What is Final Cut Pro X like running on a new Mac mini? We take a look at the new model, its features and how well FCPX performs. It even beats an iMac Pro in one of our tests!

The 2018 FCPX Creative Summit is nearly upon us, FMC has just announced the keynote speaker for the event. With over 5 million subscribers on YouTube and more on other social media channels, Justine Ezarik AKA iJustine will be starting the event off.

It is a good question and of course you can guess the NLE used in the trial. It's a short video, but worth watching for the comparisons and conclusion, especially as it is the base model.

When Mike Matzdorff hits a workflow roadblock, he goes looking for an alternative route. What he recently discovered was not only a new low cost transcription service, but a job at the company as well! 

Rusty Earl returns to FCP.co with another great Final Cut Pro X user story. This time, a story made with a shared workflow with student editors. How did it work and how did they get around project slow downs?

Instagram Stories are popular at the moment, so making eye-catching content is essential to stand out. In this tutorial Leno Porto takes us through building a template especially for Instagram.

Yes, this is a site about Final Cut Pro, but we love new things, especially when they are inspired by Final Cut Pro X itself. So let's fire up the new Adobe Rush and give it go.

Motion has had 3D capabilities for a while, but they haven't been updated since 2009 for the basics and 2015 with 3D text. Motion VFX's updated plugin m02 adds much more 3D functionality and of course creativity to the app. We spoke to MotionVFX who kindly gave us a quick tour of the app and its 3D capabilities.

The barriers in the way to making your own films have never been so low, however the inertia to start often stops a lot of budding filmmakers. This summer, a program in Chicago got 12 kids from diverse backgrounds to team up and make their own film. They used iPhones, Final Cut Pro X and of course some help & knowledge from Sam Mestman. 

When given the task of cutting a 34 angle multicam music show in Premiere Pro, Shahin Shokoui accepted the job but decided to move the project over to Final Cut Pro X. After a successful edit, he then converted the final cuts back. 

A few years ago, you needed an expensive OB van to cover a live event, even for editing and transmission later. This can now be accomplished on a table top and of course Final Cut Pro's speed helps make it the obvious choice of NLE to get inserts edited for playout. Florian Decker shares his FCPX/K2 workflow on the Globus Marathon in St. Wendel, Germany.

So just how efficient can Final Cut Pro X be in feature film post production? Find out from the story of the post production process of Gabriel, a new film from Portuguese Director Nuno Bernardo.

It's quite simple. Stop what you are doing, make a large coffee and watch these two videos. Never before has Randy Ubillos, the creator of the original Final Cut Pro and FCPX, gone into so much detail about the history of NLE software development. We publish the two part recording of Randy's chat with Michael Horton at the recent LACPUG 18th birthday anniversary meeting.
