Thanks Tavis - a very helpful post. I guess a lot will change in the coming months with a new iMac Pro in the Fall and rumors of a new modular Mac Pro next year. The challenge, I guess, is when to bite the bullet and make a purchase!
And it's buggy as hell...it slows the whole sequence down...you try something complex and it crashes. This is so far behind what other text/animation tools can do...like Apple Motion. I use Motion and PremPro...while not integrated as it is with FCut, it's easy enough to create a movie in Motion and add that to the timeline in premierePro. Why isn't Adobe ahead of the curve here...they have been working with text for years from Pagemaker onwards....you'd think they would be a little more innovative in video applications. It's useful for adding simple annotations to the timeline...like "add a title here" or "insert a clip here"...but beyond that it's not worth the effort IMHO!!
I like to think there is a finite number of pixels available to us in the Universe...and we shouldn't waste them!!!
Thanks Jeroen - I'm inclined to agree with you....except....like Bill, I too have too much invested in Apple...and I want to use Motion which won't play on the pc. I am anxious to see what the ni iMac will do, and even the new iMAC PRO they just announced for release 6 months from now. I guess it'll give me time to save my pennies!!
The C200 has 6 stops standard and 10 stops extended of ND. Also it has a very wide iso range...with excellent low light performance...and the dual pixel autofocus is amazing. These features leave the Ursa in the dust in my humble opinion!
I use transcribe.com in dictate mode...listen to the clip and dictate it back to transcribe. Then create markers in premiere pro and cut/paste the text for clips I want to use into the Marker description. They are fully searchable so easy to find when you need them.
