What happens when you put Final Cut Pro X in the hands of a respected Director/Editor who has grown up with flat bed editors, in-camera effects and classic animation techniques, who has worked with Lightworks, Avid, classic FCP, Shake and Flame and who says (quote) he is “too lazy” to read manuals and to always learn the newest software?

FCPX rhythms of life

Inspired, that's how we feel on a dull Thursday morning. Why? Well that's because we have discovered Mrs Williford's lessons & tutorials on FCPX at Hendrickson High School in Texas. Welcome to the future

This video from Terence Curran explaining the basics of colour correction got us thinking. How do you colour correct in FCPX?

In a word, cameras. Lots of them. A couple of other headlines, some interesting monitors and a copy of FCPX on the very 'Resolve & Eyeon heavy' stand. Keep reading as Resolve gets improved integration with Final Cut Pro X.

IBC day 1

The exhibition isn't even open yet and there are already headlines being written. New cameras, Blackmagic Design gets their cheque book out again, 4K everywhere and a very interesting piece of FCPX news that we are tracking down.
