DV / After Effects Abuser Group - "Pushing Pixels Beyond . . ."


The After Effects Abuser Group will be having our first meeting of the year on March 13th, the second Wednesday. Our regularly scheduled February meeting postponed due to a tenant/friend's passing. We are refurbishing the room, which is turning out to be a big job, and so are moving the date to March.
Terry Syndergaard's presentation will focus on recent Premiere Pro editing tips and multicam time-saving techniques discovered while creating Music Videos for So Cal Blues bands. While many of these tips wil be old hat to old pros, it took Terry a while to figure them out. Your mileage may vary.
Free Tip: Simplified sync of multiple cameras - start from the end. Many times all cameras do not start at the same time, or one will miss the opening entirely - but unless a battery failed, they almost always include the ending, that final drum bashing that is quite easy to sync up. And don’t worry – Premiere Pro does a great job of auto-sync.
We will update details in a future announcement for our March 13th meeting.
Terry & Bonnie,
Adobe After Effects Abuser Group Managers

Pros who want to expand and exchange ideas and newbies who want to add production value to their videos will find a gathering of people who love visual effects - pushing pixels to go beyond - a club for adventurous explorers — kinda like a treehouse, but with computers.

The Digital Video / After Effects Abuser Group has presentations on video editing and special effects software, including, but not limited to, Adobe After Effects, Premiere, & Final Cut Pro. Terry Syndergaard is the Manager, Bonnie Erdrich, co-manager.

Meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of most months. The fee for non-OCMMA members is $10, or $5 for students.
