Today, I've decided to share with you exactly what I use and how I do it as well! We're talking about the reflector 3 app, by airsquirrels.comSo many of you.

How To Use Reflector How To Record Your Phone.
As I was researching my upcoming webinar on VR, I needed to find a way to stream my i Phone screen, because there’s an application that controls the VR camera that only runs on i OS. NOTE: I first wrote this review using the trial version. Creating a still image of the i Phone screen is easy: press two of the side buttons; which two depends upon which version of i Phone you have. Then, when I realized that I really needed this software for my upcoming webinar, I bought it and replaced all my screen shots. After some research, I discovered Reflector 3, by Squirrels. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY“Reflector 3 is a wireless mirroring and streaming receiver that works with Google Cast and Airplay-enabled devices. Everything you do on your phone, tablet or computer can be wirelessly sent to Reflector.”While this software works great for streaming, it is actually part of a much larger set of software specifically designed for education, where a teacher can monitor what students are doing on their mobile devices, including: accessing and managing preferences, customizing student devices, recording device screens, connecting Chromebooks, Android devices, i Pads and i Phones and checking on student work. $14.99 (US) Squirrels provides a full-function 15-day free trial, which watermarks the image. GET STARTEDBoth the i Phone and the computer need to be on the same network. On the i Phone or i Pad, swipe to reveal the Control Center. Tap Screen Mirroring Tap the name of your computer. The software displays a code on your computer which you enter into your i OS device. Once the code is accepted, your i OS device is mirrored on your computer desktop. The actual image is quite large, filling most of the vertical space on the screen. RECORDING THE SCREENWhile I record my webinars using Screen Flow, from Telestream, sometimes you may need to record just the i Phone screen by itself. By clicking the red record button in the top right corner of the i Phone image on your computer, you can record the i Phone on your computer. This generates an MP4 video file which can be stored on your desktop. This is an ideal screen-capture utility because it uses the storage capacity of your computer, rather than your phone. NOTE: Once you end recording, Reflection 3 requires time to convert the file and save it. I found that, on my system, this takes about real time to export. Also, the camera icon, just to the left of the red record button, allows you to capture a screen shot directly to your computer, which greatly simplifies moving screen shots from an i Phone to a computer for articles such as this. Here’s the i Phone movie on the left, with the live stream overlaid on the right. (The trial version is watermarked.) The MP4 file can be edited in the NLE of your choice. The image size is big – 1792 x 1792 pixels – so you have plenty of resolution to work with. OTHER OPTIONSThere’s also a menu bar utility that displays all the devices connected to your computer via Reflection 3, while the gear menu allows access to preferences, software updates, and other options. SUMMARYSquirrels has a variety of software tools that allow different devices to connect and stream wirelessly. While I haven’t used Reflection 3 in one of my weekly webinars, that will change starting with this Thursday’s presentation. EXTRA CREDITHere’s a link to learn more about their educational versions: Reflector Teacher. So far, I’m very impressed with how easy Reflector 3 is to use and how well it works. Arch Linux Command line utilities Endeavour OSFAQLinux Linux Administration Linux Basics Linux Commands Linux Tips & Tricks Manjaro Opensource Package management Python Tips and Tricks Unix/Linux Beginners Utilities Maintaining up-to-date mirror list in your Arch Linux gives some major benefits. If you use updated mirrorlist, you could easily avoid slow download rate, and timed-out error messages while installing, and updating packages. This tutorial explains what is Reflector and how to retrieve latest mirror list in Arch Linux using Reflector. However, there should be more than just one server per country, but the mirror list file will usually have only one. So, how do you add or retrieve the latest and update-to-date mirror list of your choice in Arch Linux? Reflector will retrieve and filter a list of the latest as well as fastest Arch Linux mirrors based on the speed, country, and age (last server synchronization). Reflector is free and open source Python script, which works just fine on Arch Linux and its derivatives such as Endeavour OS and Manjaro Linux. To install Reflector in Arch Linux and its variants such as Endeavour OS and Manjaro, run the following command from your Terminal: The above command will install Reflector along with its dependencies rsync and curl packages. Backup current mirror list Before running Reflector, you must backup your default mirror list file. Because, Reflector will overwrite it and replace the existing mirror list with a new one. To backup the current mirror list, run: ##################################################################### ########### Arch Linux mirrorlist generated by Reflector ########### ##################################################################### With: reflector --latest 20 --protocol https --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist When: 2021-06-10 UTC From: https:// Retrieved: 2021-06-10 UTC Last Check: 2021-06-10 UTC Server = https://mirror.osbeck.com/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://asia.mirror.pkgbuild.com/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://archlinux.thaller.ws/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://arch.mirror.constant.com/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.f4st.host/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://phinau.de/arch/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirrors.cn/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.pseudoform.org/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://arch.mirror.square-r00t.net/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.pkgbuild.com/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.allworldit.com/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.allworldit.com/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.telepoint.bg/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://me/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.chaoticum.net/arch/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://mirror.efect.ro/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://archmirror.it/repos/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://archlinux.mailtunnel.eu/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://archlinux.qontinuum.space:4443/$repo/os/$arch Server = https://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch 2.4. Retrieve country-specific mirror list You can also restrict mirrors to selected countries. For example, if you live India, you might want to update the mirrorlist with the servers only from India. To list all available Arch Linux mirrors world-wide, run: Country Code Count ---------------------- ---- ----- Australia AU 19 Austria AT 6 Bangladesh BD 1 Belarus BY 4 Belgium BE 3 Bosnia and Herzegovina BA 2 Brazil BR 11 Bulgaria BG 11 Canada CA 20 Chile CL 8 [...] As you see in the above output, reflector lists the available mirrors in the world along with country code and the number of mirrors in each country. As of writing this guide, the most number of Arch Linux mirrors are located in USA (134 mirrors), Germany (114), and Netherlands (51). To retrieve a mirror from a specific country, you can use the country name or country code, or a mix of both. The following command will retrieve top 5 mirrors from India, sort them by the download rate, and save them to the mirrorlist file. ################################################################################ ################# Arch Linux mirrorlist generated by Reflector ######################### ################################################################################ # With: reflector --verbose --country India -l 5 --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist # When: 2021-06-10 UTC # From: https:// # Retrieved: 2021-06-10 UTC # Last Check: 2021-06-10 UTC Server = Server = https://mirrors.piconets.webwerks.in/archlinux-mirror/$repo/os/$arch Server = India Server = Server = Server = https://mirrors.piconets.webwerks.in/archlinux-mirror/$repo/os/$arch [...] 2.7. Select fastest mirrors Reflector can retrieve a fastest mirror for your Arch Linux. The following command retrieves the 5 fastest 10 HTTPS mirrors located in United States, sorts them by download speed, and overwrites the file # # Empty lines and lines beginning with "#" are ignored. All other lines should # contain valid reflector command-line arguments. The lines are parsed with # Python's shlex modules so standard shell syntax should work. All arguments are # collected into a single argument list. # Recommended Options # Set the output path where the mirrorlist will be saved (--save). --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist # Select the transfer protocol (--protocol). # Consult the list of available countries with "reflector --list-countries" and # select the countries nearest to you or the ones that you trust. For example: # --country France, Germany # Use only the most recently synchronized mirrors (--latest). --latest 5 # Sort the mirrors by synchronization time (--sort). --sort age You can also edit this file and change the parameters as per your requirements. This file accepts all of the reflector command-line arguments. You can group the arguments together on a single line or split across many lines, with optional blank lines and comment lines beginning with In this guide, we learned what is Reflector, how to retrive up-to-date Pacman mirror list for your Arch Linux system using Reflector script and finally how to update Arch Linux mirror list automatically.A reflector is any item with a large flat surface off of which to bounce light. You don’t have to go out and buy an actual reflector. In a studio environment I’ve used white foamboard, a white sheet, a mirror and even a piece of cardboard covered in foil. When shooting on location, I’ve used a white wall, a car’s back window and wet surfaces. But if you want a handy take-it anywhere kind of reflector, it’s best to buy an actual one. I’ve got two favourites, which I’ll tell you about in a moment. Not only are reflectors really cheap, light and easy to carry, but they are essential to creating well lit images. Unless you’re photographing landscapes or wildlife, you should never set out on a shoot without one. What’s more, reflectors come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and a selection of colours. Today, however, I’m just talking about the easily handheld type. Rather get your lighting right in camera than spend ages on the computer lightening shadows and painting in light. Also, the beauty of a reflector is that it’s lightweight, collapsable and extremely versatile. So it seems a shame not to become best friends with one. I photograph mainly portraiture and occasionally products, so, aside from my camera, my reflectors are my most used gear. If you’ve ever photographed food, you’ll know that a reflector can be the difference between an okay shot and a beautiful shot. Well, that and the exposure, the light and the composition of course. But you get my meaning – learning how to use a reflector properly will make a massive difference to your portraiture and still life photography. What’s more, if you’re on the move and shooting portraits solo, a reflector is a particularly useful tool. I have two handheld reflectors, which I use for different situations. I’m not saying you should use these ones specifically, but they work really well for me. As I said, there are loads of different reflectors to choose from. If I’m shooting solo, my go to reflector is the Lastolite Trigrip Reflector 75cm Sunlite/Soft Silver. There are other sizes, but I find the 75cm one gives me the best combination of size and ease for holding. The trigrip is particularly useful when shooting solo as I can hold the reflector in one hand and the camera in the other. Well, I have a workaround to be able to do this, which I’ll mention in a moment. The soft silver side is a series of fine white alternating with fine silver strips and the sunlite side is fine white rows alternating with fine gold strips. I prefer it over a straight white or a straight silver reflector, because it gives the punchier light offered by the silver, combined with the softer element of the white. I use the soft silver (silver/white) side most often as the sunlite (gold/white) side can be a touch too yellow for my liking. You can also get trigrip reflectors with other combinations of colours, such as gold/silver, silver/white, gold/white etc. If I’m shooting with an assistant, my life is of course a lot easier. However, when it is windy, the trigrip can be tricky for an assistant to hold in place. This is when we use the Interfit 5-in-1 82cm Reflector as it can be held on two sides and offered a bigger area for reflection. I also use this one when I’m photographing indoors as it is bigger than the Lastolite Trigrip that I have. What I really like about it is that it’s super versatile as it has 5 different surfaces – black, white, silver, gold and translucent. It has a cover that is black on one side, gold on the other and if turned inside out, is white on one side and silver on the other. You can change the cover in seconds simply by unzipping it to use the translucent screen, or turning it inside out it and zipping it back on to use the other colors. I can’t just hold my camera in one hand as I don’t have the strength in my hands. So, instead IThis provides a ledge for my camera lens to rest on, which helps me to hold it steady. I can then just change the angle of the reflector by turning my wrist to pick up the sun reflection by twisting my wrist. If it weren’t for the easy handle of the trigrip design, I couldn’t do this. It takes a bit of practice, but you’d be amazed at how quickly you get comfortable with it. This is where you start seeing the versatility of the 5 in 1 reflector. You can use it for: The white, silver and gold sides help out by providing up to 1 stop of reflection. I use the white side most often as I prefer a soft light. If I’m struggling for light, or want a more contrasty light I’ll use the silver side. I avoid using the gold side as the light it reflects too yellow for portraiture. If, however, you want to cast really warm light on your subject, gold is a good option for you. The black surface is great for negative fill (removes the light) and will improve shade contrast by 1.5 stops. I asked my assistant to hold the reflector above to cut out the sun, but didn’t specify that I wanted her to use the translucent screen. Also, I wasn’t paying attention to what she was doing and didn’t realise that she’d left the black cover on. If you have light bouncing into the shot that you don’t want there, you can use it to block the light. You can see the black fill on the model’s shoulders. An example would be if light is bouncing off a reflective surface, such as water, glass or metal. You can also use it to block light from hitting the front of the lens, which will cause lens flare and haze. An added bonus is that it is also super helpful when you’re shooting outdoors on a really hot day without shade nearby and need to shade your model between shots. The translucent screen is a diffuser, as opposed to a reflector, as it diffuses the light hitting your subject to avoid harsh shadows. A reflector can be used in two ways: When a reflector is used as a key light, or main light, it is the main source of light. In other words, the reflected light is what is lighting your subject. In this instance, it’s best used more or less opposite where the light is coming from. So, if you’re outdoors and using the sun as a backlight…Don’t be tempted to hold it below your model’s face when using a reflector as a key light. I know you’ll see a lot of You Tube videos advising you to do this, but this will give you what I call “monster lighting”. An extreme version of “monster lighting” is when you hold a torch under your chin – usually to scare somebody. With lighting we are always trying to replicate the way the sun lights our world. We are used to seeing light come from above – the sun never shines from below our chins. On the left, correct use of a reflector, which you can see from the catchlight in her eyes. On the right the reflector is too low, so the underside of her chin is lit up and her nose is casting a shadow up towards her eye – both are unflattering. If you are using the reflector to fill in the shadows, such as when the light source is positioned to the front and above a subject, then it’s fine to angle the reflector from below. In this instance it’s not the main light, so it is okay to fill shadows from below. If your subject is standing next to a window and there are dark shadows on the side of the face opposite the window.. The last point to remember on how to use a reflector is how close you hold it to your subject. The closer your reflector is to your subject, the stronger the reflected light will be. Because reflectors come in their own carry cases, with handles, they’re very easy to hook onto your camera bag. My bag lives on my back during a shoot if we’re constantly on the move, or if I’m not comfortable putting my gear down (wet ground) or turning my back on my gear (when there are people around). I may look like a pack mule and therefore not particularly cool, but it’s preferable to damaged or stolen gear. When walking about I’d rather have stuff on my back than have armloads of gear.
