  • Organizational Tips for FCP X

    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

      Hemingway and Gellhorn

      September 22, 2012, 3:50 pm
      Director Philip Kaufman has a talent for telling a good story against the backdrop of history. The Right Stuff (covering the start of the United States' race into space) and The Unbearable Lightness of Being (the 1968 Soviet invasion of Prague) made their marks, but now the latest, Hemingway and Gellhorn continues that streak...

      CalibratedQ AVC Intra Encode

      September 14, 2012, 4:48 pm
      Thanks to Apple's product development directions, the current status of all things related to the Final Cut ecosystem has professional editors a bit rattled. One by-product of this is concern over whether it is wise to master final files in one of the ProRes codecs. This concern leaves the door open to other codec options...

      Magic Bullet PhotoLooks 2

      September 8, 2012, 11:40 am
      Red Giant Software launched the preset-based "looks" market, when it originally released the browser version of Magic Bullet Looks. Visual effects director and software designer Stu Maschwitz overhauled the original product to create a self-contained color correction and "looks creation" interface, where tools were grouped according to how they fit into the flow from in-front...

      Demystifying Color Grading with FCP X

      August 10, 2012, 8:21 am
      It's time to dive in deeper and see how Final Cut Pro X can solve your color grading issues. A lot of FCP X fans like to say that Apple rolled Color into FCP X, but that's pretty far from the truth. Some features from Color have counterparts in X, but the two applications are...

      The race to the bottom

      August 2, 2012, 9:47 am
      Whenever a group of established professionals in the business gets together, they bemoan the "race to the bottom". That's the concept that simpler, more inexpensive tools result in the lowering of quality. The prevailing attitude is that now "anyone can do it" so no one "values the craft". Editors complain about what low-cost editing software...

      Getting started with Adobe SpeedGrade

      July 23, 2012, 8:14 pm
      The addition of SpeedGrade to Adobe's Creative Suite 6 line-up gives users yet another powerful tool for film-style color correction and grading. The Adobe SpeedGrade interface is minimalist with few menu commands, so it will help for new users to seek out some of the online tutorials before diving into their first project. I will...

      Plug-in developers have had their hands full. Not only are they rolling out refreshed versions of their products, but they are having to adapt to a range of new hosts, including Apple Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5 and updates of Avid Media Composer and the Adobe Creative Suite applications. Here's a look at some...

      Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

      June 25, 2012, 9:22 am
      Editors looking for an alternative to Apple Final Cut Pro view Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 as the logical choice, but there's more to this release than a hypothetical FCP 8. I've reviewed and used each version of the Creative Suite for many years and Premiere Pro is one of the few NLEs where each new...

      Into the fire with FCP X

      June 17, 2012, 6:37 am
      As most of you know in following this blog, I've challenged the wisdom of what Apple has done with Final Cut Pro X. You may have also sensed, however, that I have warmed a bit to the application over the months. I've been working with FCP X since its launch nearly a year ago, mostly...

      It starts at the camera

      June 10, 2012, 9:33 am
      Modern color correction and grading systems allow you to performance a lot of magic in post. All too often though, producers take the "fix it in post" mantra way too seriously. Since modern cameras offer excellent low light sensitivity, the basics of good lighting and proper art direction get short-changed. If the director, DP and...
