1st Annual FCPUG SuperMeet coming to London, England, 25 June 2009

I wanted to let all digital filmmakers and FCP users who live in the UK and EU know that the first annual FCPUG SuperMeet is coming to London, England on 25 June, 2009.

We have booked the Great Hall at the Kensington Conference and Event Centre and are currently in the process of raising the necessary funds to put on this event.

For those of you who do not know, nor ever heard of a SuperMeet, they are essentially gatherings of Final Cut Pro editors, gurus and Mac-based digital filmmakers from throughout the world who use or want to learn to use Apple’s Final Cut Studio suite of applications, most importantly Final Cut Pro. The FCP UG Network’s mission is to build connections between Final Cut Pro users, filmmakers and professionals who wish to lead the digital filmmaking revolution. This event is a great opportunity to network and hang out with like minded folks, many of whom might be able to help you.

SuperMeets are held annually along side large trade shows such as Macworld in San Francisco, NAB in Las Vegas and IBC in Amsterdam. The agenda usually includes demos of new products, digital video tips and tricks, and filmmaker show and tells. In addition there are over two dozen vendors showing off their wares as part of what the organizers call the FCP Trade Show. In addition we give away thousands of dollars worth of "raffle" prizes as part of our "World Famous Raffle."

This is our first time in London and the first time we will not hold this event along side a trade show. We want to see if we can stand on our own 2 feet. We are confident we can.

Agenda will be announced in early June, but we hope we can count on many of you to get the word out as our marketing budget is pretty limited. Meaning we don't have a lot of money. We prefer to put out money into the event rather than about the event.

We have put up a web site and are updating it daily so please check in every so often to see where we are at.

FCPUG UK 2009 SuperMeet

Tickets will go on sale on 18, May 2009 for only £10.99 each. It is important to us that we keep costs affordable for everyone including sponsors.

Thanks for any help you can give us and we are very excited to be coming to London. It's gong to be a great show and we hope many of you will attend.

MXO2, Mocha for FCP and Metadata at lafcpug, July 22

MXO2, Mocha for FCP and Metadata at lafcpug, July 22

The next meeting of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group (lafcpug) will be Wednesday, July 22, 2009 beginning at 6:45PM - till we drop at the Gallery Theater in Hollywood California.

Get out of the house and into lafcpug.

Join us as we demo the new plug-in from Imagineer systems, Mocha for Final Cut.

Also Shane Ross and Matrox's Gabriel Mitri will demonstrate the new Matrox MXO2 MAX. They will show off the flexible I/O capabilities within the FCP workflow, as well as the new Faster-Than-Real-Time H.264 encoder built right into the box. They will show you how you can drastically cut down H.264 encoding times for Blu-Ray, the web and mobile devices using Compressor. Matrox will also give away a MXO2 Mini Max as part of the World Famous Raffle.

Also Philip Hodgetts will debut new applications, Metadata Explorer and ExceLogger.
Metadata Explorer does two things: in the (free) demo form it let's you look at that hidden metadata and (optionally) save it out to an excel spreadsheet. Pay for the application and you can map the hidden metadata to editable FCP fields, so that it can be used inside FCP.
exceLogger let's you use the power of Microsoft Excel to log already captured clips. With exceLogger you export clips (as a Batch List) to Excel, and an XML file of your FCP project.
In Excel, add logging information and create new subclips until you're done.

Also filmmaker Steve Payne will show us clips and give us a primer on his brand new documentary, "Fresno."

Plus, Show and Tells, Stump the Gurus, World Famous Raffle and more. All in one night!

Meetings are open to public. Come one come all. Doors open at 6:00PM First come, best seat.

A $5.00 donation will be requested at the door.

For complete details on the agenda and directions to the Gallery Theater please visit the lafcpug web site.

Mocha and FCP 7

The idea behind this software looked to me very attractive.
And I bought Mocha for FCP to find out that it does not work with FCP 7. I guess company should upgrade Mocha to be up to date with latest development in major applications (FCP 7 in particular). Do you have different experience?
How about Boris Motion tracker (although as I understand it has no plane tracking capability)?
