    Speed Edit Release Event.....

    OK, for all those who were lucky enough to attend one of the release events, which you should be leaving in about a half hour (at least the East coast events), share the excitment with those of us who couldn't attend!!

    I was going to go when it was in September---but then I got a job in Santa Maria---a whole 3 hours away from LA :-(

    Looks like none of the East coast attendees have bothered to share....
    Either that, or they are keeping the Newtek folks up late!

    I heard it was a "release" event where no product was actually "released" seams kinda pointless...

    Well, I never heard it called a "release" event till this thread...

    AFAIK, it is a "launch" event...

    That doesn't imply a ship date.

    My big question is, "did those of us who prepurchased Speed Edit make a wise decision or not?" I just need to know if I should prepair to purchase a Mac and FCP? It bothers me that noone (including NewTek) has anything to say at this point. Someone needs to talk about it. After all we are investors and want to know where our money was spent.

    With all due respect, we were promised a VT5 shipping date of "summer".

    You guys might want to check out the latest press release:

    http://www.newtek.com/news/releases/11-13-06a.html

    BTW, don't think I'm saying Newtek didn't suggest at NAB and thereafter that SpeedEDIT would be out this summer, they did...

    But I think we've all been watching software development long enough to know that those things aren't really that predicatable. It's just the way it is.

    I'd rather have it working and with a decent feature set rather than out on time buggy and with a limited feature set, and I'm sure you guys would as well.

    Anytime you buy a product early, sight unseen, a product that hasn't been fully created yet, you are taking a risk on when it will be ready. It's a gamble.

    Why is nobody telling us about the show?

    Maybe no one was impressed enough to write about it?

    Someone on the safe harbor board said it didn't seem much different than 4.6, except for the new formats and voice over recording feature.

    And he wouln't tell us how they were able to do realtime output of HD... what's the secret - did they make him swear not to tell?

    Wasn't this the point of the event? - to spread the word?

    What a bummer. I was all set to spend an evening reviewing some great new features...

    Now we are back to waiting again.

    hey, thanks for bringing my anxiety back into check Eugene. Now, calmly I say, we just need to know when.

    I don't mind waiting for a product. I don't even mind waiting on a product I have already paid for. What I do mind, is being kept in the dark concerning it's development progress. It's becoming really frustrating.

    Maybe I'm a bit too optimistic, but I had confidence NewTek would deliver on time. I find it sad to admit this, but if I treated my deadlines the way NewTek has gotten used to lately, I would be out of a job by now, despite the high quality of my productions.

    Speaking totally serious here...
    If Newtek "launched" SpeedEdit lastnight it must not be a very good product. I have not found ONE person who has said ONE thing about the launch - this includes Newtek people.
    Unfortunately I got suckered into pre purchasing, have heard all the hype about, and now that the product has been officially "launched" no one can say anything about it.
    Newtek, you guys need to hire a new marketing person.

    If its free then it wont cost anything, right?
