Adobe Creative CloudDespite the controversy surrounding Adobe’s switch to a subscription-based model, its Creative Cloud line of products has seen several useful updates for users. For instance, Adobe has added native RED DRAGON & CinemaDNG RAW support via GPU acceleration, plus improved round-tripping with its color correction software SpeedGrade. This year at NAB, Adobe pushed forward with the addition of some newly native abilities, in addition to the dynamic linking its suite is already known for (i.e., no switch from PP to AE needed for certain effects, and vice-versa). Check below for our NAB 2014 interview with Adobe and a video recap of the newest iteration of CC features. More »

The tutorial below will lead you through the process of tracking a logo, making it disappear, and then even putting in a brand new logo in its place. More »

Adobe Premiere Pro CC October 2013 UpdateSince Adobe announced their new suite of programs, CC, as subscription-only, there have been plenty complaints about being forced to pay indefinitely for software that was previously able to be owned outright. While they haven’t done anything drastic with the subscription implementation since launch, they have kept their promise of releasing significant updates for the software much faster and more fully-featured. The first update came in July, and now the second major release includes updates for Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, SpeedGrade CC, Prelude CC, Adobe Media Encoder CC, and Adobe Story, as well as a completely new iPad app called Prelude Live Logger. The Adobe CC suite is getting tons of native codec support and better roundtripping between Premiere and SpeedGrade, but check out the videos below to learn more about the new features in the update planned for October 2013.

Video thumbnail for vimeo video Adobe Premiere Update - nofilmschoolOne of the chief criticisms of the new Adobe CC suite is that you are constantly paying for the software, and at some point, if you decide you don’t want to pay for it anymore, you won’t have access to your work until you pay again. While Adobe has said they are looking into ways to improve the situation, one of the reasons they have said for doing this is that they are able to improve the software much more frequently. It looks like they are making good on that with the release of the first major update for Adobe Premiere Pro CC less than one month after it was released. More »

Screen shot 2013-06-20 at 11.07.00 PMAudio post-production can be a major pain for those of us who don’t have (can’t afford) a proper audio post team. Luckily for us, high-end tools have never been easier to use or more affordable. One of my favorite tools for the past year has been Adobe’s revamped version of Audition. The ability to seamlessly roundtrip audio clips between Premiere and Audition made the choice all that much easier. Now with Adobe’s latest offering in the audio production field, Audition CC, fixing problematic audio should be as simple a process as ever. More »

Adobe Creative CloudAdobe CC, the new Creative Cloud only suite that is replacing CS6, should be launching at some point tonight.

Dual AMD FirePro GPUs Apple New Mac ProWhile on the surface it might seem like Apple is making a huge mistake not at least offering NVIDIA on their new system, it looks look those dual AMD workstation FirePro GPUs have a few tricks up their sleeve, especially as it relates to OpenCL support on both Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve 10 and Adobe’s new CC software suite. Both are major players right now in the video space, and there will be some serious hardware acceleration thanks to these processors. More »
