Final Cut Pro X…The X stands for ‘Strike One’

by on Jun.22, 2011, under Filmmaking

Apple just released a reboot of their Final Cut Pro video editing application: FPC X. From what I can tell, the X stands for ‘Strike One.’

No?  How’s this…  “They call it FPC-X, I’m thinking FPC-Why?”

Okay Apple, enough joking around. Where's the real FCP upgrade?

Long-distance's the next-best thing to being there.

I’m working on two big editing projects at the moment and for me they’re a great reminder of how far the technology of editing has advanced in recent years, but also what may have been lost along the way. Editor Travis Bleen, writer-producer Andrew Stoneham, and I have just locked the cut on our new short film Coffee & Pie just in time to do the sound and color correction for our premiere in about two weeks at the Bermuda International Film Festival.  And of course, post-production continues on Divergence with editor Tony Randel, assistant editor Mike Canon, and my co-creator Dan Southworth.

The way I work on most editing projects has changed drastically in the past few years.  Once upon a time, editors literally cut and spliced strips of film, so they had to be in a room where the film was.  There was no duplicate set somewhere else for another editor or the director to muck around with.  The editing happened in the room and it was generally a two-person job because while one was cutting and splicing, the other was going and looking for the right piece of film.

Thank goodness those days are over. (continue reading…)
