I didn't say "bad". I said hardware NR was going the way of the
dinosaur, and I stand by that. I also stand by the fact that NR isn't as
important these days as grain reduction based on newer telecines as Rob
put forth. What's really funny about pointing out that you've made great
strides in hardware based motion detection is that it's irrelevant. It's
too little too late. Spend some time on the CML or even the Discreet
boards and look at how people are doing and thinking about doing work.
Check out an FCP forum. If you don't show some seriously great software
based solutions at NAB I think your time is running out quickly... and
it's not just a problem I have with Digital Vision by the way.... it's
any of your contemporaries that are still thinking the same way as your
company is as well.
And just because I LOVE this particular brand of selling... Do you tell
ALL your customers that bought gear from you in good faith that the NEW
stuff is really "The Good Stuff" and merely imply if they would just buy
your newest bunch of crap that they would somehow be better off? I guess
I should have mentioned that I own a DVNR1000 AND an HDNR... making me
one of the more stupid colorists I know that owns 2 seperate boxes for
doing NR... total cost? over $100KUS.
Guess I should have waited for the "newer" algorithims from the past 16
months. And you kinow what? maybe I should have waited till they come
out with a G6 or the Spirit 8K, or the Viper 2, or D7 or the next
generation Xbox ( the only thing I own that keeps me sane ).....
But if I wait, how do I do the work I have NOW? Thanks for the sales
advice, and thanks for making sure every product you release actually works.
