<p>”FileMaker is especially pleased to help make the Final Cut Pro Users Group meeting a success. FileMaker Pro has always been a favourite tool in post-production,” said Steve McManus, General Manager, FileMaker Asia Pacific. “More recently, the ability of FileMaker Pro to easily store, catalogue and manage any type of visual and audio file has made it increasingly popular throughout the creative process.”</p>
<p>“As the integral database solution for post-production, FileMaker Pro makes a terrific duo with Final Cut Pro,” said Ramy Katrib, founder of post-production firm Digital Film Tree (, of Los Angeles, which consulted and provided pos-production work on the movie “Cold Mountain” using both Final Cut Pro and FileMaker Pro. Digital Film Tree has also done post-production work for 20th Century Fox, NBC-TV, Dreamworks, Miramax, MGM, Warner Brothers and Sony Picture Studios. “Digital production technologies have now made it critical to be able to manage and easily retrieve the large and diverse amounts of video and audio assets during the post-production process. The effectiveness of FileMaker in managing these assets enables me to spend more time on the creative side of editing.”</p>
