It's about time you figured out what FCPX was ideally suited for...

Creating stuff that's used in multimillion dollar advertising campaigns for multimillion dollar movies? Yes, ideally suited. Plus, ya know... cats!

No worries... Hey, I'm cutting the spots in Premiere for logistical reasons. But... I'm doing all the fun stuff in X, since I don't rent the other 2 or 3 Adobe apps which would be needed to do things like this. : -)

Wait...a moment ago you said that FCX was used in multi-million dollar campaigns and features...but now say you aren't using it for "logical reasons." What are they? That the companies hiring you think it's not suited? Or is there something about the app itself, or Premiere Pro...that is making it the choice for Vulcans? (logical)

[Shane Ross] " moment ago you said that FCX was used in multi-million dollar campaigns and features"

It is, I've used in on more campaigns than this one, I use it all the time. And i've heard it's been used on some features... ;-)

[Shane Ross] "but now say you aren't using it for "logical reasons.""

No, I said logistical. Different word. :-)

[Shane Ross] "What are they?"

The "logistical" reason was the fact that 4 other editors were on the same campaign using 7 and/or Premiere, Didn't make sense to add a 3rd NLE to the pile. I certainly could have if I wanted to. Like I said, I did all the fun stuff in X.

[Shane Ross] "is there something about the app itself, or Premiere Pro...that is making it the choice for Vulcans? "

lol... maybe it is the choice for Vulcans... or Klingons?

I am now thinking of puns.

Will this be available in a online catalog?
What category does this video belong in?

Sorry, just couldn't resist.

One more, then I am done. What happens when you let fluffy in a Xerox machine? You have a copy cat!

It's nice work, Charlie. I hope you feel good about it no matter how much they tell you FCPX isn't good for anything. :)

Thanks Jeremy. At this point, it doesn't bother me at all what "they" say. Whether it's your main NLE or not, everyone should have X in their arsenal. It lets one easily do a lot of very useful things that "they" are missing out on... Like, you know, make cat videos like this... ;-)

I will not be able to edit train videos in FCP X for some reason. Could it be there are no tracks? I mean trains need tracks.

Just change every metadata instance of the term "tracks" to "rails" - that usually tricks X into allowing the magnetic timeline to work with the footage... ; )

Charlie, I'm still waiting for you to do a Yak video. I haven't seen much since Ren & Stimpy, Season 2, ep 18, The Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen. Something not quite right about this....

What amazes me is that one of your group is a pro still using FCP7. Wow.
