We have had many Final Cut Pro X user stories here on FCP.co across many genres, feature films, sport and episodic programming to name a few. One area we haven't covered is comedy, that is until now. Nuno Bernardo from beActive entertainment tells us how the TV3 documentary 'The Stand Ups' was cut on FCPX.
Did we ever think that we would write a headline that included naked swimming and Final Cut Pro X? No we didn't, but this story from Matt Holder gave us the ideal opportunity to do exactly that.

We are very pleased to publish part two of the story of how the Hollywood feature film Focus was cut on Final Cut Pro X.
This time we concentrate on how it was used and how the Libraries, Events and Projects were set up. Exactly how did Jan Kovac edit? What keyboard and control surfaces did he use? How did he trim? (Yes we asked that dynamic trimming question!) And the biggest job of all, how did he and his team keep everything organised?
We finish off with what Jan Kovac the Editor and the Directors Glenn Ficarra & John Requa liked about FCPX, what they didn’t like and some good ideas for the future.
