Published by:

Even Photographers are trying to figure out what video editing program they want to use. My friend Frederick Van Johnson of This Week in Photo contacted me recently to ask the question, “FCPX or Premiere Pro”… wanna guess what I told him. This conversation is a result of a handful of eMails one day and discusses some beginners questions regarding FCPX.

FCG100 – An Incredible Year (feat. Cast of Regulars)

What a pleasure it has been. 100 Episodes with some amazing guests. A year ago I set out to “get the word out”, to tell the rest of the industry about this amazing tool that I had found and frankly really fallen in love with. Yea, it had some short comings but the strengths completely outweighed the problems and I just wanted people to hear that message. However something else happened. Where as I WANTED to tell everyone what I knew, instead found that I learned from each and every guest that I had on the show. The FCPX community of editors is amazing, their knowledge and experience is varied and each and every episode I took away tid bits of knowledge that made me a better editor.

My hope is that you can do the same thing. The Grill has been an amazing experience and although I doubt I’ll have ANOTHER 100 episodes a year from now to share I KNOW there will be at least 1 a week. So enjoy this celebration and enjoy the camaraderie… Welcome to The Grill.

There are so many aspects of FCPX to discuss and you can’t talk about it without delving into the Mac OS as well. Charles Silverman and I had a lot of Skype problems one night and re-recorded a few days later… and this is what you get… Honestly, it was better the first night.
