FCG122 – Subtleties of User Interface (feat. Maciek Kaliski)

Published by:

Play

I offered to answer some questions to brand new FCPX user Maciek Kaliski. We discuss various workflow tips and ideas. Part of the reason Maciek decided to give FCPX a try was that according to him “Rippling” doesn’t really work well in Premiere, I’m not entirely sure about that but I think Collision Detection has something to do with his observation.

We discuss the Three subsets of Data in an edit, What You’ve Imported,  What You Like, What You’ve Used, along with Favorites and Range Based Favorites.

I also discover the “broken” Toggle Color Board or “Effects” Command in the 10.2 update.

Just when I thought I MAY be able to get my buddy Dave to try FCPX it turns out he tells me he is getting rid of the ONLY Mac he has in the house. This discussion is about what lead to Dave wanting to banish the iMac from the house and things that we can all do to be better computer users.

FCG120 – Million Dollar Tesla Trip (feat. Steve Sasman)

Published by:

20,000 in 4 months. In an ELECTRIC CAR!!! Steve Sasman may be a bit crazy but what is even MORE crazy is that until I cornered the guy on Meerkat, he was going to cut all of his video blogs during the “Million Dollar Tesla Trip” in Screenflow. I talked Steve into meeting me on Skype on a Sunday afternoon so we could discuss somethings that would help him get thru the VIDEO portion of his trip. As for the driving and dealing with Charging the car up, I am NO help.

Trying to figure out Apple Marketing is tough. Alex Gollner and I try to decipher what happened at NAB 2015 and take a close look at what the new 3D Text in Final Cut Pro X and Motion really mean and ask the question, Do we really need it?

FCG118 – NAB2015 & LumaSHARE (feat. Sam Mestman)

Amazing performance and incredible price, that’s what Sam Mestman, (yea, he’s back, I know) says about the new LumaSHARE shared storage appliance. Three days after NAB 2015, after a 2 days self imposed hibernation, Sam came out of his lab to talk about the brand new product he has been developing for video editors. LumaSHARE is a high speed, high capacity, yet affordable shared storage solution that is perfect for the small facility.
