Working out how to edit large camera media such as 6K in the correct resolution and aspect ratio for delivery can be a nightmare. Robin Moran has done the maths and has figured out how to keep the quality and flexibility up in FCPX when shooting overscan and cropping a centre extraction.

If you couldn't make the recent FCPX Tour in Amsterdam during IBC, you really missed out. Not a worry though as all the presentations were recorded and we will be publishing them right here on a regular basis. Here are the first two:

creative summit expo

FCP.co has a table at the evening event at the FCPX Creative Summit later this month and we would love to see you. We also have a coupon code for 50% off the admission for you to get in for just $20.

A big update to a very popular plugin. Denver Riddle from Color Grading Central has announced the launch of Color Finale Pro for Final Cut Pro X

macOS Sierra FCP7 Cinema Tools

Two different outcomes for older software and the recent update to macOS Sierra. Cinema Tools dies, but FCP7 keeps going with a tweak.

Editors Keys very kindly lent the site a backlit illuminated FCPX keyboard to try out. So why not take it out on a real job and use it under pressure? What was the verdict?

macOS Sierra FCPX

Apple's new version of OS X has been released. Should you install it straight away? Or wait for any possible bugs to be fixed and third party developers to update their software. Is there also a hint on future collaboration possibilities?

HK3 beterstabilizer fcpx

These two plugins are similar but different. They both do the work of the internal tools within Final Cut Pro X, however both sets of developers say that their products do a much better job. Better keying with Hawaiki Keyer 3 and better stabilisation with BetterStabilizer from CrumplePop.

Day two and three of IBC were spent at Spaces, close to the RAI. We were there for the FCPX Tour event. If you didn't go, you missed one of the most important FCPX events to happen this year.

boris gen arts IBC2016

At one point, Sapphire plugins from GenArts were the expensive, but 'must have' set of tools for high end editing and compositing suites. The company has just been acquired by Boris FX, so we rushed over to the booth at IBC Hall 7 to talk to the man himself Boris Yamnitsky.

We love Final Cut Pro X user stories here on FCP.co, especially when they feature a specific workflow. In this article, Brian King runs through his process and techniques for editing a music video on FCPX.

Every month new VR videos appear that push the boundaries of what this medium can do. This is the story of how editor Duncan Shepherd put Final Cut Pro X at the heart of ‘Pure McCartney VR,’ a series of five innovative Paul McCartney VR video films made by Jaunt.
