This week it will be 20 years since a jury returned a verdict of not guilty to O.J. Simpson for the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. A&E will air two documentaries that feature the plaintiff's deposition tapes that have been hidden away since the civil trial.

This new set of free plugins from Idustrial Revolution automates the application of handles to clips or audio components on a Final Cut Pro X timeline. It is one step closer to getting better audio controls in FCPX and should save time and clicks.

fcpx audio monitoring bug

After some heavy FCPX sessions, we thought it was a good idea to document one of the most annoying bugs with Final Cut Pro X, OS X and external audio. With some amazing timing and help we also found a fix!
