    [Oliver Peters] “[Robin S. Kurz] “Try something like the “flashing timeline thumbnails” bug in Premiere, that actually stopped your show”

    I have no idea what you are referring to. I’ve never seen that myself.

    I have. Not on one of my setups, but on a client setup with the 2015 version. Its intermittent and annoying, and easily gotten rid of by turning off timeline thumbnails. Its long gone as a bug, afaik.

    [Walter Soyka] “In reality, Microsoft has a world-class research division, but they have done a dreadful job of commercializing their research. Microsoft has recently reorganized Microsoft Research to help bring their concepts to market more smoothly.”

    Although Microsoft had been working on a lot of these projects years ahead of Apple, as far as Joe-Apple is concerned, it’s Apple who is bringing new things to market before Microsoft. It’s Apple that is now an innovator in hardware. And as they say, perception is 99% reality.

  • With the “Pencil” and right applications, real well. My scrawl doesn’t make for good character recognition, but I’m not looking for that, and, I am surprised at what some programs CAN do with it, though OneNote doesn’t support it. Also, dictation is good too. The Pro’s relatively fast processing chip works well with it.

    I believe its 860.

    Yes, I think this is more likely a 2017 NAB discussion starter.

    I’m certain that there will many discussions about the displays at the 2018 NAB.

  • That mockup is actually kinda cool!

  • Sure! Or at least I can tell you what I like about it. First, I’m old school and like to take meeting notes with a pen, which onenote makes easy. It doesn’t translate them, but I’m not looking for that. It syncs those notes with the copy of onenote on my desktop. It clips and stores various objects quite well–images, files, spreadsheets, etc. Its got a browser plugin that lets me pluck any site and insert the content into my notes, either as a link or as a pasted version of the actual html. It also stores any kind of standard document file and allows you to open them in preview or the original program.

    One of the best things, from my POV, is it allows pen and print to overlap. I use this all the time. I open a script and can use the pencil as either a multicolored highlighter or a pen to notate my work just like I used to on paper. So, quickly reviewing a script, I might mark out all sound cues with blue highlighter, all VO with green, specific tc call outs with yellow, etc. Then, as I work, I can use a pen to check off things I’ve done. Its great to work with notes this way too. And all of this will be backed up in cloud and on my desktop for further editing or reference.

    There’s more, of course. But that’s how I use it. Its the easy mingling of pen and type, plus the fluidity of the notebook-like hierarchical organization that makes it work for me. Its very freeform, but very organized. And, with the ipad pro, its very responsive.

  • [Walter Soyka] “As Oliver mentions, the Surface is a fantastic small laptop, but I certainly understand why people would prefer the iPad form factor.”

    Yeah, I find my ipad pro to finally be what I had always wanted in a work tablet, largely because its about the size and feel of a pad of paper. Paired with the pen and Microsoft’s OneNote, it works really well for me. OneNote is actually a pretty amazing piece of software.
