5 features I miss from Final Cut Pro 7 “Classic”

avid media composer 8 avid media composer subscription bins editing editing editing software editing. post-production nle

All of these items would be welcome features added to other NLEs

By Scott Simmons | December 01, 2014

I spent most of the last week of November working on a job in Final Cut Pro 7; or Final Cut Classic as we seem to call it these days. This was the first FCP7 job I had done in over a year (at least I think as they all run together after awhile). Cutting in FCP7 was at the client’s request and while I have tried to convince them to move to a more modern NLE this job was to be an FCP7 job. It went well and I made a note of five features that I miss when working in other NLEs.

By Kevin P. McAuliffe | November 30, 2014

My recent review of Red Giant Universe got me thinking, after taking a look at some Facebook comments, that there are a lot of users out there who might not know some of the 3rd-party plug-in companies out there, so I thought as a recurring article series, we would take a brief look at all the plug-in companies out there, and what they bring to the table for you, the end user.  I thought I’d start with a company I’m very familiar with, and that is Boris FX.

Decent cheap earphones: backups and stocking stuffers

By Rich Young | November 30, 2014

For event recording, it's good to have emergency sealed headphones, and being extremely portable and cheap, earphones fit the bill. Amazon is touting a selection of Stocking Stuffer Headphones Under $10, and when you land there, you're greeted by "Major Sound with a Minor Price." If you shop for $10 headphones, what can you expect? Probably better than that list. Happily, manufacturers sometimes ship inexpensive products that don't sound half bad.
