lafcpug at DV Expo

The Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group along with leaders of the Boston, San Francisco, Chicago San Diego and Washington DC, FCP User Groups gathered for a very special "Meeting" at the DV Expo, December 11 beginning at 6:00PM at the LA Convention Center. This was the largest gathering of FCP Gurus on the planet. Well, at least during the month of December.

On the agenda was FCP Product Designer Brian Meaney, Apple's Michael Wong, and FCP lead Engineer, David Black who took questions and gathered feedback from the audience on Final Cut Pro 3 and beyond.

Cawan Starks of Promax demoed DeckLink from Blackmagic-Design, the most talked about Video Capture Card to hit the market since the AJA KONA.

Digital Anarchy's Jim Tierney premiered 2 brand new plug ins for FCP: Psumani and Aurora Sky.

Director Noah Kadner showed us the results of a side by side video shoot he did with the new Panasonic DVX100 24P Camcorder and the Sony PD 150.

Director of Photography Nate Weaver presented "If Ozzy Was My Dad (That Would Rock)", a video produced with the new Panasonic DVX100 24Pand shot in one exhausting 19-hour day, with a crew of 3 and budget of $150. This video displayed just how much production value can be had for the low-budget filmmaker.

Plus there will be a raffle with prizes totaling close to $4,000 including a copy of DVD Studio Pro donated by Apple Computer.

It was a great time had by all but unfortunately it wont be available on DVD

But we do have pictures courtesy of Ken stone
