Holy Cow! What a Week!
Apple updates Final Cut Pro X
to version 10.0.3 and, suddenly, the floodgates open on 3rd-party plugins. Intelligent Assistance
releases a utility to convert FCP 7 projects to FCP X. AJA
and Blackmagic Design
release drivers to support broadcast video monitoring. Red Giant
, Noise Industries
, and others release software plug-ins. Andreas Kiel
, of Spherico, released a free utility to install custom Motion templates in FCP X called Motion Template Tool
AND! We've updated our FCP X: New Features
training...after less than a week! Recently, we partnered with JFD Communications
to develop closed captioning for our training. I've had a lot of requests from around the world to create training for folks that are not native English speakers. So, now all our FCP X: New Features
training includes closed captions!
These initial movies are a test to see if there is interest in the market. Let me know what you think!
