There was a packed house at the DMA / LA meeting last night. The Adobe CS5 launch was highly anticipated and well attended. And we had a good look at the new CS5 Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Of course the big reveal was After Effects CS5. Mike from Adobe went into a lot of detail about the 64bit memory processing and and some of the free 3rd party plugins bundled with the new package.
We had quite a few people sign up for this month's meeting. Is one of these people you? If it is, COME SEE ME TONIGHT! These people signed up for the April meeting and were #1, #50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350 in the Eventbrite registry

Robert Cornero who sought me out last night (I was kinda hard to miss)
Shout out to Clayton Root who took the trouble to cut out his ticket into the shape of a ticket. Usually people just print 'em out with all of their email header garbage on it. Clayton printed it out full color, and clipped it to taste.
Clayton is a regular member of dmala, and, despite his stern avatar, is friendly and involved.
Recyclers, Morgan Mendieta and Anthony Barcelo printed out their tickets on some of their scrap artwork printouts.
Anthony recently did some work related to CLASH OF THE TITANS

Group member, olive4u, has an awesome little icon for their avatar.
Dunno who this is, or where in the world they are, but fill it out a little more, and if you're in Los Angeles - come see me tomorrow at the meeting for something cool for the avatar that made me laugh this morning.
--For the rest of you--
Have you updated your AUG avatar? Doesn't have to be a photo of yourself, but show us something creative.
Yeah - it's new. If you're here, you've noticed that the Adobe Groups pages have undergone a major facelift.... which means all of our faces are gone.
That gives us a chance to get better pictures in for our avatars... right? Make sure you DONT see the JOIN THIS GROUP button on the main page, cuz that means that you're a member of our group. Put your face up, and remember your user name.
We'll see you on Tuesday!
Yes, the wait is over. CS5 is here. Join us for the launch. http://cs5launch.adobe.com/ sneek peeks also are here.
Photoshop and Painter combined? Howgreat is this!
Everyone going to NAB check out the Adobe booth! You can get up close and personal with CS5 and take it for a trial run.
Thanks Adobe for keeping us on the leading edge! Now its our job to apply the creativity, the talent of our DMALA members never cease to amaze me. I am really looking forward to seeing your projects and reels.
If you would like to weigh in on the issue of public support of the arts in LA, here FYI is a campaign in support of the City's theaters and arts centers through which you can make your thoughts known to your local elected official.
Here is the link for the campaign: http://www.artsforla.org/take_action/culturalcenters
