Automatic Duck, the timeline translation software developers, are back in business after a four year hiatus. The father-and-son team of Wes and Harry Plate are marking their return with the launch of two new products: Automatic Duck Ximport AE and Automatic Duck Media Copy 4.0.
I have a really urgent question that I'm hoping someone in the know can answer - it concerns exporting PAL 16:9 video (with audio) from FCP, in such a format/compression that is acceptable for UK broadcast.
Leading up to today's Mountain Lion release, Final Cut Pro 7 users everywhere were sweating bullets wondering if their beloved Apple based editing platform would finally be killed off (that is, be incompatable with future OS updates). Well, for those of you looking for that bite sized bit of information, here it is: Final Cut Pro 7 still works with OS X Mountain Lion. That said, I'd advise FCP 7 users still sitting on the sidelines to make a decision: Apple, Adobe, Avid, or Sony (if you're OK switching to Windows). Apple can't support FCP 7 forever.
Hi folks. New member here. Is there much "Apple Computer/Software only" screencasting work out there? I've been producing tutorial software screencasts for a little over a year now. I occasionally runacrossa potential screencasting job requiring Mac software such as Final Cut Pro or ScreenFlow (posted requirements).
I am a student learning to use Final Cut Pro, and I am trying to obtain a certain "overlay " effect. I want to make a music video of myself playing three instruments and another person playing two, and we would all be in the same shot. I would have to play a drumset which is notmovable. I have a green screen to use and I vaguely understanding keying. The school only supplies a kodak "Flip" style video camera, yet there are shoulder mounts to use if needed, if camera type matters. If anyone could walk me through how to achieve this, it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm a wedding photographer who has just started using her 5dMKii to make promotional videos and vlog entries on my blog. With some of my past projects in iMovie, there would be blockyness in the blacks and grays. So I went to apple and they told me the blockyness problem I was having was that iMovie was unavoidably compressing my files from my 5DmkII output during the transcoding, they suggested switching to Final Cut Pro. In asking a few of the videographer's I've worked with, none of them have mentioned working with FCP. They are either working with Vegas or Premier.
I edit film with FCP and I have reached a point where I need a better computer. The Mac Pro I have now dates from 2006/2007 and is way to slow for my needs. The question now is: should I upgrade the computer I have or should I buy a new iMac or Mac Pro. I would appreciate any advice! I'm of course looking for the most cost effective solution.
