Cool news! Pearson, the publisher of my book "Techniques of Visual Persuasion," has invited me to give a four-hour training session on using visual persuasion to improve presentations. This course is available from Safari Books Online (not the same as the web browser). The presentation starts at 10:00 AM PDT, May 27. NOTE: This requires an O'Reilly membership - BUT a 10-day free trial is available. It promises to be interesting! Sign up for a free trial and join us!!
Last week's webinar: "Clip Speed Changes in Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro," covered constant and variable speed changes, still frames, speed effects and more. What I did was take the live presentation and split it in half - Webinar 314 covers Adobe, while Webinar 315 covers Apple. Even better, I cut the price in half for each presentation - pick the one you want and save money!
No webinar this week as I prep for this week's Safari Online training. NEXT week, though, my webinar looks at "Image Editing and Repair using Adobe Photoshop." So many of our projects require stills - either old or new - that it's worthwhile taking time to learn how to use Photoshop to make our stills look great. As always, registration for my live events is free.

I found myself this last week looking at different ways to change the speed of a clip. I have multiple tutorials covering fit-to-fill edits and extreme slow motion in Premiere, fit-to-fill edits and visual effects in Final Cut - all in the Tutorials & Review section below.
Here in California we are quickly coming out of the pandemic, a situation that is happily occurring elsewhere in the US; though certainly not throughout the world. It is easy to pretend this pandemic never happened and try to go back to the "way things used to be." That's a mistake - we can't go back. We can only go forward - and discover what the latest version of "real-life" is going to look like. It won't be the same - hopefully, it will be better.
Stay safe, stay healthy and, especially, stay hopeful. Until next Monday, edit well.
