One of our favorite – and most wide-ranging – sessions returns with “Ask Larry Anything!” Presented by Larry Jordan, this is a free-form conversation based on questions submitted by viewers.

This session answers more than two dozen questions covering:

  • Computer hardware
  • Software upgrades and issues
  • Apple Final Cut Pro
  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Video Compression

This also includes a detailed discussion on planning and optimizing storage for maximum performance.


These questions span a range from beginner to intermediate. Subjects change quickly, so if you aren’t interested in the current question, another will be along in a few minutes.
