UPDATED with availability and rough price positioning
A great spot by @Fleak - Viz has announced an MXF playback plugin for Final Cut Pro X. Lots of different files supported.
At first glance we think it just might be. Chunky transport buttons, an optically encoded jog wheel and two banks of assignably keys. We like.
The biggest FCPX story for us of the show so far is the slightly unexpected but very welcome news that EVS will support growing files by the end of the year.
Cast your mind back a year or two ago and it seemed as if everybody & their dogs were releasing light flares. Tangent has gone one step further and released a pack of flares on steroids! Did we mention we have a coupon code too?
When Adidas wanted to promote their new football shirt for Mexico in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, their ad agency turned to Garage Films & Lucas Otero. He turned to FCPX and in the process did a screen capture of himself editing the commercial.
We always watch closely when Denver Riddle from Color Grading Central launches a new product. He's just released a set of film grades as LUTs called ImpulZ. We also have a 20% off discount code for FCP.co readers.
When we say free, there are a couple of caveats, but Look Converter is still a great way to get custom colour grades into Final Cut Pro X.
The fastest way to get news these days is from Twitter. But who are the best people to follow when it comes to Final Cut Pro X?
If there was an award for constant product development, it would go to Tim and Vincent at Arctic Whiteness. They have just released version 2 of their popular application for handling those FCPX libraries.
There's some new functionality between the recent 10.0.7 update to Apple's Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X. Most interesting is the assignment of tracks from Roles.
Hot on the heels of the Lumberjack System, Shot Notes X is an application that takes the data from a script supervisor on set and makes it available in the edit. Sam Mestman explains for FCP.co "no dailies, no carts, no labs, and no transcoding!"
Want to log on set on an iOS device or in a browser and then have all the keywords imported into Final Cut Pro X ready to edit? The Lumberjack System is a clever and quick way of first logging and then getting all that data into FCPX.
