What’s Next with AdobeCCVide0: Al Mooney, Adobe

Adobe rolled out the new Adobe Premiere Pro at NABShow and here’s your chance to see what the fuss is all about and meet the man in charge of the program, Al Mooney.  Always one of our most popular guests, Al will show the improvements for editors with the tool, along with the new “Project Candy.”

Increasingly editors are expected to do more – from finessing audio to color correction and motion graphics work – earlier and earlier in the editing process. Adobe Premiere Pro has come to be known for its unparalleled innovation addressing the needs of editors through every step of the editing process. Al Mooney will demonstrate how, through Creative Cloud, new innovations will continue to make Premiere Pro CC the market leading NLE.


Al Mooney has extensive technical, sales and marketing experience in the media industry. As product manager for Adobe Premiere Pro software, Mooney is responsible for defining, delivering, and supporting the overall feature set and functionality. Earlier, Mooney was the UK senior business development manager for video and broadcast at Adobe, providing technical workflow consultation for top broadcast accounts in the U.K. In that role, he oversaw the redevelopment of Adobe’s video VAR channel, a network of expert resellers and service providers for the Media and Entertainment industry.

Mooney joined Adobe in 2009, after spending two years at Apple as the U.K. Pro Video business development manager. There he was responsible for the communication and go-to-market strategy of video solutions for the U.K. market, working with resellers and customers.

Before Apple, Mooney was European sales specialist at Digidesign, a division of Avid Technology. In this role, Mooney was responsible for the communication of high-end solutions into multiple territories, and managed technical communication between European specialists and engineers in the U.S. He also held earlier positions at Digidesign, including post-production product specialist, EMEA product specialist and marketing representative.

We are proud to have Jeff I. Greenberg, Master Trainer and Editor, give you a glimpse into the potential of what makes GenArts Sapphire 8 so powerful, and how Sapphire 8 can make your lives easier and your work look more creatively unique.

The problem with most plugins is that you’re limited to what they can do out of the box. What if you could change and revise every single effect as easy as changing a flow chart? See how to easily do so with Sapphire 8 in Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.

Sapphire 8 is the essential Visual Effects Suite for Broadcast, Advertising and Film. With a robust collection of effects, transitions and preset looks, Sapphire 8 encourages creativity, helping to bring stories to life.

HD-VU2 Native File Viewer: Mark Hudgins, Imagine Products

Imagine Products has been creating software applications for the media and entertainment industry for over 20 years. By developing high value, innovative digital video utilities to backup, view, share, transcode and archive assets, Imagine Products has established a high reputation among filmmakers.

Mark Hudgins will show Imagine Product’s latest application HD-VU2 which is a native file viewer that instantly views over 20 camera formats without transcoding. HD-VU2 is powerful enough to view 4K files including ARRI RAW, CinemaDNG and all the RED formats, not to mention GoPro, Panasonic, Sony and countless others! A LUT file can also be imported and applied to one or a group of files for temporary color correction. HD-VU2 will also sync external audio files! HD-VU2 is an indispensible quality assurance tool for DITs and all filmmakers.

Imagine Products is most well known for their offloading application, ShotPut Pro, which is now in it’s 5th version. ShotPut Pro 5 offers incredible speed and efficiency and uses checksum technology to ensure offloading is 100% accurate.

The same thoughtfulness toward file accuracy was used when creating the archiving application, PreRoll Post. Combined with any LTO tape deck, PreRoll Post takes advantage of the LTFS (Linear Tape File System) supported by tape drive manufacturers. PreRoll Post can create thumbs, metadata and proxies all while backing up to many different locations. Both applications offer different presets for customizing to the end users specifications.

Imagine Products prides itself on creating powerful applications that are extremely affordable and even easier to use. Join them for a demonstration of HD-VU2 as well as tips and tricks in the field.



Mark Hudgins is the Lead Software Engineer onHD-VU2 and many other applications from Imagine Products. He has been with the company for over 7 years. Over that time he has become extremely knowledgeable regarding the post –production world and the workflows within. Mark Hudgins has a masters degree in computer science from Purdue University.
