Well Motion 5.1 has arrived - downloading now. Surely FCPX must follow!

Oh and the Apple Store's down...

Well I'm bummed there's not total interface customization BUT FCP now gives me A/V output to my 3rd monitor via GPU!!! I'm running a GTX760 (off the shelf PC version) with dual 27" and 40" client mon. and I can now send full screen up to 40"! Awesome!

Thank you Lance for the little push i needed!

But I will be ordering tonight, hopefully there will be some black tubes left...

I'm still confused by Libraries - now there's Events/Project and Libraries? I'm assuming this will be a good thing?

From what I'm reading in the white paper, What used to be an FCP 7 "project" is now a library. Events are now what were known as bins, and projects are sequences.

Yep just read that too - looks better - no more clunky projects that get too big (feature films) and easy to share or move libraries.

Seems like we got "autosave" as "snapshots" and "backups" now. At least they're intuitive!

Library Backups location
on Dec 19, 2013 at 9:23:34 am

AND There's a library backups location under general preferences. Not totally sure what that means but it's a very good sign we'll have easy archiving ability.

So can I officially tell Bill (and others) "I told you so" since he basically told me to quit trying to make FCP X fit the legacy mold when I wrote at length over and over that libraries equal projects, after reading Alex4Ds findings in the new iMovie?

Updates are free, too.

And Compressor has a new interface... Waiting to download. FCP just finished.

I wonder if it's 64-bit now too?

32-bit so far in my limited testing. I tried to get it to spawn 64-bit subprocesses by choosing what should be AVFoundation tasks (ProRes HQ to ProRes LT or ProRes to H.264 for Apple Devices) and still got 32-bit subprocesses. Qmasterd is (and has been) 64-bit, but it does not seem to be called upon even when enabling clustering and making a "cluster" out of the local machine.

Best,
Andy

Well, crap. Hopefully the output has been improved. Never have cared for the quality of Compressor's output, especially its scaler, yikes.

[Gary Huff] "Well, crap. Hopefully the output has been improved. Never have cared for the quality of Compressor's output, especially its scaler, yikes."

In fairness, the 32-bittedness is to permit compatibility with the legacy formats it still supports. I'm not sure why it also spawns 32-bit processes to handle what had been 64-bit jobs in the last version. I'm also not sure it matters with respect to performance.

Best,
Andy

It probably doesn't now, but it's still nice to have. Though, I think an improvement in the visual output that it does would be more welcome than 64-bit at this point when it gets right down to it.
