It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to spot that we haven't posted a new article here apart from the FCPX update for a week. So what is wrong and why has the FCP news feed that's been active for nearly five years been put on pause?
**FxPlug runtime bug in secondary storylines fixed**
Well we decided to break our self imposed silence with news of Apple's updates across all of their professional video applications.
After some heavy FCPX sessions, we thought it was a good idea to document one of the most annoying bugs with Final Cut Pro X, OS X and external audio. With some amazing timing and help we also found a fix!
A bit later in the week, but that is down to us experimenting with Final Cut Pro X and DaVinci Resolve (11) more than anything. Time to catch up with the latest tutorials from Ripple, there's also a new paid tutorial on what's new in Resolve 12.
From the day of its release, Frame.io the cloud based review & collaboration platform has had great user reviews. It even got top billing on Apple's App Store page. Now there's a couple of updates that add more functionality and they've also published some interesting user numbers.
We have often looked at the animated globe maps in iMovie and wished they could have been included in FCPX. Thanks to a clever trick, you can have access to the maps and globes directly in Final Cut Pro X without having to re-render each one out as a movie.
Were you one of the ones from Europe that wanted to go to the FCPX Creative Summit because of the Apple presentation, but couldn't make it? Looks like the show might be coming across the pond for IBC 2015 in Amsterdam.
Final Cut Pro X's speed and thus the benefits are gradually becoming recognised by editors in the industry. So on a new Retina MacBook Pro, how does Adobe's Premiere Pro match up to FCPX's performance, especially with 4K? Badly as Max Yuryev found out in his video. We are looking forward to the comments about this one!
We've been the proud owner of a Retina MacBook Pro as soon as we could get our hands on one after they were announced in 2012. So how does the latest model from Apple compare? Has it changed much, is it quicker and is it worth changing to? We experiment.
Three new tutorials to watch from the Ripple stable this week. Adding bling to text, making your own HUDs in Motion and drawing your own curve in a transition in DaVinci Resolve 12
How do you know Final Cut Pro X is popular? When you have to move into a tent as you've grown out of the usual meeting room! The recent FCPX meeting in Buenos Aires hosted by Leonardo Hancevich (Leo Hans) was a huge success.
A quick tip to start the week off with. Did you know that you can add a list of keywords right into the Keyword Editor without having to click each field first?
Batch exporting in FCPX on MacBreak Studio and timelapse building in the new podcast The Primary Storyline
A very handy application for batch exporting projects out of Final Cut Pro X in this week's MacBreak Studio. We also feature a tutorial on building timelapses in the first episode of a new FCPX podcast.
