After Effects CC 2017

This day, another one of my instructional is hitting the book shelves. Being one of my everyday tools, I wrote a 101 starting guide for Adobe After Effects. Witihn a couple of exciting months, I put together a step-by-step manual, starting with basic keyframing to finishing and fine-tuning animations. Along the way, the reader gets to know about color correction, VFX, compositing, 3D and stabilisation. You can check it at out at here.

Premiere Elements 15

Once again, I redid the beginner’s guide for Adobe’s editing software. You can get it at mitp or Amazon.

Premiere Elements Reloaded

Adobe recently released Premiere Elements 14, so I did an update on the beginner’s guide, published by my good friends at mitp. Get a copy and read all about the new features and some new tricks.

Videoschnitt mit Premiere Elements 12

Adobe brushed up on their editing tool for novices and beginners, a.k.a. Premiere Elements in its 12th revision. And so did I. My new handbook in collaboration with Volker Berg is now available on Amazon and @ Verlagsgruppe HJR.

Unterwegs mit der GoPro

As of now, my second book is hitting the book stores. In collaboration with Ben Grna, we put the GoPro HD Hero to the acid. Our results are published in mitp-FotoHits „Und Action – Unterwegs mit der GoPro“, with additional basics for filming and editing as well as examples. It’s available at Amazon as well as mitp. We like to thank Andreas Straube @ for all his support and the equipment. Check out his shop.

„Continuation“ by Ashes Of A Lifetime

As of today the music clip for „Continuation“ is available online. ASHES OF A LIFETIME take another step towards releasiing their new EP „Green“. Pretty stoked about the result of working with the band on their six minute kick-ass piece. Ashes-frontman Nils about the song: it’s about the liberation of myself… it’s about having everything we need to resist the power… it’s about escaping our fate… life is what we make of it. More about the video and making-of material here.
