Erica Brenner: Erica Brenner, after spending 20 years in the audio recording business serving the classical music world, added video to her services 7 years ago at the request of her client, Apollo's Fire Baroque Orchestra here in Cleveland. A dedicated Final Cut Pro X user - a rarity these days! - she really loves the multi-cam interface and the editing capabilities and flexibility of the "connected clips" approach FCPX employs. The demo for CDPUG will be looking at possibilities to increase the performance and reduce the lag of multi-cam editing, which can often involved 4, 6 or even 12 camera angles in her work.
