HEVC H.265 Royalties Are Killing It Even Before It Takes Off?

Is High Efficiency Video Coding, HEVC or H.265 as it is also known the Y2K Bug of the fimmaking revolution? Could Royalties kill it?
planetMitch's insight:

I haven't made the time to investigate this new H.265 discussion, but this post at Cinescopophilia seems to have a good grasp on the excitement as well as the realistic side of the discussion. Royalites not being defined is a real excitement killer at this point for me.

RED Teases Smaller & Faster 512GB/1TB Cards in Firmware 5.1.29, New MiniMags Shipping Late 2013 « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

While they aren’t technically new, RED has quietly taken the wraps off of new capacities for their MiniMags, which were originally designed for the Proxy Module to record DNxHD and ProRes. Even though it was announced at NAB, that module has not been released yet, but RED has decided to take the same kind of cards and use them inside a brand new Side SSD to record RAW. In addition, RED has also increased support for a number of Canon lenses in Beta firmware v5.1.29. Read on for more on the Side SSD and Canon lens support.

Is "Sony Ci" the Cloud-Based Filmmaking Workspace that We've All Been Waiting For? « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

There aren’t many things that I’m absolutely sure about, but the notion that Cloud-based computing and creative collaboration are the future seems almost indisputable at this point. There are a few options already in existence for creative collaboration through the cloud, Adobe’s Creative Cloud being the first one to come to mind. However, in terms of tools that are made with filmmakers in mind, the options are even more limited. However, Sony is looking to change all of that with their new interactive cloud-based creative collaboration platform, simply entitled “Ci”.

Chris Fenwick plans to launch new FCPX podcast "FCPX Grill"

Chris Fenwick plans to launch new FCPX podcast "FCPX Grill" | HDSLR | Scoop.it

If you’ve been following my blog for a few years you may remember back in the summer of 2010 I created a project that I called “Switch to Premiere Pro” or “#X2PPro”. If you check your twitter feed you will see that that hashtag was used in 2010 and 2011. At the time I was very unhappy with  what Apple was doing with Final Cut Pro and its progress. I set out on my own to find a replacement for a tool that I had used for a long time.


The “campaign”, if you will, proved to be quite successful. Many of my professional peers were shocked that I was considering leaving Final Cut Pro, a tool that I had used for over a decade. Even Adobe Systems noticed my blog entries and asked me to be a part of a few events designed to promote Premier Pro.


Not wanting to be a “spilled milk” kind of guy I left one part of the story out of my blog. After six months of following the “Adobe Way” I tired of the application and moved on. The biggest stumbling block that I had was the lack of what is commonly called Smart Renders. Smart Renders allow you to begin rendering a timeline and then abort that render midway while keeping what has been rendered thus far. Since Adobe’s biggest selling point was a lack of rendering due to the power of the Mercury Playback Engine, I guess it took a while for the good people at Adobe to decide that this was an important feature. What this resulted in was often times getting to the end of a project but requiring one long massive render in order to deliver. This made it very difficult to calculate how long it would take to send a file to a client.

planetMitch's insight:

By buddy Chris Fenwick is launching a new podcast all about FCPX! The episodes aren't on iTunes just yet, but this will be something to listen to!
