Adobe CS6 is Announced

April 12, 2012 — 2 Comments

Hey Everyone, the rush of prep for all things MediaMotion Ball combined with one last pre-NAB project that just took forever to complete…. has left me with precious little time to write up an extensive report in time for today’s big Adobe CS6 announcements. Of course I will have my own things to say about various features of this comprehensive suite in the future. Just can’t get it done before NAB.

Fortunately, some good friends have written up fantastic articles/created videos, etc. on the matter and I am recommending them to all of my readers/viewers.

I may add links to this post later as well so check back!

Motion details, my session and an EXCLUSIVE discount deal:

Note: The park in this video is one of my “creative spaces” I go to get out of the studio and regain focus. It’s generally very quiet and works wonders. What are some of your creative escapes? Leave a comment and let me know.

Motion 2011 and The Adobe Post Show are back-to-back conferences coming October 9-14. Both take place in Albuquerque.

Motion brings together the top creatives in the motion graphics, visual effects and animation industries to share what drives their creativity. The format is audience-interactive “TED Talks” style.

The Adobe Post Show immediately follows Motion. It features intermediate to advanced level training in the Adobe Production Premium applications. I am presenting a hands-on LAB session called “The Reel World: Final Cut Pro to Premiere Pro” amongst many other great sessions.

There is nothing else like Motion in our industry.

Exclusive Promo Codes
$100 off either Motion 2011 or The Adobe Post Show via promo code: REELmo11
$175 off the already-discounted price for both conferences via promo code: REELmoPS11

(the combo is the best deal as it nets you a $1200 value for just $874!)

Congratulations to Robert Sharp and the team at DigiEffects on this new category of service aimed at making the lives of motion graphics and video professionals just a little more convenient. There have been many times, when on deadline, I chose to miss activities so I could keep an eye on my renders. With a service like RenderMon, I could escape the suite once in awhile and still keep an eye on things while on the go.
