Adobe Dynamic Link is a fantastic feature that allows live interaction between different software applications. It is a really valuable tool that I really can’t imagine being without. Although there are already several really excellent demos on Adobe TV about Dynamic Link, a steady trickle of questions about the finer points of Dynamic Link functionality Read More
Several months ago, I made the journey from San Marcos, Texas up to Dallas to convene with a long-time friend and colleague of mine, Stuart Reid. Stuart and I were making the rounds at different creative studios in Dallas, in order to demonstrate the virtues of the Live Haivision / Kulabyte HD streaming platform, as Read More
In the past half-year, I’ve used FCP-X nearly exclusively for my corporate video editing. In that time, I’ve had to to deliver a wide range of work for a very diverse group of recognizable national clients – often under very tight deadlines. I doubt I could have hit these deadlines while delivering the same quality without FCP-X. That’s based on looking back at what I’ve done, the deadlines, the programs and client requirements and how FCP-X often helped me work faster and more efficiently than I was working before.

Let’s take a look at the changes introduced in both of these new releases. To read about the initial Read More
What FCP 1.0 might tell us about FCP X (and why theOklahoma Land Rush of 1893 is still instructive today) It’s now more than a week since the great FCP X “mad dash” began, and the dust is far from settled. Time, I believe, for a useful look at Final Cut Pro history, to see Read More
Dynamic Link goes one way for a given instance. But if you are using unique assets to make sure no sequences, comps, or clips — even if nested — are trying to make a round trip that would result in an endless loop (in which case the Dynamic Link with the circular reference is error-trapped and simply won’t work), then Dynamic Link has functionality in both directions. Several versions back, it was only one way. An After Effects composition could be put into Premiere Pro, but not the other direction way back when. That’s changed now though.
