A mere month ago to predict the end of FCP might have been extremist, but the concern was understandable. FCPs main competitors, AVID and Adobe, had been making steady gains, and some significant leaps forward, while FCP seemed to be, well, wallowing. While AVID became more open (working with non-AVID codecs like ProRes), which seemed unimaginable for AVID, and Adobe made the leap to 64-bit, made Premiere more FCP-like, and actively (and successfully) wooed FCP editors into their fold, what was Apple up to? Well, Apple released a new iPhone, the iPad, talked about the iOS and killed the XServe and XServe RAID. As a member of this forum you would have read about how Apple had engineers hard at work and was product-testing a new version of FCP, but any reader could be forgiven for skepticism and despair.

With the launch of the new Calgary FCPUG website we are introducing a new Meetings and Events section. Watch that section for not only announcements of the next Calgary FCPUG meetings, but also other events members might be interested in attending.

We are continuing to develop this new section to make it a powerful tool to let members know where they want to be!

That's right, the Calgary FCPUG has a new shiny website! While we're sure you saw that as soon as you arrived, you may not know that the CGYFCPUG has taken over the forums!
