Calling all Heros



It’s time to show off your Composer skills.

In talking with users at trade shows and customer sites many of you have developed really cool tips and tricks of your own to help speed up your production or help in specific situations.

Why not show off those skills and be a hero to others who may have similar needs. In the near future, we will be taking submissions from our users and resellers to help you do just that.

We realize that some of you may have cool ideas but may be a bit shy so you may not want to make a recording of yourself. We can help there too. If you submit a “rough” of either an idea or technique in any forum maybe it’s just screen grabs and a written procedure or a rough Camtasia screen recording I’ll be happy to re-record and give full credit to you for your ideas...

Enjoy… and just ignore the German title block 🙂
