How to upgrade your Adobe Creative Cloud CS6 apps to Adobe CC

Adobe Creative Cloud CC is finally here, and in this video I will show how you can upgrade from Adobe Creative Cloud CS6 to Adobe CC.

This way you can have access to the CC version (a.k.a. CS 7.0) of your favourite Adobe applications: Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, After Effects, Speed Grade, Audition, Illustrator, and also Adobe Lightroom 5.0

StudioJPIC BTS Workflow from pre-production, to principal photography, to post-production

In this video, I show how I do most of the videos on this channel. From pre-production, to principal photography, to post-production, I show you how I set up my environment, film the video, and then edit it.

For the post-processing, I use Adobe Premiere Pro for the editing, and Adobe Audition for improving the audio.

I will add links throughout this video to more of my videos on each subject or piece of equipment mentioned.

Processing a Timescape video taken from RAW images using Adobe AE and Premiere Pro CS6

In this video, I show how I create my timescape videos (timelapse + landscape = timescape) from RAW images using Adobe After Effects to do the colour correction, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. This is the simplest workflow I could find.

NOTE: I hear that Adobe CC CS7.0 will improve the processing speed of ATI cards, looking forward to that upgrade!

RAW images are a bit more work than working from .jpeg, but they offer you more flexibility in post-production. I’ll do another video to cover the RAW vs JPEG advantages and disadvantages.
