Everybody hates boring tutorials, sometimes the best way to teach is to keep everything concise and to the point. Bill Davis' refreshed XinTwo tutorial website is nearly up to its 100th 'micro' FCPX video lesson.
The debate is over, it looks like we won't get a feature packed update for the pro apps this side of NAB. All the pro video apps have had an update today along with a few new features included for FCPX, Motion and Compressor.
Gabriele Weßling has published a Final Cut Pro X graphic 'how to' manual for German readers. Priced at €17 for the PDF, it is suitable for beginners and experienced editors.

What has been the most popular book on learning how to edit with Final Cut Pro X? A 'graphically enhanced manual' from Edgar Rothermich helped many people understand the simplicity and complexity of FCPX. Now a new version for FCPX 10.3 has been released.
It is over 1200 days since Apple launched the 'Can't innovate anymore my ass' Mac Pro. Over the last 24 hours, there has been widespread reporting of Apple's decision to end the life of the cylinder and reinvent the Mac Pro. The bad news is the new model won't be available this year.
It is the end of March and that means one thing, everybody is gearing up for NAB. Sam Mestman from Lumaforge takes us through some very interesting events for FCPX editors at the show in Las Vegas.
Today, March 24th is the theatrical release of Bokeh, an independent feature about a young couple on holiday in Iceland who wake up one morning to find that everybody else has disappeared. The co-writer/director and editor Geoffrey Orthwein takes us through the post production of the movie on Final Cut Pro X.
If there is one side of editing that's really hot at the moment, it is making videos for social media. Apple has recognised this trend and announced a free app for iOS that will make posting those fun videos a lot easier. It's got some cool features too. Very cool.
Not just being able to operate another NLE, but be good at it, able to sit next to a paying client working under time pressure. Is theres a lot of common ground? On the 25th anniversary of Adobe's Premiere launch, are NLE’s all becoming the same or are they getting more specialised?
So how difficult is it to try and get full collaborative workflow in FCPX? A bit of experimentation later, and we are a lot closer, we have updating Events & Projects.
We welcome Einar Johnson from Pixel Bokeh Productions who very kindly let us publish his story on how his company edited a highlight reel during the course of a corporate conference. Of course, FCPX was one of the stars!
