I don't want to comment on stuff using my Facebook profile!
I have an account with fcp.co that is separate from Facebook for a reason.

Jared Schwyhart created a new topic ' Edit Profile Not Working' in the forum. 3 years ago

Using Chrome, Firefox, and Safari...I cannot edit anything under my profile. The links don't even open and everything default to my friends list.
Somehow my profile connected to my Facebook and I don't want that, but I can't change it because FCP.co is broken.

Jared Schwyhart created a new topic ' Star Trek: Discovery' in the forum. 3 years ago

I can't confirm, but it looks like the studio that is creating the VFX for the show uses FCPX as their main video editor. They also use Avid and DaVinci Resolve.
I got this from looking on their website: http://www.spinvfx.com/careers/vfx-editor-2/

That boundary line has to be a bug. There are steps you can take to sorta get rid of it, but it's annoying.
Anytime I try masking and keying (On one clip or stacked) I get that boundary of the mask.
Do you have Motion? Doing this kind of thing can be done easier inside of Motion. It stinks that there's not a 'Send to Motion' option yet, so you'll have to do it manually. **Unless you buy X Send to Motion. I haven't bought it myself because I think it's silly that that feature requires a plugin.

Apparently Casablanca's are still being made: http://www.dalco.co.uk/meteor.html

Yes, I agree. I might bring in my laptop and have them shoot using their iPhones. I have access to 4K professional cameras, but they're not mine to loan. Literally anything would be better than the equipment they have.

Sorry for the delayed response.

No, it's not for a school. It's the Tulsa Living Arts Museum. I'm pretty sure this equipment was donated to them and they only use it for this event that happens once a year. Non-profit's finances are feast or famine and there's nothing in-between. Either they have more money than they know what to do with, or they're barely making it.

There are 6 topics that the students will learn over two weeks. The final project will have them incorporate each discipline into one art display. The topics include: video, music, sculpture, painting, etc.
I think TLAM is more concerned about teaching concepts during this 'camp,'but of course, if they had the money they would upgrade their equipment.

I do wish they had at least an old mac with FCP7 on it.

Jared Schwyhart created a new topic ' Casablanca' in the forum. 3 years ago

So, I might have a two week job teaching high school students videography. The catch is their editing system is a Casablanca and they're using ooooollllldddd camera's.
The man showing me the equipment said "This was the standard ten years ago." I'm thinking more like 25 years ago.
Anyway, does anyone have experience with this artifact?

I'm going to do it either way...it's an easy $1,000.

Jared Schwyhart replied to the topic 'Music Libraries' in the forum. 3 years ago

Mainly corporate...

It'd be best if I could just buy bundle of CDs. I know that's old school, but so is where I work.
It was a pain when with FCPX was only on the App Store. Took my company months to finally buy it. Thankfully, FCPX has had free updates this whole time, so we don't have to deal with purchasing.

Anyone know of a good music library for purchase?
I checked BH and theirs seem to be out of date. I'm the way now is by purchasing individual tracks on Envato or similar. This however isn't the best for where I work. The purchasing department is super picky and I'm 99% sure they would not approve purchases from Envato or any other non-major online store.

Jared Schwyhart replied to the topic 'Flow transition error' in the forum. 3 years ago

I can see how you might say that about FCPX.guru, but mine is piratically the same shot with minimal difference.
I could have used a simple cross dissolve and most people may not have noticed.

The way I ended up "fixing" it was by restarting FCPX. That tends to clean up 80% of the errors I encounter.

I edited the link.
I hate it that YouTube changes the UI so much. I copied the link to the video manager because now when you click one of your videos it goes straight to the video manager instead of the video as the public sees it.

Jared Schwyhart created a new topic ' Flow transition error' in the forum. 3 years ago

Made a video that needed to be looped for a while. I used the Flow transition and while some of the transitions worked, some didn't.
First, I slowed the clip down to 10% of it's original speed. Then added the transitions.

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=e1s0cFR0yvw

I got it to eventually fixed it, but not 100%. In the timeline the video looked good, but after export these transitions were a little jumpy. The final version was good enough though.

Jared Schwyhart created a new topic ' Motion 5 used for ArchViz' in the forum. 3 years ago

I just had a random thought and wanted to share. We have plugins such as mObject (and others), so I'd think it's possible....Could one set up whole archviz scenes with Motion? Maybe this is something MotionVFX should look into.

Then again, maybe not since a lot of archviz is using Unity because it's real time and offers VR capabilities.

Thoughts?

I ended up scraping the first idea, which dealt with the pen tool.

Jared Schwyhart created a new topic ' Accepted formats for import' in the forum. 3 years ago

I can' t find any information on what formats M5 can import.
Right now, I'm mainly dealing with image/vector formats. I tried importing an SVG and M5 won't allow it. Some files convert to PDFs inside of Motion, which rasterizes it.
I'll continue testing to see, but it'd be nice if this was listed out somewhere.

Say you started a bezier curve and for whatever reason you deactivated the pen tool. All you want to do is continue editing the bezier curve you were working on. As far as I can tell, the only option is to restart from the beginning.

Tell me I'm wrong.

Jared Schwyhart created a new topic ' Continue editing bezier with pen tool' in the forum. 4 years ago

How do I do this? Whenever I zoom into the footage to mask I have to use the hand tool to move the viewer around screen. Whenever I do so, the pen tool deactivates and when I try continuing the line it creates a new one. So, how do I continue a line?

Sorry, this is meant for Motion. I will add it there.
