Eyeheight have released complianceSuiteFC - a set of professional broadcast filter and generator plug-ins for Apple Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Express. The idea is that this package takes care of all your compliance issues, but with a retail price of £695, or £795 for sister product KARMaudioAU it seems a little bit outside the normal price range of the FCP eco system. More after the break.

Jorgen Escher made this FCP plugin in a response to a cry for help from Marvels Film. The plugin has been designed to battle the disturbing problem of micro-moiré which appeared after a Canon 5D MkII shoot. Micro-moiré manifests itself as red/blue color streaks and pixels that appear in natural and irregular patterns, such as hair, water and grass. Download details after the break.

We all know how hard it is trying to turn a buck out there. Well Hollywood Reinvented's Lawrence Jordan has been scratching his head to the extent that he's writing a book about how to survive the economic downturn.

After the break an insightful and amusing excerpt into his Top Ten techniques for increasing your profile.

Joel and Ethan Coen are well known for co-producing, co-writing and co-directing. Although their co-editing style is perhaps less well known, they are firm believers in the powers of FCP. More on True Grit's post-production process after the break.

We are really glad somebody has sat down and been through the audio filters one by one to see what each one does. Normally we stick to the favourites like compressors and hum roll-offs and don't have time to experiment, so this two part tour by FCP guru Jon Chappell is invaluable. The first part of his guide after the break.

It's always great to see new talent publishing Final Cut Pro Tutorials, so give a big hand to Wes James with his Diagonal Split Screen tutorial. Some good advice on dealing with PSD files and mattes. After the break there's also a link to his downloadable matte!

FxFactory from Noise Industries keeps on growing its set of FCP & Motion plugins. This is a good one, a zoom transition with a twist. (I don't know why but I want to say that in the accent of Serge from Beverly Hills Cop)

Supermeet_FCP

Crikey is it that time of year again? It only seems a few months ago that we were standing amongst friends and peers at the last Supermeet in Vegas. Ticket time has come around again and the early bird tickets for this years event have just gone on sale today.

FCP guru Larry Jordan has been busy again. He's created 68 new micro-tutorials. Each runs less than four minutes, so you can quickly get the answers you need to your common Final Cut questions. These are the results of a recent Webinar he hosted, chopped down into nice bite size chunks. A few hand-picked ones after the break.
