Also, time permitting, a classic animation from the early days of sound film.ABOUT JAY ROSE

8:20PM: Ben King, "Loader for Final Cut Pro"
Editor and graphic designer Ben King
will join us via iChat AV from the UK to give us a useful look at the new helper app for Final Cut Pro, Loader
, from Digital Heaven. Loader makes importing easy, fast and organised so you can spend time on editing rather than file management. Loader is the smart way to import music, sound effects, graphics and movies into Final Cut Pro. Simply drag items from iTunes or the Finder over the Loader tab and it slides out to reveal a list of currently open Final Cut Pro projects. Drop the items onto the desired project and Loader first copies the files to a dedicated folder then imports the copied files into Final Cut Pro.ABOUT BEN KINGBen King

Ben attended the University of Bristol to study "Design for Film & Television: Video Graphics & Animation" where he learned Compositing using Quantel Paintbox and Adobe After Effects, editing using linear suites controlled by the likes of the SONY BVE-9000 series and on Non-Linear edit suites including LightWorks.
As both an offline and online editor Ben has used Avid since 1994 and the world's most prolific edit software Final Cut Pro since its very first release in 1999.
