“Final Cut Studio 2 is exciting, however with so many new features, it may be difficult for editors to find the time to learn it on their own,” said Jordan. “That's where our seminars can help. They are concentrated training. We give you the guidance you need to pick the right hardware, optimize your system, and then make the most of it — all in a fast-paced, entertaining, and informative way.”
Jordan will be in Washington, DC for two days, presenting “Setting Up & Troubleshooting Your Hardware” and “Optimize Your Editing with Final Cut” on October 22, 2007, and “Mastering Final Cut Studio” on October 23, 2007. All seminars will be presented at the Marriott Courtyard Washington Embassy Row.
The four-hour “Setting Up & Troubleshooting Your Hardware” covers the optimum computer configuration for Final Cut editing, which additional audio and video gear one needs, selecting the right hard disk or RAID, optimizing one’s hardware, discovering the special challenges of working with HDV, understanding what the different video formats mean and why what one doesn't know can ruin a project, and learning what hardware one needs to run Color.
“Optimize Your Editing with Final Cut” is specially designed for novice and self-taught Final Cut Pro users to help them get better organized and edit more efficiently in four hours. “Mastering Final Cut Studio” is an eight-hour immersion that delves into Apple’s new software, Color; audio mixing and improving the quality of projects in Soundtrack Pro 2; and new effects in Final Cut Pro 6 and Motion 3. In every seminar, Jordan will designate ample time for answering the attendees’ hardest technical questions to provide them personalized solutions.
Optimizing Final Cut Studio and Pick the Right Hardware are priced at $119. Mastering Final Cut Studio is priced at $249 dollars per person. Optimize and Hardware together is priced at $219. Optimize or Hardware with Mastering is priced at $349. All three seminars are priced at $449. Every seminar includes take-home workbooks and other valuable editing tools.
