Interesting Article... Haven't used Pixelmator, hype, or sketch before. I do like FCPX, Motion and Aperture though. IMO Motion does not compete with AE, motion is great for doing small graphics here o
Timeline/sequence versioning?

In fcp7 you could just duplicate a sequence and rename from there so every day or every half day you could archive your edit and see all your changes. I've done a little searching and it seems the onl

You need to use the cinema tools app to conform your footage to whatever frame rate you want to edit in to get that true slow motion look. Duplicate your footage before conforming. I'm not sure if it

Part of why it looks odd is because the lighting looks unnatural based on the background. You could try blurring the background to simulate a shallow depth of field and maybe scale up the subject a ta

Finalize the disc. If you need to use software on your Mac to rip the footage using Cinematize or Handbrake, then use a computer with a tray DVD to copy and burn it to a full size DVD. Then rip it on

Share to youtube taking a very long time?

I recently edited my first video in FCPX. I used FCP 7 a lot and I actually like FCPX so far. Usually I would export a self contained QT file then compress to H.264 for youtube. I did not buy compress

by Leighton Oosthuisen 8 years ago
I have had the same issue. My thoughts are that when you allow FCPX to decide what codec to use, it goes for 720P or even 1080, when uploading to YouTube. When you export, convert and upload you are p

Export settings to DVD (very long render times)
by Pat Harris 9 years ago
Okay, so I have been using FCP quite a lot but never really exported HD footage on a long DVD. I used a canon 60D Canon vixia hf20 (I think) all of the footage was converted to pro-res before editing.
