May roundup fcpx

Yes we are well into June, but we have quite a few odd bits of news left over from May that we thought we would get out of the inbox to make space for WWDC. So in no particular order or ranking...

Let us start off with a simple link. A link to an Apple Knowledge Base article that has been modified to show the best practices for updating, backing up and moving events & projects for Final Cut Pro X.

 

AVCCAM restorer FCPX

If you missed it in our ever expanding Forum, (We mistook it for spam and deleted it) Rafael Vandermeerschen posted a very handy link to AVCCAM Restorer, a tool for repairing MTS files. A simple way to make the correct AVCDH folder structure from bare MTS files.

On the training front, for one week only starting today (Friday), MacProVideo and AskVideo are offering a 40% discount across all of their courses. The discounted down to $15 a month subscription will allow access to over 500 courses, not just FCPX. Use the coupon code 13SUMMERSCHOOL40

 

Mosa Motion Graphics has released a collection of 3D clips, quite inspirationally called 3D Clips. This $9.99 pack of video clips is a set of 3D generated patterns made into movies that get delivered by the App Store. A little random and garish for our tastes maybe, but they are cheap and may fit a requirement.

 

Next up is a tutorial that we have had up our sleeves from Ben Consoli. He details how to make Export Bundles from the Share Menu in FCPX.  

 

Yeup, we couldn't go a month without mentioning light flares. Connor Productions has added some free 'Film Burns' to its website. 

 

And Fordee has released a $25 FCPX plugin called Audio Effector Plus that animates a picture or video in relation to a Beats Per Minute setting.

 

So there you go, an almost empty inbox ready for a busy week.
