Join FCP Guru Ken Stone, and special guest gurus, Andrew Balis and Steve Martin as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCP.

I'm an independent filmmaker working on a documentary based on "Straightlife," the book I wrote with my late husband, jazz musician, Art Pepper. I'm using Art's music and his voice as narration. The movie includes enacted sequences and various kinds of animation. The clip is part of the work-in-progress, but I think it does okay as a stand-alone short film. It's called "San Francisco, 1957" and is a little over 7 minutes long with opening and end titles. -- Laurie Pepper

Hey Michael,

Do you (or Jan) know if this will be a fully functional unit?
(From info I read on the CML list the HVX200 at HD Expo was not.)
