On January 21, 2004, a small group of volunteers
braved the early morning cold to discuss the possibility of
forming a Discreet Users Group for the Texas-Southwest region
of the U.S. It was determined that a group of this nature
would be advantages to not only the companies and individuals
using Discreet products, but also for the film and post-production
community in general.
The decision that was made to regularly
assemble individuals in the video and film community that
are either users or are interested in being future users of
Discreet solutions. The group will convene every other month
on the 3rd Tuesday between 6:45-8pm, locations TBD. The gathering
of this group will provide a forum for sharing knowledge,
techniques and solutions of common issues associated with
usage of Discreet products. Also, it will provide a mechanism
to deliver both positive and negative feedback to Discreet
This group will not only welcome Discreet users but will encourage
presentations and input from auxiliary vendors such as SGI,
Alias, and the various companies that complement Discreet
products. All interested in parties are welcome,except representatives
of competitive products.
Although a name was not determined, such
titles as SWUG (Southwest Users Group), DUG (Dallas Users
Group) and SCUG (South Central Users Group) were suggested.
Also, until officers are elected, the original volunteers
will serve as the interim Board of Directors to make any needed
