Published by:

Play

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.

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)

Published by:

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.

FCG099 – Speaking Persuasively!!! (feat. Charles Silverman)

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.
