    But on further review the video card will be the issue. Double check your card and see if it is compatible (from Snow Leopard system requirements-all newer cards are compatible):

    OpenCL

    requires one of the following graphics cards or graphics processors:

    • NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, GeForce 9600M GT, GeForce 8600M GT, GeForce GT 120, GeForce GT 130, GeForce GTX 285, GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce 8800 GS, Quadro FX 4800, Quadro FX5600
    • ATI Radeon 4850, Radeon 4870

     

     

    Fortunately we have a bunch of extra GT 120 cards around, so we can put them in the few machines that have ATI 2600 cards.

    Back to using Automatic Duck.  Automatic Duck Pro Export 5.0 will work within FCPX to export either AAF or OMF:

    I guess the cheap price of FCP X will offset the cost of getting Automatic Duck so that you can get the audio to where you need.

     

     

    I wonder how many people would impulse spend 49 bucks on a one trick pony like that (and maybe never use it) than will spend 499 because they must?

    I thought that was going to be the case when they touted iMovie import as a feature. FCP 7 import would matter, iMovie isn't a feature at all (for the pro market). At this point it looks like we'd be sticking with FCP 7 until X+1 arrives, and then reviewing. If it doesn't do the stuff we need then, we'll probably look at moving off FCP altogether. Between the licensing issues (I need info on volume licenses, but so far don't have any info from anyone-I am not setting up 20+ MAS accounts) and the feature cull I'm not sure we can even consider this version. We'll see what the next 3 months brings.

    iMovie isn't a feature at all (for the pro  market).

     

    Actually it might be real handy for a large shop needing lots of places for assistants to do the keywording to get media organized and ready to be cut.  I imagine a mac mini with a thunderbolt connection to storage using iMovie to ingest and organize.

    There is ZERO mention of support for RED anywhere on the FCP X page.  There is no RED support. So that KILLS it for high end professionals.  That and other things...but that is BIG.

    Pro Shops wouldn't be caught DEAD using iMovie.  I guess you don't know this, but iMovie does not support tape/tapeless timecode.  It doesn't read or capture the timecode present on the recording media.  It tosses it...disregards it.  Because it is a consumer app and consumers don't need timecode.  Professionals RELY on it. 

     

    So there is no way that any professional house would use iMovie for anything.

    How can it be OUCH for people that want to upgrade? 299 is an upgrade price! LOL

    I feel like we've gone back to FCP 3.02.   I used to  enjoy playing with that version and could make my showreels for the website on it, but I made my living working in Avid back then in 2002.   It was impossible to use FCP for real-world pro projects until v3.04, when they added EDL export .

     

    This feels exactly the same.

     

    I assume they will add XML and OMF export support to FCPX (EDL not much needed any more, thought it still has its uses), but until they do so it is simply a toy and it can't be used to create a real-world project.   Oh, and multicam.   FCP 7 still rules the day for the foreseeable future, and I can't buy FCPX yet.

    I'm going to write an app and post it up for free on the AppStore that will convert from FCPX to formats like OMF, AAF, EDL (single stream and multiple tracks), XML for AFX, Nuke and Fusion.

    sorry for mentioning it again, but it feels exactly like 3 years ago, when iMovie-b appeared and Apple even allowed a 'free' download of vers6.04 to use both apps (iM08 = bubbles / 06 = timeline) simultaneously ... iM08 was mainly useless for the advanced iM-editor (example: no slow-mo), meanwhile, 3 versions later I'm lovin' it!

    I used it once to top and tail and do a quick export. I didn't like it much . I felt dirty .

    I use iMovie on my iPhone more. I hear they are upgrading it to iMovieProX next month

    Your solution may well represent the future - FCPX's openness to plugin architecture may make it a very healthy environment for developers, and that could be a very good thing indeed.   However, it still requires us editors to wait for your fab creations....

  • 899. Re: Final Cut Pro X
    Shane Ross Level 8 Level 8 (41,895 points)

    Exactly Max.  I used FCP 2 and 3 for side projects...short films, demo reels, quick corporate jobs.  But I made my living with Avid.  FCP X might fill the needs of many many people, but I will continue to use FCP 7 and Avid Media Composer to earn my keep. 

     

    Now I can sit back and not answer all those posts that deal with FCP X and "native" support for those formats.  My days of saying "H.264 is not an editing codec" are over.  "Get FCP X...and go away kid, you bother me."

     

    As for Mr. Pi...

    Boris has an app that does this too.  Not free, but not as solid as the Duck.  I think this will prove more difficult than you think.  If you want a rock solid app, that is.
