Macbook Pro 2016 vs Dell XPS 15 – Video Editing Comparison (Mac vs PC!)

Macbook Pro 2016 vs Dell XPS 15 – Video Editing Comparison (Mac vs PC!)

Lately, my trusty 2014 MacBook Pro has been showing signs that it’s not really up to the 4K and RAW workflows that are starting to become common in my everyday work. It’s time to take another look at the mobile computing landscape to see what my next best investment should be.

As an Adobe Creative Cloud user, I have the option of going Mac or Windows PC. For my entire 20+ year career, I have been a Mac user, but some of the choices that Apple has been making in recent years has me thinking I should reconsider the option of other systems.  This video shows some very interesting performance results.  FCPx user would really be interested in this comparison.

VR Locomotion Solved

One the biggest limitation in VR/360 cinematography has been motion. The very nature of VR makes it difficult to explain that dude that’s always next to the camera when it moves.  The solution: build a remote-controlled, wheeled robot into the base system. That’s just what VroomCam did.

The key was to make the movement feel as natural as human movement, to really sell the feeling of “being there.”  This video explains how VroomCam have created both terrestrial and aerial systems that address exactly that.

Imagine having a better view than front row tickets while moving with the game. Nonstop.

Whether a game or a concert, get ready to experience locomotive virtual reality and augmented reality capture by being continuously next to the action through robotics and artificial intelligence. Combining our patent pending gesture replicating technology and light field camera-ready platform, VRoomCam is the world’s first automated and locomotive capture system for sports and entertainment. Goodbye dolly, cranes, jibs and tripods (fixed cameras lead to less than 1 minute viewer time and engagement, not to mention the stratospheric cost of setup and post-production nightmare).
