Hammers’ Diarra deal falls through


first_img Press Association Administrative issues mean Lassana Diarra will not be adding West Ham to a CV which includes Real Madrid, Arsenal and Chelsea. However, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce confirmed after the 0-0 draw at Southampton that the France international would not be arriving at Upton Park. “I have to say we have waited and we have negotiated for weeks to get the right deal and now we’ve got it, we find we can’t get the right paperwork and the right clearance, so we have wasted his time and our time,” he said. “On the basis of the situation we’re in right now, he would have been a very crucial player for us between now and the end of the season.” center_img The France international has been without a club since making an acrimonious departure from Lokomotiv Moscow in August and has not played in almost nine months. Diarra reportedly refused to train for the Russian club following a bust-up with manager Leonid Kuchuk and has recently been working with West Ham ahead of prospective move. last_img read more


Picture Special: All the faces and smiles as the Star Wars festival comes to a close

SA extends African peace missions


first_img23 March 2006South Africa is to inject more resources into its African peace missions, extending the stay of its peacekeeping troops in four countries and sending a new detachment of peacekeepers to the Comoros ahead of presidential elections in that country.Government spokesperson Joel Netshitenzhe told reporters in Cape Town on Wednesday that South Africa was closely monitoring developments in politically unstable areas on the continent.Netshitenzhe said the Cabinet had decided to extend the deployment of members of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) in four African countries – Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Sudan – until 31 March 2007.South Africa has 950 SANDF members in Burundi as part of a UN operation; 46 SANDF members supporting the disarmament, demobilisation, reintegration and mediation process in Cote d’Ivoire; 339 SANDF members in Sudan as part of an African Union mission; and 110 SANDF members in the DRC.Netshitenzhe said an additional 14 SANDF members would be sent to the DRC to lend support with the integration and training of DRC soldiers.Netshitenzhe said South Africa would also deploy 371 SANDF members in the Comoros as part of an African Union force that will help to ensure an environment conducive to free and fair presidential elections.He added that South Africa had recently donated 10 tons of DDT to Mozambique to assist that country in its campaign to control malaria.“South Africa will also assist with training in the safe handling, application and monitoring of the use of insecticides in keeping with guideline of the World Health Organisation,” he said.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

NLE Showdown: DaVinci Resolve vs. Adobe Premiere Pro — Text Effects


first_imgIn this NLE showdown, we compare the text and title generators in Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve — and there’s a clear victor.Earlier this year, I attended London’s VidCon with Blackmagic to demonstrate Resolve to the passing youngsters — or as many companies view them, the customers of tomorrow. Both Adobe and Blackmagic had a presence at the convention to promote their software to the up-and-coming content creators. While many young creators care little about 12-bit footage and RAW, they do long for quirky text functions. As I hear every weekend from my ten-year-old nephew, “Uncle Lewis, can you make me an intro for my YouTube channel?”So, how does each program measure up when examining title generators, built-in text effects, and pre-made presets?Resolve TextI will openly admit that I don’t like how DaVinci Resolve handles text. This is from my write-up Is DaVinci Resolve’s Title Generator a Hit or a Miss?:I love Resolve. It is, after all, a world-class color grading application, and the designers have made massive improvements with the NLE’s capabilities in 12.5 and in 14. However, the title generator is only standard NLE quality, despite a great-looking UI. It is great for simple location introductions, or to fade the name of an interviewee in and out. But for anything that is slightly creative, you’re better off working with a dedicated motion-graphics compositor.My main frustrations involved trying to do anything creative with text in Resolve. For example, in the still below, I have two text layers (because you can’t change the font size of one line in a simple fashion). One using the standard text generator, and the other using Text+. I’m able to move “The Beat” freely by simply selecting the text within the timeline viewer itself and moving the text to a new position. The PremiumBeat text, however, isn’t as easy. I must first select the text, then activate the transform tool, then move the text.Text+, which builds the text from a Fusion source, rolled out with Resolve 15, adding a number of creative controls with how the text operates — from animating the text with a write-on effect to rotating the text in z-space. Text+ also offers a lot more design choices by allowing you to adjust the shading of the color and the properties of the appearance, such as making the font appear as just a text outline.However (and again) frustrations arise when you realize that not all individual parameters have a reset function for when using Text+. And, even if you were to click Ctrl-Z to undo the action, nothing happens. It will only undo movement and font changes.From having to click through several menus to change specific properties of the text, to the tedious process of having to select the text on the track before changing the position in the timeline monitor, it’s not a fun process. We can’t forget what is perhaps everyone’s main grievance with Resolve and its text: when choosing a font, you don’t see a preview of the font’s design. You have to scroll through each font manually. (A Blackmagic representative stated in the Resolve Facebook Usergroup that this will be changing in the future.)While I have grievances with the simple text elements in Resolve, several 3D and 2D title presets were included with the incorporation of Fusion, last year. With these new titles, you can quickly drag and drop pre-made 3D custom titles to spice up your footage. Perfect for the content creator on-the-go.2D example:3D example:However, it does appear as if these presets are hard-baked into the software; therefore, you can’t customize the properties outside of the color elements.Many Resolve functions adjust with sliders rather than numerical inputs. While this isn’t inherently a negative attribute, I do find that the sliders respond a little too extremely. The slightest movement to the right can increase the text by 100 percent when you only want to move it 5 percent.Premiere TextIt’s no surprise that the company behind Photoshop offers an excellent text function in their editing software. A few years back, they removed the “add text object” and added a type tool similar to Photoshop. Being able to hit a keyboard shortcut (T) as opposed to opening the effects library, finding the title generator, and placing it onto a track is a lot more organic. And, if we want to talk about fluidity, the ability to just click on the text to move it is effortless. Of course, being able to adjust the size, font, and color of two lines of text in a single text object is a godsend. In Resolve, both lines of text would require separate text objects.Unlike Resolve and After Effects, Premiere doesn’t offer any built-in 3D text presets. As such, you would need to import them from After Effects. However, (and again) unlike Resolve, you can apply a vast number of video effects to the text object in Premiere — from transitions to the video effects themselves. In Resolve, if I were to apply a glow effect to a fusion title, it freaks out. (Although, it’s essential to note that you can apply effects to Fusion titles, but it has to be on the fusion page and added with the fusion effects.)If there’s one thing about Resolve that irritates me more than the text tool, it’s how it handles keyframes on the edit page. Whether audio, video, or text, keyframes are adjusted on the clip itself by opening the keyframe panel on the track. In Premiere, we have a separate window within the effects controls, which makes the process smoother and more efficient when animating text properties such as size or rotation.I’ve been trying to conjure something snarky to say about the type tool in Premiere, but there’s nothing to be said. It’s a simple, useful tool that’s easy to use. I haven’t edited in Premiere for over two years now, and despite pressing every incorrect keyboard shortcut, I was able to apply and animate the text quickly and with ease.I love using Resolve, and I think it’s the very best in many areas, however, text isn’t one of them. Despite not having custom presets or 3D text applications, Premiere wins this round for the simplicity of its text.Lewis McGregor is a certified DaVinci Resolve trainer.Looking for more articles on film and video editing?

Volumes Improve in Far EastEurope Transpacific Lanes


first_imgzoom Container volumes on the headhaul Far East-Europe and Far East-North America tradelanes recorded a mild recovery in 2016, Alphaliner informed citing the latest statistics from CTS and PIERS.The Far East-Europe trade reached 15.08 million TEU in 2016, representing an increase of 1.2%. This follows a contraction of 3.1% on the trade recorded in 2015, caused mainly by a reduction in Russian demand. More stable volumes to Russia in 2016 have helped to stem the fall in total volumes to Northern Europe, while strong growth in the West Med also helped mitigate flat volume growth in the East Med.Overall Far East-Europe volumes remain below the peak of 2014, when a total of 15.39 million TEU was recorded, with Russian volumes still significantly below 2014 levels, according to Alphaliner.The Far East-US trade recorded a stronger 4.3% growth to reach an all-time high of 14.21 million TEU in 2016, based on data provided by PIERS. This marked the seventh consecutive year of positive volume growth on the Transpacific trade.Volume growth to the US West Coast and US East Coast was almost equally matched at 3.4% and 3.3%, respectively, with the opening of the new Panama Canal locks in June last year making no significant difference to the cargo split between the US West Coast and East Coast. However, volumes to the US Gulf recorded a 26.6% growth rate, mostly driven by the introduction of a new Far East-US Gulf ‘TP-18/Lone Star Express’ service by the 2M partners in May last year.last_img read more
