I'm restarting my webinars this week and you are invited to join in!  However, I'm changing these a bit. For now, I'm only going to create about two a month; coming up with new ideas every week was exhausting.

Second, I've moved back to using GoToWebinar, which means there's a limit of 100 attendees per event. And, finally, to make sure I've ironed the bugs out, there's only one presentation - at 9:00 AM this Wednesday Los Angeles time.

My topic is "Blend Modes in Photoshop, Premiere and Final Cut Pro X." Blend modes are a fun way to share textures between images and text. This session will explain what they are and how to use them in a variety of applications. Join the live session and you'll be able to ask questions. Or, if you can't join live, you'll be able to view this later in the week in my Video Training Library or in my Store.

I have four new articles for you this week - including a true story that taught me a big lesson about how much I didn't know - along with articles on Final Cut Pro, Audition, Compressor, Adobe Media Encoder and... Soundtrack Pro!

We have a lot of cool stuff planned for the next few months and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you. In the meantime, I'll see you this Wednesday at a brand-new Webinar.

 As always, stay tuned. Chat with you next week.

Last week on The Buzz, James DeRuvo interviewed Stu Maschwitz, the co-founder of The Orphanage on creating visual effects and his new book: "The DV Rebel's Guide: An All-Digital Approach to Making Killer Action Movies on the Cheap."
