i didn't check if this got mentioned - but is that the new FCPX doing multicam with the event browser collapsed in the screengrab?

it looks like you can customise interface elements - there doesn't look to be the centre bar timecode toolshelf there? If I'm actually looking at FCPX at all?

Well, it is the NEW version, the one that hasn't been released yet. There might be differences.

nothing wrong with a dab of the zapruder.

I'm certain there are tracks at the bottom. if you squint you can clearly see them.

I am squinting. I can see the typical FRAME MODE video "track" that FCX does, and a thin blue audio line...looks normal to this untrained eye that never used FCX...

Yup. It's looks like working in multi-cam with the event browser hidden.

I don't think there's anything here that gives away any new UI or functionality.

Where's the other monitor?

That is to say, where's the Event Browser?

You can hide the Event Browser window in a single monitor solution if you don't need it. Here, they obviously want more screen real-estate for the multi-cam window. If you're just cutting multi-cam, you don't need it open.

Not like that. It still leaves a linen patch even if I hide the browser.

I was intrigued by the photo that Oliver posted yesterday.



Definitely some similarities. Everything is squarer. Chrome and extra space is reduced all around–the toolbar certainly looks thinner.

If this is where FCPX is headed, I like it. It tightens everything up, de-bubble-izes it a bit.

[nick ring] "de-bubble-izes it a bit."

Such a better term than de-chrome.

To be fair, I think the toolbar appears thinner because on the higher-resolution display. The interface isn't just being scaled up- it's being reconfigured to give you more space. I was initially skeptical that this was anything new, since I'd imagine that the rounded corners on the video clips would probably also be reduced rescaled for the 4K display. But there is at least one key difference-- There's no timeline Index button in the lower right.

It's interesting that in both potential screenshots we've seen, the Event Browser, info, and effects tabs have all been hidden.

I was wondering if the toolbar appeared thinner because of the display, but I decided to go with it being part of the general minimizing of chrome and open spaces. Even on a 4K monitor, wouldn't there be proportional consistency (rounded corners in relation to thumbnail size)?

The absence of the timeline index also suggested that this isn't just a misinterpreted viewing of the current interface. My eyes aren't good enough to tell if they've moved the timeline index to join the other buttons on the right of the toolbar. Whatever they did with it, I hope it remains easily accessible.

I'd prefer the more colloquial term "disbubbleification" - simply because is so very much fun to say.

Speaking of disbubblefication, just take a look at the "favorite sites" page of the new Safari (command-option-1). You don't need Mavericks to download the new safari.

It is decidedly square.

I would be happy if this came to FCPX.

[Shane Ross] "I am squinting."

gag on my part there, I'm really not holding out hope -

continuing zapruder style - the video filmstrip with audio bar and the multicam setup he's pointing at looks a lot like FCPX - but the interface looks to have the centre bar hidden. or incredibly narrow. forgetting the chrome - it basically takes up space:

that centre GUI chunk doesn't look to be in the apple snapshot I reckon.

I do tend to kill all the playback buttons in PPro anytime I use it mind you.

(OT Shane, thanks for putting out a new podcast. I was about to remove my subscription and then boom, you came out with a new episode. I always appreciate your insights. I even go back and re-listen to old episodes to gleed more nuggets of editing wisdom.)

I'm thinking if I were Apple and going to tweak the interface of FCPX, would I reveal it in screen shots a month and a half early? It seems to me that Apple is VERY secretive about their products before an official announcement and they would be very careful to what is being shown publicly.

Personally, I wouldn't read to much into these screen shots. The first screen shots of FCPX two years ago at NAB had a audio waveform toggle at the bottom right of the timeline (ala iMovie), which was removed..



I think Logic Pro X and iMovie 10 (which is actually a stripped down version of FCPX) would be better indications of where FCPX is headed. i.e. "flatter" less distracting UI. But much more exciting the changes in workflow: Project Timelines reside in Events and yet have their own database, freely ejectable Library containers, etc.
