More Snaps from CS4 Live Tour & 64-bit Announcements

Hello, my friends! Today we’re in Århus, having just kicked off our CS4 Live seminar. As mentioned earlier, we’ve had capacity crowds in nearly every city, and the response to our integrated workflow (and the content we’re showcasing) has been universally well-received.
I’ve compiled another series of images from the last week or so (including some pics from yesterday’s show in Helsinki) so here they are. My favorite is actually the ‘taxi’ we took from Helsinki after the show. I think the picture speaks for itself…and gives new meaning to the idea of a touring ‘van’ (and if you’ve seen the seminar, think back to Rufus’ Rock Shack Van…LOL)

Some additional news was posted yesterday, as Adobe officially announced that future versions of Premiere Pro and After Effects will be native 64-bit applications (meaning the PProCS4/AECS4 are the last 32-bit versions we’ll be releasing). What does this mean to you? Well, it means great things for performance and workflow, and it also gives you food-for-thought when thinking about upgrading or moving to a new system (and as such, a new operation system, such as Snow Leopard or Vista64/Windows 7). For more information on the move to 64-bit, take a look HERE and HERE (for AE 64-bit news).

CS4 Live Tour Fills Theatres in the Nordics

Greetings, my friends! Writing you from the stage in Stockholm, as we’ve just kicked off our CS4 Live Tour seminar. It’s been a whirlwind week, beginning in Oslo on Monday (immediately following our departure from MAX-Los Angeles), Göteborg on Tuesday, Malmö on Wednesday and today in Stockholm. Great crowds, packed theatres, and incredible interest in cross-media workflow and Tips & Tricks from our favorite applications (which, as some of you may know, the attendees *voted* on the features they wanted to see ahead of time—very cool concept)

In any event, we’ve got Finland and Denmark coming up next week (along with some customer visits along the way) but in the meantime, I figured I’d post a few images from the tour so far. I can’t emphasize enough the ‘buzz’ that we’ve felt in each city–literally electrifying. So, a very humble thank you to all of the attendees thus far. It’s not easy to attend a 4-hour seminar at 8:30am…but you guys rocked it. It’s all about the Adobe user community—and it’s truly been our pleasure to present in your cities.

More Scenes from Masters Tour; AdobeMAX is here!

Hello, my friends! With AdobeMAX in full-swing, it’s been challenging to get a moment to sit down and blog…but in any case, here I am! Yesterday’s sessions were fab (including our ‘Evangelist Shootout’, starring yours truly, Rufus & Paul) and we sincerely appreciate all the great comments and ‘love’ shared by the attendees. It was a packed house, the audience went wild, and we genuinely enjoyed ourselves.
To *see* the shootout, click here.
Immediately following MAX, I’ll be heading up to SF to shoot another batch of episodes for Short & Suite on AdobeTV. Karl already filmed a bunch back in late August, so they should be online very soon. I’ll be covering some new/old features/workflows including MultiCam Editing in Premiere Pro CS4, live sound audio remixing (in Audition 3), Processing and Plugins in After Effects CS4 & Premiere Pro, and much more (assuming I can squeeze it all in!)
For your viewing pleasure, here are a few additional snaps from the previous Master’s Tour in Switzerland. I’ve presented the flyer, advertising the event (so groovy—beautifully designed) as well as some pics taken by our friend and colleague, Markus Dobbelfeld.

Until next time,
