At first glance we think it just might be. Chunky transport buttons, an optically encoded jog wheel and two banks of assignably keys. We like.
The biggest FCPX story for us of the show so far is the slightly unexpected but very welcome news that EVS will support growing files by the end of the year.
The exhibition isn't even open yet and there are already headlines being written. New cameras, Blackmagic Design gets their cheque book out again, 4K everywhere and a very interesting piece of FCPX news that we are tracking down.
It got moved to a new time to help us on this side of the pond, but still some people managed to miss it! Good job Pixel Corps has published the whole two hours online.
UPDATE NVIDIA card problem fixed
We saw the plugin pop up on Twitter last week, but didn't really take any notice until an FCP.co forum member posted an example online and we checked out out the price.
Batch exporting from FCPX, spray paint stencils in Motion and replacing clips whilst keeping attributes
FCPX has been criticised for not having a batch export, good job we have top people on the case to make getting a bunch of sequences out of Final Cut Pro X happen fast!
If you work in broadcast then you will be very familiar to having to keep an eye on video levels. Nobody loves a rejected master. Eyejeight has just announced the availability of a plugin legaliser to make sure your whites aren't too white.
A short headline, but one that will have an immense impact on the broadcast and post production industry across the world. The BBC has chosen Final Cut Pro X as its NLE for news editing, but this is the tip of the iceberg as the move to FCPX is spreading fast across other departments.
In rather a shock move to us, Hamburg PRO Media has withdrawn its FCPX products from sale. Why? Have they been bought and if so, who would buy them?
Time to catch up with this week's set of Ripple tutorials. An extra lesson on media managing, text in video and how to track a person in Motion.
