This video shows DSLRBOT taking stills and bracketing, but it can be used to trigger movie recording too. More info after the break.
We all got a bit excited when we saw this free App from the VFX tracking experts The Pixel Farm. More info & download links after the break.
Those helpful people at Amsys training have come up with an iphone App that helps test your knowledge of FCP.
An FCP tutorial with over 60 in-depth and easy to follow videos, more than 3 hours long, that you can view on your iPhone or iPad sounds like something that needs investigating.
This is the latest really cool FCP app for the iPhone which also scales for iPad. There is a version for iPad on its way. Really instructive video tutorial from Taz Goldstein and Steve Martin. The audio is out of sync, but loads of great details. We love adding markers, subclipping, labels and names and all for just $2.99! All the links you need after the break. *UPDATE* We have replaced the video with a corrected version.
We felt a bit guilty posting a timelapse of an Avid editor the other day so to readdress the balance, here's a timelapse of an FCP editor at work on a GoPro project, he's on day 85 of 365. Loads more videos after the break including an amazing fall off a mountain.
We have been itching to post the Youtube tutorial since we saw that Photo Montage, a new add on plugin pack, had been announced when FxFactory upgraded to 2.5.6.
Another tutorial from Wes James. This time he replicates the scrolling animation you have on your iPhone. Everybody has an iPhone now right?
There are built in tools for tracking within Final Cut Studio, but there are times when you need something a bit more powerful. Just watch this fast demo of Mocha AE working with FCP to put images onto an iPhone screen.
So you want to do some live multicamera switching on location? As long as you've got wifi and four friends with iPhones or iPads then Collabracam makes it easy. We know the FCP question that will follow!
***Updated with winners***
You are probably familiar with Digital Rebellion's other products such as the excellent FCS Maintenance Pack and Cut Notes for the iPad. Their latest product is Editmote, a remote controller for FCP, Avid, Premiere or the QuickTime player for Mac. They've also given us two copies to give away.
Not really a question that we've asked ourselves before, but we are glad that Lastfutre found out the answer. Using Final Cut Pro and Motion, he swapped the two dimensions in the production of this video.
When the iPhone version of this storyboard creation app was launched, we thought it was pretty cool but maybe the size of the iPhone made everything a bit fiddly to work. Now Cinemek have released a version that also works on the iPad which gives the app a new lease of life with the extra real estate.
Sony launch XMPilot an iPad app that lets you log shots as you shoot for direct ingest into Final Cut Pro bins
So how can you ingest 40 hours of XDCAM material and have it all logged into FCP bins in 2 hours? With Sony's new XMPilot app for iOS or Android, you do the hard work on the shoot.
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.
A fifteen minute presentation on the future of photography from Ron Brinkman, the guy who designed the interface for Shake. We enjoyed it a lot.
Digital Rebellion have launched Video Space for the iPhone and iPad, a disk space calculator for media storage.
We have overlooked many instances of new clapperboard iPad apps being released as there's a lot of them out there. QRSlate is slightly different as it tags the footage with a QR code for automatic recognition and logging info matching later. Clever.
Announced at the, erhem, Creative Pro User Group SuperMeet in San Francisco, Scribbeo is a $0.99 app that makes sharing notes and annotations on video easy.
A thread appeared on our forum over the weekend on the possibility of taking iMovie projects off an iPad or iPhone and into FCPX. It's possible and we post the steps you'll need to take.
