The Amsterdam SuperMeet will further celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of SuperMeets and promises to be the single largest gathering of Final Cut, Adobe, Avid and Autodesk editors, gurus and digital filmmakers IBC2011.

"I'm excited to join the SuperMeet cast and crew once again in Amsterdam," states Wohl, who has recently authored two books on Final Cut Pro X for Peachpit Press, the Visual QuickPro Guide (co-authored with Lisa Brenneis) and Apple Pro Training Series: Advanced Final Cut Pro X. Wohl has also just released over 15 hours of training videos on Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5 for MacProVideo.com. "There's a lot of myths circulating in the industry as to what Final Cut Pro X can and cannot do," states Wohl. "That's my focus at the SuperMeet, to clear up the confusion about what Final Cut Pro X editors can do now."
Also featured on stage will be the welcome return of Jason Levine, Worldwide Evangelist for Adobe. Levine will showcase "Adobe Premiere Pro 5.5 for Final Cut Pro editors."
Avid will also return on stage with a very special guest editor from Hollywood who will talk about Avid workflow and show off the latest version of Media Composer.

SuperMeets are gatherings of Final Cut, Adobe, Avid and Autodesk editors, gurus and digital filmmakers from within the US, Europe and the world over who use or want to learn to use Macintosh-based workflows and solutions in a collaborative workflow environment. Final Cut Pro User Groups (FCPUG) started as a grassroots movement to connect Apple Final Cut Pro Editors at a local level. Now in its 10th year, the producers behind the SuperMeet have harnessed the energy of local chapters globally and turned SuperMeets into the industry's most influential user-organized series of global events. SuperMeets are held annually in San Francisco, Austin, Las Vegas, Amsterdam, London and Boston. The SuperMeet agenda usually includes user driven demos of new products, digital video tips and tricks and filmmaker show and tells, including a SuperMeet Digital Showcase featuring hardware and software developers providing workflow solutions for digital filmmakers and content creators.
