Six new articles and videos for you this week. While there's a bit of a Motion focus caused by our on-going webinar series, I also have tutorials about Adobe Media Encoder, Final Cut Pro X and 4K video editing without using a computer.

Thinking of Motion reminds me that we are approaching the end of our six-part series on Motion. This week, I show how Motion integrates with Final Cut Pro X. We start by creating some simple templates, then show how to create controllers in Motion that can be adjusted in Final Cut. When you think of it, virtually every effect in Final Cut began as a template in Motion. This session is a great way to take your knowledge of Motion and extend it into the power of Final Cut. Live event registration is FREE.

And, if you've missed one of our live episodes, we have special pricing on the entire Motion series in our store. Plus, last week's episode also includes FREE demo files - the same ones I used during my presentation.

Our industry is about to change - again. NAB is only five weeks away and I'll be there along with the Digital Production Buzz, creating 24 live shows over the four days of the show. If you want to know how our industry is changing, these interviews will get you off to a great start. Here's the website for all our live events: (By the way, we are in Booth SL12405 - South Lower Hall. Stop by and say hello!)

The Buzz had a great show last week on marketing, advertising and public relations. As Scott Page explained, we are moving away from social media into new territory for marketers. This show can get you pointed in the right direction to generate an audience for your next project. Here's the link.

Spring is on the way and I can't wait. Have a great week, talk with you next week. In the meantime, edit well.
