Join LAdobe on Thursday night, September 24th at 7pm at the Art Institute of California-Hollywood on 3440 Wilshire Blvd. Parking is available for free after 5PM at the garage behind the Art Institute building on Wilshire and Maricopa. You can receive a validation ticket to go along with your parking ticket inside the Art Institute. Keep both tickets as you will need them to receive free parking from their new automated parking system. There will be a guard at the back of the building housing the Art Institute (in front of the parking facility). Just let him know you are here for the LAdobe meeting and you should be allowed in with no problems or hassles. The meeting will be held in Room 1005 on the 10th Floor.

Remember, all LAdobe events and meetings are always free to attend.

On September 24th, we’ll be having a special preview of Adobe’s MAX by featuring a special ‘Dress Rehearsal’ featuring Jimbeau Andrews, chief creative director and visionary behind HotClickVideo technology (and the new co-manager of the new Orange County Adobe User Group), discuss how Mobile Media Now has used Adobe products to monetize digital video for customers such as Harley-Davidson, Bon Jovi, and Silverback Records. See how Mobile Media Now has taken video to the next level through the use of Adobe Flash Professional and hotFlashVideo. HotClickVideo allows users to create hot spots — containers of buttons that follow shapes, colors, and images across video frames — in a video. Mobile Media Now’s unique XML process enables dynamic updating, real-time catalogs, and seamless e-commerce, all without interrupting the video.

We will start the night however, with freelance designer and the new User Group Manager of the soon to launch Orange County Adobe User Group, Glenda Hoffman, who will show off some of her best InDesign tips and tricks. InDesign sessions have lately been in demand at LAdobe and we’re happy to bring one of the OC’s best to LA!

We also plans to have our usual collection of books as well as some great swag from TechSmith as part of our preview (we’re giving away Camtasia Studio Mac at MiniMAX). So don’t miss out on our next meeting on the 24th!
