Tomorrow marks the two-week anniversary of the Final Cut Pro X launch -- it seems a lot longer ago than that, somehow.
Tempers have cooled, but, based on my emails, the sense of deep personal loss remains.
On Friday, I sent an email to my contacts at Apple asking if they would post a timetable of updates to FCP X, or whether they were considering bringing Final Cut Studio (3) to the market.
I write this newsletter on Sunday night and, as I type this, there's been no answer. I've learned this is Apple's way of saying "No" without actually saying "No."
Which means we each need to make a choice. I wrote my latest blog about this -- called "Moving Forward
" -- if you want my current recommendations.

I've spent the weekend working on the content and demos for our upcoming Final Cut Pro X training seminar
. I've written an 28-page detailed workbook, which you'll get free, along with a very cool mousepad covered with great keyboard shortcuts.
I highly recommend this one-day session if you are the least bit curious about this new software.
I'll show you how it works, how to make it work better, plus give you step-by-step instructions on ways to edit, trim, and create effects.
All our seminars are fun and filled with solid, useful information. This one is especially so because we have a lot of great companies showing their latest products and talking about how they fit into a FCP X workflow.
Come, see for yourself. Discover how Final Cut Pro X can work with your projects. Spend a bit of time and get all your questions answered.Click here to register
