Singular Software has released a beta version of Plural Eyes for Final Cut Pro X. While FCP X offers the ability to automatically sync audio and video clips natively, it still comes up quite short for all but the simplest of setups. Multi-cam is next to impossible with FCP X; however, the new Plural Eyes beta release gives a glimmer of hope for editing basic multi-cam projects in FCP X by syncing multi-cam footage. Likewise, syncing multiple takes to a single audio clip is a challenge in FCP X, but is something that the new Plural Eyes beta shreds through easily. [Read more…]
Nikon Rumors cites a high level of confidence for a 16.2MP shooter that can capture 11 fps and will use the recently announced XQD memory cards.
Lots of questions about the camera still; however, should these turn out to be the real deal, the Nikon D4 looks to be a direct response to Canon’s recently-introduced EOS 1D X. The AF operation at f/8 is sure to stir the forums and may be enough to sway the frustrated birders out there if the AF speed at f/8 is up to snuff.
Additionally, Nikon has lagged behind on video features thus far in the HDSLR race, so it will be interesting to see if this new flagship steps it up in that department as well and matches up to the seriously upgraded video features in the 1D X.
Final Cut Pro X: Making the Transition is a new book from Final Cut Pro training guru Larry Jordan. For all the jabs and snubs the latest version of FCP has received, there is some merit to the software. It’s certainly not for everyone in its current state; however, it has a lot of power and conveniences that aren’t quite visible on the surface.
In this useful, cut-to-the-chase guide to the program, popular trainer and Final Cut guru Larry Jordan takes these experienced users through all the components of the software, from importing footage and organizing media to export and sharing. Along the way, they’ll learn the best ways to edit footage and add transitions, effects, and filters, do basic color correcting, work with audio, and utilize a variety of HD workflow techniques, to name a few.
Final Cut Pro X: Making the Transition retails for $44.99; however, it is currently available for $29.69 on Amazon.com.
