We are always having to cut or extend music to the right length, always a lot of foot tapping, marker placing and nibbling frames away to get the perfect result. What if there was an easier and more flexible way? FCP Audio has an interesting range of music products that uses 'Soundstacks' that build music in sections.
Another sign that the industry is seeing FCPX as a real heavyweight in the NLE battle is the proliferation of third-party apps for online services. Yesterday we had Pond5, today we have Vimeo.
The new captions feature in the recent FCPX 10.4.1 update is certainly creating a lot of interest. A new version of SpeedScriber, the automated transcription app now lets editors export transcribed text into iTT format for import as captions in Final Cut Pro X. Speedscriber 2 also supports five new languages.
The news from NAB about FCPX keeps on coming. Pond5 has just announced an app that works with Final Cut Pro X enabling you to edit with watermarked previews and then automatically replace the media on the timeline with high resolution footage.
