Final Cut User Group on MC v4 – Wednesday

This month the Media Composer will take center stage at the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group (lafcpug). I’ll be making a presentation, along with Shane Ross and Walter Murch. I plan to cover some of the new editorial features in Version 4, namely Transition Preservation, and I’ll also do a quick overview of the Advanced Keyframe model and why I love trim mode. Shane will go over Avid Media Access (AMA) and the new Mix and Match frame rate capability, and Walter will describe his experiences returning to the Media Composer after so many years on Final Cut. It promises to be a very interesting evening and will probably be sold out by the end of the weekend.

The meeting takes place at the Gallery Theater in Barnsdale Park — 4800 Hollywood Blvd (between Vermont & Normandie). It’ll start at about 6:45 pm. Details and travel directions are here.

Admission is just $8. I’ve been given three free tickets to distribute. They’ll go to the first three people who add comments to this post. I’ll be able to see the name and email address you registered under, and you’ll present that at the door to pick up your tix. See you there!

    Sounds like a great event. As someone that uses both, I’m anticipating v.4.

    Wish I could make it but return airfare from New Zealand is cost prohibitive. Any chance of recording(s)?

  4. Shane Ross Says:

    The meetings are available for $.50 or $.99…not long after the event I believe.

  5. Dylan Says:

    Shane Ross, you’re a genius… I’ll look forward to seeing it.

    Also, as I figure it there’s still one free ticket up for grabs – I was comment three but I can’t use it, then Shane was the next, but he’s presenting, so I doubt he needs it… Then me again… Surely the next comment get’s the free ticket :)

  6. Steve Says:

    Yup — there’s one left.


  7. Steve Says:

    I do, and it’s yours. And our little drawing is now officially closed.


  8. Dylan Says:

    Wish I could be there. I hope you’ll blog about it for those of us who couldn’t make it. Very curious to hear how it all goes.

  9. Cynthia Ludwig Says:

    Ugh. I didn’t realize I needed a ticket and now it is sold out. : ( I really want to see this but I guess I’ll have to wait for the video?

  10. Steve Says:

    There will be a waiting list. And there will probably be cancellations. That’s all there is at this point, I’m afraid.


  11. Phil Benson Says:

    How’d it go, Steve?


  12. Barrett Taylor Says:


    Thank you for your contribution to one of the best LAFCPUG meeting I’ve ever attended. I found it particularly interesting how Walter kept checking with you on the new features in MC 4. Apparently you’re the man to listen to. Thanks again.
