When light is too light

"Light" versions of software are an interesting thing. On one hand they give you access to programs that you may otherwise not consider or not be able to afford, on the other hand they may frustrate you to no end once you have started to use them and then bump into their limitations, which of […]

New Toys in Town

After what feels like a small eternity, Video CoPilot’s Element finally will make its debut on a computer near you on July 10. After all the teasing it shall be interesting how it will be received by people and how it compares to other existing and upcoming tools and plug-ins. The 3D race is on! […]

Updates and Non-Updates
