FCPWORKS, an integrator of Apple hardware and software post-production solutions, has announced a special live event showcasing the latest version of the Final Cut Pro X editing software and the new Mac Pro in action at Unici Casa in Los Angeles on January 25th, 2014.
FCPWORKS Workflow Architect Sam Mestman has over a decade of experience working with Final Cut Pro and will be a featured presenter during the event. As a post-production supervisor and workflow consultant, Mestman has worked on several multimillion dollar productions in Hollywood. “Right now, the post-production world is in a state of massive technological change,” said Mestman. “Managing change is a professional editor’s business and those who can manage change best are more likely to enjoy the greatest longevity in our industry.”
The event will include 4K workflow presentations from a variety of post-production experts from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Softron, and Quantum plus a demonstration from Apple showcasing the latest updates to Final Cut Pro X and its native support for the dual GPUs of the new Mac Pro. The free event is now open for attendee registration here.
In addition to stage presentations, the event will also feature a special ecosystem demonstration area showcasing the new Mac Pro configured for broadcast, film, SAN network, and independent post-production workflows. “It is critical to see how strongly Final Cut Pro X performs in a variety of common post-production environments,” said Mestman. “Our event will completely demystify 4K production and show that Final Cut Pro X makes 4K as easy as editing standard definition DV video was a decade ago, during the last major editing revolution.”
The event for professionals will be presented three times throughout the day on January 25th at Unici Casa, 9461 Jefferson Blvd, Culver City, California, 90232. Attendees are encouraged to register for the most convenient session for their schedule. Free parking will be provided during the event. Register here.
