    100 FCPX Questions Answered

    July 18, 2011, 9:05 am
    Recently I hosted a Final Cut Pro X Hands On Tour webinar for FilmmakingWebinars.com. It was a great event with 90 minutes of FCPX for over 800 people attending. (An archive of that can be purchased btw).

      Collaboration and Why The Auteur Theory Is Bull

      August 11, 2010, 1:06 pm
      Directors, listen to me hear — it’s impossible to make a film by yourself. Not every idea you’re going to have is good, and not all good ideas are going to come from you. The best comments I’ve gotten from directors are when they turn to me after viewing my Editor’s Cut and say "Wow, there were some things in there that I never would have thought of myself. Thanks." Of course, that doesn’t mean that we’re going to use those ideas...

      Review - Loader for Final Cut Pro

      August 11, 2010, 1:33 am
      Final Cut Pro’s greatest strength is also its greatest weakness, and that is its open-endedness. What I mean by that is that Media Composer has a very "rigid" way of working, and importing media means that you take a clip, and upon import, MC converts it to an MXF (or possibly an OMF) file, and once it’s in your system, the external file that it came from is essentially useless.

      Controversial Edit

      August 10, 2010, 8:38 pm
      During the next 12 months, the edit unfolded in a way I had never experienced. A 90-minute documentary in the United Kingdom would normally involve a straight run of nine to 11 weeks of cutting. However, the schedule for this film was dictated by the Zimbabwe government and its ability to continually postpone the international court case—the film's subject matter—was staggering. Shooting was interrupted, and this meant we had to approach the edit in a very different way. We had to be fluid...

      To Transcode or NOT to Transcode

      August 10, 2010, 4:11 pm
      With the release of Premiere Pro CS5 earlier this year, the topic of native editing, and more specifically, native DSLR editing has been a big one...worldwide. From literally every country I’ve visited, people are discovering the power of DSLR video and leveraging it to it’s fullest. But the questions I’m continually asked are, "Why does Final Cut Pro/Avid Media Composer force you to transcode? Why don’t you transcode in Premiere?"

      AVID'S NEW ISIS

      August 10, 2010, 1:11 pm
      As this issue was going to press, Avid announced that it is expanding its ISIS shared storage product family with the introduction of the ISIS 5000. The company introduced the flagship Unity ISIS back in November of 2005, and James Frantzreb, Avid’s senior marketing segment manager for broadcast and storage, says the ISIS file system has since "been proven in the most demanding and high-profile media production environments in the world."

      Great Expectations

      August 9, 2010, 10:20 pm
      Media Composer 5 has been out for a while now... And since my initial impressions of it I’ve been thinking more about what it signals for the future of Avid in general and Media Composer specifically – about what I expect to see in the coming versions.
