Mac hardware choices for new set up.
by Joe Murray 2 years ago
I'm thinking of going back to Avid after many years on FCP as FCPX is just a joke and the old version is getting long in the tooth. In terms of hardware I currently have a 2 x 2.4 Ghz Quad-Core Intel

I have a few systems kicking around, including an MXO2 for use with my laptop. I haven't checked in a month or so, but back in January, it still didn't have drivers for the 8.03 Avid release, so I had

White screen in canvas viewer

Strange problem I've never seen before in FCP. When I scrub through the timeline, or leave the time indicator on a frame, all I get is a white screen in my canvas viewer (audio still comes through tho

Joe Murray "mastered to ProResHQ422" Nope, there's no such thing... It's either ProRes HQ or ProRes 422, but not ProResHQ422. In any case, there's an entire world of possibilities, but you haven't me

HDV Capture has gaps

Everytime I try to capture HDV, it keeps pausing out in the middle of a clip. By the time the machine catches up again I have lost a few seconds. It works fine on my laptop but not on my workstaion. I

Sometimes it happens a minute in, sometimes it will go as far as 5min. I've done it with "Create New Clip" ticked and unticked. The trouble is it happens right in the MIDDLE of a clip. I wonder if it

Check that the disc you are playing it back from has enough speed and "headroom". If it is nearly full you can have problems, especially if it is your start up disc. Also check that your open windows

MacPro SATA drives

I want to configure a MacPro with the intent to edit uncompressed HD with Final Cut Studio 2. If I order the computer with the four 1TB SATA drives that MAC offers, are those drives any better worse t

The other advantage of external drives is that if you system melts down you can move easily to a new system and keep working - as you will, of course have backed up your project files elsewhere - idis
Boosting low audio signal
by Frank Cervarich 9 years ago
I'm looking for a way to boost a low but clean audio signal with audio tools provided in FCP 4.5. I know I was told how but I just can't recall the 'how to' of it. Thanks so much for any help you can
Re: Boosting low audio signal
by Joe Murray 9 years ago
Obviously first step is to turn it's channels up all the way in the sound mixer. You can also boost the global levels - the two on the right. As this will affect the whole project, you may want to exp

First, get the computer out of the edit room. No dream setup needs extraneous noise. Second, acoustically treat the room. Don't waste a dollar on expensive amps & speakers if the room has poor acoust
