Not an FCPX story, but an accidental discovery via Twitter. With machine learning set to take a bigger role in editing, one Twitter account is already auto-colourising photos. Spoiler: They are doing video too.
4 weeks after Finnish/English editor Ben Mercer came to talk about his work on this major movie during FCPX World at IBC, the World War II drama Unknown Soldier (Tuntematon Sotilas) has broken the opening weekend record at the Finnish box office, competing with the biggest international film productions in the world.
The catchy Reggaeton pop song ‘Despacito’ by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and rapper Daddy Yankee was the inescapable Summer Hit of 2017. Just 6 months after it was released it became the most streamed song in history, with 4.6 billion plays across all streaming services. It reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 100 and stayed at that place for 16 weeks. The song topped the charts of 47 countries and reached the top 10 of ten others.
We love to test hardware and software here at FCP.co. So when a new backlit Astra Final Cut Pro X keyboard from Logickeyboard arrived, it didn't stay in the box for long.
Later on in the day (for those of us on the east of the puddle) we will see the availability of the latest macOS High Sierra. We all like upgrades, are there any things we should know first? (Slight hint-yes)
Will the Kaby Lake version of the new MacBook Pro impress the editor of the site enough to get the company credit card out? Will FCPX get a performance boost? You will have to read to find out!
We are very excited to announce that as per the previous years, the organisers of the 2017 Final Cut Pro X Creative Summit have very kindly helped us organise a free draw for an event pass. Checkout the video between Peter Wiggins and Jeff Greenberg where they detail the draw and talk much more about FCPX. Grab a coffee (or beer!)
We have mentioned Worx4 X on here before, but this example should give you an indication of why this app for Final Cut Pro X (now priced at $44.99) can pay for itself with a click
We will waste no time and post part two of Jonathon Williams' popular article on shooting and editing (on FCPX of course!) a daily blog during the Red Bull X-Alps race.
Would Final Cut Pro X be up to producing a daily Vlog following a participant on the Red Bull X-Alps adventure race? In the first of this two part article, Jonathon Williams tells us his story of how he, his camera kit and his NLE coped with such a grueling task.
The community behind FCPX is like no other NLE. An example of this is the help filmmaker Emmanuel Tenenbaum received when editing his short film 'Sans Plomb.' The film has just been awarded a Staff Pick on Vimeo to go along with its many film festival showings.
Two great videos from the recent LACPUG. Philip Hodgets demos FindrCat with Final Cut Pro X and Lawrence Jordan & Richard Sanchez preview their new assistant editor training course.
Need to get a lot of still images from moving media? One of the spinoffs from using a DAM is the ability to easily process such time consuming tasks. Georgia Dawson looks at how Kyno helps streamline that process. Kyno has had an update to 1.3 and is on sale too!
