The nipple scene was enough to ruin the movie, not to mention everything else terrible about it. Rian should have known better than to keep a useless scene showing an old guy doing completely boring things that don't matter at all to the story...besides goofy space cow nipples...that's funny. A good director would have said, "WTF is that...and why is it in my film?"
Audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is all one needs to know.
Purchased these along with an FSB8 for our FS5 and FS7. WONDERFUL!!! Can't repeat enough what fantastic legs they are compared to all the crank-twist Vintens I've used for 20+ yrs. Will NEVER go back.
For anyone that was at least Year's AdobeMax, the impression I got is that their new AI will do all the creating and a monkey just presses a button according to the template they want....and viola. Yet, at the same time they're telling us they're empowering the creator....which is code for "uploading images/video/templates so everyone else can buy their stuff while adobe takes their cut." In other words, empowering Adobe to make money off of what others are creating. What I saw and when you looked at the glassy eyed designers to your left and right, were the creators all thinking ??WTF?? in unison.
What we all really want is stability and most importantly, SPEED!!! There honestly aren't all that many "features" we really need right now. Adobe does NOT take advantage of the power that those of us who own real workstations and not 4 yr old MacBooks or the base iMac.
What professional is editing video on the Iphone or Ipad?
We had a Canon XL1 and boy were we excited at the time. Horribly front heavy for the shoulder though. Too bad Hi-8 was such a terribly delicate format. Big mistake ever bothering with it.
Older decks still have value due to the glut of media that still needs to be transferred to digital. We're in the process right now of transferring 1000s of tapes from Beta, DVCAM, Hi-8, 3/4, you name it. Sending it all out to a service actually. All the old cameras though are useless. There's just no logical reason to record to tape now or ever have to go back. An iphone or any basic HD camcorder you can buy at Walmart is better than any of our $30k Sony ENG rigs we used pre-2000s.
Corporations and Businesses actually LOVE the subscription model. It makes budgets easy. Procurement loves consistency. Of course a solo guy out of his house doesn't want to pay monthly, when he can continue to use software that works good enough for him in a closed system. However, 60/mo to do business is still cheap. I'd love to not have to pay for years if its ok for me. But Davinci won't be free once it reaches a certain market penetration. Count on it. It's a business decision for them that will be exploited once the time is right.
