Marcus Moore replied to the topic 'FCPX on iPad Pro' in the forum. 5 years ago

I understand what you're saying ButchM, but if you think an iPad Pro would need to run full applications, then it wouldn't be an iPad, it would be a touchscreen Mac- which which opens up a whole other can of worms around OS X and UI touch target sizes.

An iPad Pro doesn't have to be a pro product for everyone to qualify. A MacBookPro wouldn't be a good professional computer for some use cases- But with its emphasis on larger screen sizes and beefier internals, that's the distinction Apple has chosen to make with it's laptops.

For now, the size and both touch and stylus input enhancements of the iPad are what separate it from the rest of the line. As I said, I'll be curious to see what happens if that touchscreen latency and stylus support comes to the rest of the lineup. At that time, the distinction may not be so clear. But then again by that point they may well have found other ways to distinguish it from the Mini and the Air- if this is meant to be Apple's goal with the iPad Pro.

ButchM- if your measure of any product called Pro is that it has to work for the Professional discipline of every creative/professional field, then I think you're expectations are overreaching.

At $899, an iPad Pro may not be a laptop replacement, but it's a heck of a artists tablet- insanely competitive on price with comparable products from the industry leader.

Professional editing may always be compromised on a pure tablet device. Maybe that's never going to be it's calling.

As with all sorts of products, just cause it isn't for me, doesn't mean it's not for anyone. I think Apple will find loads of success with the iPad Pro, with artist and professionals of all stripes. Video editors just aren't one of them (at least for now).

People shouldn't strain themselves trying to figure out why the the new iPad is "Pro"- it is simply because it expands usability in several key areas vs the rest of the lineup.

1. Screen size- which does make a difference for a lot of applications, especially when you bring iOS's new multitasking into consideration. Also the reason this iPad has 4GB of RAM instead of the Air2's 2GB.
2. reduced touchscreen input latency- both for traditional touch input and most importantly for...
3. Stylus input- which allows for a dramatic improvement in it potential use as a Wacom replacement. I've already read some reviews saying that the reduced amount of air between the surface and the screen, as well as great low-latency when using the Pencil already make it a fairly attractive alternative, as long as you can live with the 12.9" display vs much larger Cintiqs. Plus, the iPad Pro screen's color accuracy and resolution is a huge step up over Wacom's panels.
4. Enhance keyboard tools and integration- though some of this is iOS9 wide.

Artists will undeniably benefit most from this product- I know I'll be taking a hard look at whether to sell my Cintiq and buy one of these (and have money left over for an AppleTV).

It's taken Apple a lot longer than I would have thought to bring more artist specific tools to the iPad. The point I'm most curious about is whether future Air's or Mini's will gain Pencil support.

By the way, I'd love to read a "ROLES REDUX: PART 2" article. Maybe you can figure out how to visually organice the magnetic timeline into Role regions before Apple does! :lol:

Unfortunately the show I'm on is leaving me very little time for speculation and blogging for the rest of this year. The followup post would have largely expanded on what I've written before and added a bit more visual embellishment, but my previous blog post on Roles sums up my thoughts pretty well.

Hey Guys. Late to the party on this, but looks like you're going down the right path.

Here's some thoughts I had on this last year.

Apple released updates to FCPX in the weeks leading up to both NAB2012 [10.0.4] and NAB 2013 [10.0.8].

It will be interesting to see if Apple will update on user numbers in their press briefings.

hoping for the option to turn off clip labels so I can have a less noisy timeline.

You do have some options for labeling in the Timeline appearance menu, but not eliminating them entirely. I don't think any of the major NLE's allow for this.

This is all great news Denver. Tracking masks is certainly something we in the FCPX community have been dreaming about, even if it was only a simple 2D tracker with shape masks. But if your aspirations are grander, so much the better!

Thanks very much for the reply Denver, I know I've been peppering this question here, there and everywhere since you posted the teaser video this morning.

In a reply on Facebook, Denver does say that masks/qualifiers will not be part of the initial release. This will certainly hobble it to some degree.

Yes, we've already had confirmation that this won't be an overlay interface.

Here's a link to a thread on REDUSER.net teasing the product as well

www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?127...-Tool-Coming-to-FCPX

The OP there is clear that this is a screen cap from the promotional video, and not the interface itself. That's probably caused some of the confusion.

Unfortunately by Page 3, the thread had devolved into colourist elitism and Denver defending himself in a personal quarrel over an unrelated issue- so the thread is now locked. It's too bad, with Denver posting we might have teased some more details out of him...

It's great to hear that this interface won't be an image overlay like some other ones have been. supposedly FXPlug3 support allowed for more complex plug-in interfaces. Perhaps that's what we're seeing here.
