Lion: Flash video acceleration works just fine

Flash PM Rob Christensen clarifies:

The final release of Mac OS X Lion (10.7) provides the same support for Flash hardware video acceleration as Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6).  The previous “Known Issue” described in a tech note suggesting that video hardware acceleration was disabled in Lion was incorrect and based on tests with a pre-release version of Mac OS X Lion that related to only one particular Mac GPU configuration.  We continue to work closely with Apple to provide Flash Player users with a high quality experience on Mac computers.

Experience “Photoshop & You” in San Francisco

Laser etching!
Giant posters!
T-shirt making!
Dogs & cats living together, mass hysteria!

Starting this Saturday & running through August 6, the Photoshop team will be in Union Square, taking over 550 Sutter Street in SF to conduct hands-on training & demos–and it’s all for a good cause.

Luminaries like Russell Brown, Scott Kelby, and others will be on hand to teach & consult.  The days are jammed, so check out the full range of events and register for what are going to be popular events.  (Russell’s laser-shirt-printing-lab-thing accepts 5 registrations per hour.)  Many engineers & other team members will be dropping in, and they write,

We’ll also have some cool Photoshop gear for sale, as well as a special 15% discount off regularly priced Adobe software. The best part? The net proceeds from the sale of Photoshop gear will go directly to Adobe Youth Voices (AYV).

Hope to see you there,

Oil Painting, upside down

Mark Barbieri captured rollercoaster video using a GoPro camera, then ran Photoshop’s Pixel Bender Oil Painting filter on the clip. “The idea,” he writes, “is that as we ride through the launch building, we transition from the real world to a fantasy world.” I like it.

Tangential: He used the After Effects Warp Stabilizer on a clip from the same ride, though not on the one above. “For reasonably stable video with an annoying amount of wandering,” he writes, “I’ve found it to be miraculous. It was worth the price of the upgrade to CS5.5 by itself.”

More Photoshop-as-Instagram

Abduzeedo shares tips on replicating Instagram’s Nashville color effect via Photoshop. (Seems like it’s kind of begging to be turned into an action.) Previously: Instagram filters as PS actions.

Tangentially related: A band called The Vaccines is planning to use Instagram to create a crowd-sourced music video. [Via]
