Unplugged 7: Robert Sharp of Digieffects

Motionworks interview Unplugged 7 features Robert Sharp of Digieffects:

"Robert Sharp got into video in the early 1990’s as one of the founders of Terran Interactive – makers of Media Cleaner Pro. In 2007 Robert relaunched Digieffects – makers of Cinelook, and the more recent Camera Mapper plug-in. In this frank and open discussion Robert talks about the early days with Terran, founding Toolfarm, and what it took to bring Digieffects – an almost forgotten company – back from the dead. If you are interested in creating tutorials for Digieffects or beta-testing you’ll find contact details here."

One curiosity of interface design is that Media Cleaner Pro on the Mac was really well done, but unfortunately never imitated by video conversion applications that followed after its demise in a series of corporate buyouts.
