Grass Valley Mync - videos and photo catalog and fast edit software

28 April 2017 - 05:47 AM

I remember that some time ago we discuss about a tool to catalog and view our clip collections. A sort of Lightroom specifically designed for video. AFAIR Nick Hope was looking for a tool like this.

This is one of that hidden gems that GV does not even mention in its official YT channel and it's even difficult to find on their website.


If you are PC based you should give it a try.




Mync has a unique video preview function that is second to none. The powerful video preview function provided is unlike that of any other software. This great feature of Mync is possible because Grass Valley also developed the EDIUS professional video editing software. In addition to the h.264 format that is used widely, including on the Internet and for smartphones, various formats used in professional workplaces are supported. With Mync, unified management is possible for diverse video materials, starting with XDCAM, P2, XAVC and XF-AVC, and including video files that ordinarily could not be checked without launching video editing software. Native data can be previewed without conversion.

Allows simple editing (with export to youtube and such even).


Basic version is completely free.

Hi all,

As the title says.
Has someone some original underwater clip from a GH4 shot at high ISO to share?

Vimeo Vs Youtube in 2017

08 November 2016 - 06:38 AM

Short version:


Is a Vimeo plus account worthwile over a Youtube account?


Long story:


I'm a Vimeo Plus user since 2008 and during the years I have been trough countless unsolicited changes. 

Of course technology advances but frankly speaking I cannot call them "improvements". I think that all these updates were more focused on their business model that on user side. Of course their narrative is different.


Their latest "improvement" was the so called "Adaptive Streaming". Without going into detail, it's something Youtube has from years and it was the main reason I chose Vimeo over

YT years ago (except ads): as creator I'm in control of the streaming quality of my videos.


The backlash from among pro and plus Vimeo users that’s arisen after the launch of this feature was unprecedented. A lot of pro and plus users menaced to not renew their subscriptions. Vimeo went over as usual. Actually the same during all these years. I felt more upset from their behavior than technical reason in itself. Being a paying customer and counting zero. Anyway their business seems in healthy condition hence they are right.


IMHO at the moment I feel that the only difference between the two services are advertisements, 50 bucks/year and an amazing users community.


I'm seriously thinking to copy all my content to my nearly abandoned YT channel leaving my Vimeo downgrading to a basic account. It's a shame because during all these years around my account I created a network of friends.


What are your thoughts?

Which is better and why?

Do yo still think as today Vimeo has a better streaming quality over Youtube?



I'm not able to judge a pro account because is out of my scope as budget and features.
