  • What IS the Big Deal With FCP - A Response

    What IS the Big Deal With FCP - A Response

    November 1, 2010, 11:13 am
    Recently a blog post from Neil Sadwelkar titled "What’s the big deal about FCP" made the rounds of the post people on Twitter. It’s an evaluation of Final Cut Pro, mainly comparing it to Avid Media Composer. This is obviously nothing new, there are probably hundreds of such blog posts around the net, but this one was a little special simply because of it’s massive wrongness... Neil doesn’t seem to be approving comments on his blog post, so I thought I’d post my points in response here.

      What would you want in FCP8

      May 20, 2010, 4:45 pm
      After all this hype that has been circulating about FCP being dumbed down for only the prosumer and not the professional video editor, what will FCP have to offer you in order to stay as popular as it is? Whether people switch to Avid or even Premiere (watching another production company nearby use the CS5 AE to Premiere to AE features are pretty cool) is another question on its own...

      Sorry for the lack of updates in a while but work has kept myself and Nate very busy and away from the site. Updates and news for now is the site will be going through a new look and update shortly so be on the look out for that . On the RED front Epic/Tattoo program should be going into full swing shortly and we should see some footage coming out testers in the not to distant future.

      Editing on the Iphone

      May 20, 2010, 4:43 pm
      One might wonder why you would want to edit video on the iPhone, to which I say...why not! You could use editing tools to bartweiss1create a mix of home videos or mini personal documentaries right on the phone. I spent some time editing on my iPhone with 1st Video and the following are my impressions.

      Why FCP'S Sky isn't Falling

      May 19, 2010, 4:40 pm
      Today AppleInsider posted an article that claimed knowledge of a restructuring of Apple Pro Apps suite away from the needs of professionals and more in line with consumer-level users. Specifically "Apple’s Final Cut Studio suite of video post production apps is getting a significant makeover to better target the software to the mainstream of Apple’s customer base rather than high end professionals."

      Why Apple Insider Couldn't be MORE WRONG!

      May 19, 2010, 4:39 pm
      Today Apple Insider got the echo chamber of the Internet buzzing, with their post Apple scaling Final Cut Studio apps to fit prosumers by Prince McLean. It’s a great headline and I can’t blame Prince McLean and Apple Insider for running with it: it’s bound to get them a whole bunch of links.
