There's bound to be a lot of expectation when you go on stage with a presentation entitled "10 things you might not know about Final Cut Pro X." Victor Maldonado gets a grilling, but that's not why we are posting the video.
Wow, an amazing resource on color correcting within Final Cut Pro X. We have to thank T Payton for posting this first on on our forum, the find is so good though that it had to make the front page!
At the recent meeting of the LAFCPUG (CPUG?) Micheal Wohl gave a twenty minute presentation on the advanced audio features in FCPX. Lots of good tips in there and maybe some features you've yet to discover.
Slightly off topic for a friday, but these three videos on Lonnie Ramati talking about film financing had us glued to the computer for the duration. Worth a watch to find out the what the 'Three levels of scum in the film industry" are.
It started with a tweet from @editorslounge and by the end of the day had grown into the biggest piece of Final Cut Pro news since Larry Jordan dropped his jaw.
Walter Biscardi put the inaugural meeting of the Atlanta Cutters together in three weeks from scratch. He lined up demos of the top NLE's and more for the packed house.
Larry might have been top billing, but there were some great demos on stage before his. In this post we have two presentations about software that complements Final Cut Pro X: DaVinci Resolve 10 and Autodesk Smoke.
There has been a huge buzz on the Internet since it was announced that BlackMagic Design's DaVinci Resolve 8.1 would take FCPX projects. Patrick Woodard gives us half an hour of how he grades using the application.
Nice to see somebody showing off what Final Cut Pro X CAN do instead of slamming it all the time. In these four videos from the recent LAFCPUG meeting, Steve Kanter runs through the positives.
The three wise men of Final Cut Pro X answer questions at the recent LAFCPUG meeting. Filmed a few days after FCPX's release, they tackle some of the big questions about our new editing software.
The first thing we did this morning in the FCP.co office after switching the kettle on was to sit down and watch this video. Real life examples of FCPX in action are always welcome.
Now that the interoperability between Final Cut Pro X and Blackmagic's DaVinci Resolve has been announced, we are sure many editors are going to be looking at this combination to grade their projects. Patrick Inhofer takes us on a 2 hour Resolve catch up course.
We feature a lot of Michael Horton's videos from the LACPUG on here. So we think it is well worth a post helping them to fund their new projector. Everyone will benefit.
Want to know more about the effects within FCPX? Or maybe you want to know how important metadata is within Final Cut Pro X? These set of videos will get you up to speed.
An early Christmas present. Michael Horton from the LACPUG has found the tapes from a 2006 interview with the film editor Dede Allen. Two hours of industry insight behind the editing of some big Hollywood films.
We post many articles about equipment and tutorials, so it's nice to sit back and watch a long video that concentrates on the actual art of editing. Norman Hollyn and Larry Jordan dive deep into the craft.
He was top billing at the SuperMeet in Amsterdam during IBC 2013. After putting his foot in it (or both feet) even before FCPX was released, he asks the question again, "Is Final Cut Pro X ready for professional use?" Nearly an hour long video, so grab a coffee and enjoy.
40 minutes of update news from FCPX guru Larry Jordan when he presented at the recent meeting of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group.
Possibly a rhetorical question, but it is good to see Final Cut Pro X taking the stage again at the SuperMeet. Don't forget we still have an offer of five Euros off the admission price.
We are very proud to launch our FCP Community page and Forum today. We have included some amazing functionality for users - profiles, groups, events and forum postings to mention a few, everybody is welcome.
We love great demos from people who know their stuff and these three presentations from the recent LACPUG are exactly that. Expect some gasps from the audience!

Mark Spencer presents Motion for FCPX editors at the recent Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group meeting. He illustrates with examples the fact that you don't need to know Motion to benefit from its image processing tools in FCPX.
Whatever you are doing, stop, get yourself a coffee and spend the next 30 minutes watching Michael talk about large format workflow. Packed full of information, this recent LAFCPUG presentation is not to be missed.
Michael was there right at the start of Final Cut development at Macromedia before Apple bought the program, so he's got a pretty good background in NLE design and how things work. Some excellent advice from him in these three videos from the recent LAFCPUG meeting.
Michael Wohl needs no introduction to us FCPers, but Dan Bérubé gave him an excellent one anyway. 30 minutes of Final Cut Pro X recorded at the recent Amsterdam SuperMeet.
At the recent Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group, Mike Matzdorff presented his experiences of being an assistant editor on a major Hollywood film post produced on Final Cut Pro X.
In the latest video, Rick tackles dealing with a multitude of codecs and outputting to any format you want; selectively exporting from the Final Cut Pro Timeline; effective media management; how to clone a hard drive and protect yourself again disaster.
We held this back for a slow news day, which just happens to be today! Rick Young takes a look at organising and editing your footage within FCPX.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a demo by an app's creator is a whole novel. Philip Hodgetts talks about getting Final Cut Pro 7 projects into FCPX using 7toX.
Grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit down and watch Philip Hodgetts present half an hour of how logging can be made easier by using his Lumberjack program. Lots to learn.
Demoed at the recent Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group is Lumberjack. It's a real time logging application that inputs the data into FCPX and Final Cut Pro X. No Monty Python gags either.
It got moved to a new time to help us on this side of the pond, but still some people managed to miss it! Good job Pixel Corps has published the whole two hours online.
This time Rick covers scratch disks, isolating a colour and that old problem of losing your image because you've gone into wireframe mode. yeup we've all been confused by that one once.
Rick Young from MacVideo has put together all of his tips and tricks into one book called "Rick's Tips, Inside the Mind of an Editor." It is available in print or electronically for your iPad/iPhone/iPod.
It's been a while since we featured a presentation from the LACPUG here on FCP.co. This is a good one, Sam Mestman from Lumaforge takes the audience through a 4K RED workflow on Final Cut Pro X.
Over half an hour of information and tips on Final Cut Pro X from Steve Martin of Ripple Training. The first presentation we've seen stopped by a heckler too.
Not our quotation, but the words of Philip Hodgetts who happened to be in the audience at the recent Boston Creative Pro User Group meeting. Take a look at the video of the presentation and judge for yourself! We have a coupon code for money off the Amsterdam Supermeet admission as well.
Just as we were packing up for the day, we got permission to embed the FCPX demo reel from the recent FCPWORKS event that was held in Los Angeles over the weekend.
Well according to FCP Towers, my article on the subject above had some good hits/tweets so I thought it might be interesting to write an update after digesting the FCP Sneek Peek.
If you are attending IBC this year then make sure you stay for the 4th annual SuperMeet on Sunday the 11th of September. The full guest lineup has been published too.

Two great interviews by Rick Young of MacVideo filmed at the recent SuperMeet in Las Vegas. Steve Martin and Ned Soltz talk about the new Final Cut Pro, FCPX.
We had many emails from people in Scotland asking us when the posted meeting of the UKFCUG was going to happen in Glasgow. Just to jog everybody's memories, Rick Young has sent us the agenda of the meeting on the 22nd of this month.
Some people say Larry is an FCP God. At the recent London SuperMeet last week he had a full 'house' of followers ready and eager to hear his wisdom. Watch the four part video after the break.
By kind permission of the the guys who run the SuperMeets, we present the entire presentation lineup from the recent Boston event. DaVinci Resolve, Canon EOS, Autodesk Smoke, Avid Media Composer 6 and the editor of Black Swan are all on the billing.
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.
If you're anywhere near Boston this coming Thursday the 27th of October, then this is a must. The SuperMeet sets down camp in Massachusetts for the night with a pretty impressive presenter line up. What will Walter Murch think of Final Cut Pro X?
Everybody eagerly awaited the SuperMeet on the 12th of April in Las Vegas as the new Final Cut Pro was due to be unveiled to the audience. A lot has happened since: two months on, the show moves to London. Will FCPX make an appearance?
