I had a great time in London at the Broadcast Video Expo! (Well, aside from coming home with a cold...) We should post some video from it in a week or two.

FOUR new articles this week - plus our webinars are starting back up with a detailed look at rigging and widgets in Motion 5.

The Digital Production Buzz is now part of the official media at NAB - we'll have more details as we count down to the festivities in April. We are planning some great shows with great guests!

Also, we added my Final Cut Pro X: Effects video training to our subscription service. And we are in the process of adding Final Cut Pro X: Editing as well. Now is a great time to join and save money!

Let's take a look at what's new this week.

Managing Events and Projects      

For editors looking to understand how Final Cut X manages media, here's an article that explains the basics.

Learn where Events and Projects are stored, how and where you can move them, and how to determine which are visible inside FCP X by making them active or inactive.

Irudis Tonalizer      

Final Cut Pro 10.0.3 finally unlocked the ability to support plug-ins.

One of the first is Irudis Tonalizer - a color grading tool that provides more control that the Color Board in Final Cut Pro X.

Compressing Video for YouTube       

You can compress video for YouTube in a variety of ways.

One of the benefits to Compressor is that you can use templates and presets to make the whole process faster. This article explains how.
