August 15, 2016

It's the middle of the summer and I'm writing this from the road. Yup, I'm taking a short vacation to visit friends and family in Wisconsin. (As an aside, after living in LA for decades, I had forgotten what humidity feels like. Whew... I'm stunned by the vast quantities of green and growing plants, but the humidity makes me want to crawl back inside an air-conditioner.)

Anyway, it is a fun trip - especially because a granddaughter is involved.

So, this week's issue will be a bit short and next week I'm taking off entirely. The next newsletter I send out will be in two weeks. Didn't want you to worry when next week's issue doesn't show up.

I really had fun with last week's webinar on closed captions in Adobe Premiere Pro. I want to especially thank Charles Van Winkle, the Adobe lead developer for captions in Premiere for taking so much time to educate me on the process. If you've wondered about captions, be sure to watch this week's video below - it explains a lot about them. Then, stream or download the webinar for an in-depth look at how captions work inside Premiere.  I should mention that this title is a really good reason to join my video training library. For one low monthly price, you can instantly stream any of over 1,400 movies on both Apple and Adobe software. Become a member today.

On a different note, I've had a lot of folks asking why I'm writing so much about Adobe and so little about Final Cut Pro X. I still love Final Cut, but Apple hasn't updated it in a while because they are working on something big. So, the short answer is that I've run out of stuff to talk about. I've covered virtually every feature in the software either in an article, a webinar or part of my FCP X Complete training.

But don't worry, as soon as Apple updates Final Cut, I'm back to writing about it in-depth. For now, though Adobe is doing some really interesting things with Premiere that are worth looking at.

Enjoy your summer - school starts soon and fall isn't that far away. I'll be back in two weeks. In the meantime, edit well.

Use Closed Captions in Adobe Premiere Pro CC
Closed captions are intimidating! But, closed captions are also vital. The problem is that creating closed captions is not easy, even though captions are required for more and more media projects today.

Join me as I demystify working with closed captions inside Premiere Pro:

* Explain what closed captions are
* How to work with different caption files and formats
* How to modify existing captions
