This tip is really obvious but I’m surprised by the number of people that still get caught out by it, so I figured it was worth mentioning.

Well over a year after I first came across M-SIX (on LinkedIn), VEO has finally been released. After much hype and anticipation, and a delayed January launch, Veo is now available to the public. There is even a trial version available.
