November 9th, 2011 Meeting

It was a nice mixture of new and old members at Wednesday’s November meeting. Rorke Data engineer Daryl Heinis and Account Development Manager Teresa McPherson presented their award winning integrated file based workflow solution called Strawberry. Darryl took us on a tour of this powerful software including project management, project sharing, asset database and searching, team management and a morphing file system. Strawberry enables the same type of bin locking and media sharing as Unity, but brings this to Adobe and FCP as well as Avid. We could see why this was a Pick Hit Award Winner at IBC this year!

Then everybody was very interested in hearing from Will Pisnieski, VP of Post Production at Authentic Entertainment as he discussed Authentic’s plan to transition away from traditional DVCPro tape to a completely file based workflow. He spoke about his research into FCPX and how they are exploring abandoning their Final Cut Pro workflow that they’ve spent the past 10 years developing. Attendees got to pick Will’s brain and learn from all the experience he’s garnered overseeing Authentic Entertainment’s 45 Final Cut Pro edit bays with upto 35 editors and 10 online editors each accessing hundreds of hours of reality footage from a 175TB San Server.
