Two Oscars in two years in the best live action short film category for Final Cut Pro X. This year's winners took to the Faster Together stage to talk about how the film was made, including a live demo from the editor of the Skin timeline in FCPX.

We are back from NAB, we have got over the jet lag, so time to delve back into our photos and notes and round up our thoughts about NAB from day two onwards.

We publish the first in a set of videos from the Faster Together stage at NAB 2019. We start with an inspirational presentation from Michael Cioni, Senior VP of Innovation at Panavision. He takes a long hard look into the future.

An odd combination, but one when you read the article below, all will become clear. We post the pictures from the first Faster Together event in Las Vegas and post a free Final Cut Pro X plugin that was used for the quick-turnaround edits on the night.

You might have read between the lines over the last month and worked out that FCP.co will be at NAB this year. We have setup a WhatsApp group and have a few discount codes that might come in handy.

If you use Lightroom or Photoshop, then you are probably aware of Loupedeck, a custom control surface for image editing. Now those buttons & wheels can directly control FCPX.

What is the quickest way to create heavily graded footage in Final Cut Pro X but protect skin tones ? We think we might have found the answer with Picture Instrument's new $47 plugin called Warping Wheels. 

At the recent LACPUG in February, it was 'The Art of the Trailer' night. We are very pleased to see that Michael Horton has just published the 50 minute presentation from editor David Yocum and David James Rosen who together, crafted the excellent Bohemian Rhapsody trailer.

At the recent LACPUG meeting, one of the guests on stage was tech reviewer and vlogger Jonathan Morrison. A big FCPX fan, watch how he discovered how fast it was to edit when compared to a colleague's NLE.

A year on from Oscar winning film The Silent Child, another FCPX edited entry called Skin is in the last nominees for the 2019 best live action short film. Ronny Courtens spent time with the editor, Yuval Orr.

Shamir Allibhai told FCP.co how the Simon Says workflow extension for Final Cut Pro X can auto translate subtitles into 50 languages in seconds. Pretty Impressive.

Well, it has been a slow January for news (that we can publish) so we thought we would post this video that we came across on our YouTube explorations. Don't shout at the screen!

If there was one technology improvement over the last six months that was directly relevant to editors, it's the use of eGPUs. We have assembled a few videos to explain why.
