SF Cutters 9th Anniversary March 17th (free)

The SF Cutters 9th Anniversary Meeting is on March 17th at Adobe in San Francisco. RSVP is required; seating is limited so this event will sell out. Full details and registration can be found here. Doors open at 6:30; arrive early for refreshments. Presentations include:

Kim Salyer & Video Arts team: Beijing Olympics Adidas Spiral Theatre, Coca Cola Pavilion

Blackmagic Design: "How Blackmagic Design makes the vital connections - a basic 101 - what cards and devices to use, what different workflows require."

Frank Colin of Equilibrium Sneak Preview: "New Service for Monetizing Content on Any Website"

Adobe Systems' Simon Hayhurst & Karl Soule: "64-bit optimization in Adobe CS4." CS4 Production Premium has been partially re-architected for 64-bit operating systems to use large memory more effectively (up to 20GB of memory for Premiere Pro alone, up to 64GB of memory for a large Production Premium workflow). Benefits include:
  • Faster editing performance in Premiere Pro, especially when working with high resolution files.
  • Better multi-core rendering and longer RAM previews in After Effects.
  • Run multiple Production Premium components simultaneously, and leverage new integration like Dynamic Link to move content between them.
  • Projects can scale further in resolution and complexity, taking advantage of the additional available memory.
Raffle prizes for the event (you must be present) include a copy of Production Premium donated by Adobe.
