The year now starting is going to be the year of the SSD, both SATA and NMVe, with companies offering new drives at lower prices. BIOSTAR announced its 240GB SSD for $35.
With Samsung’s announcement of its new Samsung 970 EVO Plus, a new and faster 250GB NVMe SSD which costs only $89.99, and the introduction by Western Digital’s of its WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD, with a 250GB version priced at $79.99, SSD prices are tumbling down this 2019. The result of prices being lowered for NMVe means that regular SSDs are coming down to
This city flythrough was created entirely using After Effects, with the final composition involving over 18,000 layers. I made this almost 7 years ago, at the start of 2012, and it was all created in After Effects CS5 running on a 2009 MacPro. Just to clarify – there is no 3D here, only After Effects. And today we’re looking at how – and why – I put it all together. Even in 2012, when I was making it I knew it was an unusual project, and I’ve been planning to talk about it for some time.
Western Digital introduced its new NVMe SSD, including a version with integrated heatsink, the high-performance WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD with up to 2TB capacity on a single-sided M.2 form factor.
The PC is back in all its glory, as both a high performance entertainment machine and a working station, thanks to advancements in PC and graphics technologies. From gaming to VR, from video editing to photo edition, the PC is fast becoming the reference machine, and solutions like the WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD announced by Western Digital at PAX South make complete sense, as users need both
If you want to move your OS to a faster SSD, the time to do so has arrived: Samsung just introduced its new 970 EVO Plus, and it’s a Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD that gives “fast” a new meaning.
If you think your OS is running fast on a regular SSD, then imagine how it will run when a NVMe SSD is used. The temptation is high, specially with the prices coming down on these drives. In fact, Samsung just announced this new Samsung 970 EVO Plus, and the prices start at $89.99 for the 250GB model, which

Want to decide how smooth or coarse your blur is? This is the effect to use.
The next few movies we’re going to share from our retired Insight Into Effects course for Adobe Affects will focus on some less-used blurs. Box Blur is one of the most versatile in that you can decide how many “iterations” are used to determine the smoothness of the blur, going anywhere from a low-res over-compressed look to creating wispy clouds of faint color from your original footage.
If you’re looking for a simple tool that can yield drastic results in a quick and efficient manner while editing your images, then look no further than the targeted adjustment tool built right into Adobe Camera Raw.
If you’ve ever used luminosity masks, you know how perfect they can be for creating specific looks, effects and styles, and are also hugely purposeful for specific utility processes in your workflow. There are many ways to go about creating luminosity masks, but have you considered simply using the Gradient Map adjustment layer for this?
Extraordinary on screen, remarkable as a person, Jeff Bridges will receive the American Society of Cinematographers Board of Governors Award on February 9.
A keen photographer, Jeff Bridges continues to create photographs depicting the actors, crew and locations, building a narrative of the industry from his point of view. He is not a filmmaker, but he is a story teller, both through his career as an actor and as a photographer. On sets, Bridges regularly takes pictures that illustrate the behind the scenes we never get to see. After completion of each motion picture, he edits the images into a
In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe talks about the newest updates to Boris Continuum Complete 2019’s Title Studio. This first, in a multi-part tutorial series, will focus in on BCC’s excellent title application. This effect has improved by leaps and bounds since it’s inception, and if you’re a Media Composer editor who does most of their titling in app, this will become your “Go To” effect for high end titling, in both HD and larger than HD projects!
