(June 09, 2014)
DMN Newswire--2014-6-9-- The Editors? Lounge hosted their May event where production and post-production professionals were given the opportunity to get an up close look at the latest editing tools in Adobe® After Effects® CC and Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC that are part of the 150 brand-new features available in Adobe Creative Cloud® tools. One lucky raffle winner received a year?s subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud®. The new Lumberjack System was also unveiled with valuable cost and time saving features for editors. Each month the Editors? Lounge hosts this free educational event at AlphaDogs Post Production in Burbank, CA in a hands-on seminar style.


The evening kicked off with networking and a light dinner compliments of the Editors? Lounge. Demonstrations that were 45 minutes in duration were split among three rooms set up theatre style, giving attendees the opportunity to see all of the presentations given throughout the evening.

·      Live text templates created in Adobe After Effects CC editable in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

·      Compositing options for each effect, including ability to confine the area affected by each effect with masks.

·      Import of masks from Adobe Premiere Pro CC


Sebastian Distefano, strategic development manager at Adobe showed the ease of  syncing settings and shortcuts that allow for faster and more fluid video editing from any edit bay in the world.  New updates demonstrated included:


·      Live text templates

·      Masking and tracking directly in Premiere Pro to quickly blur out faces or license plates

Philip Hodgetts showcased the new Lumberjack System, a muscular, real-time logging and pre-edit system for Final Cut Pro X  10.1.  It was shown how simple actions on a shoot could save days in post-production.  Key cost and time saving features include:


·      Capturing at the source with push button ease

·      Consistent keyword logging

·      Keywords that are field updateable & can be back-timed

·      Logging process that begins on-location as it happens


Lumberjack System not only aligns the real-time logs with the media in Keyword Collection, but also optionally creates select string-outs based on keywords, activity or person.  A small investment during the shoot that pays off big time in post, whether it?s non-scripted productions, sports events, conferences, or other situations where real-time capture of metadata is valuable.


The next Editors? Lounge will be held on Friday, June 27, 2014.  For more details visit
