Free Monthly Final Cut Studio Newsletter Interacts with Social Media

Larry Jordan, digital media analyst and world-renowned Final Cut Studio expert and teacher, just released the December edition of his free monthly Final Cut Studio newsletter. Published each month for the last six years, each issue is packed with valuable techniques, tips, product reviews, responses to reader questions and the latest industry news. Containing 40 pages, the December issue is designed to help editors get the most out of Final Cut.

“One of the things that makes my newsletter really fun for me,” said Larry Jordan, “is the dialog that we have with our readers in the pages of the newsletter. Readers add their ideas and workarounds, correct each other, and bring a whole new level of content to each issue. Reader Mail has been a part of the newsletter since the beginning. Now, we are incorporating comments from our friends on Facebook and Twitter as well.”

One of the most popular articles in this month’s issue is, “The World-Famous Unknown Thingy,” which describes a specific button inside the application that, it seems, everyone wonders about and no one understands.

Each issue is free, but subscriptions are encouraged (
