  • Keyboard for Final Cut Pro

    The new thin keyboard that comes with the Mac Pro is not to my liking.
    It continually runs words together when I type because I'm not hitting the space bar effectively. I'm also having to hit the keys harder just to ensure that the keystroke is recognized.
    I also miss my ps2 PC keyboard that had colour-coded keys for Avid when I was on a PC.
    Can anyone please suggest a usb keyboard that has shortcut keys for Final Cut Pro (latest version) and has extra usb ports (at least one) on the keyboard for the mouse and other usb peripherals and works correctly with a Mac Pro and includes the eject key to open/close the dvd bay doors on the Mac Pro?
    Thanks for any advice.

    As far as 'color coding' your keyboard, I have had great success with a sticker set from
    I know some people want the 'official' color coded keyboard, but the cost of that compared to $20 for a sticker set is something to consider. I have had my set on my keyboard for over two years and have had no problems ... and I edit 5 days a week, eight hours a day so they have been 'put to the test'!!
    good luck

    One of the coolest things I have seen on those is the shuttle control (in place of the arrow keys), but you can just buy one of those separately (USB) for a fraction of the cost. And then you still have the arrow keys. I agree that if you just print out the commands and learn them that is pretty much the same as paying a bunch of money for a keyboard that does the same thing. Pretty unnecessary.

  • Anyone use a 2012 mac mini for final cut pro x?

    I am considering buying a 2012 quad core mini to use for Final Cut pro X.  I've looked everywhere on the web, and can't really find an answer as to whether or not this is a good idea.  The main reason I'd do this over a 2011 refurbished iMac is for the USB 3.0 ports.  I'm currently using a 2010 mid-level iMac, and find that I need to use proxies if I do anything multi-cam.  I do know that buying the mini, thunderbolt display, and mouse/keyboard costs about as much as buying a new 27" iMac.  Would the ivy bridge mini be faster than the 2011 refurbished quad core iMac for rendering and exporting, or slower because of the intel 4000 graphic chip?
    Thanks's an interesting tidbit...320M is supported by OpenCL according to The Oracle, aka Wikipedia
    However, a look at the official Apple Snow Leopard docs suggests that they withdrew support for 320M.
    Sometimes The Oracle is wrong.

  • Can I add a secondary location for Final Cut Pro Documents?

    Hi Guys,
    I'm working on a large project which has taken up most of my 2tb hard drive which I use for my final cut pro documents (capture scratch, render files etc). Is it possible if I plug in another hard drive to use that as a secondary location for final cut pro documents as I have other (smaller) projects which I could be uploading and working on in the mean time? If so, how is this achieved and what are the pros / cons?

    Sure -- go to Final Cut Pro menu on your menu bar and select System Settings.
    The first tab is SCRATCH DISKS -- that's the term too -- not secondary folder for FCP Documents.
    Change it there.
    It has been a while since I've had to deal with this, but FCP used to not remember (feature or bug??) a project's original scratch disk location and if you change it for ONE project it will be changed for ALL future AND past projects... until you change it back.
    Now, that in itself isn't a BAD thing. All that that means is that if you continue to capture material into that old project it will now put it over here instead of over there. Also, other things like render files and such which won't really matter much unless they do... and now you've got stuff spread over a coupla drives.
    FCP's projects don't care. They've already mapped where they need to go to get the video and render files it needs. Move your Scratch Disk 33 times... won't make a difference to the browser and timeline. -- UNTIL you remove one of the important drives. THEN red lines galore! Un renders, missing files... messy messy messy!
    Much better to start and finish a project in scratch disk. Makes for easy cleanup. Kinda like cooking thanksgiving dinner (American??) in 5 houses at once.
    Good luck,

  • Canon EOS MOVIE Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro Now Available...

    There's been so much talk about the 5D, 7D, 550D on this board that I'm going to point to the EOS MOVIE Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro. This is supposed to speed to transcode of Canon Camera H.264 to FCP-friendly formats and let you add more metadata along the way.
    Canon webpage. Under Drivers & Downloads. Once you select your OS, "Mac OS X", the download should appear near the top of the "Software" list.
    Note: (from Quickstart Guide)
    This plug-in software allows you to convert MOV movies shot with an EOS Digital camera into ProRes files at high speed in the (Log & Transfer) window of Apple's Final Cut Pro.
    FWIW: The quick start guide says cameras involved are 7D, 5D, 1D, no mention of 550D. Sort of odd.

    For users in North America to make the Canon EOS REBEL T2i work (550D for Europe):
    1. Install the new Canon EOS MOVIE Plugin-E1 for Final Cut Pro (
    2. Go to Library/Application Support/ProApps/MIO/RAD/Plugins/CanonE1.RADPLug/Contents/Resources/
    2. Open up cameras.plist
    3. After the 7D info add the following lines of code (keeping to the coding structure):
    <string>Canon EOS REBEL T2i</string>
    4. Save the text file. Close it. Everything should work now.

  • Following Media Files Are Not Optimized For Final Cut Pro

    I'm sure you've seen this before and I've tried to search for a thread on it here and fell asleep, so sorry if this is a repeat.
    I have edited projects in Premiere Pro (on my PC) and I have tried to transfer them in FCP. It worked with the exception of two things:
    1. the error message, "Following Media Files Are Not Optimized For Final Cut Pro"
    2. the quality *****! watching it on the playback in FCP it looks great, but then when I burn it to Disc it's pixelated in spots and generally has a lower quality picture.
    I know that it's Standard Def. and can't expect the best, but I've done it before (once or twice) and it didn't seem this bad.
    Can someone suggest anything to help the quality? Should I run my AVIs through MPEG Steamclip to make it a QT file and if so what is the best format in that since there are many to choose from and most I'm not familiar with?
    Thank you,

    I did compress them to DV NTSC then burned it to DVD and the result was no bueno.
    I thought what I would do is try compressing them again before I send them on over to DVDSPRO. Here is a simplified break down of the situation:
    - I have edited the raw footage in Premiere Pro on my PC. They were recorded and captured as SD.
    - I rendered them in Premiere, then transfered the rendered AVI file to FCP.
    - When went to place the files in FCP, I received the warning message; "Following Media Files Are Not Optimized For Final Cut Pro" but I went forward anyways and it allowed me to do so.
    - Originally I went ahead and compressed them from FCP to QT Movie as a DV NTSC, which ended up poorly.
    - Therefore my question is, should I compress them using another file type (other then DV NTSC)? Which leads me to another program that I have called MPEG Streamclip, which offers tons of file types of which I am unfamiliar with most. I want the best quality of course but don't know what file type is the highest going from AVI to a format that can be accepted by FCP and ultimately DVDSPRO. Keeping in mind that I only have FCP5 and do not have Prores.
    Did that make sense?
    Thank you again,

  • Which firewire interface for Final Cut Pro on MacPro?

    I currently own a Presonus Firepod, and it seems to work pretty well, but may sell this when I upgrade from a MacMini to a MacPro. I use my Mac for Logic Pro currently.
    I anticipate running Final Cut Pro in the near future, so I'm wondering about the ability to read/generate SMPTE time code that the MOTU traveller supplies?
    There will be no external mixer, so this interface will connect directly to speakers & headphones. (would be nice to be able to mute speakers and control headphone mix using just the firewire interface).
    I don't anticipate needing more than 2 Mic inputs - and my current mike is a Rode NT1. (As the NT1 is not a top-of-the-line mic, unsure if I should place a lot of emphasis on worrying about the pre-ams?)
    I would like decent mic preamps, and ability to graphically monitor input and output levels (is this graphic monitoring necessary, or is just the single overload indicator sufficient?).
    Which interfaces in $600-$1500 range would work best with Final Cut Pro - and Logic Pro?

    I saw the Traveller ads in Videography mentioning
    time code, so I presumed it had an advantage over
    other interfaces.
    I found this in some ad copy:
    """The Travler provides on-board SMPTE time code synchronization features that allow you to slave your Traveler system to SMPTE time code without a synchronizer. The Traveler provides a DSP-driven phase-lock engine with sophisticated filtering that provides fast lockup times and sub-frame accuracy. The included MOTU SMPTE Console software provides a complete set of tools to generate SMPTE for striping, regenerating or slaving other devices to the computer."""
    So it likely uses an audio port for timecode I/O. However, unless you have external equipment that you want to slave to Logic Pro, (or have Logic slave to) e.g. a timecode DAT, then this really is not necessary. FCP would not see the Travaller as a "controllable" device.
    For Final Cut Pro use, I'd probably shoot in HDV.
    When shooting a green screen near my computer (or
    maybe even on-site), I wondered if there would be an
    advantage to recording the audio thru an interface
    like the traveller.
    The advantage is that you could capture additional mics and audio tracks with your mac while the cameras shoot. Just slate your takes and sync up later.
    Do I actually need an interface that provides time
    code, or is that only needed for movie work?
    I have SMPTE I/O on my Unitor8, directly accessable in Logic Pro. In 8 years I've probably used it twice to capture audio from some modular digital multitracks. So, unless you have some specific need.....
    Maybe it is simpler just to connect to the mic
    directly to the camera's input?
    Indeed. You should always have camera audio available. Anything else is supplemental. Alternatively, you could use the Travaller or RME, etc. as a "live to camera" mixer in a studio situation. Plug your mics into the interface, create a submix and send it to the camera while simultaneously capturing each mic to an individual track in Logic Pro. There are many possibilities.

  • I can't install trial version for final cut pro x

    I can't install trial version for final cut pro x on my computer..

    What are you trying to achieve?  Are you editing movies as a hobby? Or trying to build a business – and, if so, what kind?
    iMovie is the first thing that comes to mind. Not the depth of FCPX, but it can still do some excellent work.

  • MacBook Pro 13" or MacBook Air 13" for Final Cut Pro?

    I am looking at buying either a MacBook Pro 13 inch with 8Gb of RAM, 750 GB, and a 2.8 Ghz i7 Processor or a MacBook Air 13 inch with the 4gb of RAM and a 1.8 Ghz i7 processor. Which is better for Final Cut Pro X? I would rather have the Air, but if the Pro is better (which is what I currently have) that's what I will get.

    Is it a very noticable difference? Will I REALLY notice it? I know that the Pros are more powerful but I just wanted to factor in the SSD in the Air.

    Even though it says 4 GB RAM recommended, I think most experience users woild say 8 GB and up is the real minimum.
