Well according to FCP Towers, my article on the subject above had some good hits/tweets so I thought it might be interesting to write an update after digesting the FCP Sneek Peek.
If you've ever searched Google for an answer to a problem with Final Cut Pro, then chances are you'll have visited the Apple discussion boards. Check your bookmarks as the best FCP forum on the web has had a makeover.
Take a look at the video above. The new FCPX in action? Wrong, it's an iMovie timeline worked up by Scott Simmonds. Looks slightly familiar doesn't it?
Is it possible to give an award to a product that hasn't been released yet? Of course as Videomaker have given the NAB 2011 award to Apple's Final Cut Pro X.
Some kinetic typography gives clear advice on how your scratch disk works in Final Cut Pro. Short but to the point and rather cool too. Video after the break.
Walter knows his stuff, he grades using Color on a regular basis and has produced a top selling Color instructional DVD. He managed to squeeze some demo time at NAB to take a look at Baselight and the FCP plugin.
It is NSFW, but this video is jammed packed with excellent advice. How to ask for a decent daily rate, what should be in a contract, how to get paid etc.
With all the anticipation and news surrounding the announcement of FCPX, some of the other news got a little overshadowed. At NAB G-Technology announced that later this year they will launch drives with Thunderbolt ports.
