Jan. 11, 2016

The new year has started, CES just finished and its time to move forward after the holidays. I have four new articles for you this week; including two think-pieces on CES and Storage Visions, both events that I found fascinating for similar reasons: they are totally focused on the future.

By the way, there is a difference, to me, between my tutorial articles and my opinion pieces. Tutorials are found here and are fully searchable. However, when an article is more opinion, I post it as a blog and my blogs are found here. Surprisingly, blogs don't show up when you search my website. Why? Ah, search me... I don't know. Which is why I'm mentioning this difference here.

Its also time to restart our Wednesday Webinars, so this Wednesday I'm featuring Media Management in Final Cut Pro X.

At CES, I stopped by the DisplayPort booth for an in-depth discussion of USB-C, the latest USB connector and format. DisplayPort delivers more high-performance features than any other digital interface. Designed to replace older standards like DVI and VGA, DisplayPort opens up new possibilities in computing, digital displays and consumer electronics. Cool stuff - learn more here.

I also want to encourage you to become a member of our Video Training Library. More then 1,400 movies - all instantly accessible, and all for an extremely low  price. Learn more here.

Enjoy your week and remember to sign up for our FREE webinar this Wednesday. See you then.

The Latest on DisplayPort

DisplayPort drives monitors, while Thunderbolt is a two-fer: it supports  DisplayPort, as well as data transfers between storage and a computer.

USB-C is the latest, and thinnest, connector that supports DisplayPort. The big news is that USB-C with DisplayPort is fast enough to drive the largest monitors - the only gotcha is the graphics card powering the transfer. Not all graphics cards have the horsepower to support all monitors.

Learn more at the DisplayPort website.
Larry's Webinars are Moving

We've made the decision to only release new webinars into our Video Training Library. However, our live shows are always free to everyone.

With over 1,400 movies - hundreds of hours - to choose from, our Library is the most comprehensive resource on media production and post.

We don't cover everything, just everything important to media.
Join today. Discover everything you want to learn, all in one place.
This was a wild show - audio, festivals and dead drives - as Larry and Mike talked with: Zack Allen, Wendy Woodhall and Chris Bross.

Discover Media Management in Final Cut Pro X
I get more questions about media management in Final Cut than any other subject. So, this week, we'll cover:

* Where to store media
* How to import and organize media
* How to move libraries, media and projects
* When files should be stored in a library or referenced separately
* How to consolidate libraries
* How to change library preference settings
* How to change where media and render files are stored

Wednesday webinars are always free, but limited to the first  200 attendees.
