Final Cut user group , links, local help and resources for editors
Enjoyed the Supermeet in London on Friday, even though it was unusually quiet as far as FCPX went. Mike Horton was heard to say near the end :It is the future of editing , believe it or not" Obviously I do or I wouldn't still be using it.
What was most notable was the demo of Resolve 10, from Blackmagic. They has a third party looking after their stall, and no camera for us to play with, as they were off at some bi trade fair. Resolve 10 is now almost a complete fully fledged NLE, and…Continue

Wot's new pussy cat ?
When you download it from the app store is seems to disappear, and you want to make a backup don't you ?
Here's what to do:
Make a .dmg copy after downloading by Rt clicking installer in dock > Show In Finder > Make Duplicate .
Or mount DMG and use disk utility to duplicate it, you'll see it in the Apps folder. Keep it on a USB or separate drive
It moves incompatible 3rd party stuff to a folder it creates for you. You can then…Continue

Fantastic, well organised day on Wednesday. I had great chats with the TV in the Wild Masterclass people. Good to be on emailing terms with Dale Templar, Olly Steeds and John Conroy. They are all interested in the OUT (Open University of Tanzania) project that I'm involved with, and had some great advice to help it move forward. Watch this space as they say.
Also got some really good training on the Canon XF 300, production workflows and a 2 hour session with Brigit Osborne of Hard…Continue

XDCAM Plugin news via Christina Jones
Everyone who is having a problem with ingesting from XDCAM memory card based and are having to use XDCAM Transfer / export your footage out then import it into FCPX, Sony has created a PLUG IN for this problem.
Now you can just use the import camera option and it will open up all your clips sort of like imovie. You can select your clips, create in and outs, and while importing you can still scrub through them. You can choose the "project" or create a new project for your clips to go into. It will directly go into FCPX wrapped as an mov. But it stays native.
This is only memory card based.
If you are using optical disc, you still need to go through XDCAM Browser. However, now they have added a feature where you use a shortcut and go straight into final cut after you have imported into XDCAM Browser, rather than having to export then re-import into final cut. A new feature, is that through XDCAM Browser since you are going right into final cut after, is you can store meta-data, water marks, etc. within your clips that you have added in XDCAM Browser and it will transfer over with your clips.
This is helpful when you have assistant editors / interns and you want your editor to find clips easier / faster.
All of the upgrades are free on the sony download site.
