We are back. 26 hours of journey in one direction. Las Vegas, the Sin City (literally) and us (me and Jakub) at NAB.... plus 100k other enthusiasts.
It was so much fun to go to NAB and such a great privilege to meet you all. If you missed our Instagram feed, you may still reach it at: http://instagram.com/motionvfx.
It was an incredible experience when some of you were spotting the MotionVFX logo on our t-shirts in such a tremendous crowd and were stopping us to say hello. Thank you! We also had an honour to have a small booth at the Supermeet, where we had a chance to present mObject and other products in front of a real crowd. Thank you for stopping by! If you forgot your 20% OFF code, it's "supermeet", so make sure to use it till the end of April :)
I had a chance to finally meet in person folks like Mark Spencer and Steve Martin from Ripple Training, with whom we had breakfast (thank you for having us guys! I feel like I knew you all my life!). Later on we had a fun chat with Andrew Kramer from Videocopilot, we were interviewed by Larry Jordan from DigitalProductionBuzz, Chuck Joiner from MacVoices, Gordon A. Burkell from AOTG, Montreal Final Cut Pro User Group and others.
NAB 2014 was all about 4K and MacPro. Every camera producer was 4K ready and every other booth had a new MacPro (it's called "smart advertisement"). However, we did enjoy it a lot if you ask me. I'm not a person who's fascinated with 4K production as most of the tools and hardware available on the market are not ready for 4K. Yet. You need more power, more storage, more everything. The States didn't fully convert to HD yet and here you've got 4K coming. Well, we saw an 8K cinema and its footage shot in 8K 120fps if 4K is not enough. Sure, it was amazing, but this may launch in Japan first (or only) and then the world will try to follow or catch up with it in the next... 20 years or so. I don't know.
We spent 3 days on NAB's floors showing you as much as we could via Instagram, so I encourage you to go through all our photos to find out what exactly happened in Vegas last week: http://instagram.com/motionvfx
It was definitely worth it. We have new ideas and just returned to the office starting a new chapter in our productions. My team did a tremendous job working hard while I was out and we have products ready for at least next 6 weeks, so stay tuned for new releases. We will start with mFire 50% off tomorrow and then mWater will arrive next week among other really cool products.
Thanks again for having us, stopping by and saying hello. Thank you for all your support. Thanks to you we are able to continue what we do. Thank you.
