MotionVFX.com is one of my favorite companies in the FCPX community. Szymon and his team of artists and developers create beautiful plug-ins and templates for FCPX and Motion as well as After Effects. In this episode of The Grill, Szymon will go into depth on their upcoming mO2 product, which is a Real Time 3D rendering engine inside the FCPX eco-system.

With just a couple days before NAB 2018, Apple has pre announced the newest point release of FCPX. What is interesting is that this is not just bug fixes but also new features. ProRes Raw and Closed Captioning. Not the sexiest of features but upon deeper examination, both will, more than likely, prove to be very valuable to us as editors. On this episode of The Grill we speak with our recurring guest, Alex Gollner and he gives us some early insight on these new features. We also speculate on what the 2019 Mac Pro could be.

Lumberjack Builder is text based video editing, or more simply put, its a pretty amazing. Philip Hodgetts and Gregory Clarke have always been ahead of the curve when it came to metadata and video control and Lumberjack and Lumberjack Builder are great examples of this. I’d recommend if you can to take a look at this web site as you listen to this episode. There really is a lot of visual missed in this particular audio podcast.
