In Topic: Hyperlapse from Instagram (iPhone App)

27 August 2014 - 03:11 PM

I have so many questions.....

 

Microsoft JUST announced their hyperlapse research project...

 

Did Instagram swoop in and buy / license the project? Why is it using the exact same name? Why is Instagram marketing taking complete ownership of the idea? The articles are quoting them as saying it was their R&D.

 

The article is saying that they are able to get around the computational (rendering) problems by using the phone's gyroscope, which makes sense.. But I'm still confused about how its the same name.

 

Its only available on iPhones - not Android. :-(

 

 

**It seems as though the MS version is a bit more complex. The instagram is basically just using the gyroscope to generate stabalization data so it can later blow up and crop the image, rather than MS's approach of patching images together, creating frames that didn't exist before.

Nothing, really. Aside from the skin and URL, its the same at this point. 

 

The data was cleaned up. The companies section was thoroughly scrubbed, but it seemed like cleaning up the freelancers / individuals area was a touchy thing. Its a wiki that anyone can modify, so if people want stuff removed they are free to do so. 


In Topic: Windows font management--Suitcase Fusion? FontExplorer?

23 August 2014 - 02:57 AM

I can vouch for Suitcase Fusion. Its never let me down.

 

Totally taking over how fonts are managed is exactly what you want, though. Its a good thing. The old way is just having a ton of fonts installed in the windows font directory. With suitcase fusion, I just enable the fonts I want for the time being, then disable them when not using them.

 

You can point it to a huge fonts folder on your NAS or wherever. Put your fonts there. It won't slow down your machine having a ton of fonts, and previewing is waaay easier.

 

If you need to roll back, its not bad either. Just back up your current font folder in its current state somewhere.

 

In the beginning you may experience a few duplicate font warnings that you just have to weed through until its nice and organized.
