Glad to participate in as much Premiere bashing as possible; it deserves it. But I still LOATHE Final Cut pro, especially its awful color grading (though not as awful as it was a few months ago)--and despise the "maybe we'll render, maybe we won't--we'll decide" background render feature. Much as I'm disappointed in Premiere, I'll go back to 3/4" tape-to-tape editing before I suffer through FCP one more time.
I still never wind up using automatic motion tracking--even though I could use it every day, I just can't depend on it. It always lets me down. I wind up adjusting each mask manually, which adds hours to my work. Premiere doesn't just need to create new toys--it needs to make the toys it already has work.
PS Faulkner didn't say "kill your darlings".
"Why Good Editing is Like Good Sex" -- because we all are better off with a little trim?
Not really, because that's an example where someone of limited means needs a low light camera. In a way, it would have made more sense for a gh5 sensor to come without IBIS for big budget crews needing b cams on car mounts--and put IBIS in the gh5s for indie filmmakers and event videographers who need both a great low light camera and IBIS. Remember also, that since both flavors of gh5 have woeful AF the camera op has to be hands on the entire time, often negating the external rig option.
But can't you just turn off the ibis on the gh5 already?
