If you are a Mac user, then you probably are well aware that Apple released OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion this week. By all accounts, it’s an improvement over 10.7 Lion.
If you are a holdout (like I was), then you may still be using OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. I was concerned about losing 32-bit app compatibility, quirks in other 64-bit apps and the death of Spaces (something I use all day, everyday).
Having mulled Mountain Lion over for several weeks, I bit the bullet this week and upgraded from Snow Leopard. Based on most of what I had read, CS6 app stability and speed improves with Mountain Lion. Since that’s the software suite I use more than anything else, I went for it. [Read more…]

The above video comes from a recent webinar that Tiffen put on with Richard Harrington to show off Tiffen Dfx 3. In the video, Harrington covers some color grading techniques in several different editors that use the Dfx 3 plugin and really shows off the capabilities of this solid plugin.
The more I use this plugin, the more I like it. It’s so very comprehensive and powerful for video, and quick for getting stylized looks from Lightroom on the photo side as well.
Digital Anarchy has announced Beauty Box Video 2.0, which is a video plug-in for smoothing and retouching skin in the major NLEs.

Singular Software unveiled PluralEyes 3 back at NAB 2012. If you aren’t familiar with PluralEyes, it is a audio syncing program that took the HDSLR video editing world by storm a couple of years ago. Read my PluralEyes review from 2010.
Some NLEs, like FCP X, offer syncing capabilities in the box; however, it’s not near as full-featured as what you can do with PluralEyes 3. I caught a brief demo of it and the sync speed with tons of clips is remarkable. Additionally, the interface is not near as clunky as the older versions. If you want to give it a try, the free beta for PluralEyes 3 is now open.
Right now, it’s only available for OS X 10.7 and will work with FCP 5/6/7 and FCP X 10.0.4 and Premiere Pro CS5/5.5/6. Media Composer is not supported in this iteration of the beta release.
You can get it on Singular Software’s website.
