NAB 2017

Another NAB come and gone.

This year was special in celebrating the 20th Aniversary of the MMB, I've got 18 straight years in. Special thanks to Red Giant for their incredible gift of everything they have to everyone ! Doesnt get better than that.

Meanwhile, we thankfully saw modest number of new things and imprivements in gear. There is a pure glut of cine glass now. Your camera is still not obsolete from last year !

Interesting notes : No RED booth this year ! I guess why should they. No AutoDesk Smoke / Flame booth. Always known for being obnoxiously loud, no one with a booth nearby complained. No FCP X announcements. Guess the update will just show up one day soon as update.

The Ugly : Premiere Pro has not been getting good press. Stability, deleting media from drives, GH5 10bit non-support... Ya they released this one a little early. Would of been better to wait a month and fixed it all. 

Other Adobe video apps had good release updates like AE an AME which continue to be tools many rely on to get work done and money made.


Anyway its been good not doing the constant several times a week postings I used to do. The break is good. I do have some new product review things in the works, just waiting for UPS to get things here ! 

I'm even working on a couple of art videos as a change up. Production work is good, post has been light. Not so bad to catch a break for a bit but things are getting busy again which is good. 

New truck too. Thats going to be an interesting review !

Thats it. Back to work for  now.
