In this brief video I showcase the “virtual trackballs” in SpeedGrade CS6. What this feature does, is gives a colorist part of the power of a full on control surface, without the expense of one. Now, of course SpeedGrade supports actual control surfaces, but for the occasional color corrector, or anyone on a budget, this feature takes some of the pain out of adjusting the color wheels.
Well the news from IBC has started to roll out, and the first thing that I’ve seen that has really shown promise of being a game changer: Adobe Anywhere. The premise is fairly simple, you have a server computer that hosts your media. You log into your Adobe Anywhere account and instantly you have access to your material on your server computer or any storage that it is attached to. The media can be in the next room or thousands of miles away, and in theory, it doesn’t matter. You can work with full resolution HD material, wherever and whenever you please. The amazing thing is that you can access all of this media from Adobe’s big three video apps, Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Prelude.
