Looks like this will be handy, a free webinar about managing media inside and outside FCP. The webinar starts at 10:00 PST 10th March 2011 and runs for an hour and a half. Sorry about the short notice, but if they would have emailed us we could have posted this a while ago.
It seems that everybody now can work Final Cut Pro. To say you can't risks being overlooked for a job, not being able to join in "What Codec" chats down the pub or more embarrassing, having to ask for help when you've messed up the screen trying. Fear no more, Pro Apps expert Alex Snelling has compiled his top ten FCP GUI errors from his years of teaching fresh new editors.
Just as we were turning off our machines for the night, we spotted this. Has Canon let slip the new codec for the 5DmkIII? If so does that mean the end of transcoding clips for FCP?

This time Rick covers scratch disks, isolating a colour and that old problem of losing your image because you've gone into wireframe mode. yeup we've all been confused by that one once.
I feel a bit of a theme coming on here. 'Tutorial Tuesday' ok, maybe not, but we do have tutorials stacked up like planes coming in to land at Heathrow on a friday night. First up is Izzy with his amazing 7 hour collection.
We wish we hadn't seen this video. It gives us another reason to want to rush out and buy a new 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 MacBook Pro, if Thunderbolt wasn't enough! We will post the rendering speed results after the break, but I urge you to watch one of the most elegant bench tests going.
It started off as a few posts on Twitter about the Change Speed Segment feature. It grew into a bigger conversation to whether speedramps are latest effect that ranks number one on the list of tacky 'eye candy' editing techniques. Are we right or wrong?
Whoa! This guy shoots from the hip. Of course I didn't mean with his camera on a brand new Zacuto waist rig, I meant he doesn't mince his words when it comes to the 5D. He does sum up the passion for this Japanese 'accident' rather well though.
