Lion 10.7.5

Aperture 3.4.3

Final Cut Pro X Trial Version 10.0.5


1.  When dragging a picture from Aperture to Final Cut Pro X, the pictures look soft in comparison to how they look in Aperture.  Thoughts or suggestions? 


2. I understand the FCPX 10.0.6 allows for Chapter Markers.  I have looked all afternoon and find nothing that helps me know how to do this.  Any help would be deeply appreciated.  I know I will have to buy and upgrade to 10.0.6, but I wanted to read about the process first.

    I can help with #2:


    You start out my putting a "standard" marker on the timeline.  (Hit the "M" key)




    Choose "chapter."


    Then, you have a "post" marker. (An "orange balloon") Drag this post to choose a "picture" (a frame from your timeline) for your chapter. You also have a dialogue box which allows you to name your chapter

    1. Make sure you are using high quality thumbnails in Aperture. Make sure you are looking at the rendered output using high quality playback.


    2.  Create the marker in the marker dialog set the marker type to chapter and name the marker.
