    Organizational Tips for FCP X

    March 8, 2013, 5:44 am
    The beauty of Apple Final Cut Pro X is in its power to organize media. When editors take advantage of these tools, FCP X can prove to be a very fast way to cut. I've covered some of these concepts in previous posts on

      FCP X grading styles and tools

      August 29, 2013, 6:17 pm
      One of the aspects I enjoy about Final Cut Pro X is the wealth of tools and methods for color correction, grading or whatever you want to call the process. There simply is no other NLE on the market with as many built-in and third-party tools for making adjustments to image color and style. I’m […]

      The NLE that wouldn't die II

      August 24, 2013, 5:23 pm
      With echoes of Monty Python in the background, two years on, Final Cut Pro 7 and Final Cut Studio are still widely in use. As I noted in my post from last November, I still see facilities with firmly entrenched and mature FCP "legacy" workflows that haven't moved to another NLE yet. Some were ready to move to Adobe until...

      Anatomy of editing a two camera scene

      August 17, 2013, 12:49 am
      With the increase in shooting ratios and shortened production schedules, many directors turn to shooting their project with two cameras for the entire time. Since REDs and Canon HDSLRs are bountiful and reasonably priced to buy or rent, even a low budget indie film can take advantage of this. Let me say from the beginning...

      The structure of Apple's Final Cut Pro X has brought many new and innovative plug-ins to market that extent the power of the application. One such plug-in is SliceX from CoreMelt. Developer Roger Bolton is a visual effects compositor who has been making FCP, Motion and After Effects plug-ins that fill the needs he sees...

      Pixelmator

      July 20, 2013, 1:34 pm
      Over the years, Adobe Photoshop has become the go-to photo and design application for many editors, yet others simply never warmed to it. Naturally there is an interest in alternative solutions and one of those is Pixelmator. The company was an early adopter of selling through the Mac App Store and that move quickly vaulted...

      Director Zal Batmanglij's The East caught the buzz at Sundance and SXSW. It was produced by Scott Free Productions with Fox Searchlight Pictures. Not bad for the young director's sophomore outing.

      AE for the Finish

      Many editors view Adobe After Effects as a great motion graphics tool or a reasonably powerful compositor. It's a great "Swiss Army knife" for all things in post.
