We love MacBreak Studio here on FCP.co, so much we are actually suggesting episodes! This week the boys look at how to retime Motion Generators in Final Cut Pro X
First of all we have to thank Steve and Mark for the plug of the website on the show. Secondly we thought you might like to know a bit more about how the question started and how the solution was found.
When we wrote the article on Digital Heaven's Counter X back at the end of February, we thought the method used to freeze the counter was a bit of a workaround and there must be an easier way.
Mark Spencer is a friend on messages and we pinged him the question 'Could generators be retimed in FCPX?' He tried it and said it didn't work. Then we suggested 'Would using a compound clip allow for retiming?' and after a bit of testing Mark got back to us to say that it did indeed work. Then we commented it would make a good MacBreak Studio episode and well, you know the rest!
Expect a whole host of blogs & other tutorial makers to pickup on this method, good news travels fast.
