Our USA and international first class magazines were sent out a couple of weeks ago, and so we've waited long enough to introduce you to the latest edition of Creative COW Magazine. And what a great issue it is. It is full of cutting edge articles that explore the rapid changes in our market and the ways that people are producing, viewing and distributing media for the latest screens, big and small.

One of the stories that we feel is right up there with our best ever, is the article by Robert Longwell of ABC, who takes our members inside ABC.com -- the first network to stream their first-run shows not just to web browsers, but to just about every portable device out there. It is a story you will want to read. But it doesn't stop there, the issue has many other stories that could have been our lead story, they were that good. So download it, it won't cost you anything to get our digital edition.

Visit http://magazine.creativecow.net/downloads.php to find our new "Divergence Issue," as well as all of our other information packed and inspiring issues of Creative COW Magazine.

Oh, and if you feel like joining our first-class subscribers who get preferred mailings and see our new issues before anyone else, you can also subscribe at https://secure.creativecow.net/magazine/subscribe.php -- we'd be honored to have you aboard.

Apple Soundtrack
This Soundtrack Pro video tutorial covers two useful techniques for fixing dialogue used in documentaries or other productions.  1) Time stretching for dialogue will fit a bit of dialogue as needed within a scene, and 2) Matching voice levels between two or more dialogue clips will make one clip sound more like another. Both tasks are easy to do for anyone working within Final Cut Studio, and this tutorial will walk you through the two procedures.

Cinema 4D
One of the wonders of the C4D platform is it's interconnectivity with other sources of 3D models. Let's be honest, who has time to handcraft thousands of blades of grass or populate the night sky one star at a time? But using the content available in Poser and the generators found in Vue, it takes just a little longer then this 5 1/2 minute tutorial to put that content into C4D for integrated scenes and robust animations.

CoreMelt Plug-ins
Iain Anderson takes us through some of the new features found in the latest version of Lock & Load X, CoreMelt's video stabilisation and rolling shutter reduction plugin.
With new features like tracking area, you can track just the part of the footage you want to stabilize to have complete control of the stabilization.
