Adobe has certainly been busy over the past few months and I must say I’m one of those switchers that moved from Apple’s FCP7 (FCPX) to Adobe Premiere CS6 and the Creative Cloud for numerous reasons. Their commitment to the industry is undeniable and here with this document the continue to demonstrate their commitment to the education of the masses and insuring it’s not just about selling a piece of software.

Optimizing Hardware Systems for
Adobe® Premiere® Pro CS6, A!er E“ects® CS6,
SpeedGrade™ CS6, and Photoshop® Extended CS6
The artist’s guide to configuring or upgrading a computer to get the most out of these
cornerstone video software applications.
Today’s digital video and cinema content creators demand more performance from their systems#
especially as they take on an ever-widening array of jobs at ever-larger media sizes. However, not all
editors, colorists, and graphic artists are also computer hardware specialists. This document will discuss
how you#a user of Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, After Effects CS6, SpeedGrade CS6, and Photoshop
Extended CS6 software#can analyze your needs based on the type of work you do. With this
information, you can then either choose a new computer system or enhance an existing one with simple
add-in components that will deliver optimal performance for your unique set of requirements. The goal
is to balance the components of your system to deliver the performance your specific tasks require.
This allows you to focus on your own creativity while efficiently delivering what your client needs.

After attending NYU film school, Adam left the field for several years to explore other interests including drawing, sculpting, woodworking, bicycles, construction, and fitness training. He recently created a bronze statue for the city of Frederick. His return to filmmaking began with shooting and editing documentaries. He has directed the feature documentary “Eb”, and worked on projects for numerous anti-poverty nonprofits. He’s currently writing a comedy feature set to shoot next year. His new company, Archai Media, has several productions in the works both here and in South America. Archai Media also rents its Red Camera gear, and is developing a line of ergonomic camera support accessories.
WHAT DRIVES ME AS A FILMMAKER:
My approach to filmmaking is to focus on a subject that moves me, and to find my way intuitively from there. Everything seems to happen naturally once I catch that spark. The first film I really connected to was Bicycle Thieves. So many moments in the film felt like complex life moments, not movie moments. This changed my conception of what cinema is capable of. I see film as a means of connecting us with our core and helping us live with ourselves and with each other.
