  • If you just drop a 60p clip onto a 24p timeline, Premier Pro will skip frames so that the clip plays at normal speed with 24 frames per second. If you want it to appear as slow motion, then ...
  • Need more info.   What kind of video capabilites (4K?  4Kp60?  slow motion?).   Does he need interchangeable lenses?
  • I was disappointed to find that there wasn't any obvious way to adjust the size of icons in Windows 10's File Explorer to any size other than "Small", "Medium", "Large" or "Extra Large".   I find ...
  • That's because the watching and tracking come tied to benefits that most of us have decided that we can't live without.  If you can live without your smart phone and all of its capabilities, then ...
  • There's a big difference between tracking you in order to target advertising and stealing "data that provided credentials for access to internal business tools."
  • That's a lot harder than it sounds, because most consumer software tends to modify files by reading them into memory, making a change, writing the changes out to a brand new file, and then ...
  • That's actually a nice summary.   I think the thing that derails most people is their laser focus on avoiding disk failures, hence the obsession with RAID.  But in my experience as a home user ...
  • RAID organized with redundancy only protects against one kind of failure: a disk failure. If a company is using a single redundant RAID system as their sole backup, then they are ignoring a LOT of ...
  • Have you checked the motherboard manual?  Sometimes different ports use shared resources and enabling one set disables another - maybe something along those lines?   Seems less likely for USB, but...
  • Replied in so...
    Be careful when you enable write caching on a removable drive. Always be sure to use the "safely remove" option to make sure that all cached writes are flushed to the drive before disconnecting ...
  • Just checking all the bases.  If the drive gets misidentified as a removable device then it gets assigned a drive letter anyway.
  • I totally agree.  That's why I have two external drives that I alternate in a weekly cycle and two more that I alternate in a monthly cycle.  My backup drives are larger than my online drive, ...
  • I want reiterate and to make sure you understand that RAID will not work as a backup for you.   If you screw up your LR catalogue a mirrored RAID system will make sure that the "copy" is exactly as ...
  • Did you open up Disk Manager to make sure there was a valid partition on the drive?   Without a partition Windows Explorer has nothing to show.
  • Replied in my suggestions
    For backups I swear by "bare" hard drives connected to my PC via a USB 3.0 hard drive dock.  The nice thing about bare drives is that they're cheaper, you know for sure exactly what drive you're ...
  • Which version of Office did you have?
  • It seems to me that you're confusing a need for bulk storage to hold all your data with the need to back it up to make sure it doesn't get lost. Those are two different requirements that need two ...
  • Motorized gimbals are far less sensitive to minor balance issues than balance-based gimbals, and they aren't affected by breezes or dynamic balance issues.  The difference in ease of use is like ...
  • I haven't seen one so far.  Another good question is whether or not the offending add-ons will be automatically removed from browsers where they've been installed.  If not, then a list is most ...
  • Created discussion thread Google Bans Spyware Add-ons
    Google has banned more than 70 add-ons from its Chrome browser after researches discovered that they were spying on users. I wonder how this will affect other browsers such as Edge and Firefox...
