✎ Latest Free FCPX Effects

Mojave and late 2013 Mac Pro. Seem to remember using firewire with DV Cam. through a converter cable. Mainly using a black magic ultra studio component out from Beta SP. Final cut captures from firewire too.

Resolve captures well.

Peter Metcalf replied to the topic 'Color Finale 2 Pro Crashing FCPX -Any tips?' in the forum. 3 months ago

I was getting a lot of crashes with CF 2 and some very strange thing happening randomly with masking. I do like the app but haven't the time to work out the bugs so switched grading to resolve. many less mouse clicks and very few crashes. Would still like to use CF for jobs but not a good idea for tight turn around work right now for me.

Hi. I've upgraded to colour finale 2 and everything seems to be working. Took a little while to find my way around the new UI. Two things are a bit annoying. The colour wheels only update when you release them, whereas the sliders update immediately.
The tracker is a bit fussy. Doesn't always track.
I've only had one crash, but have had the zoom tool jam on a few times making it impossible to make any adjustments.
I upgraded fromPro to Pro version 2 with the discount, although when I first tried it said I wasn't entitled to a discount. I used the support button telling me to try again and it worked. I prefer working with Colour Finale than the inbuilt system, but find both do a good job. Still find Resolve slicker though, much easier to manipulate the controls.
wish CF used the mouse wheel.

I also work for a network that only accepts interlaced, but we shoot 25p and deliver from a 25i project. no problem.

I found bootcamp didn't work any better than Mac OS. Started to think my headset was faulty so took it to computer store and tried it on a gaming PC. worked fine. Still able to use headset with FCP though.

Yes, scared me too. What I ended up doing was a line up to bars and spot checks. It seemed to expand out with no degradation but I would have loved Apple to be able to have explained it. I never did get a file to them.

Thanks, that's very helpful. I hope to try the setup this weekend. I'll drop you a line for the offer of the older version if it's still broke.

Hello Rajarajan. I had to make a DPX sequence for a hour film festival. The film was 3 hours long but everything went very smoothly. But the output files were strange, grey in comparison to the original files. They looked like LOG. I called Apple and they said send them some files and provided a link. Unfortunately the link wasn't allowed to accept my files. I had a deadline so we ended up resetting the levels in Resolve prior to outputting the DCP. does that sound like the same issue?

I'm having the same problem. Clients external portable drive has the file I want to import, So I set FCP to copy to library. Nothing happens.
I will allow me to transcode the file.

Peter Metcalf replied to the topic 'Loosing Render Files' in the forum. 2 years ago

missing renders not serious but no longer being able to render flow effects is serious. I had to re output a series for tv of short stories in which I used the flow effect a lot in interviews where I didn't weant to cut away. It worked very well in the original output, althout each effect threw the synce out by the length of the effect, but latter outputs refuse to render and loof terrible.
Anyone else?

My renders are always disappearing too. But doesn't seem to matter too much not related to new version in my case

Just wondering, if this problem is related to any particular file type?
Could it be something to do with this legacy media thing?

tI've not had that problem yet. I'm on 10.4.1 running Hi Seira
