It was late February 2015 when some might say Final Cut Pro X had its big confirmation, a coming out party if you will when Apple published its biggest In Action article for FCPX as of yet:editorial of the new Will Smith movie Focus.

It’s day 29 of the #28daysofquicktips and that’s one day over. This big list of tips came from Editor, Trainer & Workflow Consultant Jesús Pérez-Miranda and it’s too good of a list not to publish. While Jesús seems to be very pro FCPX these days he’s an editor of many NLEs so he has provided tips for Avid Media Composer as well as FCPX. It’s a great way to round out the #28daysofquicktips on a Sunday. A few of his tweets are embedded as well. Coming all the way from Madrid, Spai...

I recently published an article about the breakthrough pro XAVC Long GOP códec/format from Sony, which is the third group of XAVC born in 2012. In the first article, I covered the status of third party software that support professional XAVC Long GOP. Since then, more compatibility reports are coming out of the woodwork. Ahead is a compatibility update, and even a video from a Canadian reader.

In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you how easy it is to create a background bed for your text, right in your Media Composer timeline. Using Timewarp, BCC Colorize (which comes with your MC subscription plan), the built in MC Blur effect, and a simple title, you can add some style, and save yourself all the time it takes to export your footage to a program like After Effects.
