Yeah… we'll just COMPLETELY ignore that ProRes raw kicks XAVC's ass in terms of quality and performance. Maybe know WTF you're talking about BEFORE you post?? Or continue making a fool of yourself. Your choice.
This is such utterly pointless CLICK-BAIT … as if there were ANY reason, if the lens isn't in fact *physically damaged* , that it SHOULDN'T deliver perfectly acceptable images!
Congratulations on a completely fallacious waste of time.
So for someone to actually say their "socks were blown off!" is painfully hilarious. You clearly need to get out more. Not a single frame of this highly amateurish, nerd-wank nonsense was somehow sock blowing… LOL… pathetic.
It brought absolutely NOTHING to the final product. It was just mindless click-bait. So anyone saying their "socks were blown off!" by this is truly making a horrendous fool of themselves. Wow.
"If you use Illustrator, Photoshop and Lightroom a lot, you get Premiere Pro and AE for 'free' ;-)"
I don't use PS or AI, since I banned both from my machine since Affinity Photo and Design came out. Both apps kicking the respective, pathetic pants off of PS and AI in terms of performance and stability. But then that isn't exactly a tough task. And for 90% of what I do Motion not only replaces AE, but it TOO tears through AE in terms of speed. For the last 10% I simply fire up my CS6 that I OWN. So if time is money, you're losing DOUBLE with Adobe products. With them costing you more in less than a year than I paid for ALL COMBINED the day they came out. You do the math. A few HUNDRED compared to several THOUSAND, with nothing even CLOSE to enough comparative value in return to make for a ROI that wouldn't get you kicked high tail out of any business school.
Easy choice for me.
You're certainly not ever going to get any real numbers from Adobe! Since they themselves have absolutely NO way of saying how many of their PPro licenses — which obviously EVERYONE with a CC sub has — are actually being USED. Apple on the other hand can tell you EXACTLY how many are in the field with an error margin of maybe +/- a few hundred. So when they say they have MILLIONS of licenses running (and they have), then you can actually believe it.
But if mere installs makes you king, then clearly IMOVIE has won, since that is on nearly every Mac in existence by default.
Blather cluelessly and make no sense much?
