NYC Marathon Time Lapse edited in FCPX

Hi all,

After reading the posts here it seemed like it was safe to take the FCP X plunge. Here's a video I did at my day job:

It was a pretty simple editing project, but a good way for me to check out FCP X. I liked X a lot and plan to stick with it as long as Apple keeps improving it.

Best,
JP

Absolutely fabulous images.

It might seem churlish to criticise this film but it was a real shame that the camera functions on the top shot at 1:16 were left on Auto. Either the focus, iris or gain was not locked off.

I personally would have rejected that shot as unusable. There are enough great shots of the event to have not missed it.

I had the same thing happen to me with a time lapse of a road crew laying a specialist surface on a road.

Unfortunately with a time lapse you are stuck with what you have got.

No offense taken, I shot all the top-of-bridge scenes and I cringe at those few shots too. But I needed them for the edit, so they stayed in. I think I might have been able to tweak it a bit more in post, but we were on a tight deadline.

I didn't think the autofocus on the Sony EX1R would hunt like that and didn't notice it while shooting. You can see that the problem goes away a few seconds into the first shot of the second wave of runners, when I finally figured out the issue and went to manual focus. Never again!
