4-channel audio, anamorphic settings, and markers anyone?
Well, I’m done b*tch*n’. On to figuring out this behemoth! I’m not doing any major projects, just trying to run FCPX through it’s paces. So here goes…
Has anyone brought in any 4-channel audio yet? Do you know the best methods to deal with it in the timeline if you don’t need to use all 4 channels at any given time? I’m currently trying to figure out the best ways to deal with audio while editing. I’m very much used to editing audio while I edit picture. But this seems to be much harder with FCPX. Am I crazy on this point?
Also, I brought in some 4×3 anamorphic 720×486 footage. FCPX sees it as regular 4×3 footage. There doesn’t seem to be a switch anymore. Anyone out there know if there’s a way to get New FCP to see the footage as native anamorphic?
Last, markers aren’t as robust anymore. That said, adding them in the viewer is delightfully easy to do while playing back footage. But, adding them to the timeline seems to be a pain (given the old method – you could drag a marker into the timeline and it would treat it like a subclip who’s in and out is dictated by the next marker).
I’m also noticing lots of timecode and viewer wonkiness. I thought that hitting arrow-up is supposed to take you to the beginning of the clip, but it takes you to the shot above it in the viewer.
More questions to come, I’m sure. Glad the Cow and all its experts are here for all this!
