Looking at what your options are for CS4?

Of course there is the Adobe Store and it’s very comprehensive and built around a Flex/Flash interface.

However, the people over at have come up with a comprehensive upgrade matrix as well.  In addition to being a great dealer of all things plugins, they work hard at providing excellent service and sales to the most important products to the creative person. 

So, if you want to look at what your upgrade options are for Adobe’s CS4, I hope you’ll take a look at Toolfarm’s Upgrade Matrix

MTV’s Engine Room

MTV is one of those brands that screams, “I use After Effects!”  As for me, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Engine Room is like a version of the Iron Chef for Creatives.  It’s available on MTVU and online

Want your first peek at CS4 Production Premium? Today’s the day!

Talk about no notice, I know!  However, between the schedule of Adobe and of course keeping a number of things quiet on the CS4 front, I saved posting about an eSeminar that I am doing today until…today…

The crowd roars for CS4

The live announcement and presentation of Creative Suite 4 is tomorrow and I’ve had a blast telling people about it, responding to comments on another blog entry and of course talking to customers.

AJA + Adobe = great high-end workflows

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have the privilege of getting to work with high-end workflows all of the time.  I go from everything to DV to Film 4K and everything in between, but clearly SD and compressed HD workflows predominate what we do. However, I have to say that I’ve been really intruiged with what AJA offers for Adobe products – all that you would expect and a whole bunch extra.  Read on to get all the details.

After Effects Expressions resource

As I’ve said to co-workers, After Effects expressions is always one of my New Year’s resolutions.  I grab bits and pieces along the year and am very slowly building up a little knowledge about what is possible with expressions.

Corporate culture via John via Chuck

Sadly, this is a post that few people will actually take the time to read but is valuable nonetheless.  Maybe I should put a title of "CS4 ships!"  Nah…

John Dowell blogged this morning on corporate culture as a prediction of where a company is going and throughout it, it in turn quotes from a Wharton interview with Chuck Geschke – one of the founders of Adobe Systems.

I think John did a great job with this lengthy blog post and I would encourage you to read it.  It correctly captures the spirit of Adobe and one of the reasons why I feel so strongly about why Adobe is where it is and why we will continue to be successful with you (our customers) in the future.


Adobe, RED and Assimilate

Just a quick hit on the deluge of information coming from IBC.  This is an end-to-end workflow from capture to finish.  It’s continuing good news for digital film.

RED native workflows

And a quick update for you – Here’s the first RED film that’s been finished by Premiere Pro.  Very cool!  Fatal Flaw

CS4 buzz coming from IBC

Another run and gun post….Adobe is having a busy IBC which is the European version of NAB.  We’re showing a lot of new technology at the show and I imagine you’ll be getting some good chatter on creative portals like Creative Cow and DMN

Here’s an intruiging Adobe press release – all the tantalizing hints and no super substance.  Sorry, but that’s what a press release is all about. 😉
