    Exporting Quicktimes from Final Cut Pro with Alpha

    October 18, 2010, 9:48 am
    One function that is available in Final Cut Pro but not well documented, is the ability to export footage/timelines with an alpha channel (ie with transparency). Countless times we've seen editors on Twitter or Creative Cow asking "What could I possibly be doing wrong...the background is just a solid black when it should be transparent?"

      a tribute to Golden Era special fx: URBAN LANDSCAP

      December 5, 2016, 6:17 am
      Greetings matte painting enthusiasts, it's time once again to take another of NZPete's magical mystery tours into the world of the traditional, hand painted matte shot. Today we will conclude our two part retrospective look at the matte artist's urban landscape, with a great many wonderful examples of the artform, numerous of which haven't been illustrated anywhere until now. I've got some amazing material for you here and I hope you'll find the following both illuminating and informative.

      Art Gensler – Chaos Group Labs

      December 5, 2016, 6:04 am
      Art Gensler’s name will be familiar to architects and designers, but if you haven’t heard of him, here’s a rundown. In 1965, Art founded M. Arthur Gensler Jr. & Associates, which is now the world’s biggest architecture firm in terms of revenue. It creates everything from wine bottle labels to the biggest buildings in the world. Chances are you’ve set foot in a Gensler-designed space at some point in your life, be it a Gap store or the Shanghai Tower.

      How far is too far when it comes to self-promotion

      December 5, 2016, 6:04 am
      When it comes to securing work and progressing a career, getting your name out there is one of the first challenges most designers will encounter. Competition is fierce, so if you want to stand out from the crowd and impress a studio or creative director you're going to have to do something truly impressive. There are some pitfalls you need to avoid, however, but thankfully the experts are here to guide you through.

      Joe Vallero - Working in LA

      December 5, 2016, 6:04 am
      Let me back it up a bit. Joe Vallero is an editor who made the move to LA and has the IMDB page to show it. In our interview with him here we ask him about how making the transition to LA and finding work went for him, any tips he would have for other editors looking to wedge their foot in the proverbial door of big productions and what myths about working in LA hold water and which ones are just fluff.

      Movie Trailers in FCPX (feat. Charlie Austin)

      December 3, 2016, 3:05 pm
      Charlie has been at this business for about as long as I have and brings to any discussion about editorial decades of of experience and insight. This discussion went in a few directions and at one point I share a deeply personal story so please forgive me for monopolizing the conversation. We discuss the history of various FCPX updates and briefly go into some of the new features in 10.3.1
