hodgetts BOSCPUG

Grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit down and watch Philip Hodgetts present half an hour of how logging can be made easier by using his Lumberjack program. Lots to learn.

We featured Intelligent Assistance's logging program called Lumberjack when it was demoed by Philip at the recent LACPUG. This time he's on the East Coast and he takes us through a quick rundown of his products that are of interest to Final Cut Pro X editors, majoring on Producer's Best Friend and then Lumberjack.

Right from just two weeks after FCPX's release, Philip and Greg from Intelligent Assistance have been releasing applications that fill niches in workflow or utilities that make life easier.

In this presentation from the Emerson College in Boston, Philip puts Lumberjack to the test by conducting a live interview with Dan Bérubé, logging it on the fly and then importing the logging data into FCPX to perform a 'string out.' Pretty clever stuff and it will definitely save production time.

Lumberjack is currently in a private beta, but click here to request becoming part of the program.

Producer's Best Friend is an OS X application that takes FCPX timeline or event data and generates customisable reports in an Excel or Pages spreadsheet format.

Dan asked us to remind everybody that there is still €5 off the tickets for the Amsterdam SuperMeet by following our special link or using the code fcpcovip.
