Taking FCPX out for a new test drive
by greg janza 2 years ago
I work almost exclusively in Premiere so I don't stay current with what's happening with FCPX and I rarely take it for a spin. However, I recently was asked to do a project on FCPX and so I had a new

Andy Neil "I don't have any NTFS drives to test this, but if true, that's a semi-legitimate complaint. But still it's more or less the price of doing work on both PC and Mac systems. It's a pain, I k

Hue keyframing
by Sebastian Alvarez 4 years ago
Either I'm missing something or keyframing hue values in FCPX is very poorly designed. In every other NLE or motion graphics program I've ever used, including Premiere and AE, the hue wheel starts at

Sebastian Alvarez "It's not, but you have a good point in starting at 360. Keyframing 360 down to 320 works just as I would do 0 to -320 in Adobe software. Thanks for the tip." Well, when you say "it
Converting 60i to 24p: Twixtor or FCP X's process?
by Noam Osband 4 years ago
I'm making a film that is 24p. I have a lot of footage that I thought was being shot in 24p but was really being shot in 60i. I know I can create a 24p timeline, drag it to the timeline, and FCP X aut

by Howard Duy Vu 4 years ago
There are two ways to deal with this: 1) Bring it into Cinema Tools and do a reverse telecine on all the footage. You can do a batch of them, and it will strip out the pulldown and get you to 23.976.

Have you tried importing your RAW dng clips into the Resolve media pool BEFORE importing the XML (keep 'automatically import media clips into source pool' unchecked) Once Resolve is aware of the clips
Yosemite upgrade and FCP 7 does not recognize media
by Matt Kohn 4 years ago
I know I shouldn't have upgraded my OS to Yosemite, but I did nevertheless. I am still using FCP7 for a major project. I've switched to Premiere for newer projects, and I am not having this problem in
Re: Yosemite upgrade and FCP 7 does not recognize media
by Howard Duy Vu 4 years ago
You need to say what type of media you're using, etc. We still run FCP7 on occasion on Yosemite, and it actually works fine for the most part (but Motion 4 no longer works). I had an old project I had
Audio Only cross fade in X
by tony west 5 years ago
There has been a lot of talk about not being able to do it below. I wonder if folks have seen this. The boys are at it again : ) http: youtu.be 9TT-ahJEHd8
Re: Audio Only cross fade in X
by Howard Duy Vu 5 years ago
Well that's not a bad feature to add, but I would only want it as a toggle because I wouldn't necessarily always want an audio crossfade with every time and audio clip butted up against another one. A
Resolve Lite Question
by Anthony DeRose 5 years ago
I am playing around with Resolve Lite, and have a question about XML from FCP and re-exporting through resolve. Project originated on the Alexa at 2K Apple Pro Res in Log C. Was edited in a 1920x1080
Re: Resolve Lite Question
by Howard Duy Vu 5 years ago
You could bump it down to 1080p, but there's no reason to do so. FCPX will keep your framing when you round-trip back into the program. Make sure you tell it to render out to 2K. If I understand you c
Viacom Broadcast Specs in FCPX

I really need help guys. I have a music video I have finished for a client and it will be aired on MTV. They sent me the broadcast specs but I have no idea on how to convert them for broadcast. Is the
Re: Viacom Broadcast Specs in FCPX
by Howard Duy Vu 5 years ago
Yes, the compound clip method should work fine. Just wanted to chime in and say if you wanted to go the Compressor route as above, I misspoke about making the framerate 59.94. It should actually be 29
Deal-Breaking FCPX Issues. Is My Info Inaccurate?
by Lillian Young 5 years ago
I am a FCP 7 user (since 2006), and switched to X (10.0.9) in late December, 2013. I watched several courses by reputable instructors, not random YouTube quickies. I committed myself to FCPX, and star

Richard Herd "Slight disagreement, here. For me, I use quite a bit of AE in a sizzle reel. I'm not sure the best workflow (currently) for X into AE; it'd be nice if there was a dynamic link between X

FCP X destroys my audio

This is now the second time that FCP X has burned me on audio. I have a 5 min. project with audio sources coming from a 4-channel WAVE file (mono mic tracks) and stereo music cues. Stereo mix. Everyth

How is this effect achieved?
by Scott Silvia 7 years ago
Can anyone tell me how the effect that is occurring on the styrofoam cup is achieved at (1:25) of this video http: www.youtube.com watch v=M6UEkeIsNxM&list=UUCaNPZz8srvy9fA3h8dDbKA&index=9&feature=plc
Re: How is this effect achieved?
by Howard Duy Vu 7 years ago
It looks like it's a white cup, so you could use the luma keyer in FCPX (or use a green cup, etc). Also, according to that video, it's doesn't look like the space layer has any motion tracking at all.
