GoFlip is a simple flip-book application that connects to your GoPro Hero 5 Black via wifi.
It pulls (a copy of) all the JPG files from the SD card and creates a RAM preview of your time-lapse / hyper-lapse / stop motion without requiring the GoPro to be touched, switched off, interrupted, tethered or otherwise molested. (more…)
Video above has details but the headline says it all really. The GoPro Hero 5 Black’s HDMI port spits out clean UHD / 4K when in Live mode. For such a small camera, this is completely nuts.

Having been in beta for a while I’m genuinely excited to see Mocha (of the camera tracker fame) releasing VR tools for heavy duty 360 post-production. Dozens of useful features – rig clean-up, roto, tracking etc. – have been carried over from the original Mocha software into spherical space, plus the arrival of some new tools like re-orient and lens compositing.
Everything is explained in depth on the product page, and this post would be remiss without a video so put the kettle on and plough through all these. Will it replace the Mettle SkyBox workflow? For me, probably yes. (more…)
Got an ageing MacPro 5,1 / 4,1 kicking around your studio? Casting glances at Apple’s trashcan but reluctant to dump a lot of money into a 3-year old, closed box system with limited internal upgrade potential?
