Most people don't even know what a multi-host-app library of GPU-accelerated tools is. But Red Giant's newly expanded Universe includes nine new effects and transitions. These updates expand the Universe toolset to 68 effects and transitions, more than half of which are free and run in Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X and Motion, and now, Sony Vegas.

You don't get this opportunity very often, so you have to take advantage while you can. Dan Winters' Road To Seeing is a monumental work of contemporary photography that everyone who handles a camera needs to see. This is not only a visual testament to the photographic art, it will become a collectors treasure. Be aware: it will not be available for long in this hardbound format. October 29, 2014
You got to admit that making photos into a comic book is pretty cool. But this update makes it easy to turn photo pages into high-definition movies with dynamic camera movement, professionally designed captions, and fun sound effects. Version 1.3 also includes 50 licensed sound effects that can be assigned to each photo. September 15, 2014
Studio allows anyone to create and share amazing artwork. By combining a powerful design editor with a new social interaction, Studio helps the average person overcome the challenges of design creation. Studio offers a layer-based editing system allowing for simple yet sophisticated design creation.

Seriously? I was watching a movie the other evening -- and the images and takes and cuts and editing were all excellent, but the experience was ruined. Why? Too much camera movement. Since the days of MTV, a lot of people have been lead to believe hand-held movement is cool. A little bit goes a long way. Mostly, if there's too much -- it's just in poor taste, and distracts from the message of the movie. Vidiographers : try the Smoothie and get RID of all that annoying camera movement!
