Extreme Lag with programI ran test 1. For about 5 minutes with lot of effects and layers. FCPX returned the memory instantly. So this real problem does not affect me. I have no idea why . My gears are Mac Pro late 2013 with Thunderbolt 2 SSD 1 TB Raid 0. Is it possible that it has...
Text Color in TitlesUse the eye dropper, as Tom said, to select the color.
To save it, simply drag it to the preset wells at the bottom of the Color Picker.
You can grab the dot at the bottom of the preset well section to expand it for lots and lots of...
Sony XDCAM EX in FCPX 10.2 problem importingHey John,
The repeated Pro Apps update is a known issue with the App Store. And yes, this could be related to your problem because for some people the update does not install at all. Try this:
Download the Pro Video Formats 2.0.1 disk image directly...
Separate timecode Window?Agreed. At least this solves the problem of client viewings. For remote viewings I suggest just bouncing thought Davinci Resolve. It can do what FCP X can't. That is add a timecode layer or source timecode to each clip in a sequence.
Will FCP X work on this old Mac Pro?I have a 4,1 and EVERYTHING works just fine.
+ I use Yosemite, FCPX 10.2 with stock bluetooth & wifi,
+ 7950 gpu (roughly $400) (can be much cheaper for PC ver.. but has a few small issues noted elsewhere),
+ an Acorn pci card ($89) holding a 512...
color correction in inspector is not there!!!It is not an Effect, in the Color collection of the Effects Browser.
Or, with the clip active in the Inspector, Command-6 (just like before), and the moment you move a puck, it is added to that clip.
And I have...
Burning finished product to DVD discIf you don't need to author it, share from FCPX selecting DVD. Select the few options you want and that's it. If you first share to a master file ( video and audio using prores 422 is ok) then you can open that file in Compressor and use the Create Disc...
MP3 Export in 10.2 Incredibly slowDid you notice if the render wheel in the timecode bar reaches a certain number ( from 0 to 100 ) where it stops and hangs? Or, does it never get off of 0? If either is the case, you might try deleting the render files for that event or library and try your...
Backing up Raid 0?Depends on the size of your drives, and the number of drives you're using. Can't be boiled down to a set percentage. Mid I have 16x2 TB drives, I still only give up 4 TB parity space, and have 28 TB left. RAIDS 6 uses more party space than 5.
Masking an Effect and Adjustment LayersHello,
Two n00b questions here. B)
01: how to mask an effect to affect only one portion of a layer without duplicating/cloning that layer?
02: I there a way to create/use adjustments layers like in After Effects?
Thank You :)
FCP X.2 keyboard shortcutsThere really aren't any. Although your old custom layouts are saved now. The new "Save Audio/Video Effect Preset" and "Adjust Volume > Silence" commands have none, but you are able to create your own.
Keeping talking head centered in frameJust want to bring this thread up-to-date. The latest version of TrackX has an effect called Track and LockDown which is designed specifically to keep a presenter centered and does a great job. Here's the tutorial:
Text TemplatesHi Michael,
Just take the Basic Title template and put it on the timeline over your video.
Then enter your 2 paragraphs in the Inspector > Text box, format and place the text.
Then drag out the title clip in the timeline to make it as long as you need....
