If you want to use your machine right away, go with tried and tested. Since none of the Apple apps support multi-threading at this point, dual core vs. single core is a moot point unless you are build

This is a strange problem I have no answer for...I have 5 sequences that I need EDL's printed out for, but sequence 4 will not export. All the others are fine but Sequence 4, nothing! No matter what i

If you have any freeze frames which are from a sequence and not from the original media, the edl export fails. It never even warns you that it will fail nor gives you a reason.

Though it is time consuming, I would recommend using After Effects to remove your pulldown and render out 23.98 fps QTs. The pulldown removal is cleaner than in Cinema Tools. See: http: www.lafcpug.or

Final Cut Pro, while occasionally hinky and equipped with a woeful Media manager, is perfectly suited to modern digital production methods. I work for a multi-platform animation studio and we could no

by Bryan Shelton 14 years ago
From what you wrote I am assuming that you are moving masterclips and timelines back and forth between various projects. If you move a timeline from one project into another all the clips in the timel
Decklink HD Weirdness
by Bryan Shelton 14 years ago
Just installed a Decklink HD Single link card in a brand new dual 2.5 G5 with 4.5GBS of RAM. The card seems to have issues. When playing out of Final Cut, the audio going through the card frequently d

I am foolish. After additional testing I have found that the visual pop and waver only occurs while playing out DV through Blackmagic NTSC DV video playback. The audio problem only occurs when playing

Hi folks, I am working with a guy and he need me to online a project for him. He is a FCP novice and he has a strange work flow. Instead of pre-=scripting and selecting specific clips he just brings i
