Re: Sharing FCPX projects by Paul Golden 2 months ago One other thing I forgot to mention: this workflow depends on each editor working sequentially not simultaneously on the project. It would be possible for you to have two FCPX libraries and each refer
2017 Mac Mini review by andy patterson 2 months ago Just a simple review of the Mac Mini. It works OK for my needs but it would be hard to recommend a Mac Mini over a Windows PC. Overall I like the Mac Mini but they are pricey. Let me know your thought

Re: Starting pan/zoom earlier by Paul Golden 5 months ago You could extend the clip head temporarily, set the keyframe and then roll the clip in point back to where it was. The keyframe will live out to the left in limbo but still be attached to the clip.

Re: Where is my AE bottleneck, GPU or CPU? by Paul Golden 1 year ago I have found that rendering to an external Thunderbolt drive is faster than rendering to the same media drives where my AE project lives. For example, I have all of my media and AE project file on a 6

Re: 4k Stopmotion with a DSLR by Paul Golden 1 year ago One other thing about dynamic range: don't get hung about it if you're lighting an indoor set! Presumably you'll have time to adjust your lighting ratios, test shoot, and look at footage before commit

Re: FCPX round tripping by Paul Golden 5 years ago As far as I know, any masks or tracking will be baked into rendered color corrected ProRes files that are reference through the XML by FCPX. Resolve does not export tracking data or masks on their own
