7:50PM - 8:25PM - Final Share - Bob Zelin
Video Engineer Bob Zelin is flying into LA to show off Final Share from Maxx Digital. What is Final Share? From Bob:
I will be discussing and demonstrating Maxx Digital Final Share. Final Share is a very simple shared storage solution for Final Cut Pro that works with uncompressed SD and compressed HD (ProRes422HQ and DVCProHD). The appeal of this product is that it is very inexpensive, and requires absolutely no management or administration once it is setup. It uses conventional ethernet cables, instead of fibre connectivity. The only software interface is Apple File Sharing. There is no custom software, nor are there any client "licenses".
Maxx Digital will provide a MAC Pro Server with a Maxx Digital Disk drive array, and a second MAC computer that is running Final Cut Pro, in addition to the specialty ethernet equipment that makes this stuff work. With this equipment, I will be able to demonstrate playback of RED camera footage at ProRes422HQ footage over an ethernet cable. I will bring along my MAC Book laptop, and be able to instantly demonstrate being able to connect my MAC Book to the shared storage system, and be able to playback full ProRes422HQ footage right on my laptop. I will invite anyone who would like to bring up their MAC laptop to the stage to be able to instantly connect to this system, and play the same footage. All I have to do is go into System Preferences>Network, and assign a static IP address for that computers ethernet port.
To my knowlege, this is the first time that anyone can have shared storage for very little money, and absolutely no education on complex networking, SAN enviornments, or IT background. ANYONE can do this. And it's cheap!
8:30PM - 9:00PM - Break
In the lobby will be HDDisk showing off their storage solutions. Also Veescope Live will be in lobby. Also JLCooper will be in the lobby showing off thier awesome control surfaces.

The break is a chance to hang out and meet and greet and get your problems solved and who knows, get a job. You never know who you are going to meet at lafcpug. Snacks and Beer and Wine will be on sale in the lobby. Proceeds go to the Gallery Theater.
9:00PM - 9:40PM - iMovie 09 - Randy Ubillos
Apple Distinguished engineer Randy Ubillos is probably best know for creating Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere. He also created Apple Aperture. On a scuba diving vacation he shifted gears and came up with the idea for iMovie 08. Now with iMovie 09 it is time for Pro users to take a serious look at this completely new way of editing your movies. Who better to show it to us but the creator himself, Randy Ubillos.
9:40PM - 9:50PM - Music Video - Chip Bolcik and Robert Schultz - Show and Tell
Chip Bolcik will present a music video that he shot, edited and co-directed. Presenting with Chip, will be choreographer and director Robert Schultz who conceived the idea for this piece. The video features the song I (Bittersweet) by recording artist, Lisette Bustamante, who has just learned that the video is
not only accepted into the Winter Music Conference in Miami, but it will also be a featured video daily during the week-long conference. The video has quite a few effects in it that Chip thinks will be of interest to his fellow LAFCPUG members.
