Not sure how to set up YOUR system. Wondering how to fine tune your workflow? Doug Orr of Tulsa Oklahoma isn’t either but thats OK, (see what I did there?). There are many ways to organize and store your data and your media and FCPX in a post 10.1.2 era can work in many different ways that allow you to choose how to store you files. Doug talks about using Keywords & Smart Collections, Events, Libraries and even the Finder. This episode goes thru all the various scenarios of organization.

FCG074 – Avid in TV (feat. Austin Flack)

Published by:

Why is Avid entrenched in reality television? In the interest of  being fair and hearing both sides of every story, I invited Austin Flack to explain from the view point of a hollywood based reality TV editor why he thinks Avid will not soon be replaced as the editor of choice.

We talk a lot about the role of an Assistant Editor and what he means to a television editor. Chris gets fired up about cutting music at the subframe level and w e go deep into the trim controls in Avid verses FCPX and Chris probably alienates a LOT of editors with one of his statements.

This is a VERY interesting show but definitely checkout some of the links in the show notes.

FCG073 – FCPX in Features? (feat. Gergana Angelova)

Published by:

What if 24 hours after wrap of principal photography you could have a rough “editors cut” completed of a major hollywod motion picture?  Gergana Angelova was able to do just that with the help of FCPX and Shot Notes X. The film, Septembers of Shiraz, featured Adrian Brody and Selma Hayek and was shot at Millennium’s Nu Boyana Studio in Bulgaria this summer. Her edit was an experiment to see how well it worked and how how much time the process would take. She Also talks about the process she went thru in cutting the Behind the Scenes DVD material for Expendables 3.
