emm.. For those clients who insist on html5, they will have to be advised that their options are very limited since its still very early days for this format. Also, none of the kolor software can be used until V2 I guess, or even if easypano where used, clients would need to be advised that there would be many restrictions..
Our clients are very well aware of whatÂ´s possible TODAY . . . 90% of them are media-professionals. But they have to think into the future. Big clients canÂ´t easily switch technologies every six months - as a hotel nearby can or a shop around the corner and so on.
When they worked out a guideline they have a resaon to do so - and they stick to it.
At the present state of technology Flash is still the way to go - but it has to be acompanied by new mechanisms to get the content run on mobile devices. Of course it will take quite some time until HTML5 can do the same as Flash can today - everybody is aware of that.
and for those of us who would travel that road, they better buy a PC since Apple Macs have even more limitations with software options and as with Tour Weaver for Mac, its been over a year now since its says html5 is coming!.. But I guess clients can wait since html5 is the way forward...
Sorry, Destiny . . . but
Have you ever been in a somewhat bigger advertising agency or a major media company? Or a somewhat bigger photo-studio in one of the capitals or big cities whereÂ´s heavy media-presence?
Have you ever been in contact with professional photographers, cameramen, image-editors? I guess are on 75% Macs.
Only in the 3D business PC-workstations definitely rule - for several reasons.
Besides of that: itÂ´s of minor interest what people use as soft- and hardware - it depends on what they achive USING the hard- and software whether they have success . . . or not. ThatÂ´s for EACH kind of hard- and software. ItÂ´s neither hardware nor software which leads to success - itÂ´s creative skills as well as reliability. And these you canÂ´t buy with devices or apps. Clients must be sure to get what they want when they book you.
But I guess the clients of these major advertising and media companies know best..
To know whatÂ´s best isnÂ´t up to the "clients of these major advertising and media companies" - its up the the agencies and media-companies. THEY are the professionals, THEY are the ones who book the people who produce the content and THEY pay and publish the content which producers like us produce.
The clients of these agencies or media companies rely on the skills and knowledge of the agencies to select the producers which match their demands best. Good agencies have good art-buyers - they know the best creatives to do the job.
P.S.: Who is "EasyPano"??
