Two reasons for posting this article. The first is to publicise the upcoming MacVideo Expo next week in London on the 18th. The second is to remind you that you can get a free listing for your event in our community section, it will even appear on our front page!

Let's get the promotion bit out of the way first. In our community section you can start a group and once you've done that you can post events to the calendar. - Take a look at this post about the MacVideo Expo.

So if you are running a Final Cut Pro user group or organising an event that you think will be of interest, you can get instant free publicity right here. Has to be relevant to our readers though!

On to MacVideo Expo...

We publish the videos from MacVideo by kind permission of Rick Young so we thought we would give his upcoming event a bit of a plug, we're probably going to attend ourselves.
