compositing_FCPX_macbreak_studio_166

In this new episode of MacBreak Studio, Mark Spencer and Steve Martin talk about basic compositing in FCPX. You might not have a send to Motion feature, so can great greenscreen compositing be done directly in Final Cut Pro X?

If you want to impress somebody who thinks FCPX isn't up to professional work, get them to look at what a great greenscreen key you can get with one click. They'll hate having to go back to that little colour picker & sliders in FCP7!

In this episode, our usual duo of Mark Spencer and Steve Martin take a look at basic compositing in FCPX, which naturally starts with pulling a good greenscreen key. Also find out how to reorder and duplicate layers in stacks without damaging the sync of the clips.

Many thanks to Steve & Mark, don't forget to check out their training books for FCPX and Motion.
