LOTS OF NEW STUFF THIS WEEK!
Welcome back. I enjoy writing these newsletters because it gives me a chance to share a variety of interesting ideas with you. This week, I have four new articles, new announcements, an interesting featured interview, a very cool deal, and a really exciting upcoming event.
ANNOUNCING: "4K & FINAL CUT PRO X"
The video world is moving in two divergent directions at once. On one side is smaller cameras, smaller file sizes, and greater portability. On the other side are much larger image sizes and faster frame rates.
A lot is written about the new, smaller formats. But, when you step-up to higher resolutions, everything about your editing system gets pushed to the max. And your computer is the smallest part of the whole equation.
That's why I'm delighted to announce a brand-new, one-day seminar titled: "4K & Final Cut Pro X
." If you are getting ready to start a new project with higher-resolution video (2K, UltraHD, or 4K) you need to attend. Whether you are working at the high-end with RED, Sony, and Arri, or experimenting with lower-cost cameras from Panasonic or JVC, this seminar will help you avoid mistakes, find the right gear, and make your whole editing system a lot more efficient.
The event features presentations, panel discussions, and demos from industry leaders showing you exactly how FCP X is being used today, in the real-world, to import, manage and edit high-resolution video at the highest professional level.Click here to learn more

Thinking of webinars, our recent webinar on "Job Hunting and Survival in Today's Economy" was a great success. Lots of interest and questions. So much so that last week, we offered the entire webinar for only $9.99. However, that special offer expires today at midnight.
All of us are struggling with how to look for work, keep clients, negotiate better rates, and survive in this era of shorter deadlines and smaller budgets. As I mentioned in my Amsterdam speech, one of my goals is sharing skills and tips to help every editor find work. And this webinar can definitely help.

FEATURED BUZZ INTERVIEW
FOUR NEW ARTICLES THIS WEEK!
With the hacking last week of Adobe's website, all of us are thinking more about security. This week, on the Digital Production Buzz, we invited Matthew Green
, Assistant Research Professor at Johns Hopkins University to explain what we can do to improve security in the new world of Cloud-based services.

I have four new articles this week: a discussion on hard disk speeds that applies to all of us, a Final Cut article, a Premiere article, and a detailed product review on Sony Creative Software's SpectraLayers Pro 2.
Plus, I've updated all our Top 3 Lists. Enjoy.
Thoughts on Hard Disk Speeds
This blog started with a common question from a reader.
Simply connecting a hard disk via Thunderbolt does not mean you are getting blinding speeds. In fact, there is more at play and this article explains what contributes to the speed of a hard disk; and what you need to know to buy the right gear for your system.
Sony Creative Software's SpectraLayers Pro 2
SpectraLayers Pro 2, from Sony Creative Software, is an amazing audio utility.
This software allows you to remove sounds from an audio clip, without damaging other sounds.
However, it is not like any other audio software out there. Read this review to learn what the software does, where it fits into your workflow, and things to avoid when using it.
ARTICLE: PREMIERE PRO CC
Edit Point Trimming
Trimming is an essential part of editing - because it allows us to adjust where two clips touch.
For the last several versions, Adobe has been improving trimming to make it both faster and easier.
In this article, I illustrate the latest trimming features in Premiere Pro CC, along with a variety of ways to trim both audio and video clips in the Timeline.
ARTICLE: FINAL CUT PRO X
Creating a Circle Wipe to Color
This article, too, originated with a reader's question.
In this step-by-step tutorial, you'll learn how to create a soft-edged circle wipe to a full-screen color that matches one of the colors in a clip.
This is a cool effect, which is easy to create once you know how. This article teaches you how.
Learn Apple Compressor 4
Ultimately, all our projects end up on the web. Which means that if we don't know how to compress our video to make it look good, all our work during production and post is wasted.
In this in-depth video training, Larry Jordan shows you how to make the most of Apple Compressor 4.
Whether you are a new or experienced editor, this training will help you make your media look and sound great!
Here are the top three articles, webinars, and audio interviews for the past seven days.Articles
