O.P.N. for APRIL 11th, 2019

Welcome to another edition of Other People’s News. Here are a few of the more interesting info-nuggets I’ve recently spotted around the web-o-sphere: 9to5 Mac covers a few of the biggest announcements from this year’s NAB conference, including FiLMiC Pro’s new companion app, FiLMiC Audio. This new app turns your old iOS devices (like that old iPhone 6 sitting in your closet) into wireless microphones! The article also covers FiLMiC Pro’s support for the Movi gimbal, as well as new updates from LumaFusion and Gnarbox. Read it here: https://9to5mac.com/2019/04/10/nab-2019-mobile-video-editing-lumafusion-2-0-filmic-pro-gnarbox/.  For extra credit, here’s NoFilmSchool.com’s video of the FiLMiC updates in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_pyIYxUocQ
