Five years on from the launch of Color Finale for Final Cut Pro X, we have the announcement of the upcoming V2.1 update.
A few new pieces of hardware today. Apple has announced new iPad Pro models, an update to the MacBook Air and a tweak to the Mac Mini.
The Covid-19 pandemic has hit us all, hopefully just with work being cancelled. We have put together a list of resources that might help with remote editing & companies that are offering special services during this time.
The Banker is a film staring Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Nia Long, and Nicholas Hoult. In theatres now and available on AppleTV+ shortly, it was shot on film and edited in Final Cut Pro X. Oliver Peters talks to the producer and editor, Joel Viertel.
Adam Schoales has a regular job every year of putting together a short 'highlights' film of the last night of the Toronto International Film Festival. This year, he thought he would do a screen capture of the 10 hour Final Cut Pro X edit process - and then speed it up to 10 minutes!
If you've spent any time in Final Cut Pro X discussion forums, then you've probably run across posts by Tangier Clarke, a film editor based in Los Angeles. Clarke was an early convert to FCPX and recently handled the post-production finishing for the film, Jezebel. I was intrigued by the fact that Jezebel was picked up by Netflix, a streaming platform that has been driving many modern technical standards. This was a good springboard to chat with Clarke and see how FCPX fared as the editing tool of choice.
As Final Cut Pro X lets beginners cut high quality media from the moment they open the app, do they look at the software learning process any differently to established editors? Steve Bayes visits the recent Vlog University and Smartphone Studio Workshop to find out more. He also gives us some great FCPX editing tips.
The real growth in production today is not at Hollywood studios or the creation of new broadcast channels, it's online. Digital studio Kin publishes hundreds of videos yearly. With over 5M followers and 15 million monthly views, Final Cut Pro X is the NLE that's allowed them to achieve such a prolific output.
