    Don’t recall Grant stating that the Pre-Release wouldn’t have Action. Was it mentioned elsewhere?

    – Have you exported out any versions of your edit? If you’re running out of time, it might be quicker to piece together any segment exports that you may already have.

    – Have you tried opening your XML file on another FCPX system?

    – Do you have XML Versions? If so, have you tried loading an earlier version?

    Still looks like it’ll be best as a short-form editorial/finishing tool doesn’t it? Do like the Versions feature briefly touched upon in one of those videos.

    As an aside, the bigger Agencies here in Mumbai (O&M, BBDO, JWT, Lintas) have picked up multiple seats of 2012 in prep for the 2013 release.

    Looks like a lot more stuff will stay in-house now.

    P also lets you Trim without Rippling the Timeline.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I’ve been cutting commercials and Broadcast for about a decade now on various versions of Final Cut. To be honest, I haven’t had any issues with the Magnetic Timeline. Yes it’s a bit strange at first, but there are numerous ways to bypass the magnetism while editing.

    I’ve only been working on FCPX for a couple of days, but I haven’t ever felt that I needed to change my thinking/approach to cutting. Yeah some of the steps are different, but it’s not that big a deal.

    Not that you implied it was, but I guess I was just surprised, especially after reading about all the issues people were running into and this whole paradigm shift thing.

    The workflow you guys have outlined seems pretty solid.

    I’m re-running an old FCP7 Project through X this way right now on my iMac at home. Looking forward to taking this new Timeline for a spin.

    We bought Grinder originally to both add Timecode (we used to use QT Change, but the Grinder GUI was easier for newer post interns/assists to deal with) and Transcode to ProRes.

    But we’ve stopped using it as a Transcoder as it hangs sometimes when dealing with large amounts of data. Plus Mpeg Streamclip is faster.

    Wow, thanks Tony.

    Very cool of you to take the trouble to do this.

    Thanks for clarifying how the Clip Reference Metadata works Tony.

    Strange that we got different results Re that specific Relink scenario. Will run through it again and see if it wasn’t just down to user error.

    I export out XML in case I have to restore the Project on another System for whatever reason. There’s always a danger with large projects that something goes wrong and you’re left scrambling trying to fix things with time running out. Just another safeguard, alongside Versioning.

    You will end up running your Stills Project and your Edit Project concurrently on occasion. But you don’t want to have them both open all the time as that again impacts on performance.

    With regards to Online/Finishing, that will depend on your budget. If the Producers can spring for a Color Grade in a Grading Suite and a Finishing Session in Smoke that would be ideal. If not, Grading and Finishing on something like a Symphony may be the way to go. Or if there’s no money left over you may have to do it within Final Cut!

    Btw, recent versions of Smoke accept FCP XML, so incase you go that route, the XML will come in handy.
