FCPX for News Shooters

Hi there, I've written a blog over on DSLR Newshooter about how I use FCPX in a news environment. I'd appreciate your comments over on that blog (or here)

Another positive story about FCPX in a professional environment - great story but let's hope this isn't a trend!

[Lance Bachelder] "great story but let's hope this isn't a trend!"

Why ever not? Should we not celebrate when a programme is improved?

I was kidding - the norm here is to gripe about X - we're not used to positive stories from paid professionals like yourself. Keep it up1

Hi James,

That's a really informative article. I loved the picture of your home work set-up with the very neat set of post-it notes on the wall.

I'm a big fan of the DSLR News Shooter site and attended a training session with Dan Chung in London a few years back. For me FCPX is great for short form films and like you I really appreciate the new approach to working with file based work flows.

The fact that despite a difficult start you continued and persevered with FCPX is probably an experience that many editors had.

Thanks.

As someone who shoots and edits ENG style often enough, I really appreciate your post. It explains well both the Event Database model and Roles for audio.

I'm curious about your experience of the magnetic timeline. It's never impeded me and it certainly makes things easier when I need to move pieces around as I rearrange a story. Yet somehow people see it as an obstacle they must overcome. You mentioned that you both love it yet it was hard to get your head around. What were the particulars in that?

Thanks for the cool article James.

I to got a kick out of those neat notes also. It looks like you used a line leveler to do it : )

Jokes aside, that's a great idea to put the notes up.

I thought X was a perfect fit for news right out of the box. That timeline is perfect for it.

I think X can be used for more jobs than it can't be used for.

I like the roles export also.

When I first got X I just dove right in. I wish now I had taken more time to learn short cuts. I was just gong to learn it while doing projects but I think I could have saved myself some time and frustration had I did what you did.
