The last few World Wide Developers Conferences have been a bit 'meh'. Not so for today's 2017 conference from San Jose. A new macOS, Kaby Lake updates to the MacBook lineup, talk of an FCPX update and of course the announcement of the awesome new iMac Pro.
Ever wondered what it takes to make a weekly web series? Steve Martin at the Faster Together Stage at NAB 2017 takes us through the recording and post production of MacBreak Studio. (On FCPX of course.)
Andrew McKay very kindly got in touch to tell us about a vey handy free application from Studio Network Solutions. It converts a 'Managed Library" with media stored inside the bundle into a Library with all the media stored externally. A page to bookmark!
The 'Master of Metadata" Philip Hodgetts presented FindrCat and FindrCat Pro at the recent Faster Together event at NAB 2017. See how the applications can take metadata out of FCPX and into the finder.
The release of Final Cut Pro X back in July 21st 2011 certainly polarised the post production industry. Now a feature length documentary from Brad Olsen tells the story of how the world's favourite NLE changed overnight and how the industry did or didn't accept the new version.
Cast your mind back to April 2016. We published a short article about Sven Pape and how he planned to edit a feature film on FCPX live on the internet for everybody to watch. Well, the film is finished and Sven and his colleague Dustin Hughes presented about the feature "Flesh and Blood" on the Faster Together stage at NAB 2017.
Michael Kammes is no stranger on FCP.co- We have even featured how he recorded his proposal in 3D and wedding in the first person POV on video! He also produces a web series called '5 Things" and here we present his live version from the LumaForge Faster Together stage at NAB 2017.
NAB 2017 was a blast! This year, LumaForge had the opportunity to host both the Faster, Together Stage at the Courtyard Marriott and our Workflow Suite on the 59th floor of the Encore hotel. We also participated in the FCPX Guru Gathering, the Colorist Mixer, the SuperMeet and even threw a party at the Encore.
While we wait for the rest of the FCP X Tour videos from NAB to get posted, here’s a last but certainly not least video from the FCP X Tour Barcelona. We couldn’t publish it sooner because some of the projects mentioned were still under NDA at the time of the recording. We hope you will enjoy the video presentation, but first some background information:
In the first of our publications of the video presentations from the LumaForge Faster Together Stage, Michael Cioni talks about his and our relationships with Apple's products. A great 40 minutes of truth and observations. Grab a coffee, this is well worth watching and will get a lot of views.
