final_cut_pro_noise_removal

Every Final Cut Pro editor has come across this problem, background noise behind an interview. Hiss, hum, machinery, it can all make hearing those important words difficult. This can be exacerbated if you want to run music underneath or if you are cutting in and out of the interview and can 'hear' the edits. This tutorial shows how round-tripping via Soundtrack Pro can remove that unwanted background noise.

So you're an independent filmmaker and you're looking to produce your DCP (Digital Cinema Package) so you can exhibit at Cannes or Venice. Previously you'd have had to cope with the expense and complication of going to a major facility. No longer. As more and more major film festivals endorse DCPS as their preferred delivery format,  QubeMaster Xport provides all the tools needed for generating DCP masters.

We were horrified when we read this post from Walter Biscardi. The ignorance of a producer that contacted him is unbelievable. If you are planning on making a film you wish to submit to a festival in the future, we suggest you take a read and follow his good advice.

***Update - Dual Thunderbolt iMac will support two extra 30" screens. Demo video posted***

Wow, the first multiple Thunderbolt Macs are just out: the goregeous updated iMacs. Dig deep though and you will find some interesting Final Cut Pro information in the specs.

There are plugins out there for 3D editing, but they are expensive even with the latest price cuts by GoPro. If you have FCP and After Effects and you're on a budget then this workflow is for you. Part two of the video and the finshed result after the break.

Do all the old versions of Final Cut with manuals really add up to 17kg? The dumping of the boxes got us thinking though, what should we do to prepare for FCPX?

A post FCPX sneak peak Larry Jordan tutorial.  Larry shows us the basics of making different sized versions by exporting from the timeline and then using Compressor.

We noticed on the recent FCPX sneak peak video or screen grabs that one of the 'stock' effects was a 'Day to Night' filter. This set off a conversation with another editor about the best way to get the same look in FCP7
