When Apple launched Final Cut Pro X, it was with a decidedly simplified set of video effects.

July was a good month for Apple power users, with the simultaneous release of Blackmagic Design’s eGPU and a refresh of Apple’s popular MacBook Pro line, including both 13″ and 15″ models.

For most editors, creating custom music scores tends to fall into the “above my pay grade” category. If you are a whizz with GarageBand or Logic Pro X, then you might dip into Apple’s loop resources.

(Part 1 of this series is linked here.) One of the surprises of NAB 2018 was the announcement of Apple ProRes RAW.

Two buzzwords have been the highlight of many tech shows within this past year – HDR and RAW.
