[permalink] 09.04.2015

Adobe Premiere Pro CC Q1 2015 Creative Cloud update video Adobe announced a new wave of major updates for video applications coming soon to Creative Cloud. New versions of the video tools and services, including some brand new apps, will be presented next week at the NAB tradeshow. Editors using Premiere Pro CC have a lot to look forward to in the next release of Premiere Pro CC, starting with the all-new Color workspace and Lumetri Color panel providing powerful, yet easy-to-use, color tools inside Premiere Pro CC. Further extending their creative color workflows, Premiere Pro CC users will be able to apply Looks captured in the real world with Project Candy to add emotional impact and visual appeal to videos. Looks and graphics elements will be easily accessed in the application via Creative Cloud Libraries. It will also be much easier to deliver polished interview content by smoothing out jump cuts in talking head shots with Morph Cut. Improved integration between Adobe Premiere Clip and Premiere Pro CC will offer a seamless transition from the mobile editing experience to the power of a professional desktop NLE. Other features coming in the next release include more streamlined audio workflows, caption burn-in, improved Mercury Transmit performance for external monitoring with third-party I/O hardware, support for Windows touch devices, new editing refinements, and more file format support (more). The next release of After Effects CC will instantly feel faster for users. Uninterrupted Preview allows users to explore design ideas, adjust properties, and even resize panels without stopping playback. Simplified Previews offers intuitive default behaviors to help new users get up and running faster while allowing experienced After Effects artists to customize their preview options to fit their preferred workflow. Face Tracker is a new feature that makes it easy to map facial movements with exceptional accuracy, managing the level of detail you track. Users can use simple mask tracking for fast tracking (for example to blur out someone's features) or use more detailed point or measurement tracking to apply precise effects, or export tracking data to Adobe Character Animator. Other enhancements in the new release include a more adaptable user interface and support for using touch controls to navigate between panels within the app. [source]

Latest version of FOR-A's 4K variable frame rate camera to premiere at NAB
[permalink] 24.03.2015

FOR-A FT-ONE-S VFR 4K camera photo During the NAB 2015 Show next month, one highlight of FOR-A's booth (C5117) will be the newest version of its 4K variable frame rate camera, the FT-ONE-S. Allowing for greater mobility, the camera is smaller and lighter than previous versions of the camera. The FT-ONE-S made its world debut at last November's Inter BEE Show in Japan, and will be shown for the first time in America at NAB, which runs April 13-16 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The FT-ONE-S allows users to separate the camera head from the body, enabling unprecedented shooting positions and angles for sports production and other live events. The camera links operators optically and via an intercom system, so that users can shoot from the field with up to one km distance between the unit and base station. Featuring a Super 35mm sensor and enhanced resistance to dust and water, the new model also includes the ability to color correct video output live using its 12-axis system, which is particularly useful for on-site color-matching between scenes, or when ensuring color consistency with video shot from other cameras. Previous versions of the camera - the original award-winning FT-ONE, as well as the FT-ONE-OPT, which also features optical cable to allow shooting in the field with ease - will also be on display in FOR-A's booth at the NAB Show. Both versions feature the ability to record 4K video at up to 900 fps. [source]
