[prMac.com] Agoura Hills, CA - Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc. announced GeeThree, developers of the SlickFX series of products, as a sponsor of the Larry Jordan's inaugural webinar, "Prepping and Working with Still Images in Final Cut Pro."
"Nothing drives editors more nuts than working with stills," said Larry Jordan, president of Larry Jordan & Associates, "because computers display images using square pixels and video uses rectangles. GeeThree has created some great new software that makes importing and manipulating still images fast and easy... and, best of all, fun."
GeeThree, a Silicon Valley startup, is the creator of the SlickFX plug-ins for Final Cut, Slick Transitions & Effects for iMovie HD, and other handy products for the Macintosh. GeeThree products have garnered numerous awards, including a 3 time win of the prestigious "Best of Show" honor from Macworld Magazine. The company's founders are former Apple product marketing and engineering executives with more than 10 years of experience creating and marketing Macintosh products, including the original PowerBook and PowerPC systems. GeeThree believes in creating simple and elegant products to make life better for Mac users.
Keeping editing skills sharp is critical, but finding the time to do so is hard. For this reason, Jordan decided to take his popular PowerUP Tutorials for Final Cut to the web. Now, "All you need is a web browser and an hour of time," said Jordan.
Just as in Jordan's live seminars, each one-hour interactive webinar presentation provides time for Jordan to respond to attendees' most challenging technical questions. Combining video presentation with an interactive chat forum, Jordan can provide detailed, personalized solutions to questions. Participants can watch and listen as Jordan demonstrates each issue, providing solutions to common problems.
In the "Prepping and Working with Still Images in Final Cut Pro" webinar, Jordan will cover why it is so hard to get stills to look good, why users need to worry about pixel aspect ratio, what the best size is to create stills, what if anything has changed with the release of Photoshop CS5, why Photoshop documents (PSD) are handled differently, and much more.
As a bonus, by attending the webinar, all participants in "Prepping and Working with Still Images in Final Cut Pro" get 20% off GeeThree products. Early registration is encouraged to hold one of the limited number of seats available. Pricing ranges from $29 to $49 (USD) per event.
