We have known it has been in beta for a while, but today, Apple released the next macOS - 10.15 Catalina. We answer the questions about 32-Bit apps and legacy media using old codecs, especially Avid's DNX series. But the number one new feature for us is the ability for FCPX to output the viewer video to an iPad using Sidecar!

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.

We are very pleased to welcome Steve Bayes to FCP.co as a regular contributor. Steve up until a year ago was the product manager for Final Cut Pro X, so although he can't talk about future FCPX plans, we look forward to him sharing his 30 years of post production wisdom with us.

"When I would tell you have to pack everything you need for a year to live, produce and deliver a documentary series from the road into a 4WD and a camper trailer, would you call me crazy or jump at the opportunity?"

We are very excited to publish the first part of Carsten Orlt's amazing Final Cut Pro X user story. Making good documentaries is hard enough, but working from a mobile base adds another level of hassle and complexity!

Apple's Motion is now over 15 years old, so time to give FCPX's backbone companion app a little love. In the article below we take a look back, but the live chat will end up looking forward. Where is Motion going next? What features will the next Motion have and what would Motion benefit from getting. We discuss, live on YouTube!
