  • FCPX For Legacy Final Cut Users

    FCPX For Legacy Final Cut Users

    April 18, 2012, 11:13 am
    Final Cut Pro X has caused a lot of buzz in the post-production world since its preview during the 2011 National Association of Broadcasters. Some editors decided to dive in on day one. Other editors hated the sight of it and referred to it as iMovie Pro. And then there were the editors who made...

      Transition Preferences in FCPX

      October 25, 2011, 10:18 am
      When applying transitions in Final Cut Pro X, have you noticed the duration of your timeline shrinking? By default, FCPX applies a "full overlap" between the two selected clips for transitions. This results in the clips shortening in length. This can be a problem, especially if you have perfectly matched your video with a song...

      Background Rendering in FCPX

      October 24, 2011, 10:04 am
      One new featured welcomed by the editing community that Final Cut Pro X has is background rendering. No longer do you need to wait for Final Cut to render clips, instead it all happens in the background. In this Final Cut BasiX tutorial, I am going to go over basic information about rendering in the...

      Project X: Convert FCPX Projects to FCP7

      October 20, 2011, 3:10 pm
      When Apple released Final Cut Pro X, one thing that was clear was that FCPX could not open legacy Final Cut projects. This is a major disappointment for almost all editors who have projects they need access to. However, thanks to Intelligent Assistance’s latest product – Project X? – that has sort of been solved. ... Continue Reading

      Find and Replace Title Text in FCPX

      October 14, 2011, 11:34 am
      Final Cut Pro X has a great feature I wish legacy Final Cut had, the ability to globally find and replace title text in your Timeline. Say you're editing a video with a talking head who’s name is Conner. You feature him several times and include his name in lower thirds, graphics, credits, and more...

      It is very important to be organized while editing. If you’re like me, you organize all your media in bins in Final Cut Pro 7's Browser similar to how you structure your folders in Finder. So, when you add an image in the stills folder in Finder, you import it in legacy FCP and drag...
