I’ve written a review for Macworld on Adobe After Effects CS6 – this turned out to be my very first 5-mice rated product review I’ve written in the many years I’ve reviewed for Macworld!

I recently wrote a review for Macworld Magazine online, for Adobe After Effects CS5.

I want to thank all those attending my Motion Tracking with After Effects sessions at Adobe MAX 2009 this year. Since they’re Hands-On Lab sessions, the projects were pre-loaded on the machines in the room before you come in, and if you weren’t able to complete one of the projects during the session’s allotted time, […]

This was first demonstrated live at NAB this year and I’ve been waiting to post it on my Blog until after the release of the step-by-step tutorial was published on the ProVideo Coalition web site. Instead of trying to stabilize the footage first and then track it, I decided I wanted the bouncy/shaky camera movement […]

It’s finally here folks! My latest DVD from PhotoshopCAFE.com! Photoshop CS4 Video & Animation covers a lot of material that can all be done INSIDE Photoshop CS4 Extended. Techniques covered range from basic video editing and animation techniques, to rotoscoping, frame animation, video clean-up/retouching, masking, smart filters & FX, green screen compositing, 3D modeling and […]
