My first post in years! I have been away from quite a while as life happened and I had to take a long break from filmmaking. But I'm finally back and it feels great to be filming...

Re: fcp user-still on the fence-adobe suite yeh/ney?

Rob,

I faced this same question much like you. I did shell out the cash and gave FCP X a good run for a couple of months. It has some very nice features and I like the direction that it is...

Re: Saying goodbye to FCP X...for now...

A couple of you have hit the nail on the head. Yes, after working in FCP 7 I developed habits, and habits are hard to break. This was just one instance where I found myself doing it the 'old' way. ...

Re: Saying goodbye to FCP X...for now...

Chris,

Despite your crash issue in Premiere as well, how do you like it after the switch? Did you use FCP 7 prior to FCP X and overall are you pleased after making the transition? Everything I...

Re: Saying goodbye to FCP X...for now...

Re: Saying goodbye to FCP X...for now...

Bill,

You are absolutely correct in your posting. I have been wondering when NOT using time machine would come back to bite me in the arse...and this would be that time. It is a hard lesson...

Saying goodbye to FCP X...for now...

I have given FCP X the benefit of the doubt for almost three months now. I bought it almost the second it went live. In the beginning even though I knew it had some major issues and missing...

Re: levels looked OK but recording sounded distorted

Essentially, what I think is happening in this instance is that the signal at the input stage of the camera going into the pre-amp was too hot and distorted the signal before it really hit the...

Re: 7D Lens and Setup help

On that budget you are going to be pretty squeezed. Make sure you get a body that comes with a 28-135mm kit lens since you won't have extra cash to buy another lens outside of maybe a 50mm 1.8 which...

Re: Wedding Trailer

Yeah, I'm glad you liked it enough to use it I guess its kind of a compliment to me for creating it. I was wondering why someone downloaded my trailer off of vimeo and this answers my question!
