FOUR new articles this week - and some new webinars - and an interesting video demo.

This week's webinar shifts over to the Adobe side of the field, where I show you how to repair and improve audio Using Adobe Audition. Audition is new to the Mac with the CS 5.5 release and it has a lot to recommend it - especially if you never got into Soundtrack. Join us this Wednesday to learn more.

Here's a list of all our January webinars. I hope to see you at one of them. Also, you can attend any of our webinars FREE by becoming a monthly subscriber. Click here to learn more!

Put Video Inside A Shape  

Creating effects for FCP X requires Motion 5.

This video demo shows you how to use Motion 5 to create a shape, then how to publish that effect to Final Cut Pro X to create the final effect.

From start to finish in five minutes.  Cool.

Using Activity Monitor

Activity Monitor is an unsung hero. It helps me figure out what's going on behind the scenes of my Mac.

Best of all, it is in every version of the OS, since about OS X 10.4.

This tutorial explains what it is, how to use it, and how to interpret the results.

I get a lot of questions about what's the best way to compress video for YouTube.

Recently, I rewrote an existing article to bring it up-to-date with FCP X and Compressor 4.

If you want to know how to make your YouTube videos look great, read this.
