Another tool in the toolbox.

Final Cut ProWell, I finally did it. This evening I ran down to the Apple Store in Tyson's Corner and picked up my very own copy of Final Cut Pro 4. The reason? I need to do a very short "talking head" Dreamsbay commercial for some friends of mine. I'll see if I can post the final production somewhere – I have some ideas as to what I want to do, but I don't have a lot of time. Let's see what rabbits this beauty can pull out of its hat.

Surefire sign that this software is the real deal: its manual comes in four books. No wonder the box was so bloody heavy. Oh, and to any naysayers who wonder why I didn't just pick up Final Cut Express: Soundtrack. And besides, I want to have FCP on my resume. It never hurts to have more marketable skills. (Especially in this economy.)


Okay, one, I'm jealous. We're still butting heads with "the man" to get the upgrade here. And two, if you need any help, give me a call... I'm pretty good with a video camera, you know.

You are so getting a phone call.
