Hot off the uploads is the first third party test we have seen of the new Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera. The footage was edited in Final Cut Pro X and graded in Resolve. The video and more details shamelessly scraped off Vimeo after the break.
Again, it's Blackmagic Design and their cameras that have got the most column inches at NAB this week. We look at the 4K and Pocket Cinema Cameras, the new Resolve 10 and how they all work with FCPX.
Red Giant formally announced Bulletproof on April the 1st. There weren't many details on the website, so we decided to track down Simon Walker to take us through the application.
As was mentioned on our Forum, April the first is probably not the best day to announce a new product! Red Giant aren't fooling with BulletProof, a new app that aims to bridge 'the gap between camera and editor.'
A new Final Cut Pro X plugin from CineFlare this week. It's called Discoloration and provides 40 different light damage effects to stylise video.
Color Grading Central have released classyLook, a $69 plugin for Final Cut Pro X that not only colour corrects, it also emulates old classic film dye emulsions. We have a 20% off coupon for today only!
Jonathan Richards at HY-FX filled a small gap in FCPX functionality with a one click colour cast removal tool called HYColour. Now HyColour Pro moves the plugin into advanced colour correction and looks building.
Like it or loathe it, the color board in Final Cut Pro X is the place to go to colour correct your footage. How about being able to control it and apply grades using the keyboard? Steve and Mark explore...
We have featured a lot of film grain packs on here over the years. One of our forum members tipped us off about this new inexpensive pack from Holygrain, so we thought we would take a look.
Another two new FCPX products from different companies in the last week before Christmas. Pixel Film Studios release vintage looks plugin Prolaroid and Cineflare launch their lens flare pack Anamorphics.
There are many looks packages out there for FCPX, but they don't tackle some of the trickier colour correction problems that editors face. The new $25 HyColour colour grading utility plugin concentrates on getting the colours right.
If you need more colour correction or grading than FCPX or plugins will handle, the best way to go is out to Resolve. Blackmagic Design's grading program has come a long way since its acquisition and it continues to grow. Alexis Van Hurkman can show you more.
***Updated with more information from developers***
You will have to bear with us for this one, but it does look like you can control the color board in FCPX by using gestures on a trackpad.
Denver Riddle from Color Grading Central has built up a great library of looks from using Resolve on grading jobs. Now he's wrapped them all up into a $149 pack.
Yes you read the title right, the color square. Which of course should be the color board, but we have a feeling that Steve's new name for the tool just might stick! Whatever it's called, good Final Cut Pro X color correction tips from the duo.
Previewed at this year's NAB, CrumplePop has released ColorKit Suite, a new collection of color and film tool plugins for Final Cut Pro X. Each suite is worth $499 and we have 5 to giveaway in our largest ever competition.

Independent filmaker Nick Gregorio got an added bonus when his feature 'Green' was able to be remastered in FCPX with the original RED files via Resolve.
Two lots of Alexis Van Hurkman on BlackMagic Design's Resolve, MacBreak Studio & MacBreak Studio Live!
The first part of Alexis's introduction to BlackMagic Design's DaVinci Resolve was extremely popular. He's back with part two of three and we've also posted his appearance on the live version of MacBreak Studio where he goes into more detail about the job of a colorist.
Steve Martin is joined by Alexis Van Hurkman this time on MacBreak Studio to talk about Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve. A great 15 minutes worth of information.
