An odd combination, but one when you read the article below, all will become clear. We post the pictures from the first Faster Together event in Las Vegas and post a free Final Cut Pro X plugin that was used for the quick-turnaround edits on the night.

The 9th of April 2019 will be remembered for the first, one night Faster Together presentation during NAB in Las Vegas. I think it is safe to say that it exceeded everyone's expectations.

Great presenters, good support from the commercial partners outside the hall, a teary moment with Michael Horton and the excellent food didn't run out!

Although the presentation videos will not be ready to post right away, we can give you an idea of the night by posting the many pictures during the evening that we took.

Also as a bonus, Chris Fenwick was editing interviews from attendees that were then played in to the auditorium. At the top of every insert, a custom plugin designed by Alex Gollner was used.

You can download the Faster Together Opener plugin for FCPX here.

Now let's see those photos!

Fitting that the big prize went to the students who had helped with the show.
