timecode window bug fcpx

We have had an email from a Final Cut Pro X user who decided to upgrade to El Capitan. Unfortunately, he reported that the timecode viewer in FCPX looks like it has some major display issues running with the new OS.

Today September 30th, Apple will publish the latest version of their OS X operating system, El Capitan. For Final Cut Pro X users, there are a few things to think about before hitting that upgrade button.

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. Patrick Southern, the assistant editor tells FCP.co how the productions were edited with the help of third party software tools, a state of the art storage solution and of course, Final Cut Pro X.

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.

DriveX-FCPX

One great thing about the recent FCP EXPO was the ability to talk directly with software developers in the FCPX ecosystem. We managed to get Roger Bolton from Coremelt cornered in a cubicle where he told us more about the recently released DriveX.

IBC preview 2015 

Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending not just the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, but we also visited the FCP EXPO event and the Supermeet.

It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to spot that we haven't posted a new article here apart from the FCPX update for a week. So what is wrong and why has the FCP news feed that's been active for nearly five years been put on pause?

**FxPlug runtime bug in secondary storylines fixed**

Well we decided to break our self imposed silence with news of Apple's updates across all of their professional video applications.

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!

Were you one of the ones from Europe that wanted to go to the FCPX Creative Summit because of the Apple presentation, but couldn't make it? Looks like the show might be coming across the pond for IBC 2015 in Amsterdam.

fcpx v Adobe Premiere Pro

Final Cut Pro X's speed and thus the benefits are gradually becoming recognised by editors in the industry. So on a new Retina MacBook Pro, how does Adobe's Premiere Pro match up to FCPX's performance, especially with 4K? Badly as Max Yuryev found out in his video. We are looking forward to the comments about this one!

FCPX Buenos Aries

How do you know Final Cut Pro X is popular? When you have to move into a tent as you've grown out of the usual meeting room! The recent FCPX meeting in Buenos Aires hosted by Leonardo Hancevich (Leo Hans) was a huge success.

We are always on the lookout for different methods to control Final Cut Pro X as an alternative to our Magic Mouse with its Multi-Touch. These customisable controls from Palette are very different from the normal jog wheels and sliders on existing control surfaces.
