LAPPG’s 11th Anniversary Meeting

We will be featuring two informative presentations, valuable networking time, delicious refreshments, a huge giveaway and a fun celebration!

 

LUMBERJACK BUILDER 2.0

Philip Hodgetts will demonstrate Lumberjack Builder, a unique text driven NLE for Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X. Builder picks up where transcription services finish. He will show how Builder creates stories from text ranges out of multiple transcripts. Stories can be read as text or played as video! There are comprehensive (but optional) logging tools for adding Keywords to Text Ranges.

In Builder you order transcripts in the app, or bring your own transcripts, and use the transcripts to drive the video and audio edit. Builder has fully featured Logging tools, including the world’s only Keyword Manager, and text correction tools in the Logging Window. In the Story Building view, Builder has comprehensive filtering so you can find the perfect sound bite quickly and easily. Selects go into a Storyline script. You can read the script, edit the text and play the video as the story develops. Export preliminary sequences for finishing in Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro X.

PHILIP HODGETTS is an expert in content metadata, particularly how it is applied to derive production metadata in post workflows for organization and pre-editing, with a prior history in knowledge system development. He is the President and CEO of two companies: Lumberjack System, an innovator in acquiring and using content metadata, and Intelligent Assistance Software, Inc, a technology developer specializing in metadata-enabled, XML-integrated workflows. He is the author of several books and has been a keynote speaker at many conferences. He is a thought leader in the application of Artificial Intelligence to production workflows.
