Angry Birds and Final Cut Pro X. Two things we didn't expect to write in a headline! When it came to editing an Angry Birds commercial for Sydney's Luna Park, Tom Fossey from Rhino Post Production knew which NLE could quickly tame Red, Chuck and Bomb. (They have names?)
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.
We have had Final Cut Pro X in under five minutes, now we have XinTwo which aims to break down learning FCPX into shorter bite-sized chunks.
Well it is a big claim to make, but maybe with Final Cut Pro X, half an hour is really all you need to get enough instruction to edit & publish to YouTube. This new free 25 minute tutorial doesn't hang around...
It has been a quiet week for Final Cut Pro news, so that gives us the ideal chance to catch up on the latest free FCPX and Motion tutorials. One thing we have noticed from the last time we did a tutorial roundup is that there are a lot, lot more tutorials being produced.
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!
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.
Back to a full week in the office and what could be better than four great Final Cut Pro X tutorials hot off YouTube. Thomas Grove Carter shows us his tips, tricks and shortcuts when he uses FCPX to edit an Audi commercial.
Four great free tutorials for you. We start off with a handy trick to add motion blur to projects and timelapses, then we look at spotting sound effects using clip connections. We finish with this week's MacBreak Studio taking sound from Final Cut Pro X into Logic Pro X and the latest episode of FCPX in under five minutes.
Ever lose an FCPX library somewhere on your hard drive? This week's MacBreak Studio will show you a trick to get them all organised. Plus we take a look at the first part of a tutorial on building superhero titles.
Victor Gusev from Moscow very kindly emailed in this quick tip for FCPX. How do you select a clip that is not on the main storyline without using a mouse?
Did you know you can take Apple's new 'Live Photos' and convert them into usable smooth video using Final Cut Pro X? Kenny Yin shows us how...
One of the things we enjoy about running the site is receiving news or tutorials about things in Final Cut Pro X that we would never think about. This is one example, a very clever trick for making progressive footage appear interlaced in an interlaced timeline.
