I think AE is a fairly crowded interface and yet it's pretty logical most of the time and I don't spend a lot of time searching for stuff. There are UI things I like about Motion, but I find organizin

It's hard to compare Apple with Adobe when it comes to software sales discussions strategies. Although Apple charges for certain software, it uses software sales as somewhat of a loss-leader for its h

The Ultra Studio Mini Monitor goes HDMI or SDI with embedded audio out. As does the T-Tap. But then it's usually easy to pull analog audio as a loop through from the audio out of most monitors.
