About the Artist:

Sik.Star pulls from humor, conspiracies, pop culture, spirituality, and life experiences to create psychedelic pieces that challenge the viewer's perception and invites them to form their own opinions. She is a proponent of using recycled resources to utilize items we take for granted such as up-cycled spray cans, lamps, mannequins, and other oddities.

Born in the heart of Greenwich Village, NYC, a deep love for art was forever entangled in her being. She was raised in an inherently creative household where art was an everyday part of life. This hobby evolved into a Sik.Star's ultimate life goal to be a "creator" and to constantly share her work with the world.

Time to learn Final Cut X! CMCM Edit Lab to phase out FCP7.

Goodbye, Final Cut 7!

Final Cut X came out in 2011. It has since been refined and is now a much more stable and faster editing platform than Final Cut 7 ever was (which also hasn't been supported or updated for years). The very latest Final Cut X will only run on the 'High Sierra' Mac OS and that effectively renders Final Cut 7 inoperable. In order to update our operating system for stability and security, will soon phase out Final Cut 7 from our editing lab.

If you have using FCP7 exclusively, it's time to finally embrace new technology. Please sign up for a Final Cut X class today!

Here are several other useful tools to help make your transition to FCPX as smooth as possible:
