    Free Final Cut Pro plug-in: Alex4D Time Remap

    March 15, 2013, 12:38 pm
    Last year I made a set of generators that could be used on video clips to get more precise control over speed changes using an animation graph similar to that available in older versions of Final Cut Pro. Since the 10.0.6 update to Final Cut Pro, the generators I uploaded in March 2012 no longer...

      BBC News animation using Apple Motion and Final Cu

      January 19, 2017, 10:26 am
      I visited BBC New Broadcasting House in central London last week with Iain Anderson. As we were being shown around the BBC News headquarters, we happened across an animator working on a piece about Trump's inauguration day. He was editing it in Final Cut Pro X with plugins created in Apple Motion 5, both commercial and custom.  Iain and I gave him some tips in making plugins - including replicator sequence behaviours. He also showed us BBC-branded plugins he made for Final Cut Pro X title...

      Google intelligent image scaling could mean 4K qua

      January 19, 2017, 6:22 am
      PC magazine has written about a new Google technology that shows very good results in scaling up lower resolution stills to higher resolution: The new technique is called RAISR, which stands for "Rapid and Accurate Image Super-Resolution." [It] works by taking a low-resolution image and upsampling it, which basically means enhancing the detail using filtering. Anyone who's ever tried to do this manually knows that the end result looks a little blurred. RAISR avoids that thanks to mach...

      Logic Pro X 10.3: It’s new iCloud feature would

      January 18, 2017, 1:41 pm
      Logic Pro X 10.3 is out. Alongside Touch Bar and other UI improvements, there's an ProApp feature that should interest Final Cut Pro X users: Syncing with Garageband for iOS via iCloud. According to 9to5 Mac:  Tap a button in Logic Pro X and your whole project will now be sent to iCloud as a single reference track. That allows you to open up Garageband on your iPhone or iPad and continue working on the project in a way that doesn’t require you to upload heavyweight session files or bo...

      ‘Apple’s ProApps team should get their heads into the Cloud’ For post production, Apple might be able to infiltrate media organisations via everyone except the post-production team. At some point when writers, researchers, producers and directors ask why the work they’ve already done in Final Cut needs to be transferred to a ‘professional system like Avid (or Premiere)’ — post people won’t be able to come up with a good enough argument. ‘New video distribution mod...

      Avid no longer going after mid-market and individu

      October 15, 2016, 2:33 pm
      It looks like Avid Technology are changing their strategy. The old strategy was described in a May 2015 video (no need to enter your information just click 'Submit' to see the video): get larger proportions of what they call Tier 2 and Tier 3 markets -The $3.1bn business and institutions market and the $1.8bn individual creatives market. Now they are talking about capturing more of the workflow in Tier 1. CEO Louis Hernandez Jr. appeared on CNBC's Mad Money show with Jim Cramer: ...

      Apple WWDC 2016 Announcements and Post Production

      June 14, 2016, 12:14 pm
      Every year at their Worldwide Developer Conference Apple presents some of their plans relevant to software and hardware developers at a keynote presentation. Here are my notes and links from the 2016 keynote. The main screen and the webcast stream didn’t have the normal 16:9 ratio. It was wider at the Cinemascope ratio of 1:2.40. Could this be a hint that a future Apple-branded display will have a 21:9 (1:2.33) aspect ratio? New Name As iOS will reach version 10 this Autumn and OS X h...

      FCPX Creative Summit 2016 Provisional Schedule - M

      June 8, 2016, 10:35 am
      The provisional schedule for October’s FCPX Creative Summit is now available. Interesting: Instead of last year’s 90 minute presentation given twice to two groups, the schedule shows a 60 minute ‘General Address’ followed by a choice between 90 minute breakout sessions: 2:00 – 3:00pm General Address: The Future (Apple Campus) 3:00 – 4:30pm Apple Session Breakouts (Apple Campus) What could Apple be talking about in these sessions which would mean attendees would have to ch...

      This week Blackmagic Design announced a new version of Fusion, their high-end compositing application. The good news for Avid Media Composer users is that Fusion version 8.1 works with with Fusion Connect 8.1: This software adds the Fusion Connect for Avid plug-in that is compatible with Avid edit systems, so you can send any clip or stack of clips from an Avid Media Composer timeline directly into Fusion or Fusion Studio. Now Avid editors can have access to Fusion’s powerful 3D compo...
