I was playing very well, and everything about the way this week unfolded just felt right,” he added.last_img read more

Random House Books Finally Arrive in Apple’s iBookstore

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts audrey watters But for fans of Random House titles (these include Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code and Barack Obama’s Dreams from My Father, for example) who have wanted to use the iBookstore and iBook apps for their iPads and iPhones, the addition is good news. And it’s likely good news for Apple as it unveils its iPad 2 today and can boast that its bookstore is now stocked with all six of the major publishers – HarperCollins, Hachette, Penguin, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, and now Random House. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Apple#NYT#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Only days after announcing that it has agreed to adopt the agency model for e-book sales, Random House books are beginning to appear in Apple’s iBookstore.Random House, the largest consumer trade publisher, was the final hold-out of the major publishing companies to agree to the agency model, something that is a requirement in order to have e-books carried by Apple. The agency model means that publishers take a 70% cut of sales with the rest going to the retailer. Random House was originally reluctant to agree to these terms, fearing they would impact profits. Although its e-books haven’t been available via the iBookstore, consumers have been able to buy them elsewhere – via Amazon or Barnes & Noble, for example.Agency pricing does mean that the publisher gets to set the price for books and it also eliminates any discounting, a move that’s beneficial for publishers and retailers arguably. But many customers have complained that agency pricing eliminates competition and keeps e-book prices artificially high.last_img read more

Video Tutorial: Better, Faster, Stronger Editing Tips

first_img1. Learn Your FootageKnowing everything about what you have to work with is incredibly valuable when it comes to assembling a timeline. Go through every clip and analyze its content. You can do this by putting them in a single timeline and pulling out your favorites.A great way to highlight footage you want to work with is to raise your favorite shots to the second track in a new timeline. Then, your next step will be to ripple-edit the remaining shots in the lower track.2. OrganizationBe. Completely. Organized. Label clips that are good or bad — make notes about which parts work and which don’t. Is it a drone shot? Is it an interview clip? Folders, bins, and labeling are key to a fast and successful edit.(Quick tip: if you change your browser mode to thumbnail, it can speed up your workflow immensely. You can now skim through clips without even clicking them.)3. Create ProxiesIf you’re working with incredibly large files that take forever to process, take the time to create proxies. This may eat up some time at first, but in the long run, it will make your edits way more efficient. Trust me.4. Reveal in ProjectIf you’re searching for a clip’s origin, instead of skimming through multiple bins, just right-click and select reveal in project. This can speed up the process of looking for clips, audio, assets, and sequences. You can even select reveal in finder to find the original files on your computer.5. Low ResExport low resolution files for feedback. Instead of doing high-res exports that take up space and upload time, create a smaller file. I like to set my export setting to YouTube 1080p then customize my bit rate, change VBR to CBR, then let the export sit in the 6-8 realm.And there you have it. Some straightforward tips to keep things efficient.
