    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

      Blackmagic Cinema Camera post workflows

      November 12, 2012, 5:07 am
      Digital camera development has been running in high gear for several years outpacing any other portion of our industry. Thanks to a revolution started by RED, Nikon and Canon, videographers are now blessed with a wide range of small, affordable, high-performance imaging systems that have broken us free from the confines of the mundane 2/3"...

      Grading through digital bipacks

      November 2, 2012, 10:21 pm
      When you hear someone use the term bipack, you think they are making the word up or just BS'ing you. In fact, bipack refers to an old technique used to create in-camera film effects. Film timers also used the technique to create certain color effects. In modern times, we are really referring to ways that...

      Sorenson Squeeze 8.5 and 8.5 Pro

      October 25, 2012, 3:14 pm
      For many editors, the preferred video encoding application is Sorenson Squeeze. It's one of the top encoders for both Mac and PC platforms and also comes bundled with Avid Media Composer in its third-party software package. Recently, Sorenson introduced the optional Pro version, which enables the encoding of Avid DNxHD MXF media, as well as...

      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...
