Working solo or in a workgroup, it doesn’t matter but Ray Brown still has found FCPX to be an amazing asset in his career. Whether he is creating reality TV or commercials or person projects in Budapest Hungary Ray was able to transition from Final Cut Classic to Final Cut Pro X seamlessly. Ray also has long time exposure to the music industry growing up with his dad as founder of War, the very popular 70’s era funk band.

Confessing you are cutting in FCPX may be a career limiting move, but for Kenny Park it all turned out ok. After working on a feature documentary for an extend period of time at home, Kenny decided that it was time to tell the director that he had left Premiere Pro behind. Although Kenny is forced to use Avid in much of his work in Glasgow Scotland, his clear preference is FCPX.

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.
