EIGHT new tutorials, plus news this week! But, first, a caution.
Sometime in the next month or so, Apple will release macOS 11 - Big Sur. First unveiled at WWDC in June, this will be a major update. I STRONGLY recommend you NOT upgrade any computers that you use for client or deadline-driven work when this is initially released. Apple works hard to make every OS as perfect as possible. But operating systems are vastly complex and errors always appear. My general recommendation is to wait until a .1 release is available before upgrading any essential systems. Here's an article I wrote with more detail.
In the news:
released new versions of Premiere Pro
and After Effects
, with minor upgrades to several other apps. I have several articles that showcase what's new, along with a webinar
this Wednesday with highlights.
Symply released an upgraded version of the SymplyWORKSPACE, now with embedded axle ai 2020 media asset management, to enhance collaboration and provide more efficiency in media production. SymplyWORKSPACE is the first shared storage system using industry leading StorNext6 for high-speed collaboration over Thunderbolt3, supporting up to eight simultaneous, combined Mac or Windows clients and featuring advanced RAID protection for content safety.
The folks at WizCase recently published "The Ultimate Privacy Guide for Mac Users." While we like to think our systems are secure, the truth is that all internet connections make any operating system susceptible to security threats — including your Mac. There is good information here.
IPV, makers of media asset management software, released a series of four webinars on how to create video remotely in lockdown. "In this free webinar series, video industry giants from Sky, Sesame Workshop, WarnerMedia and Biola University discuss how they navigated lockdown and created amazing content under extraordinary conditions."

Journalism is facing a tough future. People love news, but revenue streams are drying up to pay for it. This was brought home, again, with an email announcing that Creative Planet Network (which includes Digital Media) and Government Video are merging with TV Technology. "All those resources you turned to at Creative Planet Network can now be found on TV Technology, the most trusted source of technology news and trends on media production."
