Published by:

I’ll be honest… I HATE the word “VLOG”, HATE it… that being said, there are some VLOGGERS that fascinate me. You’ve probably heard me mention Casey Neistat before and although I don’t suspect he’d ever want to be on THIS podcast,  I do HIGHLY respect what he is doing. Max Chesnut, a friend of mine I met this year at NAB is about to set out on a pretty epic 2 month adventure and Max is going to VLOG the entire trip, daily.  On this episode of The Grill we’re going to talk about the issues that Max is GOING to come across as he travels and creates video content, every day, in FCPX.

Managing Events in FCPX is an important task. When I met Matt at the FCPX Creative Summit I had no idea how this interview would go a month later. As you’ll see this completely organic conversation leads to an exploration of how Matt managed 90 Cooking shows with multiple assistants and one giant FCPX Library. Did he make the right media management decisions? Listen to this episode and find out.

Training a new user in FCPX can be a challenge. Certified Trainer Ilyas Akhmedov and I chat about some of the hurdles and pitfalls that come up when helping someone wrap their head around FCPX. Ilyas also drops a few ideas on me about he can essentially assemble his whole show in his browser and of course, we get into for a while about some features we’d like to see in Final Cut Pro X.

FCG125 – Find Your Success (feat. Geoffrey Orthwein)

Published by:

“Everything looks familiar but nothing makes sense”, that’s what a lot of people say about FCPX when they first take a look at it. Geoffery Orthwein has been using FCPX from day one. He had the added support of actually working for Alex Lindsey of the Pixel Corp so the decision to use it was pretty much made for him. Geoff talks us thru some workflow choice he made, tells us how his transition went from film, to Avid, to FCP Studio and then finally FCPX. We also have a little chat about the difference between Post and Live production.

“…to find its success” You’re never finished you just stop, you don’t reach success you are constantly working toward it.

FCG124 – Frame.io for FCPX (feat. Emery Wells)

Published by:

Getting your work approved and bought off on can be cumbersome. Frame.io is an amazing way to share your work with clients and then get feedback in a way that is fast, powerful, and unique. Just last week they released their FCPX companion app that extends the capability and functionality of FCPX in ways that are very interesting. In this interview Emery Wells and I go in depth on some of the features and I EVEN give Emery a slice of time at the end to share with us some features of the app that he is really proud of that no one is really noticing or using. Make sure you listen to the end.
