    Affinity Video Editor?

    Thanks for the info. US$129 doesn't sound too bad on the wallet. Remember please that I'm in the UK - therefore we have a tendency to get ripped off. - Treasure Island I think was the phrase, that we were referred to by none other than the good ole USA and Japan. I've pre-ordered the new Nikon P1000 - £999, in the UK. In the US - $999. Work out the currency conversion rates - and its a fair difference. Todays rate - £999 = $1, 317. £299 for Final Cut Pro = $394. Again a big difference. $129 = £97 - Far easier pill to swallow Thanks again.
  2. I've just come back to this thread after nearly two years. Looks like I've got a good bit of downloading to do again. At least the new tutorials keep me in line with the new updates. Keep em coming James.

    Affinity Video Editor?

    Such a pity to hear this. I've had Affinity Photo for a couple of years now, and I'm really enjoying the fact that I have a quality image editing SW prog, and I haven't had to make a continuing rip off payment to Adobe either in a huge one off payment, or monthly extortion - sorry - subscription fees. I was really hoping that Serif Affinity would have looked into a Video Editing program. Apple Mac customers are pretty limited in what they can use. Freebie iMovie = clunky. Or another rip-off payment for Final Cut Pro at near £300. If Affinity are not going to release a Vid editor SW prog, then can anyone suggest a decent affordable program capable of 4K for less than a £100, on iMac? Thinking about it - I can maybe understand why Serif won't do this, more so that they have moved to Windows, which (correct me if I am wrong) will have a sizeable market of free and low cost vid-edit SW.
  4. Won't get mine until I return home. Stuck in the Moray Firth, sheltering from bad weather in the North Sea. I might - might get back in a week. I've been told there was a delivery attempt, from a ticket left through the door. Here's hoping its there.
  5. Got the notification from Serif on Thursday afternoon. No brainer for me. Purchased with the minute, and got the confirmation about being dispatched, and how I should recieve the book "shortly".
  6. Patrick, Will Serif be setting up a pre-order system?
  7. Appreciate the response, thank you. I was asking about the book, but glad you have answered about 1.6 release too. As long as we are not looking at a release after Christmas. I've been keen to get my hands on a properly issued workbook for some time now.
  8. Can you tell us the new date for release? Nothing worse than telling your clients, that there has been a delay - with no projected likely date for resolving the issue.
  9. With a Mac? No thanks. I'd rather keep my Mac clean without any 3rd party software. I've used YT downloaders in the past, on Windows, and the anti-virus software was working overtime. So thanks, but through experience - no thanks.
  10. Thanks James, but i'll be sticking with the vimeo links. Working away on vessels means downloading while onboard is not an option. Far easier for me to download before I leave - and then I can watch how I want, when I want - with no wifi connection needed.
  11. Sorry for not getting back sooner. Been in hospital over weekend with biliary colic. Not nice. James - thanks for the reply.
  12. C'mon Devs - I appreciate you may be busy with the Windows release, but no answer or even a reply at all?
  13. Getting into the HDR side and tone mapping in 1.5 I notice that I can select a particular source when I make up a HDR image - and this is helpful in eliminating blurred lines from multiple images. When I try and do a Pano HDR - following your tutorial vid - I lose all the sources from the Studio Sources panel. Is this deliberate - or would there just be too much memory used for this? I realise that I could source each HDR image before stitching together - but would it not be better to do this on a stitched image? If processing each image before stitching is the way to go - then so be it, but an answer either way would be grateful.
  14. Time for a bump. I'm in the process of buying a less than 9 month old 5K 27" 3.2GHz quad iMac - for less than £1000 - I'd say that was a bargain. Anyways - its a late 2015 model - so I was comparing the old with the new, on Apple's website, when I spotted this; http://www.apple.com/uk/imac/performance/ below 2nd Paragraph which starts - "Think Fast. We Did." I guess Apple are giving their own approval to Affinity Photo. Well done again guys and gals.
