When your tracks can be batch re-arranged with a click to bring just the ones you're currently working with to the top of your screen - you can call yours "lanes" too. Okay?

Are secondary storylines gone? If you can roll trim adjacent connected clips it kind of makes them redundant in a lot of ways.

I wonder if you can trim more than one clip at a time now (beyond top/tail)? Lots of great looking improvements here. Looks like I'll be updating my home system to do some testing!

When you’re done editing, convert your project to a Compound Clip to adjust volume and apply effects across an entire role.

This may not sound like much but it is in fact the standout feature. And something that's been requested by so many users for such a long time.

Can you un-CC a role? This is really cool. But I would like to be able to go back and tweak things in the main timeline if needed, or even do sweetening along the way rather than at the end.

You have to step inside the CC to make changes to the edit, and you can only actually monitor the audio mix when you're at the top level of the CC, which is a bit of a limitation, but otherwise it's great.

Very nice of you Steve, but I deserve nothing. This is the vision and brainpower of the X team who have obviously kept their eyes on a picture bigger than just incrementing on what's already known. Only thing I can claim is justification for my faith that the X team was always working hard to improve things for their users. Pretty happy today. And typing this on the flight to Cupertino to see much more, I hope. Good times ahead!

That doesn't roll the cut. You still can't roll it and edit to music or a beat line avid /PP. You have to drag every cut with a mouse, or use apples clumsy excuse for "extend exit" which actually takes more time than just dragging. Also no two up display for trimming.

I'm curious whether they fixed the problem of using audio filters in the MC nest which created a cut noise on every edit. Another big reason I stopped using the software for multi cam projects.

Now you can select many clips, hit the hot keys and it rolls all the clips.

That's called "top/tail". If only used fcp 7 before X or premier, you may not understand how the extend edit works. PP implemented it even better than avid in cc2014. With one hot key you can roll the exit to wherever the played is. With 7/X this isn't possible. Makes editing to music so much more enjoyable and faster.

You can select multiple clips and top/tail only. You still can't trim multiple clips at once, you can't select multiple clips with the keyboard, you can't slip/slide with the keyboard without first selecting a clip with the mouse, there's still no asymmetrical trim. It's a very small step in the right direction and I'm glad we have it, but FCPXs trim tools are still pretty abysmal. Especially if you compare them to Avid or Premiere.

[Charlie Austin] "What you can do is select connected clips above/below the Primary kb using shortcuts now, no mouse hovering needed..."

Yeah, I've mapped that. It's an improvement, but they could have done much better. It's literally just moving your selection, with no option to select multiple clips. Still very, very mousy. I'd prefer it be able to select multiple clips, and be aware of the mode I'm in, like trim mode, and move selection based on that.

For example, if you're in trim mode already and have an edge selected and choose to move selection up it dumps you out of trim mode and moves the selection up, so you have to re-enter trim for that selected clip. And if you've selected a connected clip, then a trim edge, it doesn't matter if you chose "Select above" or "Select below" - it will always move the selection up. Might be a bug.

It's a good start. Hope it's not another five years before they improve it! Ha!

Re: 10.3

I've run into two bugs so far in cursory testing - one old, one new.

Old - with dual displays, the skimmer/playhead loses focus for the pane it's supposed to be in. You think you are skimming in the timeline - the playhead moves with the mouse, but picture doesn't change in the viewer. Then you realize the focus has shifted to the browser, yet that clip isn't playing either. To fix this you have to click into the browser pane and then back into the timeline pane.

New - with custom project settings, such as 1920x800. The project thumbnail, when displayed in the viewer is distorted (slanted). When you play or resize the view it straightens out.

Re: 10.3

I had a weird issue last night where hitting spacebar in the browser didn't play the clip, but instead twirled it down to reveal keywords/favorites/markers, etc... I trashed my preferences and restarted the program and the issue seems to have gone away. I'm thinking that rebuilding my keyboard settings from scratch would probably be wise.

The zoom bug is still there - if you remap Zoom In/Out to the up/down arrows the behavior is erratic and unusable. Bummed to see that hasn't been addressed.

Is anyone using 10.3 with Blackmagic hardware? Has that improved at all?

In other news, I exported a 1.5XML from 10.3 and imported it into 10.2.3 this morning and it came through without issues. It was an incredibly simply sequence, but it's good to know it worked.

Now - when do we get real background transcoding and rendering? :-)

Agreed. I would also expect it to be flaky in existing, upgraded projects (Libraries). Best to evaluate from a totally clean plate.

Get yourself an AJA TTap. Plug it in when using FCPX. Plug your Blackmagic in when using Resolve. The AJA boxes work very well with FCPX. I'd imagine they have the same hooks as Blackmagic, but what do I know?

Then, if you're running HDMI out of any of those, get one of these: http://www.kanexpro.com/item/?id=SW-HD5X14K

This will give you remote based HDMI switching for ~$40 in 4k.

Re: 10.3

You can have the AJA drivers and Blackmagic drivers installed on the same system and they don't cause any issues? That would be nice, and a testament to how far computing has come! I remember when you couldn't install more than one NLE on a computer without the risk of an epic meltdown. Is this how you're system is set up?

I think we have a T-Tap around here somewhere. I'll have to test it, since I can't give up Blackmagic since I need Resolve, but the Blackmagic/FCPX combo is heartbreakingly bad. Especially for client attended sessions when every other edit you have to restart several times until it "grabs" and plays back without issues.

Right now, the best performing machine I have access to, running FCPX, is my newish 15" Retina MBP - when it's disconnected from external devices of all kinds. It works better than the iMacs, old and new Mac Pros I've worked with, from what I can determine. OTOH - Premiere Pro feels much more fluid on these desktop machines and fine on the MBP, too.

Is this a closed group or something? The posts I see are from Oct 25 or earlier?

Working on a real job today with it. New everything (Library, computer, storage, clean installs on all apps). 700+ 4K Alexa clips. The browser UI gets corrupt occasionally where clip names disappear and leave a blank name field. Happens when you click on the clip to play. Close FCPX and relaunch fixes it. I was using the Organize workspace at the time.

[Oliver Peters] "clip names disappear and leave a blank name field"

I've seen this. Once. Simply hitting ⌘0 fixed it. It's a bug though, yes. Even if a rare one.

I'm definitely seeing flakiness with existing (upgraded) Libraries. Things like the show/hide-browser/timeline commands not working right. Seems to be fine with brand new Libraries.

Is there a way to create custom Projects anymore? For example, in the past I could create a 1920x800 timeline. That doesn't seem to be an option anymore.

Odd, for me it's right where it always was...

Considering the scale of the upgrade I would imagine we'll be seeing a few bugs, just report them when you find them. It's also good that people are posting them on here too. Perhaps we should start a separate thread?

Well, after fiddling a bit with it for ten minutes... I had my first crash. It just popped of... Nothing's changed much. ;-)

[Mike Warmels] "I had my first crash. "

I started a fresh project yesterday. Over 700 4K clips. It crashed after few minutes, but then after that was fine for the rest of the day. No problem on light testing on my home unit, other than the UI bugs I've mentioned. No crashes there. So I guess you have to chalk it up to standard software birthing issues.

Yes, that figures.

10.2 also crashed only once in a while. So I don't expect this to go away entirely. I just thought it was kinda funny: my first experience with 10.3.

Anyway, look forward to working with the audio lanes. To me the best improvement since FCPX allowed for more projects at once and a custom location for the Libraries.

Backups definitely not working as it should. Especially updated libraries from previous iteration.could be my system I guess.

After a few days editing a simple little clip I am finding my eyes do not see the Cut and Blade marks on the timeline so well. Especially not the Blade marks.

It's very dark isn't it?

Or I need to wear glasses now probably.

Sorry to moan. I like everything else.

Feature request would be some kind of Tom Tom like functionality changing colours from daytime to night time.

[James Ewart] "It's very dark isn't it?"

So wouldn't simply changing the role to a lighter color help? ?

I don't think editing roles will allow you to change colour of primary storyline ... not on my system anyway.

[James Ewart] "I don't think editing roles will allow you to change colour of primary storyline ... not on my system anyway."

Every clip has a video and/or audio role assigned to it. Every role has a selectable color. Therefore…

You can change the color of Video Only Clips. Video with Audio components takes the color from the Audio Role. If the audio components have multiple Roles the Video (and collapsed embedded Audio components) are grey. :-)

Anyone else seen the function to adjust fade in and out of video opacity without fully opening video opacity panel once an adjustment had been made. A little slider appears when you 'control v' to make life simpler.

Super cool enhancement for changing fade outs when altering duration of clips.
