Thanks for your replies. I guess Red Giant is thinking maybe it's time to step up to the Looks Suite, or Colorista
Does fcpx edit H264?
by Enrico Lappano 5 years ago
I still haven't made the upgrade from fcp 7 to fcpx because I like the old format. However, if fcpx would edit in raw H264 files, that would be a deciding factor because I find the upressing to ProRes

by Enrico Lappano 6 years ago
I brought the lens in the other day and compared it to another one and funny, the other one was actually softer. I guess my reaction was the shock that cheaper non L lenses could be sharper in any way

Between the three options for FCP 7 for best smoothcam is it safe to say first that the FCP 7 smoothcam plug-in is not even an option (at least from my experience, but I haven't compared it with anyth
