Published by:

Cold Mountain for FCPX? Maybe. In early 2014 news started to leak that a major Hollywood film was being cut on FCPX. Many people have said that would be the tipping point for the acceptance of Final Cut Pro X. I don’t really agree. However, Michael Matzdorff, was the assistant editor on the project and he has some great insight into the workflow and what worked well and what needs improvements in FCPX. We hope you enjoy this episode and remember. “DON’T CUT WITH YOUR STEMS!!”

Published by:

TED Conferences’ Motto is “Ideas Worth Spreading” and now they are spreading this idea, “FCPX is a powerful tool”. Hear what happened when TED, which turns out TONS of content, decided to go all Final Cut Pro X in New York City. Also, don’t miss the discussion at about 47 Minutes about their export procedures… VERY interesting stuff. We also talk about “Progressive Disclosure”.

FCG081 – Making Power Simpler (feat. Noam Kroll)

Noam likes to shake things ups and try something new once in a while, which frankly, makes most of us very uneasy. Recently he started taking a long hard look at the quality of the H264 files he was creating and realized that there was a difference between what he got out of FCPX and Compressor and the files he was creating with Media Encoder and the Adobe suite. Do you wanna guess which looked better?

Big thinkers are VERY entertaining to me. People that don’t just think “outside the box” but take the box and shred it up into little pieces and them stomp all over it. Peter Wiggins of fcp.co is one of those thinkers and we are very honored to get an hour of his time to discuss FCPX with him. Peter is an extremely knowledgeable guy and has been a real champion for FCPX in the community. I think you’ll love this interview.
