The Genesis Project by Dennis Radke
What a crazy second half we’re off to. Within our industry, we rarely if ever have seen the kind of furor that has been happening over the last several weeks. The blogosphere and twittersphere have been going crazy within our creative community. Recently, that’s been accentuated by Adobe’s unusual offer to encourage users of other editing platforms to adopt Adobe as part of their toolkit.

Save 50% off Adobe® Creative Suite® 5.5 Production Premium or Adobe Premiere® Pro CS5.5 software if you own Apple Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer with offer code SWITCH. Offer ends September 30, 2011.
