My Adobe MAX 2013 Session Outlines and Some Videos Too

Greetings all! I’ve been home less than 24-hours from MAX2013, and what can I say? It was an incredible event this year. And while I have a separate “MAX Wrap-Up” post planned, I wanted to first post a few things that I promised during my sessions.

Here’s a link to download the session outline from my class entitled, “Advanced Audio Techniques for Voice-Over Recording

This includes the images of the microphones mentioned during the class, as well as snaps of many sample external soundcard options, pre-amps, etc.

And the video itself (it’s about 1hr03minutes long):

Additionally, you can also grab the outline for my DSLR Editing for Photographers and Designers Class.

And the video too:

As mentioned during MAX, AdobeTV just published a three-part series I recently shot on DSLR Editing, which includes not only Premiere Pro, but Adobe Prelude CC and a section of DSLR Multicamera Editing, featuring the AMAZING new ‘audio sync’ feature, an exciting new addition to Premiere Pro CC. Those episodes are posted below (Parts 1-3)

Tomorrow I’ll be posting the additional classes, “Edit What You Want: Ingest and Selection with Adobe Prelude”, “Advanced Mixing Techniques” and “Encoding For Web and Tablets”.

Till then…

Blog on.

  1. Thank you Jason. Amazing amount interesting information here. I have had a very happy weekend viewing as much as possible. Looking forward to putting this new knowledge to good work. Next is to figure out the plan for Premiere, prelude and photoshop suite for cc. Using LR4 for now as my ingest and process tool and can see an amazing advantage with Prelude. Premiere Pro will be a big update from Essentials 11 so can’t wait. It was also the multicam video that really did it for me, especially , lots us now have the GoPro ,flip and DSLR’s big syncing time saver. Exciting future. Thanks again, now completely hooked

    1. Thanks, Charles! I had a feeling the Multicam episode would be a popular one…and the (audio sync) feature is really incredible. I’ve since used it on 4 similar mixed camera/mixed media projects and it’s been ace each time…and it’s SO fast synchronizing! I’m not even quite sure how we’re doing it so quickly, but I won’t complain! Keep me posted and stay tuned for more links to MAX vids in the next few days. All the best…–jl

  2. Hi Jason, I just checked out your Voice-Over Recording video to see if I could pick up a few tips as I’m recording eight personal stories for a CD next month. Your presentation was very entertaining : D And Wow, that Adobe Audition CC looks great “I want”.

    1. Thanks, Lilith! Hope you found some good info in there. The course description (via MAX) was heavily-weighted on hardware and ‘environment’ prep for good VO…and the last (third) was meant to be about the actual processing. Good luck with the new CD and keep me posted. Would love to hear it. Best. –jl

      1. Thank Jason. Will do. Admittedly, doing all the production as well, is some what daunting. Trying to take a pragmatic approach to avoid overwhelm. Definitely some good reminders in your presentation. Lilith

  3. Wow. How fortunate that you were able to post these videos. I’ll be re-watching!

    I thought you hit on basic sharpening and color grading video in one of them, but I’m reminded by your notes that the Lightroom features you demo’d are not applicable to video.

    I need to do some very basic brightening up of dimly lit green room footage.. possibly a little sharpening and bringing out brighter colors. Am I overlooking a session?

    What a wealth of material, regardless. Thanks!

    1. Hey Vicky. Keep in mind, you *can* still adjust exposure and vibrance manually (along with ‘auto toning’) from the Library/QuickDevelop module (beyond simply applying a preset). But yes, if sharpening/Noise Reduction and more advanced control is what you’re looking for, you’ll need to move over to PS-CC or PPRO for that. Keep in mind, however, TODAY in Photoshop CS6, while you don’t have access to Camera Raw for video, you *can* make the video layer a smart object and apply PS’s Sharpening (among other filters) non-destructively. But yeah…PS-CC and Camera Raw? Freakin AMAZING. I’ve been dreaming for it for a long time. Hope that helps! Best–jl
