NAB Show New York 2016: Adobe Premiere Pro CC Recap
New York Post|Production Conference, Campus, and 5 Keyboard Shortcuts in Premiere Pro CC
By Paul Murphy
NAB Show New York is probably one of my favorite post-production events of the year. Not only because it’s the least distance I have to travel (I just took the subway from Brooklyn to the Javits Convention Centre), but it’s also a great condensed version of NAB Show Las Vegas, with all the best bits packed into 2 days. And much less gambling and casinos.
This is the first year it’s been called NAB Show New York (formerly Content & Communications World). Although most of us have been unofficially calling it that for years now.
New York Post|Production Conference
One of my favorite parts of NAB Show New York was the New York Post|Production Conference — two full days of world-class training. It was a great opportunity to catch up with some of my favorite trainers, including Jeff Greenberg, Ashley Kennedy, Rich Harrington and Eran Stern, and sit in on their sessions. They are some of the best trainers out there, and always inspiring to watch. The conference itself was a great mix of presentations on editing, motion graphics, and production. It also offered unique hands-on sessions that focused on hot topics, such as VR, Drones and HDR workflows.
I taught several sessions myself. The one that seemed to draw the biggest audience was my Hidden Keyboard Shortcuts in Adobe Premiere Pro, which I presented at the Post|Production Campus on the main floor. The Campus is the go-to place for quick hands-on educational sessions at NAB Show New York.
