      Background

      Avid-L was established in 1994 at Calvin College by Steven Koster.
      It was created to be a forum for Avid users to meet, discuss, and share
      information.

      Avid-L quickly grew into the premiere on-line users group for
      professional film and video editors. It was one of the earliest examples

      of an Internet community, allowing hundreds of editors worldwide to
      share their experiences and expertise with their peers. There was no
      better place for a professional Avid editor to get such wealth of
      informed professional advice.

      At various times, individual subscribers volunteered services to the
      group. Searchable archives were maintained by Germany's Berlin Users
      Group as well as the UIUC. A tips & tricks list was posted by Andy
      Birkhead of Innovative Edit. Wes Plate, a longtime contributor, not only

      shared key techniques on his Web site, he also created a photo gallery
      for members' portraits.

      In 1997, several subscribers began a tradition of meeting in person at
      the NAB trade show in Las
      Vegas. The first gatherings were organized by Jaime Fowler. In 1999,
      Avid Technology itself began sponsoring these gatherings as an exclusive

      reception and seminar for Avid-L members only.

      By 1999, Avid-L boasted over 1600 subscribers, exhibiting a true
      international scope with over 300 international members. The community
      included participants from a wide variety of well-known corporate
      organizations in broadcasting, technical, and content creation fields,
      as well as and multiple local TV stations, colleges, and universities.

      In 2000, Avid-L joined AvidProNet.com, and then, in 2002, was integrated
      Into Avid.com.

      In 2005 Due to problems with signal to noise ratio and abusive posters, the Avid-L2 was formed.

      Cross-posting to the Avid-L and the FCP-L is welcome, tho reply's will not flow back to either list necessarily- check your own email reply preferences.

      Welcome, and Enjoy!

        At the middle of 2006, the L2 has around 1100 members, with plenty of "lurker only" members who simply use the web version of the list. The L2 is spam-free, by moderation and with Yahoo's tools and will remain that way. The integrated archives with both old L and L2 posts came on line recently as well at the University of Illinois. That can be found at http://archives.itg.uiuc.edu/avid/.

        Cross-posting to the FCP-L is welcome, tho reply's will not flow back to either list necessarily- check your own email reply preferences. The Final Cut list is found at: http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/FinalCutPro-L
