        Amazon Prime first to stream HDR video content http://www.redsharknews.com/post/item/2687-amazon-prime-first-out-of-the-gate-with-hdr-content http://www.redsharknews.com/post/item/2687-amazon-prime-first-out-of-the-gate-with-hdr-content Mozart in the Jungle: HDR starts here

        It’s something of a limited launch: one series in one country on one make of television, but it’s still a launch. HDR is coming, albeit slowly, and it's coming first to Amazon Prime.

                  With major updates to Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere Pro, not to mention the addition of the new integrated Adobe Stock, as far as upgrades go the 2015 release of Creative Cloud certainly looks like a biggie.

                    Game of Thrones, Strange & Norrell: TV VFX has become truly astonishing http://www.redsharknews.com/post/item/2659-game-of-thrones,-strange-norrell-tv-vfx-has-become-truly-astonishing http://www.redsharknews.com/post/item/2659-game-of-thrones,-strange-norrell-tv-vfx-has-become-truly-astonishing Conjured sand horses race to rescue a beached ship

                    Two very different genre shows, HBO’s Game of Thrones which finished last night and the BBC’s ongoing Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, have convinced us that we are in a new era of television special effects and that TV can now do (nearly) everything that film can.
