This article almost willfully ignores Apple's own positioning statements for this crop of machines. They highligh four market segments: home office, gaming, music production, and digital signage and art. Which of those covers video editing? NONE!
I'm sure that subsequent models will address, and when they do, Apple will shout that from the rooftops. But today, it's Digital Signage-level video ability. It's home office-level video capability. It's music production-level video capability. It's "Do you want to play a funny game?"-level video capability.
NFS: please be a bit more critical in your editorial viewpoint!
Your review of Tokina Vista Prime lenses is incomplete--no "what we like"/"what we don't like". Perhaps some text was dropped when translating article to website?
Cheers to your copy-edit department, who let the best typo make it out to the web. You said "As with the Signature Primes, the Signature Zooms do come with a cost and may be a renal item for most."
Meaning that if you want them, you'll need to sell a kidney or two. LOL!
Colin Levy has also done amazing work with the Blender team (https://www.blender.org). Thought somebody should mention that.
The reason AVID users were disproportionately affected is because AVID's Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) required users to disable a key security feature of OSX. Which OSX permits. However, the Chrome update caused OSX to detect a tripwire in the user-compromised system, which caused OSX to shut things down, hence the freeze/reboot loop.
If AVID had less intrusive DRM, then Chrome's update would not have caused such an allergic reaction by the OS.
Great article! So good to see collaboration bubble to the top of the list. I see the same thing at UNCSA's film school: collaboration skills and great collaborators make for great films and great experiences. Too many are too bought into the idea that a single genius can will their film into existence as long as they have the right equipment. So wrong on so many levels. Keep up the good work!
