We are continuing to add to our online Adobe CS6 Training. All our Prelude CS6 training is now part of our subscription membership - along with last week's webinar introducing both Adobe Story and Adobe Prelude.

There's never been a better time to subscribe - and, when you buy an annual membership, you save almost 20%!

Our latest webinar - Introducing Adobe Story and Adobe Prelude - is also available in our store. This
video tutorial is a great way to discover how to use these powerful new pieces of software; in one, quick, easy lesson.

Also, for those that need their training to travel with them, both our Adobe Prelude and Adobe Audition training series are available for download.


We have three new articles and one new blog for you this week - all the details are below. Whether you are interested in Premiere, Motion, Audition, or just checking in on our NAB postmortem, these are some great articles.


If you are thinking about switching to Premiere Pro CS6, you need to join us for this week's webinar. We'll look at the integration of Story and Prelude with Premiere.  We'll also look at Premiere's new interface, workflow, and editing and trimming tools.

Plus, like all our webinars, there is plenty of time to get your questions answered.

Remember - subscribers can attend any live webinar for FREE.  Paying attendees get a FREE download of the session.  Either way, you win.


If you live in Southern California, join me at LAFCPUG this Wednesday night. In addition to "Stump the Gurus," I'll show you how you can use Adobe Audition with Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X, and Premiere Pro CS6.  If audio is important to you, plan to join me Wednesday night. If you can't make it, check out my Audition blog, or my Audition training.


Now its time for this week's articles.  One on Premiere Pro, one on Motion, one on Audition, and one with a post-NAB wrap-up of what worked and what didn't as we covered NAB for the Digital Production Buzz.

Adobe Audition CS6

Last week, we took a look at Adobe Prelude CS6. This week, we take a detailed look at Adobe Audition CS6.

If you are mourning the loss of Soundtrack Pro, Audition is fully able to pick up the slack. From audio recording and editing, to repair and mixing, Audition has now become my audio tool of choice.

Trashing Adobe Premiere Pro Preferences

Adobe makes resetting your Premiere Pro system easy -- provided you know the secret handshake.

Well, I do - and here it is. 

Read my technique here.

Get Audio to Make Your Video Do Tricks

This is a totally cool - and COMPLETELY unobvious - Motion technique that allows audio to animate video.

For instance, you can get the beats of the music to get your video to pulse, or change color, or jump around the screen.

What to know how? This technique shows you the secret.

What We Learned Covering NAB 2012

I first wrote about how the Digital Production Buzz would be covering the 2012 NAB Show in early April.

Now that the show is over, I wanted to write a follow-up to explain what we learned, what worked, what didn't, and what we'll do differently next year.

Think of this as a production postmortem.
