great look and concept, i just dont feel like the music necessarily "drives " the piece. Just a little constructive criticism if your looking for it.

Well that is a bright and cheery video. ;)

So Im curious how you handled swapping out your effect shots in FCP X. Can you share your workflow?

Basically I just rendered them out from AE and layered the rendered QT's on top of the rough cut like I would in FCP7. It's not pretty but it's the fastest way to do it for me.

Compound Clips in FCPX translating to PreComposed Comps in AE is awesome. Huge. In the video that wide FX shot is 5 takes. Shot each band member separately on green screen. I made that a compound clip, roughly arranged them in the timeline in FCPX. Then that compound clip comes into AE already a precomposed comp. Sweet!

I was going to make some coffee, but I'm awake now. :)

Not my first choice of music, but the video looks awesome and I certainly can't knock the hustle.

Care to share some details?

What was this shot on? How was the workflow?

Where'd you do the grade?

What was composted in FCP? In AE? Elsewhere?

Any other snippets or things you might have learned along the way?

Nice work, Simon. Glad you got such professional results out of iMovie! ;-D That was a joke!

[Jeremy Garchow] "What was this shot on? How was the workflow?"

5D & 7D

[Jeremy Garchow] "Where'd you do the grade?"

FCPX.

[Jeremy Garchow] "What was composted in FCP? In AE? Elsewhere?"

All in AE. Made rough composites in FCPX and did notice the green screen keyer works pretty well.

I was scared to use FCPX. I learned I really like it. Of course I noticed the bugs others talk about. But it worked. Fool Cut was necessary though. Synch Audio saved me a ton of time synching each band members performance. Im stoked on FCPX. Excited to see it mature. :D
