Adds Multicam And Other Pro Features. New FCP 7 to FCP X Conversion App Available
A lot of FCP 7 editors were unhappy with Apple’s decision to bring out a new FCP that did not support projects edited on earlier versions. And that was just the beginning of the complaints. See Final Cut Pro X ”“ Conan O’Brian’s Editors Give Opinion. This new FCP X has addressed many of the complaints. Here’s what has been added to FCP X:
1. Multicam Editing
You can actively edit up to 64 active camera angles. You can sync clips by camera time code, camera name, in or out points, markers, or using the source audio
2. Layered PSD files are directly accessible from within FCP X.
3. Media relink
A clone of a project can be opened on any computer so you can carry a drive from place to place and work on it in both places.
4. Advanced Chroma Keying According to Mac World FCP X now has “the best keyer of any NLE.”
3rd party support now provides more plug-ins for FCP X than there were for FCP 7. And the best is the ability to migrate FCP 7 projects to FCP X. This is done by a 3rd party app from Intelligent Assistance, owned by Philip Hodgetts. The app is called “7toX for Final Cut Pro conversion.” It costs $10 and offers full import functionality that allows users to convert older FCP project files into FCP X events.
A VU Forum member who just bought the new FCP X says “My first project was a wedding highlights video which proved rather enjoyable by the end of the edit.”
FCP X is $299.99 from the Apple Store.
