The Show Must Go On

Contrary to what has been reported in some national mainstream media outlets, interference from a cell phone did not cause the problems with the projection system at last week’s Creative Suite 3 Launch Event.

It was caused by problems with the gear you see in the photo above. Or the people running said gear. But it was definitely not a cell phone. Yes, we were cracking jokes onstage that it was a cell phone, but I wasn’t expecting to be taken seriously about it! I guess I need to be more careful next time.

Also, there were speculations in at least one article that I was using one of the yet-to-be-released 8-core Mac Pro systems. I could only wish! In fact, I had a 2x266GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon with 10GB RAM. One 7200 RPM SATA drive for the OS & apps, another for the project files & assets. A rocking system, yes, but no 8-core. After Effects, for example, can take advantage of all them processors, so I can’t wait to get my hands on one of those 8-core machines.

I’ll be unleashing a torrent of CS3 new feature info starting later today, so hang on to your hats.

  2. The “Rooster” lives! A co worker sent me a link to your blog and I was like. . . .”I know that dude”! How is the “Monkey” doing? BTW. . . .next time you need to do a large IMAG event let me know, and you should use a Tricaster Pro. They are designed for just that use!
