macbreak Managing motion files

Good to see Steve Martin and Mark Spencer back in their normal chromakey studio after being in their acoustically lined box for the last season of MacBreak Studio. This time they are looking at media managing Motion files.

There have been many tutorials that show editors how to move Final Cut Pro X projects between drives and users. But what if those projects contain custom or modified effects that wont be copied?

In this brand new episode of Macbreak Studio, the guys show us how to manage the effects so that the dreaded red screen won't appear, be warned though as one of the solutions ends up using the Termina! If you are using shared storage then this is an excellent way of making sure that all editors are referencing the same set of effects.

If you would like to know more, Ripple Training have a great $29.99 2 hour long Final Cut Pro X 10.0.6 In Depth tutorial that covers the new features which were added in the 10.0.6 update. 

If you want to start from scratch and prefer learning from hard copy, their two books on FCPX and Motion are still in print and available from Amazon.
