Today we bring you part 1 of a 2-part series on editing and Final Cut Pro X. I bring back fellow podcaster and veteran editor Chris Fenwick as we discuss various editing and work philosophies. Regardless of what NLE you use, you’ll find this first episode insightful as we talk about how to balance your style with the client’s brand; working with clients; balancing perfection with “getting the job done” as the client needs it; and more. Towards the end we start our discussion of Final Cut Pro X. Our hope is that this will be the definitive discussion that once and for all ends the crazy hype and myths about whether FCPX is a “professional” NLE, and about what the program can and cannot do. There is a lot of misinformation out there we plan to dispel. In part 2 we’ll go into more detailed discussion about how we use FCPX, those features which really make it stand out, and dabble in what we find frustrating about it.
