FCG113 – Timeline Based Color Grading (feat. Denver Riddle)

Published by:

Timeline based color grading has been a dream of mine for years. Recently I stumbled across Color Finale, a new $99 plug in by Color Grading Central and immediately contacted Denver Riddle to come talk about its use and development. We also spend a fair amount of time discussing Resolve and some workflow issues that I’ve been perplexed with. Denver is a very knowledgeable guy and I think you’ll enjoy this chat.

FCG111 – A New User (feat. Alex MacLean)

If you’re not careful and you spend too much time hanging out with me you may actually want to take a serious look at FCPX. Alex MacLean, my co-host on digitalCINEMAcafe has been hearing me go on and on about Final Cut Pro X for years now and when he recently was trying to streamline his workflow for posting files online for his grading clients I helped him develop a whole workflow around FCPX and Compound Clips. It didn’t stop there though. Now he’s embarking on a giant commercial spot and he’s go the bug. Hear how Alex has turned to FCPX for his main editor on this new project.

FCG110 – FCPX gets Big Boy Pants (feat. Alexander Snelling)

Published by:

FCPX in a shared environment is a real thing, a VERY real thing. If you don’t believe it then you need to listen to Alexander Snelling. A little over a year ago Alexander released “The Document”, the definitive write up of how to share media in FCPX and work in a shared environment. This is an episode a long time in the making and we’re VERY happy to have Alexander join us on The Grill.
