Wondrous Highlights: working with FCPx

I had the privilege of attending the Wondrous Elim Bible Week in the University of Ulster at the Jordanstown campus last week. My wife Charlotte is the current Elim Children’s Work Director and was heading up a team of workers under the title of Generation Next. We were staying in the excellent Delriada student accommodation in a family apartment with our 2 small boys.READ MORE


Final Cut Pro X

I love Final Cut Pro X! There I said it. I love it. It’s a breath of fresh air. I’ve been using video editing software since Adobe Premiere 4. I moved to Final Cut Pro when I bought a Mac about 8 years ago. It was better and more powerful but not much different from Premiere. It got things done. But it lacked something. Over time it grew more abilities but basically stayed the same. As did its competitors.

In 2011 Apple did what it is good at. It gave us a new take on the NLE. Like it did with phones and tablets it revolutionised the NLE. Final Cut Pro X was released. It was different. “Think different” said Apple. “I don’t want to!” was the shout of Final Cut Pro 7 users. I bought it and immediately jumped in with both feet on a live freelance project for another video production company. At first I was confused. In a short time I was flying through the edit. I made mistakes. I sometimes pulled my hair out. But strangely I loved it! I embraced the complete paradigm change in video editing. I now love the file structure, the organisation of events. Keyword collections and auditions speed up editing and clip selection. Mutlicam is amazing compared to FCP7. Colour correction is very food for an NLE. I have grown to see the advantages of the magnetic timeline. The interface looks nice.
