By David Hague Rather than adding any drastically radical major new enhancements to version 6.5, version 7 instead provides improvements to existing functionality taking advantage of the newer processors letting you work in real time in not only an editing workflow, but also transcoding between 4K, HD and SD resolutions including aspect ratio changes and frame rates.

Focus: Post/Production Sorenson Squeeze 9 A Great Product Just Gets Better (and Easier!)
By David Hague For as long as I have been shooting and editing video, there has been a version of Sorenson Squeeze available. Quite simply, Squeeze has always been the premiere transcoding utility used by professionals. It is simple to use, effective, fast and covers almost every known codec and format type available. Squeeze 9 is the latest version of this venerable product, and while certainly not an inexpensive package, with pricing ranging from USD$799 to an eye watering $1999 for the server version, if you are a professional in the video game, it is an almost indispensable item to have in your toolbox. ...Read More »

Focus: Broadcast Using Prodrenalin To Save Your Video! Remove fisheye, stabilize, fix noise effects and other distortions
By David Hague If you are the proud owner of a GoPro (or similar such as the Sony Action Cam or the Kaiser Baas Sports Cam) you'll be all too familiar with a few problems. Not the least of these is the sheer amount of camera shake followed by distorted footage due to the 'rolling shutter' effect of these cameras. Also in the equation is fish eye distortion, and who hasn't missed that the camera wasn't exactly level when shooting? Or you need to flip video 180 degrees as the camera could only be mounted upside down. This is where ProDad Prodrenalin comes in. ...Read More »
Focus: Audio Production The RØDE Podcaster Microphone The magic bits inside the mic can do this better than the majority of on-board computer sound boards
By David Hague An often overlooked aspect of video is the voice over dialogue. Of course this needs a good mic... While there are many, many 'broadcast' mics available to perform this, for many hobbyists and professionals not creating actual broadcast video, these are overkill and let's face it, probably too expensive. This is where the RØDE Podcaster Mic comes into its own. ...Read More »

Focus: Post/Production Bluff Titler With this you could re-create almost anything you have seen as opening and closing credits for TV
By David Hague Creating titles is something of an art and why there is a separate team usually making them. If you look at the credits of a TV show or film, you'll quite often see a completely different company credited for titles. Yes, there are businesses that JUST make titles and opening/closing sequences. Most video editing packages can do titles do some degree or other. Some are exceptionally good, and some are nauseatingly bad. Thankfully Bluff Titler exists to fill in the gaps. ...Read More »
