NAB and Audio:
So sadly time did run away way too fast at NAB … again … who knew
… so i had not as much time as i would liked to have spend for audio stuff but i eventually saw few things in terms of audio.
1st big thing is ProTools 11 (of course)! With all the new stuff in that update it is the most advanced audio post production software again. Its full 64bit, new awesome plugins and plugin system and Enigne, better Mixer, Bussystem, Levels and finally Offline-Bounce and so much more good stuff … ProTools is back!
In terms of Audio Monitors
Sadly I did not saw or look for RCF they have some nice studio speakers i was keen to hear
But I had the chance to listen quickly to the Focal SM9 … they sounded awesome but are a bit too big and a lil expensive
focal.com even though they have smaller systems … also in the higher price range … I really like the sound tho’
But then again i still think KRK Studio-speakers are the best u can get for the money. Even though i have to say i’m getting to like the Samson Resolv A6 i use at the moment. Even tho’ i think i might upgrade to KRK’s again at some point … I just trust them a bit more
And then there was the Tascam DR-60D of course …. a bit big but nice solution …. very pro but not too expensive… should be a solid audio unit for the money.
Well guess thats it for now.
Stay tuned for a Samson Recolv A6 vs. M-Audio BX5 “review”, also i quick look at some but get Podcast-Mic’s and some quick tutorials on video and sound in the next few weeks!
In the meantime … ROCK ON!
Well…i will wear that one all week in Vegas … what about you?
International / US Store
his tutorial is all done in FCPX 10.0.3 (Trial) on MacOS LION 10.7.3
IMPORTANT READ THE REST AFTER U WATCH THE VIDEO … U WILL LEARN MORE DOING THAT!
GO TO VIMEO AND WATCH IT IN 720p HD
here some of basics:
- work on the sound even for the 1st rough edit
- continuity is essential
- get the best actors performance
- talk with & understand/ know the directors needs
- show your edit to a fellow editor
(or any other person who comes along) 4 eyes can see more than 2
- some nice b-roll cut-aways can help to create some tension
- read your titels careful (twice or more) so you don’t miss any typos
(yes i put in one just to show u how easy these can be missed)
- re-shoot if needed
- spend some time for the Color-Grade & Sound-mix …
even it might just be a lil difference in the end it counts
- get a BMW next time
- hold the button down 10 seconds
now go and edit stuff!
The news is huge, still lots of questions though:
Tape-Capture? Filters? Titling? Color? Motion? DVD studio pro? Scopes? … and so on… we have to wait & see … i guess
A roundup of the FCPX by fcp.co
Here we are nearly a week after the Final Cut Pro X sneak preview by EDITBLOG on PVC
Apple dropped the ball… by biscardicreative.com
The “Future” of editing by biscardicreative.com
and more coming at:
Well there are many ways to lern how to use FCP … is youtube realy the best way ?… a friend …who will not mentioned by name “found” this … this might open your eyes what FCP really is capable of :
BTW to learn to use FCP is not the same as to know how to edits a nice piece of film / video / movie - however you would call it … just saying!
very busy back here … seems like everybody want’s everything done by the end of the year right out of the blue
well some gear updates / chances are nearby … i still have some unfinished blog posts in my top drawer and a lot of “test” footage … i will do my best to bring that online in the near feature. (about workflow, sound, lenses & stuff)
… so plz be patient and stay tuned … some lil “updates” can be found at my 550D user’s blog:
in the meantime here a lil lens test i did (u probably know that already )
and some BTS-shots … as proof …we really work back her
Well… every 2nd week or so there are some voices on twitter or Facebook complaining how “not up to date FCP” is compared to Premiere or AVID … well that might be true in some points but don’t forget … a “few months” ago it was the other way around … FCP was ahead of the other two (sorry SONY Vegas & GO
Well to be honest – even that I know of all the advantages of Premiere CS5 & AVID MC5 (especially if it comes down to DSLR footage) I’m not so sure if it really ”find expression” in the end “products” we deliver to clients right know. its not gonna look better or has a magical glow just using the new toys
I’m quite happy with what we are achieving using our FCP workflow. Things are quit busy right know … so i can’t really afford testing something new just for fun in hour “workflow-system” . (an i really talk more about the time & stuff …besides the actual costs of buying new software
So i said it before … just use the tool you are familiar with & know the best … and most important – using it to get the job done so you & your clients are happy. They don’t hire you for the software you are using…. they hire you for the results you are delivering to them ( hopefully in time
And look what we just did over the last several months (years) using an “old” FCP 6 & 7 … just saying ( nothing personal ):
well long time no post … due to a lot of work has to be done.
so here some lil updates:
export settings for vimeo
(you can find it in the “Workflow” section)
Grading with Colorista II (teaser)
(you can find this in the “Grading” section)
i also did add the “its all about audio” post in the “gear” section
i did a lil review on this new lil piece of gear i got & used on a shooting … so now it’s on my GEAR sections as well
check it out … it’s an essential tool for all HDSLR-Shooters
