I know this may get some heat ... by Jeremy Garchow 1 week ago But Apple SSD prices are down in the new refreshes and across all the Mac lines. The 4TB upgrade option went from $2800 to $1400 in the top spec MBP. It's still a lot of money, but it's a lot less of

Re: Relinking audio incorrectly by Michael Gissing 1 month ago Audio linking is still an ongoing problem. I'm keen to use Fairlight more but at the moment I ask for an OMF or AAF and use my old Fairlight standalone software because it just works better.

Re: Roles: got 'em to work. by Michael Gissing 8 years ago Craig Seeman "It also means Apple will focus on core functions." That's the core of my comment. I can't see OMF export as a non core function. If FCPX couldn't export a quicktime everyone would have

Re: 5d prores transcode glitch by Michael Gissing 9 years ago Not much point in using HQ. Normal ProRes422 is fine for footage coming from a DSLR. Have a search on the Final Cut Pro forum for advice from Gary Adcock about avoiding HQ except for 2k up frame sizes
