It's been a while since we featured a presentation from the LACPUG here on FCP.co. This is a good one, Sam Mestman from Lumaforge takes the audience through a 4K RED workflow on Final Cut Pro X.

We have seen it demoed, but today is the official release date for the updated plugin SliceX, the bezier masking tool for FCPX that now features Mocha tracking. We also have 3 copies to giveaway to lucky FCP.co readers!
What are cinemagraphs? In this article we show you a recent broadcast feature made up entirely of cinemagraphs and we also look at how they are made using FCP and Motion.
You would think that from the title of the article that this new episode of MacBreak Studio is covering the basics on behaviors. You would be wrong as it gets complex and very interesting very quickly.

A slightly cryptic headline for this new episode of MacBreak Studio, but indeed, our duo of Steve and Mark make a DVDless DVD. See how they perform this FCPX magic trick after the break!
Although there is video stabilisation built into FCPX, the $99 Motionbend application has a lot more going on under the hood. With a new XML export into FCPX feature just added, we thought we would take a closer look at "motion editing" with Motionbend.
With not much news on a quiet Monday, we thought that it was a good opportunity to take a look at the best free Final Cut Pro X tutorials that have been published this month.
The deluge of new plugins post NAB continues. New releases include a utility plugin for getting the timing right when editing to a script and a couple of new free plugins from Andy Mees.

Two new products from two Final Cut Pro X plugin developers. Get custom graphics layered over footage with XOverlays and bring those GVG wipe patterns back with Shape Pop.
NewBlueFX is one name that isn't that familiar with FCPX editors. Their background has been mainly with Sony Vegas users, so we took the opportunity to talk about their plugins at NAB. Also standby for Denoiser news!
Previewed at the recent SuperMeet at NAB, Ripple Training have released a $59 pack of timeline transitions plugins for Final Cut Pro X. There's also a special offer of $20 off the price until Sunday.
Editing a growing clip whilst ingesting has been pretty common practice with FCP7 for a while. Trying the same with existing replay based streaming solutions and Final Cut Pro X is a different story. MovieRecorder from Softron however allows you import a clip while it is still ingesting and we are super excited! Essential watching if you produce live events or quick turnaround shows.
In this week's episode of MacBreak Studio we go back to basics, but with a twist. Learn how to replace media when you want to match action in the middle of a clip.
We were so impressed by the demo we had on the Monday with Technicolor's Color Assist plugin for FCPX, we had to go back and film it! Some very clever colour correction going on.
SliceX from Coremelt got a huge thumbs up from all our readers here on FCP.co. When they announced that planar tracking was going to be built in, we tracked down (sorry) Roger Bolton at NAB to give us a live FCPX demo. There's a money off offer too!
