An FCP tutorial with over 60 in-depth and easy to follow videos, more than 3 hours long, that you can view on your iPhone or iPad sounds like something that needs investigating.

If there is one side of editing that's really hot at the moment, it is making videos for social media. Apple has recognised this trend and announced a free app for iOS that will make posting those fun videos a lot easier. It's got some cool features too. Very cool.
This week, Apple was awarded a patent in the US for a media production application that breaks down a script, logs actors and locations and then automatically schedules the production. Interesting.
It's been a bit quiet here on FCP.co for a few reasons. One of them is a bit of a reorganisation, more on that in another article. The other reason is that we have been spending a lot of time on our iPad Pro and we rather like it.
A quick reaction from Avid to the release of FCPX 10.0.3 - they have launched Avid for the iPad! Yes could this be Avid's sign of moving into the iMovie/FCPX market?
Teaching video production skills to over 300 students in three days? No problem for Tom Morris when he hosted a mobile film workshop. Then two events happened in 2020 that made him realise that transferring shooting, editing and storytelling skills to young filmmakers can really change lives by giving them a voice in the community.
Graeme Nattress is a legend in the editing world, you've probably come across his excellent film look plugins. Today he's launched Chromagic, a colour correction plugin for Final Cut Pro that you can control with an iPad.

What a superb idea. Compile into a database all the common error codes you'll likely to come across on Mac based video editing software. Then wrap it all up into a searchable iPhone & iPad app for $1.99.
This is the latest really cool FCP app for the iPhone which also scales for iPad. There is a version for iPad on its way. Really instructive video tutorial from Taz Goldstein and Steve Martin. The audio is out of sync, but loads of great details. We love adding markers, subclipping, labels and names and all for just $2.99! All the links you need after the break. *UPDATE* We have replaced the video with a corrected version.
Whoa! hang on, don't spit your coffee out, this isn't a standalone Final Cut Pro X app running on an iPad, it's actually FCPX running remotely. We've seen this before but here Matts Macintosh shows us how well the GUI would work if FCPX was an iPad app. Interesting and frightening.
Take a look at ClipTouch, a Final Cut Server client for the iPad, developed to enable the use of iPads as review tools instead of having to maintain costly review workstations. At just $14.99 it's well worth the purchase. More after the break.
A thread appeared on our forum over the weekend on the possibility of taking iMovie projects off an iPad or iPhone and into FCPX. It's possible and we post the steps you'll need to take.
There are many iPad clapperboard apps out there, this one is different and certainly the coolest. For $200 you not only get the application but you also get your own chevron painted sticks on an iPad case to clap with.
We have overlooked many instances of new clapperboard iPad apps being released as there's a lot of them out there. QRSlate is slightly different as it tags the footage with a QR code for automatic recognition and logging info matching later. Clever.
Well the puck could certainly have travelled to here by the time the new FCP gets released. Amazing video of what you can do with the iPad2, wearing no silly glasses either! A bit of a tenuous link, granted but at least it breaks up the NAB stories.
If you haven't got your hands on one yet, then take a look at this iPad demo video from Apple. Could some of the features shown here in iMovie find their way into the new Final Cut Pro?

At CES in Las Vegas, axle Video announced Drive - a new low cost product that gives producers and editors remote access to media assets via a web browser. Could this be a cheap and secure way of getting online approval of productions?

We thought about a 'special story' for today but decided against it, so why not just post one that we found and laughed at this morning. We love this video from ThinkGeek, especially the first person in the add-on queue. Enjoy.
You might have seen we teased our Facebook page readers with a few images of PROCUTX last week. We are glad we held off publishing the story until now as the $24.99 app is now available on the App Store and is ready to use.
***Updated with embedded event video***
So no news from Apple about Final Cut Pro at the iPad2 event. However Randy Ubillos who headed up the team that gave birth to Final Cut over 10 years ago, was on stage to talk about iMovie. Is there anything we can learn?
If you are a regular reader on FCP.co, then you will be aware of Ripple Training's excellent range of tutorials for FCPX and Motion. They have just released a trial $1.99 iPad app based on the 10.0.6 update and they're after your feedback.

What’s the fastest way to learn filmmaking? Get a bunch of iPhones, Macbooks, Final Cut Pro X and Filmic Pro, a ton of mobile filmmaking gear, and go make some movies together. That’s what they did at PBS station WDSE in Duluth, Minnesota with Cirina Catania, Aubrey Mozino, Sam Mestman and We Make Movies’ Smartphone Studio. With the new iPhone 11 now available, we’re pretty excited about seeing all of this go to the next level.

When the iPhone version of this storyboard creation app was launched, we thought it was pretty cool but maybe the size of the iPhone made everything a bit fiddly to work. Now Cinemek have released a version that also works on the iPad which gives the app a new lease of life with the extra real estate.
In the past it's always been a bit of a problem getting a monitoring signal out of a DSLR so other people can watch. Indiespot.tv caught up with Teradek's Rod Clark at the DV Expo.
Another new exciting niche of companion applications has started with OverlayPro from Videotic. Use an iOS device to record speed and altitude and then overlay the statistics in FCPX.
This landed in our in box this morning. Although nothing to do with FCP, it looked so awesome we thought we would post this beast of a 3D camera as news.
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!
Want to log on set on an iOS device or in a browser and then have all the keywords imported into Final Cut Pro X ready to edit? The Lumberjack System is a clever and quick way of first logging and then getting all that data into FCPX.
We have seen quite a few iPad applications that can store notes when reviewing cut sequences. But what about an app for logging on the fly so that important quotations can be found with ease in the edit suite?
The biggest Apple news of 2020 was the start of the transition of the Mac to Apple silicon. Alex Gollner writes about how the transition might go over the next two years. Tell us what you think in the comments below!

Controlling Final Cut Pro X from a iPhone or iPad isn't new. What is new however is Editmote 2 which gains added Final Cut Pro X support, gestures and more. We also have 3 copies to give away.
