Rather ironic that there are two stories here on FCP.co that feature the two big NLE's that ruled editing before Final Cut Pro was released. After looking at Avid's precarious situation, it was good to find Editshare have published 10 new video tutorials for Lightworks 11.
Today brought more news from Avid that things are not too rosy in Burlington Massachusetts for the one time pioneer of NLEs. They are selling off the consumer M-Audio brand and more incredibly their consumer editing apps including Avid Studio for the iPad.
What would have been a few busy days post LAFCPUG meeting turned out to be a quiet few days for FCPX news. Time for a game for a Friday, standby all you editors and colorists who think they are good with colour!
Everybody loves Drobo, but they've been a bit quiet with new products recently and have been overtaken by other storage manufacturers. Things might change, they've just announced two new products, the 5D and the Mini.
A mix of excitement and disappointment after this year's Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco this year. The new MacBook Pro with a retina display running an updated Final Cut Pro looks gorgeous, but same form factor MacPros without Thunderbolt are a bit of a letdown.

When software bills itself as 'The only truly professional shot listing app' it's worth a look to see if it lives up to the hype. Shotlister runs on your iOS device of choice and it's also half price at $9.99 for a week.
Another great product that uses Thunderbolt technology. This $249 docking station from Matrox will allow you to connect your display & peripherals to any Mac with a Thunderbolt connector. MacBook Air edit kit on the road anybody?
