Adobe DSLR Class Archive Online

If you missed the free e-seminar on using Adobe Creative Suite for DSLR video, you can check it out here. We cover Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and Bridge. Be sure to check out the part on using Photoshop to color grade video files nondestructively.
I'm also amazed at Premiere Pro's ability to handle native DSLR video with no transcoding or rendering (good stuff!).

We focus a lot on DSLR video, but all video pros and photographers will learn something. You can watch the class here online (give it a minute to load).
