OSX Mountain Lion
Apple post the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote speech online - Checkout the retina screen MacBook Pro
If like us you didn't make WWC this year, you can watch the whole of the keynote presentation from Moscone West last Monday morning right here. You still won't see any new MacPros though!
An update to FCPX for new retina screen MacBook Pros but the Mac Pro just gets a quiet update on the Mac Store
A mix of excitement and disappointment after this year's Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco this year. The new MacBook Pro with a retina display running an updated Final Cut Pro looks gorgeous, but same form factor MacPros without Thunderbolt are a bit of a letdown.
We're not really the site for rumours, but we can't not mention that this Monday at the World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco everybody is expecting new hardware. And yes that means new Mac Pros. (Hopefully!)
The answer is to check for a virus. Yeup you read right, your machine could be infected with the Flashback OSX Trojan. Won't happen to you? A good friend of FCP.co got hit.
Distributing templates and effects around different machines and editors can be made easy by using installers. Digital Rebellion's Pro Maintenance Tools gets an update that can build installers for custom plugin effects. Good job too as things are going to get even more complicated under Mountain Lion!
Apple have published a document with a lot of help links that are designed to troubleshoot the basic problems you might get with FCPX. One we would definitely bookmark.
***Update - New version now allows second display out from FCPX***
When the preview of Mountain Lion was announced, everybody thought how cool it would be in the future to mirror your FCPX desktop to an AppleTV. You don't have to wait until after the summer or later for the new cat, we show you how to do it now.
Apple today previewed Mountain Lion, the new version of the Mac operating system. If you're not a developer you are going to have to wait until the end of the summer for the new cat to arrive.
One of the big stumbling blocks for the acceptance of Final Cut Pro X with professional editors has been its use on shared storage. Apple have published a white paper of Xsan Best Practices, it makes interesting reading.
We've been expecting it for a while, Apple have released a free update to Final Cut Pro X. New features are included and some features announced for the future.
It might not be the Minority Report 'air GUI' but you can control a lot of the features within Final Cut Pro X with just your voice. Could you do a complete edit without having to touch the keyboard?
Nice to see somebody showing off what Final Cut Pro X CAN do instead of slamming it all the time. In these four videos from the recent LAFCPUG meeting, Steve Kanter runs through the positives.
Noise Industries were the only plugin company to have products that worked with FCPX on the day it was released. The new version of FxFactory is ready for that Lion OS X 10.7 and Final Cut Pro X combination. Tutorials after the break.
We've been patiently waiting for it but it is finally out, the next OS after Snow Leopard, Lion
How do you keep all your custom Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5 effects synchronised across multiple machines? Turner Hall sent us this handy tip.
What do you do when you've just downloaded a new app? Doesn't everybody open the package contents and have a look at the internal frameworks and resources? Alex Gollner kindly put together this summary of his detective work for FCP.co.
Digital Rebellion have upgraded and renamed their very successful FCS Maintenance Pack to Pro Maintenance Tools. More supported apps, more features, Lion compatible and we have two copies to give away.
We all know that we will be able to download OS X Lion from the Mac App Store in July. But what if you have multiple seats that need upgrading and would a possible volume licence apply to other (ahem) downloadable apps in the future?
