Get ready to raise the roof as we welcome renowned producer/composer, mixer, label manager, animator and fellow Twitch streamer, Dj CUTMAN to the Adobe Twitch Channel! Over three days, CUTMAN will bring his unique talents to our studios in San Francisco to create an amalgamation of sound and vision that will delight the Twitch audience and inspire new ways of synchronizing and presenting music & imagery using Adobe video tools.

The online workshop will be streamed live on Twitch and will give you the unique chance to interact with Dj CUTMAN, see his creation process, and ask him questions.

July 19: Animated Album Art – Part 1

Let there be tunes; let there be 8-bit music. 🙂 Day one of CUTMAN’s stream will be about laying down the foundations for the piece, starting with music selection and creation, implementing some 3rd party audio tools. He’ll begin the image layout process, working in After Effects and Photoshop, touching upon some of the ways he approaches sync-for-visuals when it comes to beat-based music.

July 20: Animated Album Art – Part 2

Now you see it; now you feel it. Day two will focus on refining timings, audio interactivity and adding expressions in After Effects, set to a musical soundtrack. Instrumentation controls the animation; watch and learn how this technique really resonates with viewers, grabs attention and excites an audience.
