Apple is sponsoring a free seminar series called “Video’s Third Revolution: The Next Wave in Video Editing Productivity.” It will focus on — not surprisingly — Apple’s high-end Final Cut Pro 3 product.
The series is targeted to broadcast professionals, including producers, directors, and editors; independent post-production houses and commercial editing facilities; independent producers; event/social videographers; industrial film and video makers; and corporate communicators and trainers.
Apple promises that attendees will learn:
How the new OfflineRT format in Final Cut Pro 3 increases your ability to store and quickly access footage;
How G4 real-time effects let you preview and experiment with all sorts of transitions, graphics, filters, motion effects, and more in real time;
How new built-in color correction tools allow you to fine-tune the look of your footage with familiar waveform, histogram, and vectorscope tools once found only on expensive, dedicated hardware;
How Final Cut Pro 3 handles any format, from OfflineRT and DV (digital video) to SD (standard definition) and even HD (high definition);
How a new built-in voice-over tool lets you add a voice track to captured footage, in the field or in the studio;
How built-in compositing features let you create dreamlike effects;
How QuickTime technology allows you to integrate Final Cut Pro projects with just about all professional compositing, effects and 3D applications around;
How Final Cut Pro 3 runs on Mac OS X or Mac OS 9;
How Final Cut Pro 3 integrates with DVD Studio Pro.
Seating is limited. You can register at the
seminar Web site.
