We came across this whilst hunting down another Vimeo video and we were hooked. Enjoy the skill and resourcefulness of a Foley Artist. Watching a horse trot past in a film will never be the same again!
"How to achieve a cartoon look" is always a popular question on the FCP forums. Simon Walker has put together a quick run through of the presets in ToonIt, a cartoon transformation plugin for your footage.
An old but excellent tutorial. Media managing is hardly the most glamorous side of editing but it has to be done. Even though disk space is becoming cheaper by the day, you can't keep every take of every shot. This tutorial from Peter Salvia brought to you by his second glass of Amstel Light during some downtime during his laundry, will show you how to condense those finished FCP projects down. We had this video up for publishing before the free webinar was announced, a good primer for that one and a half hours maybe!
Looks like this will be handy, a free webinar about managing media inside and outside FCP. The webinar starts at 10:00 PST 10th March 2011 and runs for an hour and a half. Sorry about the short notice, but if they would have emailed us we could have posted this a while ago.
It seems that everybody now can work Final Cut Pro. To say you can't risks being overlooked for a job, not being able to join in "What Codec" chats down the pub or more embarrassing, having to ask for help when you've messed up the screen trying. Fear no more, Pro Apps expert Alex Snelling has compiled his top ten FCP GUI errors from his years of teaching fresh new editors.
I feel a bit of a theme coming on here. 'Tutorial Tuesday' ok, maybe not, but we do have tutorials stacked up like planes coming in to land at Heathrow on a friday night. First up is Izzy with his amazing 7 hour collection.
We wish we hadn't seen this video. It gives us another reason to want to rush out and buy a new 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 MacBook Pro, if Thunderbolt wasn't enough! We will post the rendering speed results after the break, but I urge you to watch one of the most elegant bench tests going.
It started off as a few posts on Twitter about the Change Speed Segment feature. It grew into a bigger conversation to whether speedramps are latest effect that ranks number one on the list of tacky 'eye candy' editing techniques. Are we right or wrong?
