The "bin-locking" feature in Premiere had me really excited, but when we started to dive deeper into it, we found it's fatally flawed. Each "bin" is really it's own project file, which requires duplicating the master clips. So every bin/project needs copies of master clips that match the sequences in it. You can't have a dailies project, edit project, music project, etc. I can't think of a use case where this would be helpful in a collaborative project setting.
it's heartbreaking that there's one original property on this list, and it's the one everyone is criticizing. Maybe for good reason, but it's still a bummer.
Extra points for the top 2 both being nostalgia mash-ups.
In all fairness, unless you're an angry spouse on the 53rd floor of a New Year high rise, books don't run the risk of dropping out of the sky in highly populated urban areas. I own a drone, and every time i fly it in LA all I think about is incredibly dangerous it is.
I can see computer assisted editing possibly help in the future. The problem is there's already enough distrust of people's human assistant editors ("are you SURE you got every shot? This is every moment where the lead said "We're gonna need a bigger boat?") Production can't even come up with a system for keeping scenes and takes coordinated (script supervisor, VTR op, DIT, 2nd AC, sound... all independently tracking scene and take, and editorial STILL has to write it in manually?)
I don't think we're going to see this anytime soon. Probably not for decades, if that. The one place it could be useful is helping with actors (face recognition) and framing (wide, medium, close-up, etc). But speech recognition tech has been (and will likely be for a while, if technical studies into it are any indication) very unreliable in this kind of scenario. Let alone determining continuity, performance, tone and delivery...
I'm all for crazy advancement in tech, even it means job elimination but I don't see this happening in any effective away.
Honestly, I think this person just wanted to say "click-bait."
This is the angriest anyone has ever been about a plugin. Plugin looks good, wish Avid could integrate with these sort of things.
