What is design? Why is it important? – Hack Design

Hello and good day! I hope everyone is having a lovely day!

Today I want to share this design educational site that  goes into great detail about their philosophy in design along with real world examples and documentation backing up their philosophy.

I am a big fan of minimalist design and this site to me was perfect, plus it is FREE, which is a great plus for me.  I just completed the first lesson and I simply had to share it because that one lesson was so packed with information!

Please let me know what you think of this website and have an incredible day!

Leap Motion – The future of Minority Report style editing?

I am looking forward to editing as in the Minority Report. If FCPX has doubled the speed of my editing I can only imagine being able to edit with both hands at the same time. 🙂
I guess I will just have to wait and see. 🙂

Edit like the Minority Report with BetterTouchTool – (almost)

I thought this was a very cool idea. I am on my way to get the mighty mouse to test this bad boy out.
But I have heard enough good reviews to believe in it 🙂

Open Source Real Time SSS Shader | BlenderNation

This is so amazing, real time skin rendering that looks very realistic.  Yes many artists have been able to re-create 3D Computer Generated skin, but to achieve this in realtime and photorealistic quality has been unheard of, until now.  Check out the video below and tell me what you think:

Michael Wohl talks ‘The Joy of FCPX’ at the Amsterdam SuperMeet

Here is a great video I found on FCP.co on the the “Joy of using FCPX”.  What I like about this video is that we can really see the direction Final Cut is heading.  With all the hoopla and debate on Final Cut, it is nice to see someone that is thinking ahead of the curve instead of overanalyzing  the change Apple chose to do.

One thing I keep telling anyone that is willing to listen, is that every Non Linear Video Editor can pretty much do the same thing in similar ways, so it is nice to see a software that is rethinking the way we work.  I like to think that one day we will edit like in the movie Minority Report, which the new FCPX seems to be heading in that direction:
