I assume you mean "now gone"

I can't help but think there were some under the hood changes to FCPX and Motion as a precursor to reimplementing round tripping.

Check to see what happens with older templates you built with it.

You are very correct.

If you work with Prores Media in FCPX, and you grade with the color board, even pretty complex grades render and export VERY quickly in my opinion. Even 4 color grades on top of each other go very quick.
Magic Bullet Looks is SUPER slow in comparison.

That being said, I think MBL is a good package. It has good presets, but the way you can very easily make your own presets is very easy and powerful at the same time.

This is why FCPX grading practically warrants its own thread.
I see different levels of needs and features depending on the project.

I see MBL as a faster alternative to Resolve in that one doesn't have to deal with an external app and handling client changes are less likely to throw you for a workflow loop. MBL has filters and levels of control not possible in the color board... when such stuff is needed.

Color Board is amazingly powerful for built in grading features, great for making corporate work look nicer without having to deal with slow rendering or go out to an external app. The missing features really do bother me though (I've listed those previously). There are some plugins which cover some of those though.

Does anyone know how MBL compares to FX Factory pro or the crumplepop color suite? I got fx factory for free when I worked at apple so I've just been playing with that. But haven't gotten super deep into looks plugins because the stuff I shoot doesn't really require it.

Yanobox Moods (which gives you color wheels) and Nattress Levels & Curves (which gives you curves) cover a couple of key features some find missing from the Color Board approach.

I've got Colorsuite and I'm sorry but it's not something I'm not impressed with at all.

I would invest money in learning how to grade not buying off the shelf half baked presets.

I look at the amount of money I've made off FCPX in the past year, warts and all; that $299 investment seems infinitesimally small.

So I'd be happy to make it again. Especially when a paid update would be sure to come with lots of new features and functionality.


I can only agree.

So far, that $299 I've paid has made me $1000 (though it's only been 1 paid gig so far, from last month)

I've got a new freelance gig in a couple of weeks at $5000 which will be an FCPX project.

...so, all in all, I think 'X' has pretty much earned its keep.

Sorry to continue the thread drift to MBL, but it's worked out well for me - always loved the traditional Colorista, the curves and levels are good, the skin thing has saved bacon so many times... a good set of tools in one plug-in, though yes it is slow. Expensive? Yes, until it saves dodgy shots, sprinkles magic on your grade delighting clients, and over time it's been a good investment.

Never used any of the presets. ;)

Adding Tumbleweed to the drifting thread. This looks rather cool!

Is it just me, or do y'all think April Fools Day is not the best day to introduce a new legitimate product?

Not much of a spoof is it? Is anyone really that interested in something like this?

....I always thought the next FCPX version that we'd be inclined and/or required to pay for would be FCPX 11.
