It's quite simple. Stop what you are doing, make a large coffee and watch these two videos. Never before has Randy Ubillos, the creator of the original Final Cut Pro and FCPX, gone into so much detail about the history of NLE software development. We publish the two part recording of Randy's chat with Michael Horton at the recent LACPUG 18th birthday anniversary meeting.

We would assume by now if you have been a regular reader of FCP.co, that you would know about Randy Ubillos and how he shaped the development of NLEs over the past two decades.

If you haven't then let us highlight that Randy was instrumental at the beginning of Premiere, Final Cut Pro and FCPX. If that's not enough, he also designed iMovie and Aperture.

At the recent 18th anniversary meeting of the Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group, Michael Horton sat down with Randy and discussed how he had been instrumental in designing software products  that we have used and are still using to this day.

And here is part two! 

A big thank you to Randy and of course Michael Horton who does a great job organising the monthly meetings.
