Hey! That's my birthday!

I don't suppose I could get a copy as a birthday present from Newtek?

I mean it would be a great publicity stunt!

Bay Area Video Coalition (home to the SF LW user group) would be honored to host NewTek's launch party in San Francisco.

Please let me know if there is any interest.

What? No preview location for the Cleveland, Ohio area?? I'm disappointed!! I know of at least 6 members of the computer club I belong to that would go. [I know its not that many, but hey, our club only has 20 members at present!!]

This is great news, but I wouldn't order any balloons till I saw a statement with the word 'Shipping' in it.

I second Cleveland. You can count on at least another three I know of if we had something here.

We need a Boston event there Phillip. It's much to far from anyone in the North East to drive to NYC.

John Perkins
09-03-2006, 05:17 PM
Where is the San Antonio event?

I say lets trash, um I mean USE, Philips house ;)

I feal sorry for those outside of the US. Are there ever any events held in international locations?

pnelson
09-04-2006, 09:01 AM
We just had a Boston event.. Siggraph..:)

For international events, we do those at different times. I'll actually be in Japan in November.

Well, Shezam! I'll be on an Alaskan Cruise then and my wife would kill me if I cancelled!!! And one of the evnts will be in Dallas! Don't suppose you'd reset the date..... to before the 22nd or after the 29th?

Oh, well, maybe someone will videotape it for me - sigh.

Could a recording of the presentation be made and posted up on NewTek's site so that "we" can all see the launch announcement?

Bog

Where's the Reading event, then? ;)

I'll second the San Antonio even. c'mon Phil....you're the one who demoed Lightwave for me all those years ago... It only makes sense you do the same with Speed Edit.

I wish we could do more events and hit more cities.

WE are considering streaming at least one of the launch events to allow everyone to get in on the action. :)

Hey all --

NewTek has made the decision to postpone the SpeedEDIT launch from September 27 to sometime in late October (yes, grumbles from some, but I did see some of the group wishing it was later:)). Pushing out the launch to next month will allow us to add a few requested key features, as well as few additional enhancements. We don't yet have a specific reschedule date for the launch events yet, but as soon as we do we'll let you all know. As always, thanks for all of your comments and support! It's all appreciated. See you in October!

A demo! great! I was going to post/mail asking for a demo...

From what I saw on IBC it looked great, and speedy ( ;) ), but having bitten by marketing claims in the past, and ended up with a wobbly & sluggish product in my hands, I now plain prefer to get prolongued hands on experience before I indulge my itching wallet...

So demo-news is good news to me :)

pnelson
09-13-2006, 06:29 PM
Dragon,

Thanks for coming to IBC! SpeedEDIT was a hit with the clients there. I'm excited that you like what you saw so far.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

alvin_cgi
09-14-2006, 01:04 AM
How about some more updates news/info/features on SpeedEdit website? So we can read it now while waiting for its official release!:agree:

pnelson
09-14-2006, 06:59 AM
Alvin,

It's being worked on and should be up soon.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Gladly dropped by just to hear/see the stuff coming/out now...

Really missed a Newtek presence on IBC 2005, was kind of a hassle to explain to some conference-companions on why newtek was not represented, while the other boys (Discreet/Alias etc.) were...

But luckily this year I urged some to drop by and peek at the stand, and see what the mythological VideoToaster all could do in its modern form.
(some of us hail from the Amiga era, where the VT was described in grand tales from a far off NTSC land :) )

Will there be a downloadble demo? Yes or No. If yes, when? (please don't use the word soon, as you guys have worn out that word)

pnelson
09-21-2006, 08:18 AM
The good news is that we WILL have a demo version of SpeedEDIT! It will be available shortly after the release of the product.

I hate waiting too. ;) I'm the king of the impulse buy.

I'm looking for more synonyms for the word "soon". :)

Sorry..

Couldn't resist.

For those of us who purchased the VT5 upgrade with a copy of speededit, are we going to have the oportunity to download speededit when it is launched or are we going to have to wait for our dealer to hand us a CD?

pnelson
09-21-2006, 02:08 PM
Cholo,

We are still working out the details. I guess it depends on the final size of the delivered product. I'll keep you posted.

I just spoke with Newtek. They said SpeedEdit would be out by the end of the month. I said, "Maybe, if, perhaps, sort of." They agreed.

The new official launch party date is November 14. Not sure if that is the same date they will ship SE, but that's the date we're having our party at Excalibur.

Actually... It's November 14th...... 2006.. :)

See you there!

steveg
10-13-2006, 02:21 PM
I think sbrandt was joking about the date, just like NewTek was joking about the Sept 27th release date was a joke. We should all be able to laugh at ourselves. :lol:

pnelson
10-13-2006, 03:43 PM
Steve,

Actually we weren't joking about the September 27th date. We decided to roll in a few features that were slated for the next SpeedEDIT release. :)

Enjoy..

Okay, so what's new in the as yet unreleased SpeedEdit? :D

Any preview days in Europe (UK :thumbsup: )
I've already bought it BTW with my VT 5 update :)

pnelson
10-21-2006, 06:34 AM
Wildbill.. I don't want to give it away yet but I'll give you a quick little bonus.. Ease In and Ease Out is in the control tree. :)

BadLarma.. While I'm in the "leaking" mood... I can tell you that we are finalizing details for a HUGE UK event with NewTek Europe for the end of November. ;)

Have a great weekend.

Presumably somewhere in the South of England, i.e. London, as usual ? May or may not be able to attend in which case as finances are somewhat up in the air right now.

:thumbsup: dates ASAP please so I can get something organised. (May have to book time off my full time job to go).
