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…

Day 3 NAB – The Buzz Continues!

Just a quickie following another packed day on the show floor. Hard to believe that it’s all over tomorrow, but in many ways…it’s just beginning (wink)!

This is pretty much what it's looked like the whole time. Uncropped pano from my Creative Cloud preso

As day 3 is typically ‘hump day’ and many begin to exit Vegas in droves, we were somewhat a-stereotypically slammed! And, as if the huge crowds weren’t enough…we even continued to have several noise complaints from neighboring booths (sorry guys…we didn’t mean to be loud). But hopefully some of the traffic that was blocking the aisles made their way to our friends along the perimeter.

Aside from the After Effects/C4D integration, Refine Edge Tool/Refine Soft Matte and naturally, *all* of the Premiere Pro editing enhancements (which have been met with spontaneous applause, nearly every time), the other big hit of the show has been SpeedGrade. The talk around SG has really grown over the last year…but with some of our new shot-matching capabilities and redesigned UI, along with the Lumetri Deep Color Engine and LUT capabilities being present in the ‘revealed’ version of Premiere Pro, I sense a lot of people moving to SpeedGrade not only as a solution for grading their materials, but for creating LUTs and color presets to use in and out of Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop. Case in point: as I walked by the RED booth today, I saw a demo being given to a packed house, showcasing Epic 5K footage being graded in SpeedGrade (showcasing several of the new features). Beyond cool, and what a slick confirmation that the word is out!

One day and four more presentations to go. What a week it’s been…

A Big Day at NAB

From Where I Stood - the crowd at NAB2013 for my After Effects presentation
From Where I Stood – the crowd at NAB2013 for my After Effects presentation

What can I say? The Big Reveal was a HUGE success! Today at NAB, we revealed ‘What’s New’ (or rather, what’s coming in the next versions of) After Effects, Premiere Pro, Audition, Prelude, SpeedGrade and the official launch of another product I was involved with back in August/September, Adobe Anywhere.

The buzz, the excitement, the packed booth…it was madness, but in a good way. We were literally jam packed/standing-room-only for the better part of 8 hours, with not only our own Adobe presentations, but with those from our esteemed customers who graciously joined us to show their Adobe magic with their own content and workflow tricks.

After half-a-dozen presentations, I left the show floor tired but inspired by what had just happened, and all I can say is: thank you. Thank you to the thousands of customers who came out to see us, shake a hand, give us your feedback, snap some pics and share in the excitement. The pleasure is truly ours, the journey has only just begun and we’re here, listening…always.

Day 2 is mere hours away!

NAB 2013 and the Big Reveal

Greetings from Las Vegas! If you haven’t heard by now, this past Thursday we REVEALED what’s coming next in the Adobe video products. Over the last few days, the tweets/FB posts and forum talk has been so overwhelmingly positive, inspiring and all-out cool that I simply can’t wait to hit the stage on Monday and start revealing more, in person (software I mean; don’t get any ideas ;P)

In any case, if you’re in Vegas attending NAB this year, you’ll definitely want to come by the booth this week. Not only will I be presenting anywhere from 5-7 times a day, but my former US-based Evangelist colleague Karl Soule will be joining me as well (he’s now based in Singapore) along with a host of exciting, inspiring customer presentations. We even managed to get my dear friend and brilliant editor/director/audio guru & VFX wizard Vashi Nedomansky up on stage. He’ll be presenting Monday & Tuesday, showcasing some of his work and his real-world workflows using Premiere, AE and more. You definitely want to check him out.

Oh, and while you don’t see *me* on the reveal page (I was on-tour when those vids needed to be filmed), I have a whole bunch of videos which will start to make their way out to web in the coming weeks…so stay tuned.

3300+ CreateNow Attendees Can’t Be Wrong! (an Elvis reference)

The word is definitely out; and while the word (according to Beatles legend) is love (and they’re right, it is), the *other* word is Creative Cloud; and our Adobe friends in Europe clearly love it.

Following the successful shows in Warsaw and Oslo, the excitement and enthusiasm continued as we made our way thru London, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki. What was most interesting to us was the universal acceptance of the Creative Cloud and a genuine interest in how it differs from the (previous) ‘boxed product’ experience. Fortunately, we came armed and ready with all the details about the new applications, features and services that we’ve added to the Creative Cloud (since our official launch last May) and that momentum continued as we were able to showcase several new PS features (as of February) and most recently, the addition of Photoshop Touch on the iPhone and Android mobile devices.

A sincere thanks must go out to all of the attendees across the globe, as well as our many colleagues who helped put these incredible events together. This tour really exceeded our expectations, and we’re just so very honored to be able to bring all of these incredible, creative puzzle pieces, all together under one roof. The show continued on (back in the US) in New York, Boston, Seattle, Austin and San Diego with more stops coming! Create now!

On our one day off (in Oslo) we took in some sightseeing...and ice.

Ask A Pro Friday session: Get Started Creating Video with Adobe Creative Cloud

This Friday I’ll be hosting yet another Ask A Pro session, this time dealing with the basics of getting started with video using Adobe Creative Cloud.

You can register for the online event HERE.
AAP Banner
This session is meant to be for beginners who have not used the video products before, and who are looking to enhance their skills, going beyond the video capabilities found in Photoshop and/or Lightroom.

I’ll begin with a brief overview of how to use Adobe Creative Cloud, and from there I’ll dive right into asset review, ingest and basic rough cutting (with Adobe Prelude); sending media to Adobe Premiere Pro for more editing capabilities, sound mixing, and working with basic effects, and the final section will deal with delivering your video to any device/tablet/screen with Adobe Media Encoder.

Register NOW! Hope to see you there.
