by David Hudson 4 years ago
Wonder if any multi platform editors might be able to shed some light. GFX artist works in AE and outputs a file (has been a TARGA and A TIFF so far and same issue) with an alpha _Straight that file i

In FCPX, change the color space override to sRGB or 709 in the "Settings" version of the Inspector. Like this: override.png
Avid and RED Weapon generated QTs
by David Hudson 4 years ago
So RED can now make Prores files alongside the r3D files. But can Avid use these When I AMA to the camera roll folder Avid only links to the r3D files and ignores the QTs. How is anyone using these
Re: Avid and RED Weapon generated QTs
by David Hudson 4 years ago
Yes you can point dirtectly to each one and pull in, but that is A) cumbersome and B) creates a separate clip with no relation to the r3D file. And Bear in mind this is RED saying (at 2015 NAB) this f
Mask controls: how to lock alignment
by David Hudson 6 years ago
Is it possible to lock the control pucks for the mask effect 2 things: I want to be sure the mask line is straight across screen. and also to adjust the line by moving 2 points together.
Re: Mask controls: how to lock alignment
by David Hudson 5 years ago
Very simple: I need to make straight lines with a mask tool. It seems crazy to me that every apple application uses the same keys (hold the shift key) to lock alignment of things yet FCPX not so!!
any benefit? R3D better perform vs Optimize transcode
by David Hudson 5 years ago
SO I have R3D files: Playback is fine of clips if I am in "Better Performance" (no go in better quality-files are all 5K or above) So is there any reason I would want to transcode optimize the clips
Re: any benefit? R3D better perform vs Optimize transcode
by Noah Kadner 5 years ago
Depends what playback resolution debayer quality you want to see. If you don't have a broadcast 4K monitor you're not really seeing 1:1 anyway so it's kind of a moot point. Noah FCPWORKS - FCPX Workfl
Transcodes from RedcineX
by David Hudson 5 years ago
Wondering if anyone has done this: Transcode R3D files on a separate system (it has the Rocket card!) using redcineX to prores LTs Then use those transcodes to edit, then to finish use relink to attac
Re: Transcodes from RedcineX
by David Hudson 5 years ago
So you had to relink each clip individually, thats what I was finding. As soon as I tried a few at a time I couldn't get it to relink. Bummer.

Looking for project naming conventions to prevent updating wrong version
by Ariane Fisher 5 years ago
We currently name projects: LNAME_FNAME_PROJECT TYPE_EDIT DATE But twice now, upon receiving a recut request an editor has updated a version that was not the most recent version. Obviously, diligence
Re: Looking for project naming conventions to prevent updating wrong version
by David Hudson 5 years ago
We do basically the same here: 1. each timeline is incremented RC 1 if you use the space before the version number FCPX will update that number automatically!! (RC-short hand for rough cut FYI) 2. Als

change effect duration issue
by David Hudson 5 years ago
Ugh-Maybe I'm looking at this wrong: I have an transition (dissolve for discussion) Hit "cntrl-D" to see the duration, 12 frames. I want it to be 1 sec so I type "1 . " effect icon grows to reflect it
Re: change effect duration issue
by Andy Neil 5 years ago
Double click the edit point to open up the precision editor. Verify that you have enough frames on BOTH sides of the transition. Try to grab the end of the transition and manually make it bigger. Also

So I ve been working a job and I have been using Favorites to subclip my Footage and I have come across a weird troubling thing FCPX does. And I tried this on 2 machines and got same action from FCPX:
Re: FCPX Favorites bug?
by Nicholas Kleczewski 7 years ago
