So, FCPX.guru, I'm sorry that I hurt your feelings... but it's strange that in your opinion it's ok if the app could change metadata for one clip and couldn't for more than one without any reasonable reason...
I don't mean "proxy" in terms of FCPX proxy - it's just proxy for us. Studio generates ProRes from Canon CRM and I loaded those ProRes in FCPX as original clips, so FCPX doesn't know that it's proxy at all. Later I relinked all to another ProRes (with right aspect ratio & resolution). Also, I've checked if there are enough metadata to relink to original CRM.
So, no, I don't insert this clips in FCPX internal folder, so FCPX sees them as original, not proxy.
Sorry if I confused you.
Yep, thousands : )
We have 2 to 3 cameras in every scene, 104 scenes in total - from 2 to 10 shots in each - from 5 to 25 takes in each = thousands : )
Our studio rendered proxy clips out of FCPX (in Davinci) with wrong frame size (1920x1080) and letterboxed. Later they re-rendered them at 2048x1080 with original aspect ratio. I relinked the library to new proxies but I've done all the MCs already at 1920, so need to change the format to 2K and resolution to 2048. And for now it took me 2 days for a half work - instead of 6 clicks!
More of that, as I see, when the cut will be locked, if we would like (but we wouldn't) to finish it in FCPX and export at 4K, and I'll relink library to original 4K Canon C200 CRMs, I need to change all MCs settings in the timeline once again... Whaaat : )))) Or I could just break apart MCs in timeline... No, wait!.. We can't break apart MCs in FCPX : ))
That's why we force to finish it in Davicni - because it can flatten 2k MCs into original 4k clips.
What a simple task indeed, it's just metadata, cmon, Apple : )
PS: don't get me wrong, I like FCPX more that other NLEs, but such unlogical unfounded luck of the options just kills me
Yep, thanks, I did that already. Just wanted to draw attention to the problem of more users : ) The only one my feedback will not affect Apple, I suppose : )
I do it as an edit assistant for a feature film. I can't say to the director "just change it as you needed" : ))
Anyway, it's a nonsense that FCPX disables a group modifying option.
I hope they give an attention to my feedback.
I hope Apple guys read this forum from time to time (is it naive?)
In FCPX 10.4 if we want to change multicam properties we need to select a multicam clip and knock the "Modify" button in the inspector - it brings us a resolution, framerate and codec options to choose.
[File Attachment: MulticamModify.jpg]
But when we need to modify several clips at once... It can't be done! If selecting more than one multicam the "Modify" button disappears
I need to change the wrong resolution/frame size for thousands of multicams - how it could be that so easy operation Apple forcing me to do manually selecting and modifying clips one by one. It's just 6 clicks for a thousand of multicam clips vs 6000+ clicks... Do we need Randy Ubillos back for that?

wow... now it's 5 years from your message and FCPX still doesn't have a masking option on keying! how it could be : ))
That's awesome! Any chance to get a demo?
i'm agree about treasures : )
I have some french friends, but i'm mix of russian-armenian : ) And avatar is only represent my obsession about cameras.
Sorry, but 2 of 3 titles in "Pages" pack doesn't work for me:
Pages-Left and Pages-Right shows offline in title browser and in timeline, but Page-High is all right.
Don't know why, the folders in movies/motion template/titles/pages/Pages-Left & Pages-Right contains all that files, which you've zipped.
I can check them later in Motion, not today.
Anyway, You are rock, cv21 : )
I read this forum from time to time, but have never need to registered here because i no need to write something.. And i've registered just now only to express my gratitude to You for this awesome minimalistic titles!!! I was searching something like that for two days but none of them (for the $) was't so insanely clear and simple! It's worth the $ but you give them for free! You're rock! (sorry for my English)
