Give the new FCPX a test drive for free. For your free 30 day trial visit: Apple – Final Cut Pro X – Trial.
Special thanks to Larry Jordan for the news.
This is probably the quickest update I have seen in a software yet. 🙂
Here is a great video I found on FCP.co on the the “Joy of using FCPX”. What I like about this video is that we can really see the direction Final Cut is heading. With all the hoopla and debate on Final Cut, it is nice to see someone that is thinking ahead of the curve instead of overanalyzing the change Apple chose to do.
One thing I keep telling anyone that is willing to listen, is that every Non Linear Video Editor can pretty much do the same thing in similar ways, so it is nice to see a software that is rethinking the way we work. I like to think that one day we will edit like in the movie Minority Report, which the new FCPX seems to be heading in that direction:
I found a gret forum full of Free FCPX Plugins and Templates at FCP.com
While you are there make sure to check out their home page as it is always full of great information.
Have an awesome day!
Great video showing where Final Cut has been, where it is and where it is going.
A great conversation with Alex Lindsay, Steve Martin and Mark Spencer on the new FCPX
Note: One thing that was brought up by Allan Tépper in regards to conforming 59.94p to 23.976p for slow-mo shots:
Conform a clip’s speed to match the project’s speed:
If you’ve applied speed effects using your camera, the native speed of the source media may not match the native speed of the source media for the rest of the clips in your project in the Timeline. However, you can change the clip with the differing native speed to match the rest of the clips in the Timeline.
In the Timeline, select the clip whose speed you want to change to match the rest of the clips in your project.
Choose Conform Speed from the Retime pop-up menu in the toolbar.
Have a wonderful day! 🙂
