    R.I.P. Larry Rubin - I Miss You A Lot Brother !

    Hi Editors:

                       I'm just remembering Larry Rubin, who used to be an incredible resource of Media Composer Encyclopedic Genius on the Avid Forums ! You could take even your most ridiculous questions, your most miserable malfunctions in work, and this Man would have a work around for ANYTHING ! I mean Larry was THAT good ! Larry was the chief editor at the Pentagon Channel if memory serves, and he was an amazing influence on this forum in days past. Larry was a Media Composer Jeddi ! Whenever I feel nostolgic about my early days coming up in this industry and learning MC, his name comes to mind, as he was there often to encourage me and give a helping hand. I learned so much from Larry, and several others on this forum back in my earlier days of cutting short films, music videos, and documentaries. Shout out to COMOSCOTO ! Hey Man ! Do you still lurk on these forums, or have you retired with your millions earned by using Avid MC ? Stick out tongue

    I never met Larry.  He was a bit of a DC area legend for his work at the Pentagon Channel. 

    We both interacted with AVID, though.  And worked hard to get a collaborative editing system running with multiple clients.  It was a tough go for a while for both of us.

    One story has Larry pulling all the dongles from all his Avids and having them on a table and threatening to sell every one if things didn't get fixed.

    We had a much smaller operation, but it still had about 15 clients trying to access shared storage.  That was combined with a dual monitor KVM switch and really was a cool deal by the time it got humming.  That took a full time tech monitoring and cleaning the system but, it worked.

    I never met Larry.  But we lived in the same world.

    I remember him well too. What a great guy, always willing to help and really cared about people and the Avids they used.

    It's actually nice to see names on this thread. Brings back a lot of good memories the wonderful help I got from some really special people!

    Larry was the 'ideal' Avid forum user for me. He had great knowledge, was always ready to help anyone at any level, always positive while never being defensive of Avid's shortcomings. I believe some of his posts still help people today and that his 'forum legacy' lives on in our memories and we try to keep contributing to this forum in similar ways as he did in his honor.

    πŸ‘  Yup ! You've all said it so well ! Larry made me Love Media Composer, when I was drowning in user technical minutia. Since those early days I have migrated over to many other editing platforms, but I always keep coming back to cutting on Avid Media Composer, because there's simply nothing else out there like it ! There just isn't if you are into story telling cutting. There's several Hollywood cutters who used to also lurk on this forum, who would read and watch Larry's threads (Folks like a certain Genius cutter who is always standing up !) I betcha he's still watching now ! Larry Rubin was the ONLY editor on this forum who didn't think I was pointless, because I preferred to always run MC on a laptop instead of a desktop. So many folks on the forum used to say most of my technical issues would go away if I just put my MC on a proper desktop. Larry predicted the future of editors cutting live on shooting locations working on MBP's and next one of our lurkers on the forum had his career take off cutting a little picture called "Baby Driver" on a friggin 15 inch MacBook Pro ! Right again Larry ! You were ahead of your time πŸ‘πŸ» Larry was very forward looking, but, he also fought tooth and nail not to give up his dongles ! I still kick myself to this day that I surrendered my dongle. Rest in peace Larry. You are THE MC MASTER ! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

    I didn't know, Larry but remember him well here, those years ago. He was a very knowlegdable gentleman, that's for sure. His posts still don't seem a million longs ago neither. RIP buddy.
