FCG038 – Reflecting with The C47 (feat. Jem Schofield)

Published by:


A gifted trainer and prolific producer, Jem Schofield has been a power user of the Final Cut Suite for many years. A few months ago I caught wind that he was using FCPX and, given the prolific nature of his production training I guess it had never occurred to me to ask what edit platform he was using. Jem and I talk a lot about Motion and other workflow issues. We also may have discovered a recurring problem that a lot of FCPX users have been running into.

FCG037 – Reality TV and FCPX (feat. Scott Markowitz)

Published by:


Reality TV may be a natural fit for FCPX with its vast shooting ratios and the need to dig thru tons of material to find just the right sound bite to further the story along. Scott Markowitz tells how they are slowly adopting FCPX, one show at a time at Shooters Inc. in Philadelphia. We also get into the new paradigm that Motion has created and we discuss the difference between “Making an Effect”, which can be recycled and making a timeline in AE which is a single purpose solution.
