It's that time of year again. The annual retrospective video is complete. These are kept short because the volume of work created during a year would cause the video to be an hour or so long if everything were added even with editing. The devices used this year were the Surface Pro 3, SurfaceBook, Surface Studio and a Roland Fantom G6 for the music. Surface devices have been the daily drivers for years now for the benefits of portability/power. Unfortunately this came at the expense of mobile tablets (Android, iPads) because they simple don't compare. Portable yes, but when it comes to power and software availability, Android and iOS simply can't match a full x64 desktop OS. There's no contest, it's not even close. For the photography, time-lapse and slow motion video, the Pixel XL and Pixel 2 XL (P2XL) were used. Fantastic devices with great photo capabilities. Nexus was nice but the future belongs to Pixel for the time being.
Obviously, the software used are all non-subscription based packages. Rebelle, Amberlight, ArtRage, Clip Studio EX, Sketchbook Pro 7, Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo, Quark 2017, Power Director (15/16), Photo Director, Audio Director, Blender, InkScape, SkyFonts even Open Office, MusicBee and Steam deserve some credit for being used regularly. Now that this is done, time to spend the rest of the year playing Warframe and getting fat on cinnamon cherry pancakes and oregano eggs with cheese.
