14 Editors all moving to FCPX at once? Good idea or not? Ben Brodbeck, who works for a large company in Illinios (he’s not allowed to say which one) has been pushing to have their internal video department make the switch to FCPX and it looks like come January 2015, he’s gonna get his wish. In this episode we discuss the pros and cons and what Ben did in order to help switch peoples minds and make them take another look at Final Cut Pro X.

In addition to all this we also take a giant detour through the world of Media Asset Management (MAM) and discuss some workflow ideas that may help GREATLY reduce the amount of storage that this company has to budget for.

The Proxy workflow in FCPX is pretty amazing. If you don’t use it, you may want to look into it. If you do use the Proxy workflow I promise you’ll learn something about it in this episode that you didn’t realize. Ron Dawson of daydreamermag.com and an alum of this show (FCG011) comes back to explain a very interesting problem that he came across in the Proxy workflow that is a part of FCPX and offers up a bit of a work around that he came across.

FCG102 – 4K for Instagram (feat. Joseph Linaschke)

Published by:

Instagram and 4K don’t often get mentioned in the same breath so when Joseph Linaschke of thephotosexpert.com (formally Apeture Expert) told me he was shooting an Instagram promo video in 4K I had to hear more. Its a facinating exploration into resolution, and workflow and a whole lot of Mac stuff.

DCC058 – That Jump off the Diving Board (feat. Joel McCarthy)

Published by:

“Get famous or die trying.” – Joel McCarthy Just wanted to make a film that he thought was funny. However the subject matter was a little out there so he decided that if its going to be unbelievably bad or horrible… as long as one character calls him out its ok to do the worst thing possible. In this episode we’ll follow the journey that Joel took from the inception of a short film into the execution and completion of a feature length project, all completed for an ultra low budget.

In the wrap up at the end of the show Alex goes into an explanation of how a theatrical DCP works and why you need them.
