One of Larry Jordan’s favorite sessions returns with “Ask Larry Anything.” This is a free-form conversation about, well, anything you want to ask. This session includes technical questions about:

  • The Mac
  • Visual Literacy
  • Apple Compressor
  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Apple Motion
  • Apple Final Cut Pro

These sessions are always interesting because there is always new stuff to learn!


These questions span the range from beginner to advanced. However, as no one answer takes very long, be patient and the subject will change. Every editor using Apple software can benefit from this session.
