Final Cut Pro X Information & Resources 13

After returning from an Apple Executive Briefing for #FCPX I feel a mixture of relief but in-trepidation. The updates will prove everything

My take on the Apple FCPX Briefing in London 6/7/11 | Peter Wiggins |
Yesterday I posted Tweets from Sam Johnson who attended an Apple event about Final Cut Pro X. Peter also attended, and has posted his take.
NOTE: There is a correction to yesterday's post; the volume licensing comment was for FCP7
Main item was FCPX demo which for the first time looked pretty good with somebody working it (apart from Randy) who knew what they were doing. Very slick compared to some of the recent 'stumblethroughs I've seen. I hope Apple put a version of that demo online.

The more I use #fcpx the more convinced I'm becoming that the Apple engineers really didn't use the thing.

REVIEW: Final Cut Pro X | Scott Simmons | Studio Daily
FCPX has changed so much and in such a way that making a judgment call on it is difficult. Most things in FCPX I either love or hate. There’s very little I feel so-so about. I love how FCPX can easily toggle an edit between a full-resolution ProRes edit and a low-resolution ProRes Proxy version. I hate that the option to transcode to ProRes LT is gone. I love how skimming means you’re holding down a mouse button less. I hate how there’s no real dedicated Viewer window when I skim those source clips.

Final Cut Pro X, Demo of Greenscreen Effect, GH2, 20mm 1.7 | Lars Peter Lueg | Vimeo
I just downloaded Final Cut Pro X from the App Store. I am really impressed of the standard keying effect. It works pretty well. Cause I found no video about it on the internet, I filmed a short demo. Just the preset with changing backgrounds.
