Staying within FCPX, you can only 'gather up and copy media' which isn't ideal. At the recent Faster Together stage at NAB, Chris Steele from Marquis Broadcast demonstrated Worx4 X that copies and trims media saving a lot of disk space.
Subtitles, love them or hate them, they are an essential part of constructing a programme for domestic or international distribution. Jan Willem den Bok has written a plugin that speeds up the process of building subtitles in a show on an FCPX timeline.
Again, like 2016, most of the interesting news for Final Cut Pro users actually happened outside of the NAB show. Coremelt announced two new products that are in beta. Scribeomatic for automatic transcription of dialogue and Chromatic, a colour grading plugin with built-in tracking.
A new app from Marquis Broadcast allows users to media manage FCPX Projects to just the media used on a Project timeline. We take the WORX4 X beta for a quick spin. (Spoiler- We already think it's great)
Up until now, there wasn't really a way to combine marked ranges, favourites, ratings and roles from different FCPX users together. MergeX, a new $49 application now allows you to do exactly that. Without duplicate clips!
Need a reason to watch the Oscars on February 26th 2017? The Spanish film Timecode directed by Juanjo Gimenez and edited on FCPX by Silvia Cervantes has a good chance to win out of the five entries on the Live Action Short shortlist.
Apple has announced a discounted bundle of Pro Apps for educational users. Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4, and MainStage 3 are available for just $199.99 for educational use.
A round of updates to the Pro Apps for January. All three video applications get bug fixes and one very important change of behaviour in Final Cut Pro X 10.3.2.
Kyno's first major update will be released today, 1st of December. Version 1.1 includes improvements to the Final Cut Pro X integration, tagging UI, output directory selection for transcoding and other exports, general productivity improvements for output, and a host of helpful bug fixes. FCPX TOUR video included!
Phil and Greg from Intelligent Assistance are two of the brightest guys out when it comes to adding functionality to FCPX, especially in the XML department! So when they sent us information about their new $19.99 app called FindrCat, we were excited to take a look.
Another week and another Final Cut Pro X event! This time FCPX World moves to Berlin and Karsten Schlüter had the opportunity to attend and report for FCP.co.
