If you’re not careful and you spend too much time hanging out with me you may actually want to take a serious look at FCPX. Alex MacLean, my co-host on digitalCINEMAcafe has been hearing me go on and on about Final Cut Pro X for years now and when he recently was trying to streamline his workflow for posting files online for his grading clients I helped him develop a whole workflow around FCPX and Compound Clips. It didn’t stop there though. Now he’s embarking on a giant commercial spot and he’s go the bug. Hear how Alex has turned to FCPX for his main editor on this new project.

FCPX in a shared environment is a real thing, a VERY real thing. If you don’t believe it then you need to listen to Alexander Snelling. A little over a year ago Alexander released “The Document”, the definitive write up of how to share media in FCPX and work in a shared environment. This is an episode a long time in the making and we’re VERY happy to have Alexander join us on The Grill.

Dynamic Trimming redux. Sort of. Michael Towe is an old school editor with ties back to early avid and we talk briefly about the trimming of FCPX and Avid but we also go into may workflow preferences like Keywords vs. Favorites, the beauty of the magnetic timeline when it comes to revisions, Time Remapping and Auditions and how Michael used them in recent productions. There is a bit of “old man history” at the beginning of this episode but bear with it, You’ll get to the good stuff if you don’t care about the past.
