Meet Ned Soltz
COW Leaders : Ned SoltzCreative COW Web Writer, Contributing Editor
Ned Soltz is an author, editor, educator, and consultant on all things related to the Mac digital video world. Moving from the PC world some 15 years ago, he bought his first Mac SE and never looked back.
He began editing independent projects in Adobe Premiere but switched to Apple Final Cut Pro 1.0 the day after it was introduced at NAB. He became one of the founding members of the LA Final Cut Pro Users Group, the largest FCP User Group in the world.
Ned is a forum moderator on 2-pop.com and is the author of numerous articles and product reviews related to FCP, After Effects and the non-linear production environment. He is co-author of Revolutionary Final Cut Pro 3 and Revolutionary Adobe After Effects 5.5, a technical editor of three other volumes and is in the process of writing a yet-to-be-announced book.
When he is not evaluating products, writing books and reviews or dispensing advice, he tries to find the time to shoot and edit documentaries as well as promotional and educational pieces for non profit agencies. Leaving laid-back California, he now resides somewhere in the void between Dallas and Fort Worth.
