The San Francisco Bay Area Avid User’s Group hosts Nicholas C. Smith (A.C.E.) as guest speaker on January 9th, 2007, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm (at Avid/Digidesign in Daly City):
"Nicholas C. Smith’s editing credits include Underclassman, 40 Days and 40 Nights, Monkeybone, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Cars, The Secret Garden, The War of the Roses, Spaceballs, and The Possession. Nicholas is an employee of Pixar and is an Avid user, (Yes, even at Pixar use Avid for their feature length projects)."
Avid has had some good tutorials, blog entires, and podcasts but a good number of them seem to be missing as the company makes a transition. The FreshHDV video on ScriptSync from NAB2007 is still available though.
Update: The Editblog notes a post by A.C.E. Avid editor Harry B. Miller III on his experience with Final Cut (comments too).
Update 2: The Editblog notes Avid HD Resource Documents.
