Good news from our friends at the American Forces Radio & Television
service this month. We've enjoyed a long relationship with the
video production team at the AFTS news agency and they let us know they
renewed their library license to our training for another 12 months.
giving holiday cheer
We had an early Christmas present from Pinnacle this year.
Earlier in the month we were called by their head of e-commerce
sales to ask if they could do a special promotion with our
Studio training titles for the holidays. We said “er,
the result is a fantastic deal on a complete bundle of Studio
products. If you’re fed up with editing your friends
and family videos and want to let others find out how much
fun you have at work each day, this is a great starter package.

We’re pleased to announce we have signed an agreement
with Digi-box in the UK to be our master distributor in Europe...

the trail of CS4 our latest title by Sue Jenkins, Designer's

Holtz Holiday Wishes
night before Christmas and all through our place
We’re running around at a fever-pitch pace.
Our CS4 title is flying off the shelves
Making plenty of work for Paul and his elves.
2008 was a fantastic year
We added more titles and lovely new gear.
Like prompters and cameras you know the drill
And oh, for our kitchen, a shiny new grill.
We signed up new dealers all over the place,
Like Boston and Bangkok, even outer space.
Delivering fine training and courses bespoke;
We especially like dealing with that nice English bloke.
Again we were called in by Omneon.
Their FSE training drones on and on.
We captured it all while staying awake
We wonder if they’ll notice the audio’s fake.
We attended a tradeshow and caused such a fuss,
As delegates came to us all in a rush.
To pick up a title at fantastic prices,
that paid for Paul’s trip and some of his vices.
We’d like to say thank you to all of our users,
the emails you send us do surely amuse us
On Eric, on Colleen, on Michael, Kat, Paul
For 2009 requires training for all.

Tom's Tip | Audio
or Video Only from the Viewer to the Timeline
Final Cut Pro, you can drag only the audio
or video portion of a clip you're trimming
inside the viewer directly to the timeline.
First, mark your in and out points in the
viewer. Next, right-click in the scrubber
bar and select Clear Split>Audio Marks
or Video Marks. Then drag it onto the timeline.
Only the video or the audio will go where
you place it.
