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.
Digital Rebellion have updated their iPad note taking application Cut Notes to version 2. A new look GUI, more features and the ability to sync everything in the cloud.
Controlling Final Cut Pro X from a iPhone or iPad isn't new. What is new however is Editmote 2 which gains added Final Cut Pro X support, gestures and more. We also have 3 copies to give away.
***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!
We don't think we've covered a marriage proposal here before on FCP.co and it makes a happy change from the rather depressing news from yesterday. When industry guru Michael Kammes proposed, he did it with style and in three dimensions...
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.

Sorenson has launched Squeeze 8 Pro, the new version can now output ProRes files directly from within Avid. Codec specific add-ons available for existing customers.
If you are one of the lucky editors who will work with 4K RAW or SR codec footage from the Sony F65 camera, then you'll need to know how to get the footage off the cards and into your NLE.
You can help CrumplePop build the ultimate film grain package by funding the production of Grain35 on Kickstarter. You'll also get the product once it's been finished!
A quick reaction from Avid to the release of FCPX 10.0.3 - they have launched Avid for the iPad! Yes could this be Avid's sign of moving into the iMovie/FCPX market?
A slightly different MacBreak Studio Live this month. This time Steve Kantor joins the regulars where they take a look at Avid's Media Composer 6 and how it compares and differs from Final Cut Pro X. It's a good battle!

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.
