Final Cut Server and Burning Blu-ray DVDs

Join us as we welcome Apple and the LA debut of Final Cut Server. Also Adobe will show us how to create and burn a Blu-ray DVD using Encore. Philip Hodgetts will debut what may be the scariest "editing" tool you will ever see, The Assistant Editor. Plus, Stump The Gurus, Show and Tells and of course, World Famous Raffle.


6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join FCP Gurus Andrew Balis, Shane Ross and Philip Hodgetts as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCP. If they can't solve your problem or answer your How 2, then you go home with a problem but you still got out of the house, so that's not a bad thing.

7:20PM - 7:40PM - The Assistant Editor- Philip Hodgetts
Shown first at the NAB SuperMeet, the Assistant Editor just might be the scariest editing tool you will ever see. Philip Hodgetts the co-creator will show off and tell you all about it.

7:45PM - 8:30PM - Final Cut Server - Luke Tristram
Think you know Final Cut Server? Well, you don't. You need to see it and touch it in order to understand it. Final Cut Server is not just for the big Post Houses and Production Companies. It's for all of us. This will be the Los Angeles debut of FC Server and we are honored to have Apple's Luke Tristram show it off to us. You don't want to miss this

8:30PM - 8:55PM - Break
Brad Wright of VeeScope Live will be in lobby complete with Green Screen. GMAX will be there showing off their storage solutions. Lots of other stuff will be showing off too. The break is a chance to hang out and meet and greet and get your problems solved. Lots of FCP Gurus come to lafcpug meetings and this is your chance to network and make contacts and get your problems solved. Snacks and Beer and Wine will be on sale in the lobby. Proceeds go to the Gallery Theater.

9:00PM - 9:35PM - Burning Blu-ray DVDs and authroing with Adobe Encore. - Kevan O'Brien
There is a lot of confusion about Blu-ray. But one thing that is not confusing is the only way a FCS user can burn a Blu-ray DVD is with Adobe Encore and a Blu-ray burner. Adobe's Kevan O'Brien will show us how.

9:40 - 9:50PM - Stefano Torrese and Diego Antolini - Show and Tell
Stefano Torrese who is the head of the Italy Final Cut Pro User Group and Diego Antolini will show clips of their work.

9:50PM - 10:00PM - "Journey"an animated painting by David Friedman - Show and Tell
"Journey" is a cyberdelic meditation, a visual/aural ride inside the flow of spirit. It is a time-based animated painting that combines pigment, pixel and photon in a synthesis of art, heart and hardware. The consequence is a compelling kaleidoscopic flythrough of radiant colors and luminous mandala geometries. My art is informed by the confluence of painting, CG, motion graphics, Internet, gaming and VJ.
