The release of Final Cut Pro X back in July 21st 2011 certainly polarised the post production industry. Now a feature length documentary from Brad Olsen tells the story of how the world's favourite NLE changed overnight and how the industry did or didn't accept the new version.
Cast your mind back to April 2016. We published a short article about Sven Pape and how he planned to edit a feature film on FCPX live on the internet for everybody to watch. Well, the film is finished and Sven and his colleague Dustin Hughes presented about the feature "Flesh and Blood" on the Faster Together stage at NAB 2017.
Michael Kammes is no stranger on FCP.co- We have even featured how he recorded his proposal in 3D and wedding in the first person POV on video! He also produces a web series called '5 Things" and here we present his live version from the LumaForge Faster Together stage at NAB 2017.
NAB 2017 was a blast! This year, LumaForge had the opportunity to host both the Faster, Together Stage at the Courtyard Marriott and our Workflow Suite on the 59th floor of the Encore hotel. We also participated in the FCPX Guru Gathering, the Colorist Mixer, the SuperMeet and even threw a party at the Encore.
While we wait for the rest of the FCP X Tour videos from NAB to get posted, here’s a last but certainly not least video from the FCP X Tour Barcelona. We couldn’t publish it sooner because some of the projects mentioned were still under NDA at the time of the recording. We hope you will enjoy the video presentation, but first some background information:
In the first of our publications of the video presentations from the LumaForge Faster Together Stage, Michael Cioni talks about his and our relationships with Apple's products. A great 40 minutes of truth and observations. Grab a coffee, this is well worth watching and will get a lot of views.
Every year, the prestigious Blanquerna School for Communication and International Relations in Barcelona prepares 1800 Spanish and international students for a professional career in Cinema and Television, Advertising, Communication, Journalism and International Relations. And they all work with Macs and Final Cut Pro X.
Two bits of good news. 3D and VR plugin developer Tim Dashwood has joined Apple. Not only is that good news for FCPX users, he has also made his existing plugin products free.
We reported on the release of FindrCat back in November. Now Phil And Greg from Intelligent Assistance have released FindrCat Pro. This is an in app purchase in FindrCat that now keeps FCPX metadata when round tripping through Finder.
We have had English graphic manuals for Final Cut Pro X 10.3, we have had a German graphic manual, so we thought it's only fair to mention the latest manual update for French editors.
Everybody hates boring tutorials, sometimes the best way to teach is to keep everything concise and to the point. Bill Davis' refreshed XinTwo tutorial website is nearly up to its 100th 'micro' FCPX video lesson.
The debate is over, it looks like we won't get a feature packed update for the pro apps this side of NAB. All the pro video apps have had an update today along with a few new features included for FCPX, Motion and Compressor.
Gabriele Weßling has published a Final Cut Pro X graphic 'how to' manual for German readers. Priced at €17 for the PDF, it is suitable for beginners and experienced editors.
