[] Agoura Hills, CA - Automatic Duck, the creators of timeline integration software for digital media artists, has signed on as a silver level sponsor for Larry Jordan's 2008 PowerUP with Final Cut Studio seminar tour, which visits 14 cities across North America, September 8 through November 8, 2008.

Larry Jordan, president of Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc., will be presenting three seminars in each city: "Succeeding in the New World of Tapeless & HD Video," "Integrating Adobe Products into a Final Cut Workflow," and "Discover the Hidden Power in Final Cut Studio." Scheduled locations include: Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver, and Washington D.C.

"Automatic Duck is a natural partner for our seminar tour," said Jordan. "Products such as Pro Import AE, Pro Import FCP and Pro Export FCP provide great value to our attendees by tackling Final Cut Pro workflow. This is especially timely as we are demonstrating in our seminars how to integrate Adobe products, like After Effects, within a Final Cut Pro workflow. Automatic Duck is essential for that."

The PowerUP with Final Cut Studio seminar series is targeted to both new and experienced Final Cut Studio editors interested in enhancing their skills. In every seminar, Jordan designates ample time for answering challenging technical questions to provide detailed, personalized solutions. Sessions include take-home workbooks, valuable editing tools, sponsor-provided giveaways, and an automatic entry into the PowerUP raffle to win a new Macbook Pro at the end of the tour.

Jordan also acknowledges the support of the Tour's platinum sponsor Adobe Systems Incorporated, gold sponsors Blackmagic Design, Media Distributors and The Rental Station, and silver sponsor SmartSound Software, Inc.
