Disinfect Your Keyboard

Keyboards, particularly those shared by multiple people, harbor huge quantities of bacteria. If you want to reduce the chances of picking up your co-worker's cold, you can disinfect your keyboard with disinfecting wipes. To avoid damage to the keyboard, be sure to:

  • Unplug the keyboard before disinfecting it.
  • Squeeze out any excess liquids from the cloth to avoid liquid dripping into the keyboard.
  • Don't let any liquid from the wipe sit for long periods of time on the keyboard.
  • Don't scrub the keyboard, just lightly wipe down. Rubbing too hard leaves behind more lint.
  • Avoid cleansing cloths that contain bleach.

Final Cut Pro X 10.1.2, Compressor 4.1.2, Motion 5.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has updated its lineup of professional video editing apps, releasing Final Cut Pro X 10.1.2, Compressor 4.1.2, and Motion 5.1.1. Final Cut Pro X can now store optimized, proxy, and rendered media in any location outside the library, and media can be deleted from within the video editor. The update can also apply the Rec. 709 high-definition standard in real time to high dynamic range and wide color gamut video from ARRI, Blackmagic Design, Canon, and Sony cameras. Other changes include improved speed and accuracy when synchronizing clips, addition of countdown and automatic Audition creation from multiple audio recording takes, and the capability to share 4K video to Vimeo.

Final Cut Pro, Compressor, and Motion also receive added support for the new Apple ProRes 4444 XQ codec, which preserves dynamic ranges more effectively than the Rec. 709 standard during editing (for more on ProRes 4444 XQ, see this white paper). Motion 5.1.1 receives improved Sequence Text behavior for animating characters, words, and lines, plus enhanced Contrast filter parameters for refined adjustments. Compressor 4.1.2 improves status display and responsiveness when sending video from Final Cut Pro X and Motion, plus improves performance and color accuracy when encoding H.264 source files from GoPro cameras. (Final Cut Pro, $299.99 new, 2.28 GB, release notes, 10.9.2+; Compressor, $49.99 new, 304 MB, release notes, 10.9.2+; Motion, $49.99 new, 1.68 GB, release notes, 10.9.2+; all three titles available from the Mac App Store with free updates for previous purchases)

As a day one Aperture user - I think people will be hard pressed to commit to Apple for Pro apps any longer.
