For those in the US, I hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving holiday. For everyone else, I hope you got some rest over the weekend. I have four new articles for you this week, but, first, the news.

The big news this week, aside from all the Black Friday sales - which seem to extend far past a single day - was Red Giant announcing "Red Giant Complete."  Designed for individuals, students and teachers, Red Giant Complete is the complete set of tools from Red Giant at an affordable annual subscription price. Red Giant Complete provides access to all their most up-to-date tools while saving thousands of dollars over traditional perpetual licensing.

Thinking of other new things, the latest collection of The Inside Tips premieres this week: Visual Effects. These Tips are focused on visual effects for everything from simple chroma-keys to hidden tricks in 3rd-party effects software. New tips are released every Wednesday. This makes eight separate Tip Letters we publish each week! Every newsletter is free and contains a minimum of three tips. Learn more and sign up here:

Not surprisingly, I find myself doing a lot of writing these days. Cranking out 24 new tips a week gives me a chance to learn a lot more about the software I write about. One of the things I'm always grateful for are people asking questions, because, often, that triggers an idea for something to write about for a newsletter. That was the case this week, as I found myself thinking about RAM and audio.

Some of my most popular articles are about configuring specific computers for video editing. And a very common question is: " How much RAM should I buy?" You won't be surprised when I tell you that the answer "depends." But, this week, I decided to investigate more specifically on what RAM actually depends upon. That's my lead story.

Then, I found myself thinking about audio. I created three articles: one on the difference between creating audio tracks for motion graphics vs. a video edit. Then two others on working with multi-channel audio in Final Cut and Premiere.

Personally, I think all of these are pretty interesting. That's it for this week. Please sign up for The Inside Tips - you'll like it. I look forward to chatting next Monday. In the meantime, edit well !
