Totally understand your point, however I am freelance and al that happens is I am given the screen captures and asked to get on with it.

I did look back at an old Library from about 6 years ago to find I had used the cropping way for a video before. Weird how the mind forgets a few things. My old boss called it skill fade. Guess he was right about some things.

So a little about the job. I am currently working on a instructional video VO and screen capture. Now I am doing it in PP don't switch off or click back. I know I can do this faster in FCP for the next one and my client has said I can choose.

To the issue, so I have the screen capture in glorious 4k on a 1080 timeline so I can zoom in and out to the areas of interest . PP no issues set keyframes all linear we zoom in and out to the areas of interest brilliant. FCP not so brilliant, I have zoomed in and out to the areas of interest to a few bits if interest without issue then boom without warning we are panning off into oblivion or so it feels. I have sussed out the linear keyframe as I want to push in view and zoom back out.

So my question is when the heck am I doing wrong? What I should do is learn motion and make a plugin to zoom to the area of interest then zoom out.

I cant screen grab as I am under a NDA if I get chance later I will try and make a short video with stock video.

Tom Wrote, "Try marking favorites for sections and attaching notes to the favorites section in list view."
That works well and I can search the text too, I changed the name from Favorite to the text from the script. I knew this group would have the answer to my question.

Thank you all

Firstly thank you for your replies.

The voiceover was recorded before time as one single file from the script and the demo was recorded later. I wanted the ability to search via written terms, hence my thought of using compound clips. Take all of your points on board. I want to prove a point to my intermediate client that FCP is faster. We are making changes now in PP and OMG it's killing me not having the magnetic timeline.

Hi

I have not done too many videos with voice over before. I have a single file to work from and I need to split it up as per the script. Now I have done the first one in Premiere and I used subclips and named them using the script. Am I correct to assume that the way forward with FCP would be to use compound clips?

Rob Mills created a new topic ' Send email app.' in the forum. 2 years ago

A few years ago I had a application that was built in automator that would send me either an IOS message or an email when an export from FCPX of Compressor was complete. Does anyone know of anything that can do this currently?

Well that was a mistake!

Updated FXFactory and now can't use it because and I quote

"You Can't use the version of the application "FXFactory" with this version of OS X"
"You have OS X 10.10.5. The application requires OS X 10.11 or later."

Guess I should have checked. Yep I am a dumbass........
