Sharing mobile device content on your desktop

Posted on Sep 30, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Oct 6, 2015

I use a number of Adobe mobile apps on both iOS and Android devices. I also use both a Mac and a number of Windows computers. I have put together a weblog post covering how I currently display the contents of these mobile devices (such as Adobe Comp CC or Adobe Voice) when presenting to students and others.

How To Use The Cover Video Adobe Muse Widget From 123Muse

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Sep 28, 2015

“Wouldn’t it be great if you could create a responsive Parallax Scrolling page in Adobe Muse that contains video!” Turns out, the wizards at 123Muse have created a Muse Widget that does exactly that. The widget, named Cover Video, creates full screen video background pages that work smoothly in Parallax-based landing pages. What really makes this widget impressive is that it is responsive meaning your video will adjust to  desktops, tablets and smartphones with no distortion. Before I get going keep in mind you will need the following assets: MP4 version of the video. WebM version of the video. Jpg. Screen shot of the video’s first frame that will be used as a Poster frame.

How To Create A Text Mask In Adobe Illustrator CC

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 4, 2015

So far I have shown how text can be used as a mask in Photoshop. If you have been following along with this series, you may have noticed the techniques are remarkably similar. All you need is some text and an image and, when you select both objects, a single click creates the mask and the image shows through the text. Being a vector application and knowing text really is nothing more than a series of vectors, it would be safe to assume there are a number of interesting things you can do with a text mask in Illustrator. In this How To I am going to show you three ways of creating Text Mask in Illustrator.

How To Add Content To An Adobe Illustrator Perspective Grid

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 5, 2015

In the previous article I covered off the various bits and pieces of the Adobe Illustrator Perspective Grid tool. In this piece I answer a common question: How do you add stuff to the grid and have it place in perspective? Prior to the introduction of the Perspective Grid tool, adding content – images, vestors, text – to a perspective drawing on an artboard was an exercise in frustration. You had to identify a Horizon Line, draw the grid and then somehow distort the object to make it look somewhat natural.Naturally, there were tons of methods Illustrator Artists used to accomplish this but, in the final analysis, it was a time-consuming process. With the introduction of the Perspective Grid tool in Adobe Illustrator CS5, that process was reduced to a few mouse clicks and the convoluted methods of adding and using perspective in Illustrator were relegated to the dust heap.

Keeping Things In Perspective With The Adobe Illustrator Perspective Grid

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 5, 2015

There is a tool in Adobe Illustrator that inevitably confounds people who encounter it. It is the Perspective Grid Tool that was introduced in Illustrator CS5. Once you understand it you will discover it is one of the handiest tools in the toolbar. Unfortunately, it is the “using it” that is the inevitable stumbling block. When it first appears on the artboard the grid looks like a confusing jumble of coloured lines and handles with no clear starting point. This is understandable but the purpose of the Perspective Grid is to allow you to draw, in perspective, completely inside of Illustrator. Prior to its introduction drawing a box in perspective in Illustrator seemed like it required a degree in Advanced Mathematics. There were all sorts of secret formulas, skew values and so on that were used to draw a simple box. No longer. The Perspective Grid reduces the previous complication to a simple drag and drop procedure.

How To Create A Video Mask Effect In Adobe Photoshop CC

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Sep 28, 2015

I’ll have to admit when Photoshop added the ability to work with video I thought Adobe had gone too far. To me it seemed to be a classic case of “bloat” and this was a feature I would most likely never use. Boy was I wrong! It turns out that the amount of fun you can have with video in Photoshop should be illegal. In this “How To” I am going to show you how to use the video feature of Photoshop CC or CC 2015 to create a rather interesting masking effect using the video. I am going to use a short 10-second clip of some waves I shot on a beach in California and use the waves to mask an underlying image. As the waves roll in and out, the underlying artwork is revealed and hidden.

Illustrator CC Gets A Sweet Chart Tool

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Sep 28, 2015

A couple of months ago I did a “How To” around creating a pictogram chart in Adobe Illustrator CC 2015. Then a funny thing happened just after the piece appeared: Adobe quietly added a new Chart Tool – Charts – to the Illustrator CC 2015 line up. The tool was so quietly added it was only briefly mentioned in the June 2015 Creative Cloud update. Before those of you who create infographics in Illustrator get all giddy, you need to know Adobe is very clear this feature is in the realm of “technology preview.” What this means is it is incomplete (only one feature, Scale By Area is available), not production-ready and may or may not be added to a future Illustrator update. Also, Creative Cloud Charts is only enabled for U.S. and U.K. Illustrator CC 2015 users. Even so, it is a rather neat feature that makes the creation of infographics even easier than ever.

Creativity Booster

Posted on Sep 27, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Oct 6, 2015

Over the course of this year I have been attempting to build my skills in a range of Adobe programs (particularly Photoshop and After Effects). I have given myself a task using the restriction method where I must create as many new animations as possible using the same source material. Each animation must be based around the image you see here (or some derivative of it) - an emblem of sorts that I have created for myself. The animations must also perform a perfect loop so that they can be saved as GIFs. Although not a specific restriction I have also been endeavouring to keep file size small given the nature and use of GIFs.  Skills in programs like Photoshop and After Effects are like muscles in the body - if you exercise them they will grow and strengthen and if not you will begin to lose the ability to do things you once found simple. This exercise has been a great boon for me in terms of my own skills and my creative thinking and problem solving - I can only imagine what students woul... Read More

I found this video on Film Riot which they suggested be shared for basic video editing practice.  The material depending on what grades you teach may not be appropriate for school.  Not for foul language but just in general content.  This is up to your discretion.  I am attaching the script and the video for this project that teaches practical editing, timing, reaction shots and cutaways from raw footage shot by the FIlm Riot Team.  Please have your students give credit to Film Riot in the credits of their project.

Adobe Illustrator for beginners

Posted on Sep 23, 2015 by Christian Gutierrez Last Activity on Sep 23, 2015

Adobe Illustrator is a drawing program that enables users to make technical illustrations, elaborate drawings, graphics and page designs for print, the Internet and multimedia. Adobe Illustrator also offers an extensive range of drawing and painting tools, not to mention typographic control. It is very similar to Photoshop in that it has feathering, inner and outer glow and nondestructive drop shadows. There are a lot of benefits for using Adobe Illustrator as opposed to other graphics programs. Some of the benefits are that the program allows users to work more efficiently with custom workspaces. It also has an updated interface with many space saving features and custom viewing options. There are also text options such as OpenType fonts and paragraph composition. It also encourages productivity with in-panel appearance editing and multiple artboards.
