FCG128 – Daily VLOGing with FCPX (feat. Max Chesnut)

Published by:

Play

I’ll be honest… I HATE the word “VLOG”, HATE it… that being said, there are some VLOGGERS that fascinate me. You’ve probably heard me mention Casey Neistat before and although I don’t suspect he’d ever want to be on THIS podcast,  I do HIGHLY respect what he is doing. Max Chesnut, a friend of mine I met this year at NAB is about to set out on a pretty epic 2 month adventure and Max is going to VLOG the entire trip, daily.  On this episode of The Grill we’re going to talk about the issues that Max is GOING to come across as he travels and creates video content, every day, in FCPX.

FCG122 – Subtleties of User Interface (feat. Maciek Kaliski)

Published by:

Play

I offered to answer some questions to brand new FCPX user Maciek Kaliski. We discuss various workflow tips and ideas. Part of the reason Maciek decided to give FCPX a try was that according to him “Rippling” doesn’t really work well in Premiere, I’m not entirely sure about that but I think Collision Detection has something to do with his observation.

We discuss the Three subsets of Data in an edit, What You’ve Imported,  What You Like, What You’ve Used, along with Favorites and Range Based Favorites.

I also discover the “broken” Toggle Color Board or “Effects” Command in the 10.2 update.

20,000 in 4 months. In an ELECTRIC CAR!!! Steve Sasman may be a bit crazy but what is even MORE crazy is that until I cornered the guy on Meerkat, he was going to cut all of his video blogs during the “Million Dollar Tesla Trip” in Screenflow. I talked Steve into meeting me on Skype on a Sunday afternoon so we could discuss somethings that would help him get thru the VIDEO portion of his trip. As for the driving and dealing with Charging the car up, I am NO help.

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.
