Hi, TIG readers...

A question on behalf of Final Cut Pro editor Dave Poole... who was 
seeking help on the sfcutters.org list:

I've asked what tools he has in addition to FCP and will post that info 
on arrival.

Don't know how long the shot is but will ask that and what the 
originating medium was.
