Mike Martino created a new topic ' Export Video with Cropped Dimensions' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

So I have videos I make for my instagram. I have my FCPX project set to 1080 x 1920. However sometimes when using instagram, for reasons I wont dive into here, I need that same video. But I need the file to be 1080 x 1350. Not squished to that, just cropped.

Now to save hard drive space and the time of having to use software like adobe media encoder or compressor. I just export straight from FCPX "Apple Devices 1080p" (Format: Apple Devices. Video Codec: H.264 Better Quality. Resolution: 1080 x 1920). All was great that way!

But like I said, now I need to export in, ratio 4:50 aka 1080 x 1350...Is there anyway to achieve that direct from FCPX?

P.S. I already tried making a new project with those dimensions and copying and pasting all my clips...It does not work haha

FCPX 10.4.6
OSX 10.15.4

No worries. I also noticed when you keyframe the transform controls on the mask there is no option (that I can see) to change the movement from Ease in, Ease out, or linear. Which you can adjust when using the Transform controls for regular clip movement in the inspector...?

For the mask they have several control points. Is it possible to keyframe just ONE control point. I only seem to be able to keyframe all the control points together

Mike Martino created a new topic ' Disabled Box popping up around Title Text' in the forum. 12 months ago

I am trying to put mask on a title but the box outline that pops up around the text when you click anywhere near the text on the screen keeps getting in my way. If inside that box it will not allow me to add new points to my mask. Is there a way to deactivate that? or lock the text parameter?

Mike Martino created a new topic ' FCP reading my 59.94fps as 60' in the forum. 12 months ago

II have a project I brought into logic to work on the audio SFX and Score.
it is 59.94fps, So I set it to that in the Logic Project.

However. when I brought the audio into FCPX the audio started to get more out of sync as the project went on

So I exported the mov and sound together from Logic. at 59.94fps to import back into FCPX and literally go frame by frame to make sure the cuts were in sync. And they stay in sync for like the first couple and then become off by a frame or two as video progresses. I noticed when I import this mov into FCPX it is reading it as 60fps instead of 59.94. Even though the mov is def 59.94. I doubled checked it in Quicktime and on that it reads it properly at 59.94...What is happening?

Mike Martino replied to the topic 'Sync Final Cut with Logic Pro X' in the forum. 12 months ago

The XML workflow would not solve my issue. I would like to be able to move around clips and titles while also move around audio elements, adjusting tempo, etc.

When I import score/music into FCPX I can edit the video but limited in editing the score. When I import FCPX (Video) into Logic I can edit all the music but none of the video. I want to be able to edit either pending on which seems more viable to make the edit to. Does that make sense?

If we could get FCPX to output MIDI TC or some other way that would be great.

FCPX has time code. And Logic has Time Code as well.. I don't know why the two can't sync using the standard time code values...
00:00:00.0 ( Min : Sec : Frames . SubFrames )

*don't really need the subframes but logic uses them so whatever.

Mike Martino created a new topic ' Sync Final Cut with Logic Pro X' in the forum. 12 months ago

Is there a way to use Final Cut Pro as the Master time code and sync it to logic as the slave?

I have done it in the past syncing Pro Tools and Logic. But now it would improve my workflow a lot to integrate FCPX with LPX. I am scoring this 4 minute video. And as I am scoring sometimes I find I want to tweak the timing of titles or edits in FC. It would be so much easier to do that in real time if they were sync'd rather then going back editing the video, making a not of where to make the changes, reimporting a new vid file, etc...

This is what I am referring to with logic syncing

Mike Martino created a new topic ' copy.paste keyframes not working' in the forum. 1 year ago

I am using a draw mask in FCPX 10.4.6 on OSX 10.13.6
I am trying to copy and paste controls points on the mask.
But when I try to do the Edit > Keyframes > Copy ...and then... Edit > Keyframe > Paste

The keyframes show up, but they have none of the date in them. Nothing happens, the control points just stay where they are.

So the cursor being white and then turning red when you hit play (spacebar) is normal ?

Mike Martino created a new topic ' Organize audio' in the forum. 1 year ago

Mike Martino created a new topic ' Move clips start/end points together' in the forum. 1 year ago

Is there a way to select all keyframes that are in line vertically but from different clips and then drag/move them together?

Also is there a way to blade/drag multiple clips at once? Every time I have multiple clips/titles on top of each other I find it very inefficient that I can't shift click them and just click blade once or drag the start/end times of them all at once.

Anyone know what I mean and have a solution?

However it is straightforward to note the playhead timecode in the expanded CC clip then go to that place back in the timeline. It’s just an extra step.

This is the part I am losing you on LOL...Could you please show me or explain in a different way what you mean by this?

Mike Martino replied to the topic 'Sometimes Final Cut will not render clips' in the forum. 1 year ago

I did indeed have background render on, which is why I was confused. However, due to your suggestions and others I think I am going to turn background render off. I will report back with how that goes while working on my current project with render set to OFF.
