Last year, we published an article from Mark Spencer on how Final Cut Pro X was used to edit the National Bioneers Conference. This year, he's edited a video together showing the workflow he used on the 2015 conference with some tips and tricks for editing long multicam shows.
Over a year ago, an article was written in response to some very bad journalism and blogging about Final Cut Pro X. It never got published, but in the wake of a similar article surfacing last week, we thought we would dig it out. It was written in October 2014 and has been very slightly updated to reflect the new Apple hardware. Enjoy!
New toys and new fun. We have been putting the new iPad Pro through its paces this week and we thought a quick post and a couple of videos about our first thoughts would be good. Yes we do mention 4K editing in iMovie and Duet!

It might be Friday the 13th of November, but it is not all bad. Seeing as we haven't done one for a while, we thought we would do a round up the free products out there. This time is a smorgasbord of non-fcpx delights!
Christmas has come early for Final Cut Pro X editors. Coremelt has released a free version of its popular SliceX plugin for FCPX that applies masks to tracked objects.
If we had to put bet the ranch on a different NLE giving Final Cut Pro X a good run for its money, it would be Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve. Curious about the editing toolset in Resolve? Ripple Training has announced an editing and finishing tutorial and we have a 20% coupon code.
Sony has released an update of their SxS UDF driver especially for El Capitan. This is good news if the compatibility problem has been holding off the upgrade to OS 10.11.
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.
After three years of constant prodding from us here at FCP.co, Alex Gollner has finally launched his first pack of commercial plugins for FCPX. Packed full with 120 different effects, he's been busy!
We hope you have a large coffee ready this Monday morning as we are publishing all the videos from the recent FCP Exchange event in Los Angeles. Enjoy!
Just when you thought you had got your head around the Color Board, along comes the Color Cone from Picture Instruments. Before you dismiss the idea, the company was one of the first to offer LUTs to video editors. And we all know what has happened since then!
