Is it possible to give an award to a product that hasn't been released yet? Of course as Videomaker have given the NAB 2011 award to Apple's Final Cut Pro X.
Some kinetic typography gives clear advice on how your scratch disk works in Final Cut Pro. Short but to the point and rather cool too. Video after the break.
Walter knows his stuff, he grades using Color on a regular basis and has produced a top selling Color instructional DVD. He managed to squeeze some demo time at NAB to take a look at Baselight and the FCP plugin.
It is NSFW, but this video is jammed packed with excellent advice. How to ask for a decent daily rate, what should be in a contract, how to get paid etc.
With all the anticipation and news surrounding the announcement of FCPX, some of the other news got a little overshadowed. At NAB G-Technology announced that later this year they will launch drives with Thunderbolt ports.
Two reasons for posting this video. The first is the fact that PluralEyes is a pretty amazing piece of software for synching clips and audio together. The second, well take a look after the break.
Those FCPX Presentations filmed from iPhones, iPads, Canons, Nikons, and Panasonics are starting to spring up across the net, like Pink Floyd bootlegs. Some have been filmed from bags, other like Emmanuel Pampuri's managed to get both presentation party and screen in shot, and with a somewhat frenzied sting on the front! Well done Manu for posting so soon. Part 2 after the break.
FCPX - It was the news we've been waiting a few years for but it was worth it. Awesome, jaw dropping call it what you want FCPX (10) takes editing to a new level. All the new features after the break.
It will be the last because from tonight when the 'new' FCP is demoed at the SuperMeet, FCP7 will named the 'old' Final Cut Pro. Tonight will be a watershed...
