next version next year anyway that’s a pretty good deal for a serious suite like that. The downside is that you cannot use the cloud on a month-by-month basis, so you cannot only use it during September while editing and save the money cause you’re out shooting during October. Maybe Adobe wants to take over the disappointed Final Cut Pro people before Final Cut Pro X really takes off (if ever). It’s a fact that you’ve got to put in more braincells to learn CS6 than any Apple product. US: Get started with Adobe Creative Cloud (yearly plan) for $29.95: LINK For Europe: Adobe Creative Cloud (yearly plan) for 36,89€ (instead of 61,49€): LINK Why is it more expensive in Europe? Because we have taxes. Here are 10 free Premiere Pro CS6 Tutorials Andrew Devis to get you started on Premiere CS6:Read more
And it rhymes because it’s true! We have signed up with the Malware police and they’ll be permanently securing the whole website against future attacks. Additionally they’ll be thoroughly scanning the site integrity 4 times a day and if any attempt on us is made they’ll send their swat team in to escort the unfriendly guest out the backdoor and do nasty stuff on him. After we’ve spent a good part of our budget on trying to make the site more secure ourselves (and we haven’t suceeded) I’m glad to announce we can leave this job up to the experts now. The service is provided by sucuri.net, a newly founded, cloud based security company that had me convinced with an outstanding customer service. I trust cinema5D is safe now and I’m glad I can strike out this nerve stretching topic from my todo list for good.Read more
