Now, you’ll be able to quickly find everything that’s missing and track it down. And what happens when you decide to keep your media and caches outside libraries’ assets? Well, then you can see where they’re stored and also which disk should be reconnected to get them back. In addition, you have the detailed list of all exported media, no matter if they were uploaded to the internet or exported as a file.

There’s going to be a breakthrough in the field of innovative technology soon and the problems with powering your modern hi-tech appliances, such as  smartphones, laptops and even drones are going to fade away. Forget low battery alerts in places, where your access to power and electricity is limited. Now everything could be fully charged at all times, thanks to the sensational discovery of a young scientist Olga Malinkiewicz. Her wonderful accomplishment is about to change the world of power industry.

Great success of Polish scientist
This name should soon sound very significant for everyone who’s into science and major discoveries. No matter if you live in Poland, or abroad. She will soon have her place among the most influential women, who made a big contribution to the history of the whole world, like.e.g Maria Skłodowska-Curie. Malinkiewicz, who is 32 and currently lives in Spain, made  a one breakthrough discovery that could change the whole concept of solar energy. Who knows, maybe even the whole world of science.

Her discovery was appreciated by Japanese investors, who offered her a contract worth millions on conducting her research on the market of innovative technologies. It’s also a great chance for Poland to shine among countries with representatives, who had a great influence on the history of the power industry.

Perovskite story
The whole breakthrough discovery is connected with one chemical substance called perovskite. ”It’s a calcium titanium oxide mineral composed of calcium titanate, with the chemical formula CaTiO3. The mineral was discovered in the Ural Mountains of Russia by Gustav Rose in 1839 and is named after Russian mineralogist Lev Perovski (1792–1856)”.

The hidden power of perovskite
Olga Malinkiewicz, the talented young scientist, was conducting research on perovskite and when she got to know its features, she noticed some surprising occurrence. It turned out that perovskite is a great absorber of light, which led to a conclusion that it can get a vast amount of solar energy and process it into electricity.
This innovative discovery may have many different applications, as perovskite can be shaped into light and thin objects, and is also flexible. The production cost is low, as well. Thanks to all those different features, it can be used on many various surfaces, like glass, fabrics and transparent foil.

This important breakthrough will definitely have a great impact also on the world of technology. The invention of all the amazing traits of perovskite will enable us to use it on smartphones, personal computers and other appliances, keeping them fully charged, even while being away from the battery chargers. We could extend the functioning of any device, without the need of recharging the battery. This discovery will definitely change the whole system of power industry worldwide!

mFire 4K - High-End Compositing Elements with Incredibly Low Price!
Posted by Szymon Masiak

Compositing a realistic scene with burning elements demands several important factors to be present. One is the skill of the editor, the other one, equally important, is the quality of the compositing elements used to create the effects. The latter is often a real nuisance, as accessible, usable and well-prepared elements are really hard to find. We decided to fill this gap with a set of organic fire videos that will really make a difference in compositing a fiery scene.


 

mFire 4K is a set of top-quality, pre-keyed, massive resolution files shot in ultra slow motion on Phantom Flex 4K. With diversified look, different dynamics and optimal framing every editor will find a bunch of videos that will make their scene look just the way they want it to. All of them have an alpha channel for your convenient and efficient workflow.
 


 

Just drag and drop action along with some transformations and tracking gives you a realistic combustion effect on every footage you wish. While creating the set, we payed close attention to making them as useful and practical as possible. We used all our experience in editing, compositing and FCPX Plugin creation to make them a product that every editor would want in their collection of plugins and compositing elements.

$500 per file? $99 per file? NO! 50 4K mFire files are available for incredibly low price of $99 for the whole set. That's less than $2 per file!
