macbreak fcpx relink

We are all still learning the best way to achieve an operation in FCPX as there are many different ways things can be done. In this week's episode of MacBreak Studio, we start off with an update with a better solution to a problem.

Nobody knows everything, so it is good to see the guys at MacBreak Studio giving us an update from a previous episode. 

Should you relink or replace files? It depends on your media, but in this new episode of MacBreak Studio, Mark Spencer shows Steve Martin a few different ways to replace media on the timeline.

We are a big fan of the paste attributes box as Is Steve, as you can see from the video. We have many times sworn at FCP7 during the process of having to manually toggle the compositing mode on every clip in a timeline. Watching this episode raises the question that a 'Replace and keep Attributes' option would be even simpler and a great addition to the operationally of FCPX. One for the feature request list for Apple maybe!

As always, great tips from the guys again this week. If you would like to know more, their latest FCPX tutorial. Final Cut Pro 10.1 In-Depth is $29.99 and available from the Ripple Training website.
