Layers TV has announced the availability of new interactive features on their site designed to enhance the viewing and learning experience of the podcast. The new features include downloadable “follow-along” materials for each Layers TV tutorial, and a Show Recommendation feature that allows the audience to suggest future podcast content.
The free, downloadable “follow-along” materials let viewers learn new tips and techniques through hands-on instruction as opposed to simply watching the podcast. To download the files, just pull down the tutorial materials you’re most interested in prior to watching the podcast. Then, as the Layers TV hosts begin their tutorials, open each file in the Adobe CS3 application being used and follow along. Additionally, you can use these follow-along materials to experiment with the techniques learned or share what you’ve learned with others.
Viewers can now have their say as to what training and content is featured on future episodes of Layers TV thanks to the new Show Recommendation feature. Layers TV hosts Corey and RC typically cover the most used applications in Adobe CS3, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop Extended, Flash, Acrobat, After Effects, and Dreamweaver. This feature lets viewers suggest tutorials on such Adobe applications as Premiere Pro, Photoshop Lightroom, Soundbooth, InCopy, Audition, Photoshop Elements, Encore, and Fireworks, as well as programs like Corel Painter X, e frontier Poser Pro, and more.
Layers TV is a weekly podcast, hosted by Layers magazine contributors Corey Barker and Rafael “RC” Concepcion, that features tutorials for the entire Adobe Creative Suite. Each episode also includes product reviews, news, contests, interviews with creative gurus and industry insiders, and much more. Layers TV can be watched via the Layers magazine website or subscribed to for free on iTunes.
