✎ Latest Free FCPX Effects

Hello all, I would like to share my previous full feature doc called "Hermogenes, professor and poet of Yoga", released in theatres in Brazil in 2015. I am the editor and did everything inside FCPX. The movie was screened for 12 weeks in more than 15 cities and was the 7h most watched documentary in that year.

Since we are in quarantine, I shared it for free in Youtube. We need uplifting content theses days.

Let me know what you think. Any question regards the editing process, hit me up!
Thank you.

A little bit off-topic, but how's your experience with Chromatic? Thinking about buying it, but can't make my mind. I'm not sure if it's worth 99 or if I should purchase Color Finale. Thanks!

I just purchased version 4.2.2, upgraded from NeatVideo V3. I emailed them and they told me that their latest version works well in FCPX 10.3. I Just worked on a project and applied NeatVideo and it took a long time to render, but after that the playback is fine. I'm on El Capitan.

Frandu created a new topic ' Getting subtitle out of FCPX - a big problem!' in the forum. 4 years ago

Hello all,

I really hope that someone could help me.
Let me explain: I have a full-feature doc that was completely edited and graded in FCPX (23.98fps). So far, so good!
I hired a translation company to subtitle my film in English and Spanish. They delivered me 2 srt's. So far, so good!

To ingest this srt, I purchased Spherico X-Title Importer and voila, all subs were in my timeline. I made necessary adjustments to them and was ready to go. So far, so good!

I need to keep the format I did to the subtitles, so I need and STL. I exported the XML to Spherico X-Title Extractor, to make the STL. A BIG PROBLEM!

What is happening is that the subtitles are getting out of sync. It goes well at the beginning but at the end I get 3 seconds or more of sync.

Just to inform you that the project is 23.98 and the subtitle's project is 23.98 also (a must to export the XML to Spherico).
But somehow it's not working and some encoding houses are demanding me a solution, that I don't have.

Are there any other way to get a STL out of FCPX?
Please note that I can't use an SRT because of the font format I need to keep. See an example attached. In some parts I have 4 lines of subtitles, 2 on the upper side and 2 on the downer side.
Any help will be much appreciated!
Thanks.

Hello FCP.co members,
Yesterday I was watching the videoclip Ballad Of The Mighty I and at the TC 3:00 I could see FCPX, probably this videoclip was edited on it. Cool.

Here's the link:

Hello FCP.co friends,

I'll screen my documentary soon in the theatres, edited in FCPX. It's been almost 3 years of ingesting footage, cutting, color correction, audio treatment, all inside FCPX.

But my question is about the projection itself. I don't have the time to do a DCP (maybe will try DCPBuilder just to test it), so I'll go to rMBP 2015 and HDMI to the theatre projector.

The question is: Should I put the MOV ProRes 422 file in my rMBP 2015 SSD and play it from there? Or should I put on an external hard drive (in this case, it is a FW800 Iomega or a Samsung usb3.0)?

Please note that the file is somewhat 90GB.

Any advices will be highly appreciate.

Frandu created a new topic ' Audio levels for Broadcast inside FCPX' in the forum. 5 years ago

Hello all,

I came across a doubt that I don't find a solution. I'm just levelling the audio of my indie full feature documentary, will probably go to compressor, voice enhancement, etc, etc.
But which level should I go? Dialogues, music and FXs?
I've read that I can't go up -6db, but what about when you have dialogues and music playing together? Is the headphone trustful?

Thank you!

Frandu created a new topic ' Documentary Color Correction inside FCPX' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hello guys,

I'm about to start the CC of an indie full feature documentary. I'll have to do it all by myself. At first I was thinking going to Resolve, but the learning curve and the tough deadline will not work together. So, I have to do it inside FCPX.

The question is: should I do it manually everything inside FCPX or should I buy some mLUT or Red Giant Magic Bullet to give a better look? When I used Magic Bullet a few years ago, I thought that the plugin produced noise in the footage, but maybe today is way better.

What do you think? Any suggestions?
Thank you.

Hello Tom, thanks for the reply.

I tried what you said, but I can't change the audio settings. Are there any way to choose the Little Endianness?
Anotther question: This DVCPRO is YUV and 4:2:2 and Interlaced, right?

Frandu created a new topic ' Still image workflow in FCPX' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hello all,

I would like to know what's the best workflow to import FCPX images, when they are larger than Full HD. Do you go thru Photoshop and then to FCPX? Are there any way to optimise stills automatically?

When dealing with tiny deadlines and several images, specially PNGs, I find hard time to do it, was thinking if someone have a better workflow.

Thank you very much.

Frandu created a new topic ' Professional Documentary - Audio Advice' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hello all,

I'm just finishing my very first indie doc in FCPX. Very low on budget and now I'm planning to do some audio treatment on it. There's lots of VHS tapes, some room tones that need to be made, mastering, etc.

So, how actually do you do? Do you guys simply do it inside FCPX or go to Protools or Logic Pro X?
If you go outside, are there any intensive online course to try to learn a little bit of it? Remembering that since it's an indie film, there won't be any specific gadgets to play with. Just one guy and one headset and lots of good intentions!

Thank you.

Frandu created a new topic ' FCPX US Market Share' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hello all,

Today I came across with a Facebook topic regarding NLE. An editor post a photo about a full feature doc being edited in the USA and I noticed that it's being edited in FCP7. This editor is located in the US. I gently asked why he wasn't using FCPX and he told me that FCPX was the iMovie (not for PRO market) and that he could do A LOT more with the 7 than with the X. I know this kind of comment is generally from people that didn't ever touch FCPX or was disappointed when FCPX was released.

So far, so good, I know people have their own opinion, but what intrigued me was that he told me that in the US market, no one is using FCPX. That or the editors are still on 7 or migrated to Adobe Premiere. That probably 1~2% of the market were FCPX users. I was kinda shocked, since I am in the brazilian market and although here a lot of people went to Premiere, I still give hope to FCPX when I migrated 1 year ago. I just can't live without the metadata, Keyword collections and magnetic timeline.

So I think about asking you guys. What's the feeling about FCPX in your city/country? How well is FCPX doing?
Thank you.

Frandu created a new topic ' Hard drive enclosure to use with FCPX' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hello all,

I have several external hard drives from IOMEGA, called Ultramax Plus (www.amazon.com/Iomega-34440-eSATA-FireWi...traMax/dp/B001NOJO4U) and I was thinking about switching to another hard drive enclosure to benefit it with the thunderbolt 2 connection.

I am editing a full feature documentary and with my iMac 2011 (i5 3.1, 32GB RAM, 1TB HDD inside and AMD
HD 6970M) I sometimes notice that the FCPX 10.1.1 lags a little bit, specially due to FW800 connection. I own a Lacie eSata hub and did noticed some improvements in speed with eSata connection, but not that much.

So I thought in buying the PROMISE Pegasus2 R4 Diskless 4Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID System (store.apple.com/us/product/HE150VC/A/pro...erbolt-2-raid-system). It's Thunderbolt 2, but still I can use in my iMac thunderbolt 1 connection.

My question is: Will I be able to switch all hard drives inside the IOMEGAs and put inside the Pegasus2? Is it something that can be made? Will I benefit myself with the thunderbolt connection, even with some older hard drives 7200 rpm?

Any advices would be welcome.

Best,
I
