Adobe have announced that the latest version of Photoshop, CS6 is now in beta and available for free download. Yes the interface has gone dark and yes it can edit video too.
And you thought your first $4.99 spend of today would be a sandwich at lunchtime! Possibly not as everybody in the FCP.co office this morning has been busy downloading the new Photoshop Touch app onto their phones. It's going to be popular.
A nice update. Adobe even admit to borrowing a few features from other NLE's. Get a tour of the new features of Premiere and the other apps with a 43 minute demo video after the break.
A mix of excitement and disappointment after this year's Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco this year. The new MacBook Pro with a retina display running an updated Final Cut Pro looks gorgeous, but same form factor MacPros without Thunderbolt are a bit of a letdown.
Not an FCPX story, but an accidental discovery via Twitter. With machine learning set to take a bigger role in editing, one Twitter account is already auto-colourising photos.Spoiler: They are doing video too.
Rays, you either love them or hate them, but used right they can add a lot of impact or subtle realism. Digital Film Tools have upgraded their Rays plugin to work with Final Cut Pro X.
Wes James delivers another tutorial on how to achieve that 'Home Improvement' transition style, you know the one where the picture gets cut up and then slides on or off.
This video is just too good to hold back until Friday. A brilliant tongue in cheek look at the retouching of model shots, a behind the scenes video too.
Moving up a level from the Ken Burns moves is the technique of modifying and animating layers of a photo for 'The Kid Stays in the Picture' effect. What it is, and how to do it in this new MacBreak Studio episode.
Making 3D material is still not easy, so how difficult is it to make a 3D menu to start off your 3D Blu-ray disk? To be honest we wouldn't have a Scooby where to start, luckily we know a man who has produced an excellent half hour tutorial to show us how.
In this week's MacBreak Studio we have an appointment with Satan. Well almost, Steve Martin (not Satan!) shows us why Final Cut Pro X has an Adobe style 'Dynamic Linking' built right in.
A breath of fresh air after so much negativity over the last few days about a certain new piece of software. We had so many people viewing the last Photoshop tutorial by Sean Armenta from FStoppers, we thought we'd post this follow up.
With tutorials sometimes we forget that some users are just starting out to use a program, they want good basic advice rather than the wizz bang how-to. This tutorial is a good look at the basics of using layers and masks in Photoshop.
OK, maybe the title is a bit over the top but if you've ever had to do cutouts for motion graphics you will love this refined extraction process in Photoshop CS5.
We thought this was interesting as it parallels Final Cut Pro's transition from the 32 bit Carbon API into the 64 bit world of Cocoa. Now why can't the Apple team make a video like this?
Bad news all round. It looks like Adobe have been the victim of a rather nasty attack. Time to change your Adobe password PDQ.
Introduced in the 10.0.3 update, FCPX now supports layered Photoshop files. An unmissable 10 minutes from the MacBreak Studio guys on using those files in Final Cut Pro X.
It's the old problem on a 5D shoot, you're budget doesn't stretch to lighting your night time exterior to match that Hollywood blockbuster, so what do you do? Go with your underlit shot, and trust that the darkness reflects the mood you want to evoke? Well, here's the low budget answer thanks to Robino Films. More after the break.
You may ask "What has Inkling got to do with Final Cut Pro?" Well not a lot, but it is so cool we thought we would have to mention this new product from Wacom.
