New tutorials and a product review this week. First, though, the news.
I am speaking this week at the Creativity Conference 2021. This global meeting of minds explores the quintessential essence of creativity, with the goal of inspiring and re-invigorating creativity for all of us. I'm presenting "Visual Arts: Techniques of Visual Persuasion" this Saturday, Jan. 23 at 11 AM PST. Registration is FREE.
I'm also chairing the "Film, TV & Games" panel on Friday, Jan. 22, but a time and registration link is not yet live.
In other news, OWC announced or released a flock of new products at CES last week. For me, though, the biggest news was that OWC has acquired LumaForge, creator of the award-winning family of shared storage Jellyfish solutions and its support of the ultra-reliable video workflow server. I used LumaForge in creating my video training as well as at the Digital Production Buzz coverage of NAB.
In other CES news, OWC announced Envoy Pro FX - exceedingly fast, rugged, portable NVMe SSD, 6 port USB-C Travel Dock E, and a new Thunderbolt Dock. They also released the Envoy Pro Elektron NVMe SSD (more on this below).
In spite of the news coming out of CES, things seem a bit quiet on the media software front. I suspect this is due to developers working to support both Big Sur and the latest Apple M1 computers. Media apps have been especially impacted by these new systems and it's taking time for new versions to roll out.
