Adobe Creative Suite 3 – World Exclusive Preview!

Adobe Creative Suite 3 world exclusive preview by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

Those of you who read my blog will know that at the end of January, I spent half a day at an exclusive press event (and a further half day at a follow up event a couple of weeks ago). Since both events were under Non Disclosure Agreement, I was unable to say anything more until now…when I can exclusively reveal that they were previews of Adobe’s Creative Suite 3, which will be formerly announced today.

Just One Announcement

MC rebbe The Rapping Rabbi writes about Red One digital cinema camera in The TechnofileEvery April, NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) takes place in Las Vegas (where else). Usually this is the place where major manufacturers make major announcements about major new products, but this year, such announcements were pretty thin on the ground.

JVC announced a pair of Pro HDV cameras, with interchangeable lenses, which look interesting, if a little (i.e. very) overpriced, Panasonic released…a DV camera (huh?), Canon released…a lens (big wow) and Sony released…nothing.

As it turns out, Sony might, unintentionally, have made the best move of all, because no matter what was announced, it would inevitably have been completely overshadowed by ‘Red’. Continue reading “Just One Announcement”

Final Draft 7 International Edition

Final Draft 7 reviewed by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi in The TechnofileBeing Jewish I like to find things to complain about, but for once I’m struggling…in fact, every time I think I’ve spotted something that Final Draft 7 could or should do, I read a little further through the manual and discover that it can and does…which probably explains why it’s the world’s best selling script/play writing/formatting software… Continue reading “Final Draft 7 International Edition”

The Equipment Show

Last weekend The British Society of Cinematographers held their annual ‘Equipment Show’ at Elstree Film and Television Studios’ Studio One…or as it has been renamed, ‘The George Lucas Stage’. Highlights included the new HD cameras from Arri and Panavision, whose differing design philosophies try to achieve the same end result of film quality images on digital video tape.

MC Rebbe features the Panavision Genesis in The Technofile alongside the Arriflex D20The Sony camera…or as it has been renamed…The Panavision Genesis…has a Sony image sensor, Sony circuitry and an integrated Sony HD ‘tape deck’. It is designed to take the full range of Panavision Primo lenses and because it features a single ‘full frame’ sensor, there is no magnification factor, which means that these lenses offer exactly the same focal length and depth of field as if used with a Panavision 35mm film camera. Continue reading “The Equipment Show”

The Future Is Digital…

MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi.
