We take a look back at the Final Cut Pro X user stories we posted during 2014 on FCP.co. The year started early with 10.1 and the new Mac Pro, high profile jobs and announcements over the Summer and finished off with some very creative examples of FCPX in action at the end. Enjoy a jolly good read, we did!
We have official confirmation that there is no new MacBreak Studio today. No need to worry, we still have Steve and Mark's five minutes of wisdom each.

How does one link an animation in Motion? This week's MacBreak Studio explains all. In a seasonal mode, Mark Spencer shows how to add snow to a scene in Motion and we get a customised Christmas card from Steve Martin.
In the first of what we can see of a few plugin manufacturer 'consolidations', long-time plugin developer Boris FX has acquired the makers of the popular Mocha planar tracker, Imagineer Systems Ltd.
An update of Final Cut Library Manager to version 2.60. Bugs fixed, Yosemite compatibility and great new killer feature!
A complete mix of tutorials from Ripple this week. Heavyweight RED workflow from Steve and audio crossfades and exploding text with Motion from Mark.
A production in Australia used Final Cut Pro X to edit films for multiple screens in a live performance. Video, music, dancers and over 60 live cues in the show - how was it done?
Ever wanted to add a small logo or icon to a lower third or bullet point on screen? This new $49 plugin for Final Cut Pro X has 50 to choose from.
