color_grading-_FCP_Oliver_Peters

With all the articles about FCPX floating about the internet, it is nice to get back to the craft of what we do. Oliver Peters does exactly that with this informative article on color grading.

Another tutorial from Wes James, this time he animates on the elements of a poster.

Well according to FCP Towers, my article on the subject above had some good hits/tweets so I thought it might be interesting to write an update after digesting the FCP Sneek Peek.

If you've ever searched Google for an answer to a problem with Final Cut Pro, then chances are you'll have visited the Apple discussion boards. Check your bookmarks as the best FCP forum on the web has had a makeover.

Take a look at the video above. The new FCPX in action? Wrong, it's an iMovie timeline worked up by Scott Simmonds. Looks slightly familiar doesn't it?

Is it possible to give an award to a product that hasn't been released yet? Of course as Videomaker have given the NAB 2011 award to Apple's Final Cut Pro X.

Some kinetic typography gives clear advice on how your scratch disk works in Final Cut Pro. Short but to the point and rather cool too. Video after the break.

Walter knows his stuff, he grades using Color on a regular basis and has produced a top selling Color instructional DVD. He managed to squeeze some demo time at NAB to take a look at Baselight and the FCP plugin.

Two reasons for posting this video. The first is the fact that PluralEyes is a pretty amazing piece of software for synching clips and audio together. The second, well take a look after the break.

Those FCPX Presentations filmed from iPhones, iPads, Canons, Nikons, and Panasonics are starting to spring up across the net, like Pink Floyd bootlegs. Some have been filmed from bags, other like Emmanuel Pampuri's managed to get both presentation party and screen in shot, and with a somewhat frenzied sting on the front! Well done Manu for posting so soon. Part 2 after the break.
