Day one of NAB 2019 in Las Vegas and there is a running theme on the show floor of 8K production. What we didn't expect though was a return of the dedicated editing keyboard! Also make sure you watch a great interview about ProRes RAW.
Not an update to the Pro Apps, but great news from six third-party companies who have announced that their products will support ProRes RAW. A year on, the video format is gaining traction!
Final Cut Pro X libraries can grow in size, especially when you have a lot of proxy media or use Optical Flow. This $2 app quickly slims libraries down by removing unwanted files.
You might have read between the lines over the last month and worked out that FCP.co will be at NAB this year. We have setup a WhatsApp group and have a few discount codes that might come in handy.
EVR X is an inexpensive app that turns EXIF camera data into keywords for video files in Final Cut Pro X. They can then be searched, sorted and even turned into Smart Collections. *UPDATE* ProRes, ProRes RAW and DNxHD available for Atomos recorders.
The developers of KeyFlow Pro 2 have released seven new tutorials on how their MAM works. Of special interest to us is the integration with Final Cut Pro X and of course the Workflow Extension.
Today Apple has updated Final Cut Pro X to 10.4.6, Motion to 5.4.3 and Compressor to 4.4.4. Apart from converting incompatible media formats, this looks like a big set of bug fixes. iMovie gets an update too!
Somebody said that the news on the run-up to NAB was quiet. Not any more, two announcements today and the second is an upgrade for users of Frame.io.
It seems that Apple really is getting the new product announcements out before their big streaming event on the 25th. It has just announced a refresh with new processors and new GPUs for the iMacs. **New iMac Pro GPU and memory options**
