Adobe released their latest CS6 software yesterday -- and we released our latest training on Adobe Audition CS6 about two hours later.  If you are a subscriber log-in and check out all our latest  training.  

You'll notice we've added an entirely new section - Adobe CS6 - to our subscription area. Audition is only the start! I finished recording training covering the all new Adobe Prelude, which can be used for both Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro 7.  We plan to release this new Prelude training next week. Other Adobe titles are already in development.

If you want to stay current in our industry, now is a perfect time to subscribe -- or, if you prefer, purchase our latest Adobe Audition CS6 training.


Have you ever wanted to get storage vendors to pay attention to you?  Well, now we can. Thomas Coughlin runs a very well respected research and consulting firm (Coughlin & Associates). Every year, he hosts conferences for  storage manufacturers, and his summer event looks at the storage needs of the media and entertainment industry.

Tom has a short (six minute) survey that asks about how we are using storage, how much we need, and how fast our needs are growing. I encourage you to take the survey.

Tom writes:  "This survey is intended for media and entertainment professionals and is designed to determine the industry's digital storage needs and expectations for the capture and creation of raw content, editing and post production, distribution of content, digital archiving as well as digital conversion and preservation. The results of this survey will be used to create the Coughlin Associates report on Digital Storage for Professional Media and Entertainment. A summary of the survey results will be made available to survey participants who give us their email address at the end of the survey."

Take the survey here. This is for research, not sales.

This week, I have two new blogs for you.  Check them out below. And, as always, I look forward to your comments.

Keep Yourself Copyright Legal
Logo: Larry's Blog
You finish the project and deliver it to the client, only to have them screaming on the phone a few hours later.

Why? Because YouTube sent them a notice of potential copyright violation.  And it is totally in error!

This blog looks at whether you can use material that Apple ships with Final Cut Pro in your own projects, then at how YouTube treats royalty-free music.

This grew out of interviews and discussions on the whole issue of royalty-free. This is one blog you need to read.

Why We Created Closed Caption Training
Logo: Larry's Blog
Last week, we released a new version of my Final Cut Pro X video training which included closed captions.

This blog explains why we did it, and answers a reader who took me to task for charging for it.

This is an issue I could use your opinions on. Read my blog here.


Here are the top three most viewed articles on my website during the last week:

1. FCP X: Native vs. Optimize vs. Proxy Media

2. FCP 7: Compressing Video for YouTube

3. Picking the Right Version of ProRes
