Is Premiere letting you down? You aren’t alone. When I heard that Paul Joy had moved back to FCPX after several years of working in Premiere, I thought it would be a good chat to have here on The Grill. We also discuss Smart Collections, the Multicam Clip Editor as well as After Effects RAM Preview.

4 MacPro’s in a workgroup all running FCPX. So you say it can’t be done? Tony Gallardo walks us thru the thought process and some of the particulars of how they are moving their 4 suite facility from older Mac Pros all running FCP7 up to a much more modern 2013 MacPro environment all running FCPX and what it took to convince their staff of editors that this was, indeed, the  way to go. Tony is forward thinking and you’ll see why by the end of this chat.
