Timbrée is an amazing animated short film that was constructed in Apple Motion. Alain Boisvert takes us through the process of creating the complex animations and why he chose Motion over Adobe's After Effects.

This will be a story that is familiar to many. Joaquin has progressed from a very early version of Premiere, through Final Cut Pro 7 and now edits with the current version of FCP. And yes, he does love it.!

Chris Hocking demoed his BRAW Toolbox live on Ripple Training's YouTube channel. Worth a watch to see how this new tool adds a much requested feature to Final Cut Pro.

An app that adds camera EXIF metadata to files imported into Final Cut Pro has just had a large update. evrExpanse 3 now supports transcoding and XML import.

Everyone’s favourite mad genius Chris Hocking has been hard at work recently, and if you ever work with Blackmagic footage, you’re in for a treat. Two new complementary tools will now allow you to work with BRAW footage natively on the Final Cut Pro timeline, without transcoding, and also to stabilise that footage using gyro data from the camera itself.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably a fan of Final Cut Pro. And while new features have been added this year (tracking changes, voice isolation) there have been no revolutionary changes to how the app works. If you learned how to use the app last year, you don’t need to re-learn it this year, and it doesn’t look like much has changed. So… does it matter that there hasn’t been a great deal of visible progress? It’s complicated, so let’s dig in.

I didn’t expect this to work, but wow, it does. Genius.

Final Cut Pro is fast, but you can probably still work faster. While there are many, many shortcuts to learn, I’ve found that the best shortcuts are the ones you can hit with a single hand, and ideally, with a single key, without any modifiers at all.

Iain Anderson looks at script-based workflows and how third-party tools can help in Final Cut Pro.
