Dean Sherwood created a new topic ' Tangent Elements' in the forum. 2 years ago

Hi all, just ordered two panels (I already have a ripple for colour), does anyone know if Sam's shortcuts have been updated for 10.4? If not I'm sure I can map it myself anyway, just wondered if anyone is using them?

Just tried something. Disconnected my 5K LG Monitor and now it's working... So there's some kind of issue (yet again) with this Apple LG monitor!

I'm having major issues with FCPX. Yesterday it started crashing every time I opened it up. Today is the same. I finally got it working yesterday after Chris Fenwick talked me through a UNIX startup, as soon as I close FCPX and try top open it again the problem is back. Have completely reset my MacBook, I now have zero plugins in the app... If anyone has any idea what I can try to resolve this id be really grateful. Thanks.

Dean Sherwood created a new topic ' Better touch tool...' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi! I’m wondering if using better touch tool and the touchbar on the new MacBook you could make a short cut that...

- select all audio
1. Adds (for example) 2 frames to each end of the selected audio files.
2. Adds ( for example) a 2 frame fade to each end of all the clips.

Thanks for any help, this part of editing audio always takes ages!

Thanks Tom, I will but if that's the case, which I'm pretty sure now you say it it is then you're right, it won't work. 1-0 to Premiere, which you don't hear often.

Hello, was thinking I should try the in camera proxy workflow on my C300 Mark II. Has anyone tried it. Would it just be a case of editing and then relinking to the hi-res media? Essentially the camera can shoot hi-res codecs to the CFast cards and proxy files to the SD card. I know I can transcode in X from the originals but this could essentially be quicker, plus it means I can choose the size of the proxies. Thanks.

Curious to hear if anyone has tried this combination yet. I've started playing this morning. I know these have keyboard shortcuts... and I already know the shortcuts, I'm just trying things out. If you do use it what are you finding it useful for and if you don't, what would you use it for? I'm probably going to add some of the shortcuts I don't already know.

Almost...
Select clips -> CTRL D -> + or - then frame number needed followed by your own audio fade toggle shortcut.

Dean Sherwood created a new topic ' Extend edits question' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi All, is there a way (and if so is there a shortcut) to extend edit a selection of clips (in this case audio) on either side by 'X' amount of frames. My thought process is if I can extend all of these with a shortcut and then use a toggle audio fades shortcut I have it will speed dragging them out a few frames up so damn much! Thanks.

General Editing question but I cut in FCPX so I think it's relevant. The transitions early on in this video, is that custom use of the Transform composite or a plugin? Thanks for any help!

Personally I would make the library represent the tour, and then en event for each tour stop (city, venue, etc)

Then in each event I would create smart collections and keyword collections and begin keywording each band member by name, and keywords like 'on stage' 'backstage', etc.

I wouldn't have a separate event for graphics or for sound, rather I would just have smart collections to pull 'images' 'audio' and copy those collections to each new event.

The main reason I would do it this way is to keep the media from each date together.....as that would seem to be the most important organization standpoint.....to not mix up footage from one city with footage from another.

But there's no wrong way, that's for sure.

The smart collections idea makes sense. I didn't realise you could copy smart collections! Thank you.

I would make an Event for each Location, title them "Location - [venue name]". Simply because the two digit numbers in front of everything is looking very confusing to me at first glance. If I don't immediately know what's what with a quick glance, it's not working for me. Personal rule of thumb. I'd keep everything specific to that venue performance in that Event. It's no big deal to add clips to a Project from another Event. FCPX won't duplicate files on your drive.

Like this, much simpler, thanks!

I've experienced really long beachball times after switching to Proxy mode in a Library with Multicam clips, but eventually and a few minutes it comes out of the beachball and works. What happens if you close that Library, and first create an empty Library with no media in it, then switch to Proxy mode, then open your Multicam Library? I think the Proxy view is an app-wide toggle that's non-specific to Libraries, so theoretically this should let you open the Library immediately in Proxy mode without needing to wait for the file paths to switch over from Original to Proxy.

Both worked. If I waited around 20 minutes the beach ball went. If I had a blank library and changed between optimised and proxy then back to the library I was working on, that also worked. Thanks for your help.
