FCG028 – Leaving the Big Stupid Agency (feat. Charles Silverman)

With a looming deadline and unending blue render bars, Charles knew he needed to move past Final Cut Classic and on to FCPX. Amazingly enough even though he had a huge job for an important client… he made the jump.
From early Flash development Charles developed a fascination with video as a communication medium. Originally Charles wasn’t sure that he had much to share with this audience but the history that we discuss about the origins of Flash as a web tool is a fun walk down the memory lane of the “information super highway”

The lack of “a recognition of prior learning” is one of the disadvantages of using FCPX and yet, on Alister Robbie’s first FCPX just 3 days into his edit he found himself 4 days ahead of schedule. Alister has PLENTY to say and shares his virtually pre-release experience with Final Cut Pro 1.0 back in 1999 all the way to FCPX.
