On the day of the 2015 Oscar presentation ceremony, wouldn't it be good to watch an interview with all the nominees for the Best Film Editing award? The American Cinema Editors (ACE) and Moviola have very kindly published this hour and a half discussion recorded on Saturday featuring those editors in a Q&A session.
Standby for three minutes of incredible video. Rob Whitworth takes hyperlapses to a new level (quite literally) in this not to be missed Vimeo video.
Three bits of news from Sam Mestman over at FCPWORKS. We have a podcast with a rather familiar guest, a video tutorial on getting daily rushes out of FCPX and details about NAB 2015.
One of the best features in FCPX is multi camera editing. It takes seconds to sync up footage and start cutting, but there are things that you can do to before and during editing to make the task easier. Here's ten top tips!
The Mac Pro and the 10.1 update to Final Cut Pro X are now over a year old. So using the same jobs as benchmarks, how far have we come with the combination?
A video from Thomas Grove Carter raised some interesting thoughts on the possibility of useful features from iMovie being transferred to Final Cut Pro X.
This short film shows the construction of the Leadenhall Building in London. 2 years and 8 terabytes of 5K & 7K timelapses/hyperlapses all edited (in the end) on Final Cut Pro X then published at 4K resolution. A stunning FCPX user story.
We are very pleased to publish the story of how the wonderful short film 'Watchtower of Turkey' was made. Nominated as Best Video of 2014 on Vimeo, Final Cut Pro X provided all the tools for Leonardo Dalessandri to produce a spectacular and inspirational piece of work.
As promised, we return with the second part of our look back at the Final Cut Pro X user stories of 2014. It all got very interesting, very tekkie and very, very creative.
We take a look back at the Final Cut Pro X user stories we posted during 2014 on FCP.co. The year started early with 10.1 and the new Mac Pro, high profile jobs and announcements over the Summer and finished off with some very creative examples of FCPX in action at the end. Enjoy a jolly good read, we did!
Mark Spencer is a busy guy. Not only does he produce tutorials, appear on MacBreak Studio and write plugins for FCPX, he also edits! In this article he tells us how on a recent job he used a multicam workflow and Final Cut Pro X to get a conference post produced in minimum time.
What happens when you put Final Cut Pro X in the hands of a respected Director/Editor who has grown up with flat bed editors, in-camera effects and classic animation techniques, who has worked with Lightworks, Avid, classic FCP, Shake and Flame and who says (quote) he is “too lazy” to read manuals and to always learn the newest software?
A production in Australia used Final Cut Pro X to edit films for multiple screens in a live performance. Video, music, dancers and over 60 live cues in the show - how was it done?
