FCPX and Compressor: H.264 Encoding Issues after Updating to OS 10.13
by Roland Blaser 2 years ago
Dear colleagues, For a customer out of FCPX I'm used to export videos as H.264 movies like this: Apple Devices 720p best quality. Before the Mac OS update to 10.13 High Sierra it always worked fine. T

Thanks for the input. Setting the parameters manually within Compressor instead of using presets was one of my first actions. However, it didn't work. While the single pass H.264 encoding works as bef
FCP 7 and Mac Pro 2014?
by Roland Blaser 6 years ago
Dear colleagues, some of you will wish me to hell for this question: Will FCP 7 run on the new Mac Pro You may think I'm one of the old guys who can't manage FCPX anymore. No, simply on my Mac Pro 2,1

Thanks for your points of view. Of course I will do a soft transfer to FCPX on my future Mac Pro. However for my main customer I produced around 80 TV reports with FCP 7. All the title effects, lower

Re: Truly depressing...

Lance, I'm with you. Apple could have sold me at least two Mac Pros in between. My Mac Pro 8 core 2,1 is still nice for FCP 7 but not compatible with FCPX anymore (the last one with 32 bit EFI). Of co

Hi Steve I'm not at NAB but most probably it's about what Larry Jordan got from Apple concerning FCPX. Maybe Sony has a prerelease... Regards, Roland from Larry's blog: MXF Plug-in Support FCP X has b
AJA io XT: how does it handle ProRes?
by Roland Blaser 8 years ago
Hi colleagues! In an earlier post I tried to clarify how io XT handles ProRes. However, the answers were not fully covering my questions. In the meantime I got a clear answer from AJA support - most p

Is the name clouding our judgement?
by Oliver Peters 8 years ago
It's been said a number of times by a number of folks, but would we be trying so hard to make FCP X work for everything, if Apple had, in fact, named it "iMovie Pro" (I'm not meaning this as a pejorat

Hi Oliver As a senior FCP user I expected Apple to improve a very nice and professional tool (FCP7) instead of bringing something completely different (FCP X). Means recoding and some GUI redesign. Ke

How many here really dislike audio tracks and the viewer?
by David Roth Weiss 8 years ago
If Randy Ubillos and his team at Apple suddenly had a change of heart, and they added both audio tracks and the FCP viewer to FCPX, how many of you would be pissed-off, how many would be pleased Pleas
Re: How many here really dislike audio tracks and the viewer?

My answer is "b" for sure (want the audio tracks back). For my TV workflow it is much easier to have the old fashioned audio tracks. Gives me a clear presentation of the whole audio stuff like IT, nar

AJA Io XT: Does it encode Apple ProRes while capturing?

Hi colleagues! Does anybody know whether the new AJA Io XT is able to encode ProRes on the fly while ingesting Why I'm asking: I'm used to a ProRes workflow. While the iO HD supported ProRes natively

Hello Gary Thanks for clarifying! Very strange that the hardware encoding (PorRes, Avid codec and more) is not underlined in their product description. After reading through all this stuff I came to t

Hi colleagues! Any news concerning AJA's Control Room software. At IBC it was announced for October. Not a big problem, I agree. I'm just curious... Regards, Roland

Hi Greg! I agree: better something that works instead of quick and dirty. However, after announcing it for October why not simply let us know that it takes a bit longer Any AJA people reading this for

Hi Alex! As soon as FCP starts it takes over ioHD control from the AJA control panel. FCP has priority before the AJA control panel. In other words: it is normal it has to be like this. Within FCP you
