FCG109 – Experience or Baggage (feat. Michael Towe)


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.

    It’s all good, but I don’t know why people fuss about FCPX not having dynamic trimming. As Steve Martin demonstrated on fcp.co, FCPX’s trimming ability is as dynamic as it gets.
