This is a long article, but the project itself is fairly simple. I hope you are able to stay with it and develop a project for which you can be proud and learn something new while putting it together. The font is already made and free. All you have to do is put the pieces together! While you put this together, I hope you will appreciate how all the parts fit together perfectly; there’s no need for dealing with anchor points or other issues with alignments. Using font “icons”, vectors, text, etc. is a great, and easy way to build 3D animated illustrations.

We give a very warm welcome to Fox Mahoney as he joins our roster of talented writers. He probably knows more about fonts and 3D in Motion than anybody outside of Cupertino, so we are very happy that he has agreed to let us in on a few secrets. His first tutorial is building a custom Motion generator to automatically generate subtitles in Final Cut Pro X.

As we have been a bit hardware-centric over the last week or so, this story takes us right back to the craft. Sven Pape is publishing regular videos on how he's cutting a film - on FCPX of course!

BVE 2016 FCPX

We couldn't make BVE at ExCel London this year, a shame as Soho Editors had a lecture area that put on presentations that mainly concentrated on Final Cut Pro X. So luckily for us they have just published recordings of the sessions.  Rory from Soho Editors, Thomas Grove Carter, a couple of Alexes and Pierre from Softron all take to the stage.
