Agenda (subject to change)

6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join Gurus
 Monica Daniel, Adam Bedford and Michael Kammas as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCS and FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro and anything else you can think of. If they can't solve your problem or answer your question, then you go home with a problem, but you still got out of the house, so that's not a bad thing.

7:20PM - 7:30PM - "Producers Best Friend and Change List X - Philip Hodgetts
Philip Hodgetts returns to show off the latest from Intelligent Assistance"Producer's Best Friend." PBF creates a formatted .xls spreadsheet report (for Numbers, Excel etc.) about the video clips, audio clips, markers, keywords, effects and transitions you've used in Final Cut Pro X (10.0.6 or later). Producer’s Best Friend reports on Clips in an Event, Compound Clip or Project timelines. Avery report from FCP X in a familiar spreadsheet with no copy/paste. Instead of a huge burden, generating clip, stock or music reports is a snap, taking minutes instead of days. It eliminates "Clip Reporting Hell." 
If time allows, Philip will show Change List X because "Final is never Final".
