Red Giant Software, publishers and developers of iPhone apps and software tools, will host free Final Cut Pro SuperMeet workshops as part of the Third Annual Amsterdam FCPUG SuperMeet, to be held on Sunday, Sept. 12, at the Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, in the heart of Amsterdam in Dam Square.
The training will consist of three separate identical sessions to take place during the day prior to the SuperMeet, which will be the largest gathering of Final Cut Pro, Avid and Adobe editors, DSLR filmmakers, digital media makers and Gurus during IBC2010.
Apple Certified Master Trainer Simon Walker will demonstrate how to quickly stylize shots, store favorite looks and tools, remove color casts and make primary and secondary corrections. Simon will also show how to use power masks and keyers to isolate areas, boost visual sharpness, smooth skin and repair cosmetic blemishes as well as adding instant Hollywood looks to footage whilst maintaining accurate flesh tones. All this without having to send footage to another program for grading. And by staying within Final Cut Pro, editors can copy color grades to multiple clips, and still edit footage right up to delivery.
Walker will also be demonstrating the new Magic Bullet Colorista II, Magic Bullet Grinder, Magic Bullet Looks and Magic Bullet Mojo, and will reveal how editors can work with presets to create grades in seconds. He’ll also be demonstrating DSLR workflows using Magic Bullet Grinder, which helps filmmakers get video footage out of their cameras and into their Final Cut Pro timeline fast, but at high quality and in edit friendly formats.
Additionally, Walker will be showing a first look at Red Giant’s latest plug-in, which the company will be announcing at IBC. Attendees to each session receive free presets for Magic Bullet Looks and a special IBC discount code for Red Giant plug-ins.
