For my students who’re color grading their footage using an external waveform monitor – Tektronix has just posted a Primer on Color grading theory and techniques.
AND, it’s my second favorite price- FREE!
Adobe® Creative Suite® CS6 Released May 7th, 2012
I just received this announcement. Not only are there links to purchase the software, but also some information on upgrade pricing and date limitations. Take a look!
NEWS: Adobe® Creative Suite® 6 is Now Shipping
All CS6 suites and individual tools are available immediately for Windows and Mac, with delivery via boxed shipment or instant download. Discounted upgrades are offered from earlier versions, including CS3 and CS4 until the end of the year.
One big change: Starting with CS6, upgrades are only available direct from Adobe in most major geographies.
The company has also released all CS6 free trials for download and installation. These trials are fully-functional and will work side-by-side with any previous version(s) of the Creative Suite, including CS5 and CS5.5. We’ve got a complete list of trial direct download links for easy access.
The CS6 Student & Teacher Editions are now shipping as well. These offer up to 80% off the regular prices for education customers including students, teachers, and staff.

FINALLY! Premiere’s gettin’ it’s Props! March 18th, 2012
When Final Cut Pro X came out, these guys did the MOST amusing job of dissin it, EVER! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxKYuF9pENQ ) and rightfully so, if you’re a professional editor!
Well, these same guys have finally come around to see that Premiere Pro IS actually a PRO program! Check out their video at the link below – and don’t forget to contact me, if you need any Premiere Pro training!
Apple Releases Final Cut “Pro” X – update 10.0.1 September 20th, 2011
So, looks like Apple’s doing a bit of work on FCP X, but to me it doesn’t look like they managed to address any of the “Pro” deficiencies (see the “What’s New” section) What do you think?
Adobe Premiere’s Now a very Viable Alternative to FCPX July 14th, 2011
Another CreativeCow.com article – well-written. I’ve been saying for a while that Premiere is no longer the “red-headed stepchild” of editing software, and I’ve been teaching it for a while now. I’m finding quite a few people switching, and this article, by a long-time user of Final Cut Studio for some time, will help explain why.
Yeah – it’s not perfect – but with no access to FCP Studio 3 anymore – and having this come with the Adobe CS5.5 Suite – it sure can work! This also compares Premiere (in part) to Avid.
