So no news from Apple about Final Cut Pro at the iPad2 event. However Randy Ubillos who headed up the team that gave birth to Final Cut over 10 years ago, was on stage to talk about iMovie. Is there anything we can learn?
We feel pretty bad about this one as we missed it in the crazy build up to our website's launch. Tim Dashwood of Dashwood Cinema Solutions is not only announcing an upgrade to Stereo3D Toolbox, but he is also unveiling brand new products at NAB 2011 - One of them being Stereo3D Cat.
In this tip Apple Certified Master Trainer Simon Walker shows you how to improve up your workflow by compositing elements in a virtual 3D space with reflections and glow elements, without leaving the Final Cut timeline. He emailed us saying "Why don't you show some of my tutorials". So we are.
Jealous yes, very. Matthew Allard of Al Jazeera took delivery of a Sony F3 model number 00002 and immediately put it to work. How did it perform?
**Update 2/3/11 Firmware update & news of a 8K sensor Sony camera possibly to be shown at NAB**
As FCP gets more & more of a hold in the post-production industry, the requirement for 'interoperability' with other editing systems (OK Avid) is bound to grow. Marquis have launched a box that will help bridge the gap.
The 1st of March and we have now officially launched. Slightly ahead of schedule, but it seems like the right time due to the huge traffic we've already had because of last week's big Apple news about Thunderbolt and FCP8.
It's clearly going to be an exciting time.
With all the excitement about the new Final Cut Pro, nobody has mentioned the possible fate of its little brother, Final Cut Express. I think there will be two possible outcomes and you just might be surprised at one of them...
To say that the 5D is getting red carpet treatment in Hollywood might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it was being used at the Oscars build up. Not quite sure about using it for a piece to camera, but thanks to CampusMovieFest for tweeting this picture.
But the big story for the FCP community was The Social Network getting an Oscar for Best Editing. More after the break.
