This issue, I look at trimming with three different articles covering trimming inside Final Cut Pro X. Trimming is the process of adjusting where two clips touch and, I think, it is even more important than placing clips into the Timeline.

The Cloud is becoming ever more important to production and editing, though making in-roads into editing is taking longer.  Last week and next week, the Digital Production Buzz is looking at Cloud-based collaboration and production services. You'll find more details below.

Last week's webinar - "Ask Larry Anything" - was great fun. We had hundreds of people attending and managed to answer 42 questions between the two sessions. We created two separate webinars, one for each presentation. Each session is unique and they are ONLY available in our Video Training Library. If you aren't a member yet, this is a great time to join.

Thinking about learning new things, if you are planning to go to NAB this year, we have a free ticket for you. Just click this banner and sign up.  NAB is always a fun show - exhausting, way too big, and noisy - but fun.

As always, I love to hear from you and I'll be back next week with another issue, and, hopefully some words about the future. Chat then.

This week, we look at Cloud-based collaboration! Larry talks with Cirina Catania, Melissa Davies-Barnett and George Olver.

Ask Larry Anything
This webinar is one of my favorites; a free-form Q&A session answering questions supplied by the audience.

We had two separate presentations, so we created two different movies - each with unique content.

The 9AM session discussed 25 questions, while the 12PM covered 17.

These two sessions are only available in our Video Training Library; which means now is a perfect time to join.

Webinars On Hiatus
Webinars are taking a break for a couple of weeks, but I don't think they are going away.

Details are still being worked out and I hope to announce a permanent solution in the next couple of weeks.

For now, take advantage of the current titles in our store, or become a member of our Video Training Library. Either way, you win.
