My book continues to get great reviews! This week, Oliver Peters wrote: "I found that ["Techniques of Visual Persuasion"] is not only a good first read, but useful to have around for a quick reference, whether you are just entering the field or have been in the business for years." Maxim Jago called it: "A brilliant book."
This week's free webinar looks at audio editing and mixing using Adobe Audition. Whether you use Premiere or Final Cut, you can use Audition to improve the quality of your projects. This session provides an overview of the software.
Last week's webinar examined the new features in the 14.4 release of Adobe Premiere Pro. The good news is that there are a number of useful features. The bad news is that this release has a larger number of bugs than usual. This webinar shows what you need to know and, more importantly, what isn't working yet.

I have five new tutorials this week. My lead story is a bug-fix release from Apple to fix a variety of significant bugs in the 10.4.9 update to Final Cut, along with Motion and Compressor. Next are two excerpts from last week's Premiere webinar, looking at automatic scene detection and a new feature in HDR - the graphics white point. Next is an article that illustrates where Adobe stores preferences, presets and other work files.
Finally, as all of us struggle to keep moving forward in these very challenging times, I have an interview with Maury Rogow, CEO of the RIP Media Group, on a new way of repurposing older assets to assist smaller companies and non-profits. You'll find all the links below in the Articles section.
Finding reasons for hope today is not easy. Our industry is built on collaboration, teamwork, and reasonable budgets. Three things in short supply today. Still a key thought in Maury Rogow's interview was that media creators have always faced competitors who aim to be more creative, faster, lower-cost, and easier to work with. Our challenge, he said, is to rise above them. "We are creators, we must create." Not just our projects, but ourselves.
Stay healthy and stay hopeful. Until next Monday, edit well.
