Presented by Wes Plate - Automatic Duck
Automatic Duck Cofounder and President Wes Plate will drop by to demonstrate the industry's favorite latest timeline translation technology. Wes will show how FCP and Avid editing systems can coexist and work together: showing how to bring an Avid sequence into Final Cut Pro and a cool new way to translate a Final Cut Pro sequence into Avid Media Composer 5 and link up to FCP's media via AMA!
Wes Plate is the president and co-founder of Automatic Duck, Inc. During his early years as an Avid editor in Seattle, Wes was well known for his creative cutting and his editing speed. As the pressure for editors to add more effects grew, his desire to streamline his workflow led Wes to found Automatic Duck in 2001. Automatic Duck continues to create popular and industry-leading timeline translation plug-ins for users of industry-standard NLE and compositing systems, including Avid, Final Cut Pro, and Adobe After Effects.
8:15pm: The FCP File-Based Workflow
Gary Adcock - Production and Post Workflow Consultant
Doug Hynes - AV3 Software
Kai Pradel - MediaSilo
Been seeing a lot more files and a lot less tape lately? Join Gary Adcock, AV3 Software, MediSilo and Apple to learn how to ingest and work with the most common file based formats: Apple Pro Res, RED, XDCam, P2, ARRI and Canon EOS DSLR's. Gary will lead a discussion exploring many FCP media best practices as well as considerations and benefits of various formats and workflows. Another impact of tapeless acquisition is more footage shot and therefore more to screen and log. Doug Hynes will highlight the AV3 "Get" application that allows for automated, phonetic cataloging and searching of your tapeless assets. "Get" allows for faster location of topical content to meet editorial needs and ever tightening deadlines. Also on hand will be Kai Pradel of MediaSilo to feature how tapeless media can be rapidly made available for screening, and review and approval with their web browser based collaboration tool as well as their iPad App for mobility. Tapeless end to end.
