Ronny Courtens was lucky enough to spend some time again with James Tonkin from Hangman Studios. James has had a new Mac Pro & Pro Display XDR in his studio for the last month and Ronny asked James about his experience working on real-life projects with the new machine.
It has been a busy day for news. First of all we have the Mac Pro release, then the Colour Finale 2 update and of course our YouTube live show. Now Apple has released FCPX 10.4.8 and macOS Catalina 10.15.2. And yes the 16 inch MacBook Pro clicks have gone!
We welcome FCPX stalwart Bill Davis to FCP.co. He tell us about his first week with the new 16 inch MacBook Pro. How did he migrate his data? What did he lose? Did he get any audio clicking?
Another superb Final Cut Pro X user story from Ronny Courtens. This time he talks to Chris Hocking from LateNite Films who post produced 'Neighbours - Erinsborough High' on FCPX. How did he convince the production team to use FCPX when the long-running original Neighbours is cut on Avid?
Many people asked why didn't we do more tests with the new 16" MacBook Pro on the launch day. We can now explain why, we found an annoying audio bug with Final Cut Pro X 10.4.7 and Catalina.
Today Apple has announced that the 15 inch MacBook Pro range has been replaced by the new 16 inch MacBook Pro. It gets a bigger screen, new keyboard, new sound system, better GPU and larger storage capacity. We take if for an early test drive with some 8K 60FPS ProRes RAW footage in HDR in FCPX!
We are looking forward to the release of the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR. We now know more about the release date and have more information on both.
