Ceva studii de piata(te) …

Ca tot este simbata si deobicei mergem la piata pentru zarzavaturi (‘Farmers Market’) de data asta am ajuns la alta piata, Avid Marketplace … probabil ca trebuie sa schimb GPS-ul!

Cita vreme co-nationalii de la Corel au venit cu ceva oferte gratis, americanii de la Avid au fost rai cu R mare … asa ca m-am suparat pe ei si m-am inrolat pe frontul rusesc ca sa lupt pentru democratie si libertate … cel putin ce inteleg eu prin ele, nu ce ne invata CNN-ul!

Asfelt am revazut un vechi prient, pe Boris, emigrantul nostru de nadejde’! Acum ceva anisori, chiar am ajutat un roman comunitar (fotograf) cu ceva ‘training’ despre ‘Boris Continuum Complete’ … sau poate era Boris FX … dar atunci in Sony Vegas Pro.

Dar fiind indoctrinat sa cheltuiesc banii de catre agentii de pe Avid Marketplace (vezi detalii mai jos) am zis ca trebuiesc extinderi la arsenal; asa ca o sa am scos din buzunar 5,789$, in loc sa imi iau ceva de mincare si sa ajut un pic pe bietii fermieri!

Media Composer Perpetual License    $1,299.00 
Boris Continuum Complete AVX 9      $1,995.00
Boris RED 5.5                         $995.00
NewBlue TotalFX                     $1,499.00
TOTAL de plata                      $5,788.00

… ieftin ca braga! mai la urma vin niste rinduri cu detalii despre ‘cumparaturi’.

Ca sa tinem povestea scurta si ca tot zice omul … ‘o imagine este cit o mie de cuvinte’, dragi tovarasi si pretini, va prezint ce a iesit:

Plus un pic de ‘presets preview with BCC FX Browser’; doua chestii de observat aici:

1. MC are ‘Autosave on steroids’; a crapat de doua ori dar la repornire este cu totul cum a fost inainte!
2. In ciuda faptului ca sistemul este foarte incarcat, BCC lucreaza foarte rapid, adaptinduse ‘real-time’ la resursele existente … o posibila explicatie (scuze dar acum vorbeste tehnicianul din mine) este ca BCC ruleaza ca un plug-in in felia de memorie alocata deja de MC!

si acum deja clasicul raspuns al Youtube AI relativ la video cu ‘subiecte’ similare:

dar si un exemplu de ce se intimpla in ziua de astazi pe la televiziunea nationala (TVR)


si acum detalii despre ‘cumparaturi’:

Cintari, cintari … dar imaginile unde ‘E’ …

Mai pe romaneste parca ‘E’ este ‘Mi’ dar trecem peste amanunte!

Am gasit niste DVD-uri prin arhive, cu favoritul meu, dupa Hendrix (sa-i fie tarina usoara), Adrian Belew. Si am socotit cum sa pun ZOBurile … pardon … .VOB-uri, intr-un format mai actual.  (@George: Adrian este fostul principal la King Crimson)

Si uite ca tovarasii/co-nationalii de la Corel trimit reclama despre Corel VideoStudio X9 (redenumit dupa ce au cumparat pe cei de la ULead) si venerabilul Pinnacle Studio v19; plus ca ofera si pe ‘Studio Backlot‘ ceva cursuri pe gratis pentru 30 de zile!

Pai nu a fost nevoie decit de o noapte ca postasul sa vina chiar de doua ori …

Training for Pinnacle Studio 19:
101 videos / 10.5 GB (11,356,499,151 bytes) / 10:21:21


Complete Training Avid MC:
63 videos / 12.2 GB (13,160,480,901 bytes) / 10:12:12

Dar MC (v8.4.5 este pe aici) este prea sofisticat pentru un simplu RIP; asa am optat pentru Pinnacle!

… si uite ce imi ofera Youtube ca video similar:

… evident, cred ca mai este de lucru un pic, sau ceva mai mult la Inteligenta Artificiala (AI)!
