Not sure if many of you have heard about Microsoft's new development in video editing technology, but I just ran across a couple of very impressive articles about it. The idea is to be able to edit on a 3D surface by flattening it. This is very new to the consumer market and I found it interesting that it seemed so easy to work with, (although we don't actually see any operation). The other goal Microsoft is working at with this new development is to eliminate specialized software for different editing scenarios. For example, instead of having to use Photoshop, Ultra and then Encore you would just use the individual program for everything.
