Good God, I need an archiving software solution (FCPX MAC)
by eric Thompson 4 years ago
The boss and I are fighting over archiving XDCam footage. We have two editor photogs that shoot quite a bit. He wants me to just dump everything via finder to a large external drive. This seems like a

by Neil Sadwelkar 4 years ago
Making FCP X archives is a foolproof and low-cost way of transferring data from the cards as they come. And then, importing cards or archives into an FCPX library is a neat (and low-cost) way of class

Yep, I always shoot progressive as most the time my edits are going to be watched on a computer, not a TV, but it is safer to do progressive, unless your client specifically wants it interlaced. Mark.
Final Cut Pro Quicktime Files to PC

I have drives I take back and forth between MACs and Windows machines often. The trick was to have a PC (NTFS) drive, and use a program on the MAC to help read write to it. In my photo studio we use t

I've downloaded the codec from the website and can see the video thumbnails but can't select them to put in to my viewer, let alone edit them. I get a popup that says codec not found. You may be using
