Tony Davies puts into words what a lot of us editors and producers have been thinking for a while. Final Cut Pro is a great tool, but its ease of use has caused a lot of problems within the industry too.
It's a forum question that keeps coming up again and again:- "How can I make my video look like film?" Hopefully this post might provide part of the answer. CineGrain have released a huge (and I mean huge) library of quicktime movie film effects on disk.
We thought this was interesting as it parallels Final Cut Pro's transition from the 32 bit Carbon API into the 64 bit world of Cocoa. Now why can't the Apple team make a video like this?
If you haven't got your hands on one yet, then take a look at this iPad demo video from Apple. Could some of the features shown here in iMovie find their way into the new Final Cut Pro?
