It's the night before NAB which gives us the perfect reason to show these videos from the recent Editor's Lounge Pre-NAB Discussion Panel. Lots of speculation across the board and NLE manufacturers, comments include 'Avid is 'stodgy' and 'FCPX will win the race.' Interesting.
And you thought your first $4.99 spend of today would be a sandwich at lunchtime! Possibly not as everybody in the FCP.co office this morning has been busy downloading the new Photoshop Touch app onto their phones. It's going to be popular.
***Update on FCP7 driver news from Matrox***
Matrox have announced that a unified driver is available for Avid Media Composer & Adobe CS6 Production Premium for the PC. They will also add FCPX support in January for the Mac!
The plugin management system FxFactory from Boston based company Noise Industries has been updated to version 4. The big news is plugin compatibility with Adobe's Premiere Pro CS6 for the Mac, but more plugins have been upgraded for Final Cut Pro X as well.
This week on the 21st of June, Final Cut Pro X wil be one year old. We take a look back at that eventful year and take a look forward to the next 12 months of FCPX's life.
We're pretty sure we've used the London bus analogy here on FCP.co before, but products from different manufacturers do seem to be released in batches. This time it's Tiffen with an FCPX friendly upgrade to their award winning pack of filters.
The Autosave Vault in FCP 7 has saved our bacon many times, but what about wanting to go back to older versions of your edit in Final Cut Pro X? We have 2 copies of Pro Versioner from Digital Rebellion to give away that allow you to step back in time on any NLE.
MOTO Inc is a relative stranger to the capture and playback market for video, so we thought we'd take a look at the new Thunderbolt equipped HDX-SDI.
At one minute past midnight EST, Adobe published details about their new version of Premiere Pro CS6. We had the pleasure of a sneak peek a few weeks ago.
Adobe have announced that the latest version of Photoshop, CS6 is now in beta and available for free download. Yes the interface has gone dark and yes it can edit video too.
The Conan Editors who took that humorous look at Final Cut Pro X when it was released have had a sneak peak at the new version of Adobe's Premiere Pro. A funny infomercial? You decide.
Accidentally launched on the App Store yesterday, withdrawn and now back up today, Adobe have released Photoshop Touch for the iPad at $9.99.
This video is just too good to hold back until Friday. A brilliant tongue in cheek look at the retouching of model shots, a behind the scenes video too.
Digital Rebellion have put more than 300 updates into their media management product, Pro Media Tools which is now at Version 1.1. They have also very kindly given us 2 copies to giveaway.
GenArts have released Version 6 of their popular plugin pack Sapphire for Final Cut Pro 7. They seem to be moving away from compositing tools and going for the eye candy.
The title is complete linkbait, but shortly after Apple acquired Final Cut that's exactly what Adobe wanted. For the last fortnight, we've been reading John Buck's excellent book Timeline Volume 2, a history of editing.
CoreMelt Complete is now available for Final Cut Pro X and it's been reduced to half price. Also Red Giant show us why Magic Bullet won't be coming to FCPX just yet.
'Avid is the Steinway of editing and Final Cut Pro is the Yamaha' Four editors discuss editing on the Mac
So you take the editor who cut Bohemian Rhapsody, two Apple trainers and MacVideo host Rick Young, sit them in front of an audience and get them to talk about editing on the Mac...
EditCodes, an iPhone & iPad app containing a searchable database of common errors for Mac based video editing software
What a superb idea. Compile into a database all the common error codes you'll likely to come across on Mac based video editing software. Then wrap it all up into a searchable iPhone & iPad app for $1.99.
The news yesterday that Wes Plate from Automatic Duck was moving to Adobe flashed around the internet pretty quickly. Is this good or bad news for Final Cut Pro X?
