Adobe Creative Suite 3 – World Exclusive Preview!

Adobe Creative Suite 3 world exclusive preview by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

Those of you who read my blog will know that at the end of January, I spent half a day at an exclusive press event (and a further half day at a follow up event a couple of weeks ago). Since both events were under Non Disclosure Agreement, I was unable to say anything more until now…when I can exclusively reveal that they were previews of Adobe’s Creative Suite 3, which will be formerly announced today.

Just One Announcement

MC rebbe The Rapping Rabbi writes about Red One digital cinema camera in The TechnofileEvery April, NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) takes place in Las Vegas (where else). Usually this is the place where major manufacturers make major announcements about major new products, but this year, such announcements were pretty thin on the ground.

JVC announced a pair of Pro HDV cameras, with interchangeable lenses, which look interesting, if a little (i.e. very) overpriced, Panasonic released…a DV camera (huh?), Canon released…a lens (big wow) and Sony released…nothing.

As it turns out, Sony might, unintentionally, have made the best move of all, because no matter what was announced, it would inevitably have been completely overshadowed by ‘Red’. Continue reading “Just One Announcement”

Adobe Video Collection Professional 2.5

Adobe Video Collection Professional 2.5 reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

Once upon a time, when it came to computer based video editing, there were two choices…Avid, which, at a cost of tens of thousands, was strictly high end… and Adobe Premiere, which, at a cost of hundreds, was still high end…but was the relatively affordable alternative. Then a bunch of young upstarts called Macromedia (yes, that Macromedia) developed a product that combined the video editing facilities of Premiere, with the comping abilities of Adobe’s other key video package, ‘After Effects’ and amidst rumours and speculation of a Premiere/After Effects killer, released it to critical acclaim…well not quite…actually, they sold it to Apple…who released it to critical acclaim, as ‘Final Cut Pro’….and subsequently Final Cut Express…closely followed by Avid Express DV and a bunch of other video editing apps.
