    One thing you could try looking at – unfortunately, you’d have to start the copy over is to go into FCP and delete the render files (which can add up very rapidly) to help get that size down to something more manageable. Robert’s suggestion of using Hedge, Silverstack, or Copy That are how I’d probably do this.

    It depends how you use your Mac, to be honest. Most “regular” users won’t eat up all the ram. That said, if you’re running a tonne of software, browser tabs, and other apps at the same time, the more ram the better. If you’re using Motion, it can chew up memory too. When memory gets filled up (I’m simplifying), macOS writes some of it to the internal SSD to free some up for whatever needs it now, this does (slightly) slow down performance.

    Cons: $400. If the extra money isn’t going to break the bank, I’d recommend it.

    I have two the 27″ 5K LG displays that are *roughly* comparable to the new ASDs – I work in 4K most of the time and I wanted to be able to what I was working on unscaled, so that was a deciding factor for me.

    If they died tomorrow, I’d *very likely* order two ASDs to replace them – not because they’re the best monitors available, but close enough, and they will have solid support from Apple should anything go awry.

    Your decision process will be different, of course. The main question is, do you need a 5K monitor? There are tonnes of fairly good, inexpensive 4K monitors out there if you don’t need the pixels.

    If it maters to you, the LGs (or the Dell Ultrasharps I had before) will never win any awards at how they look.

    How are you doing the subtitles in FCP? If they’re plain FCP titles, you can select them all, and in the inspector, change the size of them all at once. Now, if you had custom text sizes on various subtitles, then they will all be reset to whatever you change it to.

    Loopback could do the trick too. They make amazing tools and support’s been excellent.

    Zoom also has a record-to-cloud feature that one of my clients uses and it works pretty well, so I’d suggest investigating that. Alternatively, I’d suggest looking at Rogue Amoeba’s Audio Highjack: https://rogueamoeba.com/audiohijack/

    I agree, Frank – having the native footage can give you some additional flexibility down the road too.

    I’ll second Craig’s suggestion of ScreenFlow. Brilliant app, worth the money.

    Place the solid (make it an easy to see colour like red) above your video and trim it left and right to that it’s only thick enough to cover the bad part of your background. Then pick the colour picker and select the background of your video – that will match it and you should be good. You can also trim from the top and bottom if you like. Make sense?

    You could add a black colour solid over the video track and crop it to hide the section, or you could double up your track (kill the audio on second one) and crop one from left, other from right to create a gap that you could have a colour solid under. It sounds more complicated than it actually is. ;-P
