What exactly is a creative workflow hack?

So… if you’ve landed here, you might be asking what exactly is a creative workflow hack?

Hacks in this case are tips, tricks, scripts and other helpful tidbits that address real-world problems that arise in creative environments. These are “helpful” hacks, not “leet haxorz” cracker stuff, although with the popularity of the Oreilly hacks series and the ExtremeTech hacking books, it might not require as much of an explanation as it did back in the old days.

Why should you care what I have to say about this stuff?

You might be in good company if you don’t care , but I run into a lot of stuff in my day gig at Primal Screen that might apply to people trying to “get things done” in creative environments. A few of the topics I hope to cover in the coming weeks…

  • Screencasts and tutorials for After Effects, Photoshop, Final Cut, Illustrator, Flash, etc.
  • After Effects scripts and presets
  • Final Cut plugins and FCP-XML to database connections
  • Connecting your creative workflow to the web with extranets and intranets

If you have any ideas or questions about how to improve your workflow, give me a shout at dale(at)creative-workflow-hacks(dot)com and I’ll try to post solutions and ideas. Let’s get started.
