And once again I'll be there, hanging on to the bar with absolutely no idea what's going on.

See you then, Michael!

This year we’ve booked the Grand Ballroom at the MGM Grand Hotel that will seat over 1000 people. In addition there will be 30 vendors outside the theatre doors showing off their “toys.” Some of these vendors will not be on the NAB show floor. The SuperMeet will be the only place you will see them. Our World Famous Raffle has over $25,000.00 worth of prizes so far and we haven’t even started.

This will be the biggest party in town during NAB week. Apple may not be on the trade show floor at NAB, but they WILL BE at the SuperMeet. In a BIG way.

So join us and the largest gathering of FCP Users and Gurus on the planet at the MGM Grand Hotel, Wednesday, April 16 from 7PM to 10PM (doors open at 5PM). There will be plenty to eat and drink, plenty to see, plenty to learn and tens of thousands of dollars worth of raffle prizes. We will have presentations by Apple, JVC, Blackmagic, Adobe and many special guests. This is the only place you need to be during NAB week.

Tickets are on sale NOW for only $15.00 each (includes 3 raffle tickets) and this event will sell out. SuperMeets always sell out. So don’t wait until last minute to buy tickets. There won’t be any.

Aperture 2.0, Promise, XMiL and HDV at lafcpug, March 26

The next meeting of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group (lafcpug) will be Wednesday, March 26, 2008 beginning at 6:45PM at the Gallery Theatre in Hollywood CA.

Join us as we welcome Promise Technology and Aperture 2.0 and the world debut of XMiL Sequencer to lafcpug.

Many of you have heard that Apple dropped their Xserve Raid and suddenly this company named Promise Technology and their VTrak E-Class RAID Subsystem shows up on the Apple site seemingly taking it's place. So who is this company? What is Vtrak? Does it have blinking blue lights? Paul McLeod, Senior Marketing Specialist from Promise will show and tell.

Aperture 2.0 just shipped and features over 100 new features for the still photographer. What you might not know is that Aperture should be in every Final Cut Pro editor's toolbox. Apple's Kirk Paulsen will show you why.

XMiL Sequencer. converts an XML file exported from a Final Cut Pro timeline and turns it into an Avid Log Exchange (ALE) file. This file can then be imported into an Avid nonlinear editing system, turning the segments used in the FCP timeline into Avid master clips. Editor and author Rainier Standke will demo. This will be the world premiere of Xmil Sequencer.

Plus, Converting HDV to ProRes 422 - and why you want to with Larry Jordan, Stump The Gurus, Show and Tells and of course, World Famous Raffle.

A $5.00 donation will be requested at the door. Doors open at 6PM. lafcpug meetings are open to the public. First come, best seat.

Hi Michael,

I'm really looking forward to this! Especially since Apple won't be on the NAB show floor.

Are we going to be able to purchase additional raffle tickets when we get there?

No. Chris Hurd bought them all.




Of course! Rules will be same as last year.

Limit 24 extra tickets per person and you can win only one prize.

Damn thing is I can't win any of these prizes.
