DMALA WORKOUT: Software & Community

workoutweekChances are, there was someone in your career who gave you a helping hand with one of your favorite software, and helped you on your way to becoming the professional artist you are today.
Think about how those few words, links, tutorials, or screenshots may have helped you out.  Now think about how you can do that for someone else.  ADOBE COMMUNITY has millions of users, some looking for answers that you know immediately.  Sign in and help out.

THROUGH APRIL 11*, I am challenging each dmala member to do ONE(1) of the following each week (you pick):

  • ANSWER A QUESTION IN THE COMMUNITY FORUMS
  • POST A QUESTION THAT’S BEEN CHALLENGING TO YOU
  • TWEET A QUESTION/URL THAT MIGHT BE SOMETHING YOU WOULD’VE ASKED (That’s a good question!)
  • TWEET AN ANSWER/URL THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE ANSWERED (That’s a good answer!)

DMALA is a community of professionals who have a HUGE collective knowledge about the VFX, ANIMATION, MOTION GRAPHICS, EDUCATION process, and the Adobe software used in the creation of that work.  Let’s support each other and others who can’t attend our monthly meetings in Hollywood by getting involved online.

It’s not only a way to share what you know, but it’s a great way to reveal some things you DON’T know.

See you in there. https://forums.adobe.com/welcome
