Episode 72: Workflow 2016, featuring Lumberjack

In this episode of The Terence and Philip Show, the guys discuss the very unsexy topic of workflow, particularly automating the workflow.

Other topics include automation; Digital Heaven’s announcement of SpeedScriber; how Lumberjack has developed based on user, and use, feedback; the post NAB development of noteLogger; Prelude LIveLogger and the Premiere Pro ecosystem and NLE market shares; how development resources are allocated.
