Karsten Schlüter replied to the topic 'Organization in large recurring projects' in the forum. 6 days ago

I'm with Ben: that isn't that much of material.
(back when I did my weekly football reports, 6 cams in use, 90min each, one season was ~1.2TB of material… handled with a MacMini)

There's one practical reason why to keep it all in one Lib: to make ALL material searchable, e.g. when you keyword material for a 'best of the year'/highlights reel. And: creating backups is more handy with a single Lib. Organize weekly material in Events; create one Event for 'standards'.-

Read the manual about 'keeping clips in place' on import = use one ext HDD for mass-storage/the 'raws', and keep the Library on another, 'clean' drive.

Create keywords/smartlists from the editors perspective = what are the criteria to search (and find ;) ) in edit? What criteria are 'automatic' (e.g. day of recording) = don't need to be keyworded? Do you need tech-specs (slowmos)? Read the manual about 'batch renaming'…

The better you prep your structure, the easier and faster is editing. But: there's lil' general advice, depends very much on your projects individual needs…

this caught my attention:
www.fcp.co/forum/2-off-topic/33325-wwdc-the-action-vision-app

Conc. 'first Macs with chips' … dare to say, easiest way to 'sell' the advantages of homebrewn silicon, are laptops, sort-of '24h battery life'. Because 'speed' is no asset in the consumer league, meanwhile any computer is 'fast enough'. Some überMacMini, a MiniPro, would be a step 2.....

Karsten Schlüter created a new topic ' WWDC: the Action & Vision app' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

in one of the 100s of videos for developers at WWDC, I found this lil' gem:



developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2020/10099
(you probably need an Dev Account to watch it … sorry!)

In my simple words: the app automatically identifies the 'goal', the player, the 'ball'/beansack, offers Body Pose Estimation, Trajectory Detection, and Contour Detection.

yep. 'just' an iPhone.app, but as soon as we see AppleSilicon in Macs… a nice feature for a future FCPX version.-

… app-store will be flooded with GolfTrainings apps soon LOL

a fully functioning, smooth working FCPX, running on an iPad (so to speak) … lame???
hmm... I come to a completely opposite conclusion.
Time will tell … :)

Just learned, Simon Ubsdell, undisputed Master of Motion, has shut down his channel of free Motion tuts - … oops????

Learned so much from him, he inspired me to many of my plugins (e.g. this one www.fcp.co/forum/generators/24259-volume...red-by-simon-ubsdell ) …

hmm? Of course, I'm curious in the reasons, but for sure, it's up to him to tell.-

too sad

sorry for being so old-school, but I would, aside videos, recommend as supplementary source, the build-in MANUAL … also available as free iBook books.apple.com/de/book/id976299089

Good to learn the concepts and terminology of FCPX

aside: thumbs-up for RippleTraining (free stuff @YT + commercial advice)
