UKFCUG Glasgow meeting Thursday

The UK Final Cut Users' Group is holding its first ever meeting in Scotland this Thursday (22 September), with an interesting looking line up.

Doors open 6.30pm, and the first presentation starts at 7pm, with How To Edit with FCPX by Rick Young (pictured top), who will reveal what it is good for, how it works, and how to integrate FCPX into your current workflow.

After a half-hour break, at 8.30, Andy Bellamy from AJA will introduce its latest products, including the new Io XT - the first dual Thunderbolt port I/O device.

At 8.55, Alastair Brown, who created the Glidetrack, will show how these tripod mounted dollies for DSLR and video cameras evolved, and what it enables users to do.

At 9.20: After editing for a decade in FCP, what's it like to switch to Adobe Premiere Pro? Producer/director, Matt Davis (pictured) is making the transition from FCP7 to PPro 5.5. What were the advantages? What were the pitfalls? What were the surprises?

9.45 - 10.30pm - IBC overview: HD Warrior, Philip Johnston, and MacVideoTV's Rick Young will look at what was new at IBC 2011, including: the new JVC GY-HM150; AJA offering DNxHD recording for the Ki Pro Mini; new Thunderbolt devices; Sony's SR memory and 100GB optical discs; Mike Tapas adapter for manual control of EOS lenses on large sensor DSLRs; and more….
