Edit a feature film in 8K on Final Cut Pro X? Who would attempt such a thing? Patrick Southern for one and he has kindly documented his ingest, dailies and proxy making workflow.

Backups and archiving are hardly the sexiest subjects in the world as we have said before. However if you have ever lost data then you will know how important it is to have a proper backup plan in place. Patrick Southern shares his thoughts and strategies for making sure nothing gets lost.

Some people say it does, some swear it doesn't matter, but now we have a definitive answer. Also we post the one click tweak that can really speed up FCPX.

It's the beginning of May, a solid date with no timezones or seasons to get wrong around the world this time! Also a good excuse for a roundup of the latest FCPX tutorials.

The developers of KeyFlow Pro 2 have released seven new tutorials on how their MAM works. Of special interest to us is the integration with Final Cut Pro X and of course the Workflow Extension.

Time to sift through the recent FCPX tutorials to bring you the ones of interest. A job that's getting harder by the day as there seems to be more and more tutorials being uploaded  for Final Cut Pro every day. We list the good ones!

The first day of Spring, but time to cast your mind back to January. The LACPUG had a special night where Apple and Frame.io presented the new features of 10.4.4 to the audience. The video of the presentation has just gone live!

We have covered different sized proxy generation here before on FCP.co, but not with this level of control and ease. Alex Snelling shows us how easy it is to make very small file sized proxies using Keyflow Pro - and have them link back up to the original media with a click!

When we saw John Matthews' comments on social media about using an Apple Trackpad and Final Cut Pro X, we had to know more. He's very kindly put together his findings on the Trackpad in words and a couple of great video demos.

What did you think you were going to do today? If like us, you start watching this excellent end to end Final Cut Pro X film editing masterclass, you'll find yourself still at your computer an hour and a half later. This detailed, fast paced demo is essential viewing.

How would you like a free 14 part set of tutorials demoing Frame.io? You are in luck, the guys at Ripple Training have just published a comprehensive set of videos on exactly that.
