Two great interviews by Rick Young of MacVideo filmed at the recent SuperMeet in Las Vegas. Steve Martin and Ned Soltz talk about the new Final Cut Pro, FCPX.

If you've ever searched Google for an answer to a problem with Final Cut Pro, then chances are you'll have visited the Apple discussion boards. Check your bookmarks as the best FCP forum on the web has had a makeover.

Take a look at the video above. The new FCPX in action? Wrong, it's an iMovie timeline worked up by Scott Simmonds. Looks slightly familiar doesn't it?

Is it possible to give an award to a product that hasn't been released yet? Of course as Videomaker have given the NAB 2011 award to Apple's Final Cut Pro X.

Walter knows his stuff, he grades using Color on a regular basis and has produced a top selling Color instructional DVD. He managed to squeeze some demo time at NAB to take a look at Baselight and the FCP plugin.

Two reasons for posting this video. The first is the fact that PluralEyes is a pretty amazing piece of software for synching clips and audio together. The second, well take a look after the break.

Those FCPX Presentations filmed from iPhones, iPads, Canons, Nikons, and Panasonics are starting to spring up across the net, like Pink Floyd bootlegs. Some have been filmed from bags, other like Emmanuel Pampuri's managed to get both presentation party and screen in shot, and with a somewhat frenzied sting on the front! Well done Manu for posting so soon. Part 2 after the break.

FCPX

FCPX - It was the news we've been waiting a few years for but it was worth it. Awesome, jaw dropping call it what you want FCPX (10) takes editing to a new level. All the new features after the break.

It will be the last because from tonight when the 'new' FCP is demoed at the SuperMeet, FCP7 will named the 'old' Final Cut Pro. Tonight will be a watershed...

We all want this and we completely agree with Jason Rose when it comes to editing and keyboards. However demoing FCP7 with a touchscreen seems slightly odd with the new version less than 48 hours away.

baselight_for_FCP

Hot news indeed. This plugin gives editors direct access to Baselight functionality within Final Cut Pro.  You can render the Baselight settings within Final Cut or export them as an XML list to load into a Baselight system. Could this just last 4 days before the new FCP is announced? 

editshare

Editshare ups the ante as it introduces 'Energy', its new high-performance mid-range shared storage solution at NAB 2011. The beauty of ‘Energy’ is that it offers advanced project sharing with sequence and bin locking for Avid, Apple FCP, and Lightworks. If you want more than one FCP editor working on a project then this might be the answer.

Noise Industries powered PHYX Keyer 2.0 amps up popular keying plug-in pack with three new keying plug-ins for increased keying accuracy, speed and control in Final Cut Pro, Motion and After Effects. All the info after the break.
