What?! You did that with FCPX? Wait until some evil corporate entity comes along and upsets your cushy workflow. What will you do then?? (My guess is you will learn whatever comes along that works within your business model.) Looks nice by the way. Charlie's completely valid criticism notwithstanding.

Dropping a template into FCPX isn't exactly earth-shattering.

Didn't say it shattered the earth. What I said was it works in his business model.

There's a plug in for that too.


*sorry Bill, though really, what did you expect... ;-)

A) it's a title screen cap. Done by a designer. Part of a motion graphics package custom created by a working graphics professiona for this particular "home movie.". (And trust me, Charlie, there are plenty of particles and flares in the actual animation!) Opening a whole string of clips, inserts, montages and bumpers I was tasked to create, edit, assemble and output in FCP-X.

B - the point is that it's kinda, pretty, hugely far from a home movie. My use of X is neither extraordinary, nor particularly innovative. I just used it to cut the kind of professional video work for money that everyone here does day after day, week after week to pay the bills.

C. The way X works with its integrated database and search system cut both hours and lots of grief out of the process. Particularly in moments such as when the project producer (who had to juggle the structural issues of which awards went into which segments) was able to ask me if we'd put clip 87 in segment 2 or segment 3 - and with a couple of keystrokes in a Timeline index, I could tell her in a snap.

And don't get me started on how magnetism let me shift completed show segments around via drag and drop as the show order evolved.

Pretty good for "home movie" software, indeed!

[Bill Davis] "Like I said, nice little "home movie.""

I think, going forward - rather than wasting your time justifying anything you do - the best response to anyone who plays the "home movie" card, should be something similar the end of this clip:

As a former Bostonian, I'm a sucker for films where they get the accent right. Not a stretch for those particular actors though. :-)

I don't know. I don't think I've ever heard you refer to X as "wicked fast."

According to a site search, though, Bill apparently is from Boston:

Yeah, I've been in LA for too long, it's worn off. Still fond of a hearty GFY! though. :-) I suppose that's universal now... ;-)

It is. But it does lose some of the magic without the accent.

Precisely Chris.

Exactly what I was repeatedly told back when I was excited by the possibilities of FCP Legacy around version 2!!!

May history repeat itself!
