Batch changing metadata on exported mp4s
by John Young 1 year ago
I've exported over 1000 versions of a video, differentiated by an opening take where the talent addresses the viewer by name. So each file is named by the person's name to whom the video is addressed.

I opened Automator but didn't see anything in the Movies actions that would accomplish this. After more research, I stumbled upon the app Subler that I think will be good enough. You can queue up movi
Why no iOS control surface app?
by Oliver Peters 1 year ago
Logic Pro X has a companion mixing and control app that runs on an iPad for use in tandem with a Mac running Logic. Why is there no equivalent app from Apple for FCPX Oliver Oliver Peters - oliverpete

This long-suffering editor would love it if FCPX itself received the same kind of updates that Logic Pro receives. Every time Logic Pro update comes out I get jealous. Thank god for Commandpost for fi

I don't complain about them adding things like VR, because they are adding things that improve the editing experience, which is what I care about. The new title tool is a vast improvement in workflow.

FCP X features or lack thereof. Your opinion on the rationale.
by Tangier Clarke 3 years ago
Re: FCP X 10.3 Folks, I am a proponent of FCP X for a lot of reason I don't care to rehash here and now. I've been committed since it's buggy release. The updates (large and small) have been great, bu
Re: FCP X features or lack thereof. Your opinion on the rationale.

Ah, right you are. I didn't realize that because pretty much the only effect I use it on in Premiere is Opacity (not an effect technically). And the masks aren't available for that in FCPX. You can ad
Will FCX be around for a while?
by Glenn Payne 3 years ago
Hi guys, I'm about to invest in a nice imac and I'm planning to use fcx. I'm just wondering what the word on the street is about fcx. I'm willing to dive into the magnetic timeline world, but I'm just

Hi, I've always been a PC user but I've recently bought a maxed out retina iMac. I want to escape from Adobe as I've always found Premiere buggy and slow. I've been trialling FCPX for the last two wee

FCP 10.1.x Stuck in Proxy mode?
by David Parke 5 years ago
For a while, I thought it was just the video card. I am on a MacPro 4,1 (Early 2009) running 10.9.5 with 26 GB RAM and it HAD a ATI Radeon 4870 HD 512mb. The issue started, I think, with FCP X 10.1.1

This just happened to me with one of my systems. It was stuck in Proxy mode, and no amount of clicking would change it. There was another feature on the timeline that didn't work either but I can't re

No tablet for me. Like I said, Keeping the Event Viewer open has minimized if not eliminated the problem. The only other solution that always worked for me was to click over into the event browser in

OK. I want to know why this is a bad idea. I've been playing around with creating empty Compound Clips in my Events and using them as FCP 7 "Sequences" since from reading the manual they act just like
