Working out how to edit large camera media such as 6K in the correct resolution and aspect ratio for delivery can be a nightmare. Robin Moran has done the maths and has figured out how to keep the quality and flexibility up in FCPX when shooting overscan and cropping a centre extraction.
If you couldn't make the recent FCPX Tour in Amsterdam during IBC, you really missed out. Not a worry though as all the presentations were recorded and we will be publishing them right here on a regular basis. Here are the first two:
FCP.co has a table at the evening event at the FCPX Creative Summit later this month and we would love to see you. We also have a coupon code for 50% off the admission for you to get in for just $20.
A big update to a very popular plugin. Denver Riddle from Color Grading Central has announced the launch of Color Finale Pro for Final Cut Pro X
Two different outcomes for older software and the recent update to macOS Sierra. Cinema Tools dies, but FCP7 keeps going with a tweak.
UPDATED - CINEMA TOOLS CAN RUN ON SIERRA!
Would you like to contribute to the growing Final Cut Pro X community? We are looking for writers, bloggers and general FCPX enthusiasts to help keep the good news going on FCP.co.
Editors Keys very kindly lent the site a backlit illuminated FCPX keyboard to try out. So why not take it out on a real job and use it under pressure? What was the verdict?
When Anders Utterstrom watched the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympics from Rio, he had an idea. Could he recreate the Anthony Howe kinetic sculpture that accompanied the flame? Time to start experimenting with Apple's Morion and 3D objects!
These two plugins are similar but different. They both do the work of the internal tools within Final Cut Pro X, however both sets of developers say that their products do a much better job. Better keying with Hawaiki Keyer 3 and better stabilisation with BetterStabilizer from CrumplePop.
Organising media is very important when you have a lot of files in FCPX, especially when you need to navigate to the clips you require quickly. If you do a long edit job over many days, then building time sensitive Library Smart Collections might help. A lot!
At one point, Sapphire plugins from GenArts were the expensive, but 'must have' set of tools for high end editing and compositing suites. The company has just been acquired by Boris FX, so we rushed over to the booth at IBC Hall 7 to talk to the man himself Boris Yamnitsky.
