At NAB 2106, there will be many interesting storage solutions on display. This will be one of them, a shared RAID of 120 TB over 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports from Accusys.
Active Storage have come up with a Metadata controller that looks like the now defunct Xserve. They're very proud of their new baby especially its ''out of the box'' readiness.
Our taster article about Cantemo Portal (DAM) and FCPX proved to be very popular. So we are very pleased to publish a superb in depth article by Jonathan Eric Tyrrell called 'Working with Cantemo Portal.' He's also published a new workflow video showing how Cantemo and Final Cut Pro X work together.
Wow! Two great bits of FCP news in two days. The new MacBook Pros that have been released today feature 'Thunderbolt' Apples branding of Light Peak technology from Intel.
One of the big stumbling blocks for the acceptance of Final Cut Pro X with professional editors has been its use on shared storage. Apple have published a white paper of Xsan Best Practices, it makes interesting reading.
We've been expecting it for a while, Apple have released a free update to Final Cut Pro X. New features are included and some features announced for the future.
With Apple announcing support for shared storage this week for FCPX, ProMAX have timed this free webinar rather well.
How do you keep all your custom Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5 effects synchronised across multiple machines? Turner Hall sent us this handy tip.
Active Storage are teasing us with this countdown to Monday where a machine to replace the EOL'd Apple XServe might be announced. They have a pretty good track record too..
We have tried quite a few asset management systems here at FCP.co and they all have one thing in common, they are complicated. Axle Video may have the answer to individuals and companies who want a simple way to share assets.
When Apple axed Final Cut Server, it left a void in the digital asset management (DAM) market. Possible replacement company Cantemo has published a sneak video preview on the FCPX and Cantemo Portal workflow.
It has been a few crazy days of Apple news and we've loved every leak, tweet and article that we have come across. However it is only now that we are coming to realise how massive the new announcements really are. Prepare for a shock...
If you've been editing with FCPX then you will know it is an all or nothing approach with showing your media in the event library. Here are two solutions that get round that problem, one gives Xsan compatibility too.
We all know that we will be able to download OS X Lion from the Mac App Store in July. But what if you have multiple seats that need upgrading and would a possible volume licence apply to other (ahem) downloadable apps in the future?
Everybody knows the next release of the the Mac operating system will be called El Capitan. But how many people have heard of the DLC that comes with it? What is it, what does it do and how will it affect editors?
***Updated with embedded YouTube HD video of keynote***
With no new hardware and no sign of FCPX, Steve Jobs' keynote speech was nevertheless a classic. We detail some of the points that will relate to the Pro Apps user. How about a 97% price reduction for one!
