MAKING THE SWITCH - From Apple to Adobe via a Windows 7 PC By Jeremiah Hall I don't upgrade at the drop of a hat. I only do it when I need to. So as I was saving my pennies to purchase a new Mac Pro (the G5 getting long in the tooth), Apple dropped a bomb - Final Cut X. I was excited... until it came out. I discovered that two of the things that I do with with Final Cut Studio, namely importing Photoshop layers and the wonder that was DVD Studio Pro, were no more. ...Read More »

By Douglas Spotted Eagle Here's a list of my most wished for tools, aids, and geegaws to make my editing world a little better, easier, or more fun...I gave one to my spouse, perhaps you'll just want to print this off and give it to them as a one-stop wish list.

The Case For The Defense By Rick Monro You may not be too surprised to hear a designer jump to the defense of designers and the role they play. However, this little narrative has not been inspired by the instinct for the self-preservation of my industry, but rather by a blown gasket. A blown top. You see, someone said it again.
