This week is Adobe Week - well, more accurately, it was the week of Adobe MAX. This periodic Adobe event saw the announcement of new versions of Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver; along with ship dates for all their audio and video products - June 17.
But the BIG news was Adobe's decision to move to a subscription model for all their software. Now, personally, for my company, I like this idea. But, not everyone did; and the Internet was filled with lots of good discussion and a fair amount of hysteria.
So, this week, I have three blogs and one audio interview that will help you understand what's going on with Adobe so you can make up your own mind.
Plus, I have an ALL-NEW trouble-shooting guide for Premiere and Final Cut, along with "Ten Rules for Filmmaking" from Jacob Rosenberg
. The details, as usual, are below.
This Wednesday, I'm doing a webinar showcasing cool new plug-ins for Final Cut Pro X. During this one-hour session, I'll have time to cover about 15 of them.
Thanks to everyone that mailed in suggestions last week on plug-ins to cover. You can find the complete list here.
I decided to highlight some smaller companies that you may not have heard of, along with some cool new tools from some of the larger ones as well.

DIGITAL PRODUCTION BUZZ
FEATURED AUDIO INTERVIEW
Each week, I feature a different interview from the Digital Production Buzz
. This week, there was SO MUCH buzz about Adobe's subscription model that we invited Bill Roberts

If understanding what Adobe is doing is important to you, you need to listen to this interview.

"EDITING TRUTHS" WEEKLY WINNERS
I am having a great time reading all the entries in our "Editing Truths For Better Living" contest. These short aphorisms touch upon so many facets of editing for others.
It doesn't cost anything to enter, and, in fact, studies have shown that entering can actually make you feel better. Sharing the pain helps...

When I was a young editor I feared the rushed project with the unmovable deadline. As an older editor I no longer fear it - because of the certainty of that glorious, unmovable moment when all angst will come to an end.Charlie Doran
