by Bill Rabkin 20 minutes ago
I recorded a recent Zoom meeting, as I've done many times in the past. I imported the zoom_0.mp4 file into a new FCPX Library. When FCPX finished transcoding, the imported clip had no video -- only au

by Bill Rabkin 4 months ago
In Motion 5.4.5, among the Scroll Text behavior's properties is "Adaptive Spacing." This property has a dropdown with 3 values: None (default), Line, and Paragraph. Unfortunately, Apple's Help for Mot

Many thanks, Terry. I had just stumbled upon CommandPost yesterday but had not installed it yet, and I didn't realize that it includes exporting the Timeline Index. I installed CommandPost a few minut
Title with Scrolling Text (Motion) Does Not Scroll in FCPX
by Bill Rabkin 9 months ago
In Motion 5.4.4, I created a title containing one Text item. I applied the "Scroll Text" behavior to this item and entered prototype text for a credit roll to be used in FCPX. In FCPX 10.4.7 I apply t

Thanks, Doug. I appreciate your going to the trouble. I should have mentioned that this behavior is not consistent. Sometimes the vertical scroll works properly in FCPX after I've modified the text. U

I completed a project that contained several text clips in the Intro, another several text clips in the Credits, and some custom Lower Thirds. Now I find myself with a new effort in which I could re-u

by Bill Rabkin 2 years ago
Thanks, Jeff. I do maintain several "REUSE" libraries for different types of projects that I do on a regular basis. The problem with my current one is that I thought it was a "one-time" need, so I did

by Bill Rabkin 2 years ago
I have 3 imported clips that I named "Left," "Center," and "Right," recorded at an event earlier today. In the Inspector, the Camera Angles are set to 1, 2, and 3, respectively. In the Browser, all th

by Bill Rabkin 2 years ago
Dumb User Error ! At some point, I seem to have set an In-point and Out-point on my "Left" clip, without noticing that I had done so. The In-Out range was only a few frames long near the beginning of
Consolidating several audio angles within a multicam sequence
by Brian Thomas 2 years ago
Say I have just created a multicam clip with several camcorders and a whole lot of short audio clips. Each (non-overlapping) audio clip has been assigned it's own 'angle' so I'm having to page up and

Rather than dragging-and-dropping, you might want to try copy-and-paste. That should let you position the Playhead exactly where you want to "drop" the clip, and paste it right there. Bill FCPX 10.4 i
FCP App is now a Massive half TB size
by Terry Flaxton 2 years ago
So I started using FCPX seriously recently as I find it so much more powerful than other edit systems - BUT: the app is huge now - 500Gig. So though I've edited for years (since 1976 - no, really) my

You might want to take a look at Final Cut Library Manager, from Arctic Whiteness (https: www.arcticwhiteness.com finalcutlibrarymanager ). This nifty utility lists all of your FCPX Libraries in a sin

by Bill Rabkin 2 years ago
I have 2 iMacs, each running Motion v5.3.2 and FCPX 10.3.4. On the older iMac, in FCPX I found that the built-in FCPX Generator named "Custom" in the Solids generator group no longer has the color pic

How can I now install v5.1.2 on my MacBook Pro?
by Bill Rabkin 5 years ago
For training purposes, I need to install Motion 5.1.2 on my MacBook Pro. It's already installed and up to date on my iMac. I am running Mavericks on both computers. The App Store now has version 5.2.1

by Robin S. Kurz 5 years ago
If you have already purchased it, then you just simply need to click INSTALL. The MAS will see you don*t have Yosemite and tell you the latest version you can install is 5.1.2 and will do just that. -
Switching from Final Cut Pro to Adobe Premiere Pro -- What do I do with Boris Title 3D text?
by Bill Rabkin 9 years ago
I've been editing with FCP for about 3 years, but with the release of FCP X I'm seriously considering switching to PrPro. However, I've created all of my titles, credits, and lower 3rds with the Boris

by Boris Yamnitsky 9 years ago
The best way to recreate Title 3D and Title Crawl is to use RED 5 as a filter in PPro. You will enjoy the same UI and text features. If you want to stay on the Mac, we are just about to update RED 5 w
