Holler if you saw that header image, thought "wait, that's Dev's cousin from Master of None!", looked him up, and sure enough found out he's legit a Frame.io engineer. Hah!
Has anybody figured out how their "accelerated uploading" works? I'm a web dev and the hand-waving around that is a little alarming. They can't accelerate your uploads beyond your ISP's set upload speed, so they're either talking about:
1. Client-side compression of data before uploading (in which case I'd like to see real benchmarks, since client-side compression is very slow, and only relevant to media files that aren't already efficiently compressed)
2. Faster processing of uploads on their servers compared to other video services (in which case "accelerated uploads" is a misnomer and it should be more like "accelerated importing")
Anyway, a really slick platform, but they've hammered that marketing point a few times and it smells a whole lot like snake oil. Would like to see details and replicable benchmarks.
Dunno why you're being downvoted. I got the joke.
“In LOTR, they're restrained -- Jackson gives you less so you want more in the end.”
Only compared to The Throbbits could LOTR be considered “restrained”.
And since all it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing: here, Lorenzo, have an upvote.
I'll never understand comment ranking here on NFS. Lorenzo's perfectly benign comments has a -5 right now. My gracious read is that people just stab blindly at their screen, and Lorenzo is our newest victim of statistical anomaly; my less gracious read is that at least five of you are turds.
