Using gestures to edit with Final Cut Pro X

For all Final Cut editors. Here is a cool video on how to edit using gestures. It feels as if we are getting closer to editing video like in Minority Report. Very cool and Extremely time saving.

Watch the video demonstrating gestures with Final Cut X at this link: Using gestures to edit with Final Cut Pro X.

I think this is direction we are heading for video editing:

Is Final Cut Pro X going to do to video what Gutenberg did with printing?

Here is a great article that I believe actually captures the vision Apple has for Final Cut X and beyond.

Excerpt from the article: “Suddenly the skills that had kept them in the roles that they had had for centuries started to change. They had to “retrain” and become proficient in the new technologies of their business.”

Here is the link to this great read: Is Final Cut Pro X going to do to video what Gutenberg did with printing?.

Thank you fcp.co for this great post!

Michael Wohl talks ‘The Joy of FCPX’ at the Amsterdam SuperMeet

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:

Alex Lindsay, Steve Martin and Mark Spencer Speak on Final Cut X

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! 🙂
