  • The video is MPEG-4. The extension .mov simply indicates that it is inside a quicktime container. You should be able to switch container without having to re-encode the video using Video Container ...
  • Nope :D But you can easily get a free action for it. Watch Aaron Nace here and download his action below the video.
  • You create a "stamp visible" layer by selecting the top most layer and hitting CTRL/CMD + ALT + SHIFT + E. This will create a "stamp" of all visible layers on top of the stack. CMD + E will merge ...
  • ^ This. the 10-18 is a great lens, sharper than the 10-22 and cheaper than all of them. If you need faster glass look at the Tokina 11-16. BUT .... do you really need a UWA for sports? Apart from ...
  • The Nikkor 12-24 is F/4 and for DX whereas the 14-24 is F/2.8 and for FX. If you want the extra stop of light you'll loose 2 mm. If you want the 12-24 you're stuck with F/4 anyways and loose some ...
  • Pros: good IQ, good AF, F/2.8, good zoom range, built like a tank, excellent manual focus Cons: Flare, no VR I wouldn't consider this one for landscape .... 14mm is just not wide enough Pros: great ...
  • Sorry for replying late and thanks for everybody posting their knowledge. In the end I decided to get the Rugged Raid and put it to work in RAID 0. That is for 4 reasons: • Best bang for buck at ...
  • Replied in A drop of red!
    It's a really nice shot but I would have preferred the empty space to be in front of her instead of behind her. I don't really know why but this always bothers me. Unfortunately there are some ...
  • You're quite welcome but there's much more knowledgeable people out there. If there is no need to duplicate a layer I don't see why you should do it. There are times when you can't do that, for ...
  • In my opinion these are great shots except for #4. The hunched over position is not great. How much editing has actually gone into these? I think there are some things that need a little help like ...
  • You can just create a new blank layer and remove blemishes using the healing brush (not the spot healing brush) or the clone stamp. Every time you get to a junction where you're not sure what to ...
  • I'm considering it in this case for speed (RAID 0). As stated before I would be hoping to upgrade it to 2x2TB SSDs in the near future and that should make a real difference in speed. I don't ...
  • I hadn't seen that one .... but I have to say that the price is pretty steep. Especially since I wouldn't be using it as a NAS but just as a RAID. I'd probably get a Terramaster.
  • Sorry but I can't make much use of the USB-C. I should have added in the OP that one of the factors I liked the LaCie is the Thunderbolt connector.
  • Created discussion thread Storage Upgrade
    Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade my external storage (with mid-2015 MBP). I use a 256GB SSD for travel and single projects. When finished I hand over to my RAID 5 which is 4 x 2TB (6TB total). The ...
  • WD Red have very good noise and heat levels but are "only" 5400 rpm. The quietest solution would be SSD .... but the cost is pretty much prohibitive ;)
  • I use a mid 2015 MBP (which has a card reader) and an external SSD in USB3 enclosure. That setup is plenty fast for travel. When I get home I just move everything to my RAID.
  • I use a 256GB external SSD as primary editing disk with my MBP. For me this sufficient for most projects. The SSD is light and small enough for travel, no problems there. In any case this is only ...
  • Night photography requires good low light capabilities not only from the camera but also the lenses That will require a macro lens. That will require a long lens and/or a wide aperture (f1.8 - f2.8) ...
  • Regardless of the software you are using you should always sharpen at the intended output size.
