Agenda (subject to change and availability)
6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join Gurus Patrick Southern, Misha Tenenbaum, Michael Kammes and Philip Hodgetts as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCS and FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro and anything else you can think of. If they can't solve your problem or answer your question, then you go home with a problem, but you still got out of the house, so that's not a bad thing.
7:20PM - 7:30PM - Announcements
This is your time, assuming we have time. New to LA? Say Hello. Got a movie you want people to see? Tell us about it. Looking for a job? Tell us. Offering a job? Tell us.
7:30PM - 7:45PM - FindrCat Pro: Media Asset Management so simple, you’ll probably use it - Philip Hodgetts.
Take the keyword ranges from FCP X and inject the metadata into Finder Tags, as well as into the file itself. Use Finder Tags to search across drives to find media in the Finder, then drag back to FCP X where Finder Tags become Keywords again.
Upgrade to FindrCat Pro (in app) and drag your Finder selects to FindrCat Pro and all the metadata from the original Clips is returned to the Event.
Your valuable metadata travels with the file. If the file is there, the metadata is there. Simple asset management and security in one package.
