While I functioned as the producer and driving force behind RubyNation’s video production effort, I had only limited editing experiencer with Final Cut Pro. Nick Sieger’s video on “Rails: The Killer Java Web Stack,” is the first conference video that I was 100% responsible for from beginning to end.
My new toy just arrived, compliments of Amazon.com: Final Cut Express. So, I’m now armed and dangerous when it comes to video editing. OK, ok, so it’s not Final Cut Pro, but it’s got a solid subset of features for video editing (and it was MUCH cheaper), and I’m working with two other editors who have Final Cut Pro (so they can do the extra heavy lifting if needed). Onwards to the editing of RubyNation conference content!
