What a day yesterday was, the 10.0.3 update for Final Cut Pro X set the Internet alight. We thought we would take a look at the third party announcements that might have been overshadowed by the news from Cupertino. News from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Intelligent Assistance, Marquis, GenArts, Red Giant and more.
Let's start with the $9.99 7toX app from Intelligent Assistance. This allows you to bring Final Cut Pro 7 projects into FCPX and priced at $9.99 seems a bit of a no brainer, if like us you have drives full of old 6 & 7 projects.
"The lightweight application is simple to use, with drag-and-drop support and progress information. 7toX translates important metadata from your Final Cut Pro 7 Project — including bins, clips and sequences — to a new Event in Final Cut Pro X with the highest fidelity of any translation application for Final Cut Pro. In addition, the application provides clear, detailed reporting after every transfer."
Another converter this time slightly different, Marquis have announced X2Pro will be available at the end of February. The $99.99 app converts and transfers FCPX projects so they will work with Pro Tools.
“We are excited about the introduction of X2Pro Audio Convert,” said Chris Steele, Product Manager of Marquis Broadcast. “It provides a smooth workflow between Final Cut Pro X and Pro Tools, allowing users to take full advantage of the functionality of these world-class products now and in the future.” read more...
