Our post-production computer lab features Adobe Software, including Premiere, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and AfterEffects; DaVinci post-production software; Hindenburg; AutoCAD; Sketch; and Rhino. Barnard and Columbia students can drop-in to use whenever the space is open, however, check the calendar as it is sometimes reserved for courses and workshops. No food is allowed, and beverages must be in a sealed container. Graphics and post-production work is prioritized for use in the space.
To use our Post-Production lab, you may drop in without a reservation during Milstein Center Building Hours. Additionally, you can access Graduate Assistant Help Hours Virtually (book below). So if you're working with creative software at home or in the lab, someone can be there to troubleshoot with you!
