We have been trying out the Affinity Photo Beta over the last few days and we are impressed. It looks and feels like Photoshop, but it's built with new fast code and will be an outright purchase when launched.
A slightly different lineup this week, We have a new MacBreak Studio and Motion 5 minute episode, but this time they are accompanied by a Resolve tutorial.
Who says multicam switching is just for editing? Now you can switch between four camera angles on this experimental YouTube music video by Madilyn Bailey.

A whole range of subjects for this week's Ripple tutorials. Two from Mark on Motion and one from Steve with FCPX. All without an ELO gag too. (We were tempted but these tutorials came out of the blue.)
This short film shows the construction of the Leadenhall Building in London. 2 years and 8 terabytes of 5K & 7K timelapses/hyperlapses all edited (in the end) on Final Cut Pro X then published at 4K resolution. A stunning FCPX user story.
Everybody loves free plugins and yes, we will bring back #freeeffectfriday soon. In the meantime, CoreMelt has just published these free effects online. (Ok we corrected it, it should really be 10 plugins.)
We have to say congratulations to Pixel Corps and Ripple Training for getting their 300 episode of MacBreak Studio published. This time they look at that old chestnut, dynamic trimming in FCPX and FCP7.
Attention filmmakers, this is going to save you a lot of time. The new application PrimariesExporter lets editors export sets of clips with synced audio and effects from the primary storyline in FCPX. All with just a few clicks.
