XAVC-L files from the Sony FS5 now imports without the complete file structure from the sd card! In 10.2.2 you only got the audio if you tried to import individual xavc-l files.
Thumbs up!!

To other C300 MKII folks... Just did the update to FCPX 10.2.3, inserted the CFast card from the C300 MKII and tried to import some footage. FCPX did not see the clips inside the Contents folder. I had to move the Clips folder to the top level and then it worked... This was the same with the pervious version. Not sure what I'm missing or doing wrong here... Thoughts? Thank you!

Default Video and Audio FX can be changed in FX Browser which follows the Keyboard Command for them.

Multiple YouTube accounts? Really? Who the f*!# needs that? Is that what programmers waste time on? Well, crossing figures we'll see major functionality improvements/enhancements just before NAB.

I upload to multiple client YouTube accounts regularly. However, I have never done a share to YouTube or Vimeo direct from FCPX. I never saw the point of that feature. I prefer to export a master, make a YouTube/Vimeo submission submaster and then upload manually. I prefer to set all my security/metadata stuff manually - and I like to have those master files archived for future use or sharing with the client. I don't like giving up that control.

I just upload ProRes masters. I have clients, they pay for my bandwidth, it isn't an issue for someone making a living. Unless you live way more rural than I do, and there's simply no such bandwidth. But yeah, I agree, who gives a fart about direct uploads to YT of FB? There are WAY more vital things we need. Better multicam, etc, would have been preferable to most then 3D text, which I, and most editors I know, use rarely.

I'm very disappointed that this update does not fix a bug that occurs when you rename a clip in the timeline. If you do that, after restarting the application the clip you renamed will have lost it's used medial indicator in the browser. This bug has been around for quite a while; I've reported it - and was told my report was a duplicate of another report. I was hoping for a fix. I could make good use of both renaming clips in the timeline and having the used media indicator working.

I guess this makes a big feature release before NAB unlikely, not that that's been an Apple target in recent years.

You don't get more rural than the arse end of Africa, my download speed on a good day, is around 150kilo bites/bytes per second, and my upload around 25 kilobits/bytes per second.

It takes hours to upload a few seconds of video to youtube/vimeo, so well I just don't upload. 30min to an hour of video might take 36 hours!!!

Slow does still exist, I am on the slowest publicly available network.

I just try to imagine a conference room, huge whiteboard, titled "What next", engineering & marketing people start to brainstorm, finally someone wipes off the 'not next'-items...

And 'multiple YT accounts support' made it!

either, some engineer was incredible bored and made it in a minute, or somone completely lost prioriies…
I'm … surprised, best said.

.... :unsure:

I say bugger all that, ask those that use the thing every day, or at least have a vested financial stake in the thing, that is the editors, you and me.

Sorry I so don't buy any logic that Apple cares, they care way way more about the musicians than with video editors, even though many are both, Logic has a better updating, listen to the users than the FCPX team.

150 days, is a long time, this minor update, what is has done is made the community more angry as the updating was long overdue, and basically fixed the timecode window, something we stopped caring about 149 days ago.

I agree, who gives a rose about multiple youtube accounts, how many blog to more than 1 account, hell I have trouble keeping up with 1 twitter account with about 100 followers, multiple youtube accounts, a nightmare, and this was important to Apple???

Something is not right, I can picture the same conference room, Jony comes in and says, get a fix out there to shut up the users, and so off they went, fixed the solution in less than a month, yet nothing was posted to fix.

Again I ask the question, we know months in advance about the new version of Mac OSX through the very public, very well reported beta system, no secrets in that aspect of Apple, so why with a tiny app called FCPX/Logic X?

Why not have 2 versions, public master 10.2.3 as it is today, and a public beta 10.3? We can see the updates, report on issues, it was be a form of internal voting, surely this helps guide workflow, I am confused, and wish I knew who asked for multiple youtube accounts???

Yet Richard Taylor and many others ask about scrolling timeline, like scrubbing on/off, yet this is not in, 1 timecode window, not two...a separate window for clip, timeline duration, instead of doing the control D, then having to press esc to exit, damn annoying.

Dammit Apple, choose one path, and stick with it, either no secrets or total secrecy...

Yes I would have preferred to have waited for a 1-2GB massive download for each of the 3, FCP, Motion, Compressor instead of this tiny update, which fixed basically a error in the timecode window. No saving workspace, no audio sliders, so I am bassically disappointed in this update! It did not need to happen. It could and should have been held back and released later.

I don't get the youtube multiple accounts. Then again, I didn't get 3D text.

I did not want to use the E O L, that was what I was trying to infer with "something is not right". It feels kind of we are in that region, it kind of feels end of life for this product.

The zero effort marketing has put into it, the lack of video on the "in action" page, the 6 months between updates, the lack of any meaningful useful updates, 3D text is ok, truthfully was expecting a rebadged LiveType to be released.

I hope if FCPX is EOL, Adobe stops with the rental, I hate piracy, but I cannot afford the costs of a monthly subscription that is more than my rent...

I removed the 'EOL' comment because it was a bit strong but it certainly feels to me as if there's not much love for FCPX from Apple - and I was concerned what would happen when Randy left. A strong update would help put those fears to rest.

Default effect shortcut will save a lot of time adding ColorFinale to clips which is good!

Rant aside, I'd be very interested to hear from someone about the libraries over SAN and how this helps with multiple editors as it's something I'm going to need to know upscaling this year.

Also, if there's more stability in FCPX which has been shaky since El Capitan, I'll be happy :-)

Frustrated at the seeming lack of love by Apple is how I feel, I feel that Apple is slowly killing FCPX, if you get annoyed you will look somewhere else, for a tool that works.

Doing 1 or 2 updates a year, not putting in obvious improvements sends a clear message, "We feel development of this product does not warrant the time and money you feel it does"

Obvious features lacking, yet someone suggested multiple youtube accounts..A feature I would never see the obvious need for.

End of Life, through the lack of investment it feels like that, this update does not change my mind in that regard.

What surprised reaction since you early access!

BenB wrote: Did you not see I wrote "Verified"? But hey, if you want to argue with RT themselves, go right ahead.

Again, RT, Larry Jordan, myself, no one who has access to an unreleased version would have post, or be allowed by Apple to post a screen shot, video, or any information about it. Simple fact.

But, believe what you want...


But why not I can agencies finding this feature very useful. Besides maybe it was on the top of the request list.

… talking about EOL is completely nonsense, and you know it :silly:
FCPX is a highly developed, professional tool which sells like icecream in summer.
Some comments around the web read like written from a disappointed lover…

I guess, 'we' expected a lil' more than just a minor maintenance update… that roles/LX thingie, or some new 'killer' feature.


… but why 'multiple YT accounts' made it in this update is still a mystery for me... :blink:

For the time it has taken to get it out, that was very underwhelming. Well at least they've supposedly fixed two things that bugged the hell out of me:
  • The playhead could jump ahead when editing short titles
  • The timeline could stop playback when switching views in the Browser

There are only two major things I'd like to see myself now, audio mixing improvements (and we know they have a patent for this) and ability to set different default window layouts.
