Thanks for the suggestion. It looks like it gets put automatically into the Canon EOS DSLR forum, but I've added it to the DSLR Video forum.

(Slightly OT but it is a topic with impacts for this forum) I think a lot of the angst about the "death of Aperture" misses the bigger picture of how Apple is approaching its media-related apps. When

Death of Aperture-FCPX Next?

This is precisely why I would be nervous about using FCPX. Forgot the fact about lack of tracks, audio mixer, etc. The fact that Apple just drops apps without thinking makes me nervous. I love their h

Re: 3rd party noise plugin?

It may also depend on your workflow. I use RX3 standalone and it's great but I've seen others say it's not so good as a plugin in X. For broadband noise reduction as a plugin in X, Sound Soap might do

It has been more than three months since we have seen an update. Slowly losing my mind, slowly going nuttier than a fruitcake and going to call a shrink to have my head examined.
Re: NLE Numbers - Once Again

It looks to me like Tony didn't either. He just pointed out the the CION ad singled out FCPX by using it rather than some other NLE. IMO that's the intriguing point.

I will also work "backwards," starting with the largest timecode in the notes list and working toward the start. That way the changes I make don't affect the remaining timecodes. Quick and simple.
Any tips for speeding up motion tracking?

I'm doing a lot of stabilizing of clips (mostly 2 to 3 minutes) in Motion 5 with the point tracker and while the results are good the process just seems really slow. Any tips to get the most speed

From Apple education rep concerning yearly site licenses: 10.1 is not a new version. 10.1 is what we call a dot update i.e. 10.1, 10.2 etc. These are free. If we deployed a new version i.e. Final Cut

I'm finding iDraw to be a great alternative to Illustrator. Opens .ai files and saves vector PDFs and SVG.
