Chris Fenwick and FCPX Pros & Cons – Crossing the 180 #106

fenwick-flippedToday we bring you part 2 of my Final Cut Pro X series with fellow podcaster and veteran editor Chris Fenwick. This week we get into the meat of the discussion on what we love about FCPX. We’ll cover some of the specific problems Final Cut 7 editors have addressed like how to work around the magnetic timeline to put clips where you want them and how to work with a track-less system. We also address perhaps one of the most powerful features of the program. But it’s not all roses. There are some aspects of Final Cut that drive us both bonkers. I hope someone at Apple is listening and will take our constructive criticism to heart.

If you’ve ever had any doubts about Final Cut Pro X, this episode can put all your concerns to bed. As I’ve mentioned before, it still may not be the best solution for your particular needs, but after today, you should have no doubt that this is a program perfectly suitable for the professional. Enjoy!

Tips, Tricks and Education for Filmmakers

It seems like Canon is dead set on confusing us with all their camera models. T3i, T4i, T5i, 60D, 6D, 7D, 70D…what is the difference among all of them? How is a DSLR filmmaker to decide. Well, Mike Duval from LensProToGo gives us some insight into that.


Kelly Simants of Sage Wedding Pros and one of the developers of  The People Plan is back, and this time she’s addressing the issue of how to properly discipline employees.


And we continue our cinematography series with Patryk Kizny of DitoGear. This week Patryk talks about making creative decisions and pre-production. Also be sure to check out their spotlight section for articles and inspiration on filmmaking techniques.
