Please take a few minutes to view this charming bit of animation from Simon Taylor. I have loved animation since my mother took me to see Walt Disney’s “Bambi” when I was about five. Years later, I walked into Hanna-Barbera Studios and was introduced to lovely woman by the name of Jayne Barbera. She gave me a royal tour of the studio, including the opportunity to sit and watch an animation cameraman at work. Everyone was so kind to me there. I was about 19 years old at that point. Before I left, I was given a set of animation cels, brushes, animation pegs and paints. Animation is a fascinating art and often the people involved are some of the most wonderful people in the world!

Looking to upgrade your 1080p TV to an Ultra High-Definition setup? Sony has opened pre-orders for some of the 4K UHD TV sets it showed off at CES.
Specifically, the X830C, X850C, X930C, and X940C come in sizes ranging from 43 to 75 inches, with prices starting at $1,300 all the way up to $8,000. Pre-orders are expected to ship in May.
The X830C series is the cheapest and smallest of the lot, measuring in at 43 inches or 49 inches, for $1,300 or $1,600, respectively. Then there’s the X850C, which is available in 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch flavors for $2,199.99, $3,499.99, or $4,999.99.
For those who want the best of the best, Sony has the 65-inch X930C for $4,499.99 and the 75-inch X940C for a cool $7,999.99. Both of these models will be compatible with High Dynamic Range video, which can display a wider range of brightness levels for a more lifelike experience, via a network update this summer. Amazon and Netflix have both announced plans to embrace HDR video this year.
With HDR video, “customers can enjoy a peak brightness of LED as well as deeper blacks, providing them with a superior viewing experience compared to that of normal HDR video sources as well as any other video source,” Sony said.

Adobe made a big announcement for Lightroom CC/6 yesterday, but if you use Adobe Camera Raw for your RAW processing, don’t worry: Adobe didn’t forget about you. Adobe also quietly rolled out Adobe Camera Raw 9, an update that includes a few of the same big features that were introduced with great fanfare for Lightroom CC.
Like Lightroom CC, Adobe Camera Raw can now combine multiple RAW photos into a single RAW HDR photo or panorama. The tools are found as new options in the Filmstrip’s dropdown menu.
