Multiple versions in FCPX

This is a quick tip and not necessarily the best way of managing multiple versions of edits but so far I find it works well.  Just like you can audition specific clips in the FCPX timeline you can also audition a group of clips and also a full edit. Just select all the clips in […]

Managing Media in Final Cut Pro X

Update July 20 2012 Since it’s initial release, FCPX has had some welcomed improvements in performance and usability including the ability to reconnect footage.

HDSLR using your computer as a monitor

This is a pretty obvious tip, but one I have totally overlooked because I usually disregard any software that comes with cameras, resorting to third party solutions.  Most Canon DSLRs should come with a piece of software called EOS utility.  It’s only now that I have tested this out with my 7D and it not […]

Time Machine and FCP conflict

This is a small problem with a simple fix but might not be apparent at first.  I’m using an external hard disk connected to an Airport Extreme to backup my files with Time Machine over the WiFi network.  This is a pretty good solution as I don’t need to worry about plugging anything in to […]
