The Supermeet is coming to London in June. It's always fun at these events, plus you get a chance to meet and hang out with other FCP editors and production types. They've got the legendary raffle with some fantastic prizes (including, er, me!), and they've also got some great speakers lined up. I'll also be presenting, showing something new and special by Red Giant Software... so check out the details over on the Supermeet website.
UPDATE: Larry answered MANY of the current burning FCPX questions at the Supermeet. The video of his presentation will be up on MacVideo.tv (from Monday 27th June)
Here's a tutorial I've just made for Red Giant Software, using two of their grading plug-ins; Colorista II and Magic Bullet Looks to correct and grade a timeline quickly.
