7:20PM - 7:30PM - Announcements
This is a chance to get up and ask for a job, offer job opportunities, announce your film or service, or tell a bad joke. Be brief.
7:35PM - 8:30PM - Avid Media Composer 5 - Steve Cohen
Avid Media Composer 5 is perhaps the most significant upgrade in its long history. This is not your father's NLE. Its new features are designed with all editors in mind, whether you work in Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere. If you are exclusively a FCP user, you need to see this. If you are a Premiere user, you need to see this. And if you are an Avid user, then lets see it the way it should be seen, demoed by working editor, Steve Cohen. (Note: A team from Avid will be in the lobby to answer all questions and listen to your feedback.)
8:35PM - 9:00PM - Break
In the lobby will be many FCS Gurus. This is your chance to ask questions. No questions? ProMax will be in the lobby showing off their editing and storage solutions. A bunch of the boys and girls from the Avid team will set up a table to answer all questions and listen to your feedback. 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 - 9:30PM - FCP for Avid Editors - Steve Kanter

Learn how to emulate such "Avid-only" features like focus, slipping in real-time using JKL, trimming with 4-up display, Expert Render, sequence to sequence editing, copying keyframes, and even simultaneous, Unity-style Project Sharing. Plus, a demonstration of the new AAF Transfer plug-in, which will allow editors to send their FCP sequences back to Avid, just in case they still can't cope. Time permitting, he'll even show a few Avid Tips for Final Cut Pro Editors.
9:35PM - 9:45PM - Yes Equals Yes - Benno Nelson
Benno Nelson, creative director and owner of Yes Equals Yes, shares his experience running a production company and how they are targeting the new media production world. He'll also talk about how they promote and brand the company itself. Naturally he will gratuitously name drop Final Cut Pro at key points during his talk.
