FxAndy is a Sweet Film Simulator for Final Cut Pro

February 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments

Yes the name of the plugin is FxAndy and I did not name this plugin, but I do love it. First off, I’m not a film person. I’ve learned how to shoot in the digital realm but I do understand the beauty of film. This plugin gives some of that beauty back […]

When you purchase a new Mac you have the option of transferring data from your previous Mac to the new one in the welcome setup. By all means do it if you are working with the same processor. Do not use it if you are moving from a Power PC chip to an […]

G5 has Died

December 4th, 2009 · 6 Comments

The time… 7:15 PM on Thursday evening on December 3rd, 2009.
I can’t figure out what is wrong with it. The hard drive is healthy, checked all 8 Gigs of RAM, took out all the PCI cards, switched out the video card, used Tech Tool Deluxe and everything passes.
I have everything backed up […]

Mac Pros Do Not Upgrade to Snow Leopard…For Now

September 22nd, 2009 · 9 Comments

I can’t feel the difference from 10.6 from 10.5.8. The speeds I’m sure are there and tech geeks might understand and recognize the difference but I can’t tell. Here is an Apple online document in their support section.
Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard is designed to protect your Mac from certain incompatible software […]

Crying Is Not An Option

February 20th, 2009 · 1 Comment

As much as I would like to cry, it will not help. As I was ingesting footage from a recent shoot my G5’s main hard drive crapped out on me. 2 weeks ago I backed up my main hard drive because Apple’s Time Machine kept having errors and wouldn’t backup my main hard […]

Am I Apple Material

January 13th, 2009 · No Comments

I had a great interview for a position at the new Apple Store in Greensboro, NC. The store is not yet open but will pretty soon. Would you feel comfortable seeing me at the Genius bar or as a Creative (an Apple Personal Trainer)?

October 28th, 2008 · 4 Comments

I love these Apple update products. It makes you look at your functional machine and want it to explode so you can get the brand new Mac product. Maybe not this time. The new Macbook Pro forgot to include a firewire 400 port. But they have included a firewire 800 port. […]
