FCP 7 killed in Yosemite?
by Al LeVine 5 years ago
It's just a beta (so real buggy) but this article seems to suggest FCP 7 is finally dead in the Yosemite Developer Preview... Curious if this will work itself out or not. For reference, I remember FCP
Re: FCP 7 killed in Yosemite?
by Sean Lander 5 years ago
I really hope FCP 7 is put out to pasture by Yosemite. It's time for it to go away. It's nearly 5 years without a significant update! I just can't handle the rigours of modern media anymore. Don't car
Multigroup in FCPX like you can in Avid?
by Uli Kunkel 6 years ago
Does anyone know if this is possible I'm talking about multi-grouping, where you make a sync map on your timeline, subclip all your audio video with aux timecode and group it all into one big clip. Th

by Sean Lander 6 years ago
Well I do a lot of work in reality TV.and occasionally use multicolor sequences, but I'm not a huge fan of them as you spend too much time juggling tracks. I was asked to do a pilot for a new reality

Hi guys. Doing a jog currently that has been shot with the Canon C300. All files were copied to a hard drive with folder structure intact. I've been importing the footage into FCP X with the MXF Canon

Jumping on this a bit late (2 years!). I'm having the same issue but with Canon XF Utility. I need to extract focal length info from an MXF file, so converting is not an option. I even tried re-adding
Change Clips Date in Event?

I am importing some old footage shot in the 80's and 90's. We captured these off the original tapes and want to get them in FCPX. The issue I have is that the date is the date when the digital file wa
Re: Change Clips Date in Event?
by Sean Lander 8 years ago
Interesting discussion. Would be nice if you could change dates easily but it isn't so. It your issue is that you want a little calendar that says 1980 over your events then maybe just create on file
FCP 7 Voice Over freezes program with OSX Lion
by Mark Chomiczewski 8 years ago
Hello Folks, It's been 10 years since my last confession, er I mean post. I'd say FCP has served me well over the years. The once-in-a-decade problem: Just installed OSX Lion and my FCP7 Voice Over lo

Yeah today after issues. I got it to work but it isn't pretty. Open Voice Over, Select your mic then quick as hell click in timeline. All is fine. Make sure you switch back to whatever you had before

For me the interface has hardly changed since I began using it in 1992. Then Final Cut came out in 1999 and basically cherry picked everything that was good with Avid and left the rest. Here's what I'
Can DSLR Video cameras do chroma keying?
by Kristian Tigersjäl 10 years ago
Hi people! I've heard a few times now that only pro gear can do proper chroma keying and that there is no point in even trying with consumer gear. Is this really true I'm filming with a consumer grade

FWIW just finished a job that was shot with 3 Canon 5D Mk IIs all green screen. Best keys we've ever pulled. I am not joking. We had talent behind plexiglass smoking a pipe that we were able to key th

Hi guys we are having an issue capturing to Pro Res 422 on an 8 core machine with 4 GB of Ram. (MacOS 10.6.1, Decklink 7.3.1) We are trying to capture the output of an XBox 330 using component. What h

Ok so I figured it out for myself. Even after clean installs of Snow Leopard, FCS3 and Decklink drivers the problem remained. Every time you captured to pro res you would get intermittent flashes of b
Media Manager in FCP Studio 3...

Bear with me, I want to give a bit of background before asking my question! I hate the Media Manager in Final Cut Pro. It's literally the bane of my life as an online editor. We don a lot of work invo
Re: Media Manager in FCP Studio 3...

Very accurate description about Avid. The other thing that Avid does differently to FCP is when it makes Motion FX it renders the clips at that speed. So effectively it is still running at your native

re-mapping up and down buttons

Hey y'all, I'm an Avid transplant and I'm still figuring how I want my keyboard mapped. Right off the bat, one thing that absolutely kills my flow is that in the Avid I have my Zoom In Out on Timeline
Re: re-mapping up and down buttons
by Sean Lander 10 years ago
Best thing about FCP is that you can re-map so much more than Avid. I bit the bullet and now try to copy fcp with Avid instead as I edit much less on Media Composer nowadays. So it's SHIFT up and down

Yeah thanks for the advice I did actually add the whole media drive and add it to the exclusion list. I'll rebuild permissions and see if that helps. Failing that I'll just ditch all the media and sta

To answer my own question it would seem that re-installing the drivers does work but you may need to manually select the decklink driver in GarageBand preference for output.R E D N A I L - M E D I A w

Doing some more testing it would seem that it is the Decklink Launch Daemons that are crashing coreaudiod. Removing them has solved the problem so far.R E D N A I L - M E D I A http: www.rednail.com.a
