  • Youtube Plugin – Workable Version

    I have now got to a point with the youtube plugin where it can be considered a working version. All of the settings that are most likely to be used are now available to have default values set in the admin panel.

  • Bumper Timelapse Cloud Upload

    I’ve taken the time to go back through some of my timelapse shoots from a few years ago and put them through After Effects and processed the footage to HD 720p.
