Seems the United states in behind on protecting IP rights and I worry whether we will pay more for movies now that production companies not only have to spend so much money on protecting their systems but there is added cost if they now have to pay out ransom money to hijackers.

Got an older version of Media Composer, Symphony, or NewsCutter—even as far back as version 3? Or maybe you’ve got a more recent version of Media Composer, but let your Annual Upgrade and Support Plan expire? Then we’ve got some fantastic news for you!
I have always been interested as to what makes Media Composer a top of the line editing system. I don’t believe there is an answer as to why one NLE is better than another for all NLE can do what another can but just in a different way.

Avid is conducting a vote on what features to work on next. Below is my vote for future features in which the first seven seem very exciting to have enhanced.
- Enhanced Visual Effects Model – Expand support for third parties (such as AfterEffects, Baselight, Nuke)

As a video professional, you probably work out of your camera bag and take it as your one grip bag on the job. What if you have you back turned and someone takes that bag with possibly with your camera, lens or SD cards full of material. Now there is a new device that will let you track that bag as it moves away so you can guild the police to the culprit.
For about $30 per unit, you can track items on the cell phone. Yes, it depends on there being a cell phone user who also has TrackR running on their phone too, but if it’s a crowded event you might get more information fast. If you get within a hundred feet of the culprit you can just ask them to hand it over.
By my mentor in Avid editing; the great Kevin P McAuliffe.
“And as for putting things on your reel, they can be an utter disaster. I’ve seen editors put together a montage of all the things they’ve worked on, which shows me they can edit a montage, but nothing else. For me, send me a link to your YouTube page (or Vimeo) that gives me clear examples of things you’ve worked on. “

While doing some research clearing sync rights I came across this trivial fact that people may not well know about. We all heard on the news you could not sing Happy Birthday in the restaurant, however; that has all changed as of 2015 and the song is now in public domain.
“Among the songs in the company’s library are “Winter Wonderland” and formerly “Happy Birthday to You” until the copyright of the song was invalidated in 2015 and put in the public domain the next year.”
I found this video about composition and I think it has been very well done and for those who have never heard about Gestalt Theory, this is what it teaches.

After the death of yet another printer used by VTLP I learned some things that might be of help to others using CIS inks. I received an “end of the life printer head error” that went away and shortly later got an “end of life ink pad” error. The printer just cleaned the heads so much it filled the ink pads inside the printer that catch extra ink.
It would seem to me that I could replace the ink pads as they only cost twenty dollars, however; it was reaching the “end of the print head” so spending any more money and time would be foolish.
Here is the takeaway of what I learned, the printer repair shop said if you use CIS inks they are runnier and you create a lot more drainage from head cleanings. This, of course, ends your print head life faster. Since buying brand ink would be more expensive, I would still use CIS inks but follow these recommendations: Continue reading
