Sick of skimming in Final Cut Pro X? Could Apple be planning on including a three dimensional CoverFlow in iMovie first and therefore FCPX? Who knows, but they got awarded the patent.
This week Apple won a patent that specifically details various collaborative media production processes. There's a lot of detail in the document too - could this be a hint of what is to come for Final Cut Pro X?
It's not an FCPX tutorial, but it's not far off. Nice to see somebody who knows iMovie talk well about its relationship to FCPX.
It's been a bit quiet here on FCP.co for a few reasons. One of them is a bit of a reorganisation, more on that in another article. The other reason is that we have been spending a lot of time on our iPad Pro and we rather like it.
The trailers in iMovie are a quick way to make highly polished short promos. But what if you want to use and modify them in Final Cut Pro?
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...
We have often looked at the animated globe maps in iMovie and wished they could have been included in FCPX. Thanks to a clever trick, you can have access to the maps and globes directly in Final Cut Pro X without having to re-render each one out as a movie.
With the big debate about Final Cut Pro X still alight, it was refreshing to get a new and unbiased view. Chris Gatewood, a young filmmaker has been using FCPX to post produce his latest film.
Rahma Ali shows us how she edits her videos in iMovie for her YouTube channel.
If you haven't got your hands on one yet, then take a look at this iPad demo video from Apple. Could some of the features shown here in iMovie find their way into the new Final Cut Pro?
Yesterday we showed you the video of the first three of six editors talking about how they think FCPX will affect editing, training and the whole FCP ecosystem. Today it is the turn of the last three and a group discussion to round things off.
iMovie is a good place to start a life as an editor, but it’s got several limitations. If you’ve done a few projects and you’re looking for more freedom in how to place clips, how to finesse your edits, or simply need a wider selection of titles, Final Cut Pro is an obvious next step.
At the moment this is designed to process the very bad amateur handycam footage online. The before and after processing videos are worth a watch though.
***Updated with embedded event video***
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?
Iain Anderson takes another look at iMovie - Is it a gateway app, Final Cut Pro lite, or more?
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?
This week's MacBreak Studio follows a project from shooting and editing with iOS iMovie on an iPhone 6 right through iMovie OS X to finishing in Final Cut Pro X. Pretty impressive stuff.
We've been the proud owner of a Retina MacBook Pro as soon as we could get our hands on one after they were announced in 2012. So how does the latest model from Apple compare? Has it changed much, is it quicker and is it worth changing to? We experiment.
New toys and new fun. We have been putting the new iPad Pro through its paces this week and we thought a quick post and a couple of videos about our first thoughts would be good. Yes we do mention 4K editing in iMovie and Duet!
It has to be a travel nightmare, we all love timelapses but not when the passenger next to you on a flight is shooting one! Nate Bolt did exactly that though on a flight from San Francisco to Paris. The video is after the break.
