With the switch to the new editing software, I wanted to make a short video myself to get some practice. I kept it simple, so this is what I would call a basic edit. First impressions? It'll take some getting used to. Importing was strange, and a couple of nit-picky navigational things we'll have to get used to, but I think ultimately it provides more opportunity to express yourself and sculpt your vision. If you have any concerns about what to expect, fire off in the comments below.
So Sony comes along and releases an updated version of its magnetic tape data cartridge, that holds....are you ready for this....keep in mind this is a physical piece of magnetic tape....185 Terabytes!!! More specifically 148GB per square inch. That's insane.
Tape works by coating plastic film with magnetic coating, where bytes of data are stored in the coating. There were limitations with how many bytes could be stored, which is why you'll typically hear the term 8 or 16 bit recording, most commonly associated with audio files, or music. Now, Sony has engineers a super high density crystal polymer that can be layered within the same amount of physical space, to store bytes in. Basically, instead of one row of 8, you have multiple rows of millions. Pretty cool stuff
Hi everybody. I was looking to update some things on the website (hope you like the new look) and I wanted to add this section to add some new elements. A lot of what we do is rooted in our daily culture and since I love researching or finding out about new tools, trades, tips, films, technology, the "industry" and more, I thought I would use this space to share with you fine folks my findings. Right now this is in experiment mode, so lets see if I can keep up with it. I'll do my best to update as often as I can which is a challenge for those that know my schedule. Please feel free to add to the discussion if you're so inclined. The goal is to share with you film/video related content. Diehards only? Time will tell.
