FCPX 10.0 Project

Hello all... I apologize if this is covered ground, but a search on these forums didn't yield the results I needed, and a google search came up empty as well. I have an old project done in the origina

MKV Rewrap for use in FCPX

Hello... I have re-wrapped an MKV file using Subler, outputting to MOV. If I play the resulting file (after Subler conversion) it looks great and plays smoothly in Quicktime and VLC on my Mac. If I im

I don't think Handbrake can circumvent AACS. I work with actors who are in films and shows and their sources are commercial discs.
Naming and Organizing Plugins and Presets in FCPX

I've been on FCPX since the beginning. I buy a good amount of plugins for titles and transitions etc. I have so many now that it's hard to remember and navigate which ones I like and or which ones I'v

Not really possible anymore - as far as I know - in 10.3. In older versions you had the themes section which allowed to sort and search all kinds of templates without changing the installation path. A
Audio Drift using FCP7 Log and Capture - Non Controllable Device

Hello All... I've got a bunch of old Hi-8 tapes that I'm trying to digitize. Because FCPX doesn't have a "non controllable device" setting (or at least one I can find) I've gone back to Final Cut 7. M

Hi Marc. This forum is mostly old curmudgeons that need to use FCP7 to make a living whilst waiting to see if FCPX will work for them or whether they will be jumping ship to Adobe, AVID or Autodesk af

FCP Brightness Shift when using Boris FX

The 3 titles in the link I shared are consistently producing these results. I'm not sure I know what you mean by "isolating it to the title only." What perplexes me the most is that even when I have a

Hello... I have a Final Cut Pro problem with a brightness shift on some of my clips. I do demo reels for actors, and I grab scenes from DVD's to put on their compilation reels.

When a new scene comes up I put a lower third Boris Text piece on the screen saying which film it is that the viewer is watching. In my timeline the clips playback consistently without a brightness shift or problem. It seems I can even export a full resolution Pro Res LT file and maintain perfect and consistent color and brightness.

Unfortunately when I export for the web using H.264 and AAC, on some (only some) of my text inserts, as soon as the first frame of the text comes up (which I use a cross dissolve on to ease in and out of the transition) the image immediately shifts darker. The shift actually happens randomly throughout the resulting H.264 file as well but the only thing I can troubleshoot MIGHT be causing this because of the example I'm going to show you is that it occurs around the insertion of Boris Text. I'm running Final Cut Pro 7 on a Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro with 4GB's of RAM. I edit directly off a G-Tech Raid that is connected via FireWire 800.

I've uploaded a clip from my current reel to show you exactly what I'm trying to describe. You can stream it at the following link.

I appreciate any help with this.

I use Handbrake and also DVDxDV Pro to take content straight from DVD sources. I used Cinematize at one point but don't like its lack of in out point flexibility. Thanks for the .MP4 tip to 422.
